    The Shaping of a Disciple

    When God wants to drill a man,
    And thrill a man, and skill a man,
    When God wants to mold a man
    To play for Him the noblest part,
    When He yearns with all His heart
    To build so great and bold a man
    That all the world shall be amazed,
    Then watch Gods methods, watch His ways!!
    How He ruthlessly perfects
    Whom He royally elects;
    How He hammers him and hurts him
    And with mighty blows converts him,
    Making shapes and forms which only
    God Himself can understand,
    Even while His man is crying,
    Lifting a beseeching hand...
    Yet God bends but never breaks
    When man's good He undertakes;
    When He uses whom He chooses,
    And with every purpose fuses
    Man to act, and act to man,
    As it was when He began,
    When God tries His splendor out,
    Man will know what He's about!
