    I cannot give proof of character without pain

    Nor remove the ache of my child and make it my own

    I cannot make dimes and dollars fall from the oak

    But God can take a humble man and make almost anything

     

    I cannot take a fool and give him pleasant intent

    Nor take my vice and reshape it to blessing

    And it is difficult to take a young man and make him act wise

    But from a humble man, God can make almost anything

     

    I cannot turn a squirrel into a bounding deer

    Nor remodel a brisket into an apple crisp

    I cannot take envy or jealousy and make a friend

    But with a humble man, God can make anything
