Diamonds to Coal

CHORUS:

Go ahead and do it Lord, change my diamonds to coal
Go ahead and do it Lord, bring me lower than low
You said a man might gain the world and lose his own soul
So go ahead and do it Lord, change my diamonds to coal

I was thinking I had everything, thinkin’ I was mighty
(diamonds to coal, diamonds to coal)
But lately I’ve been feelin’ all the emptiness inside me
(diamonds to coal, diamonds to coal)
And I can’t ignore the Saviour and I can’t avoid the cross
I’ll need the help the Spirit brings to count my gains as loss (so)

(repeat chorus)

I thought my money was my worth so my wealth was my devotion
(diamonds to coal, diamonds to coal)
My love for treasures on this earth is a chain that must be broken
(diamonds to coal, diamonds to coal)
And I can’t ignore the Saviour and I can’t just walk away
I desire to be redeemed and that is why I’m here to pray

(repeat chorus)
