03. Black Coal

We Need Each Other
by Sanctus Real



 

Do you believe in the restoration of a broken life?
Hiding behind a face, yeah, you never know what you might find
There in the darkness beneath the surface of time and space
Could be a treasure that you’d only see through the eyes of grace
Looking for …

A diamond in the black coal
It feels good when you strike gold
A diamond in the black coal
If you never look then you’re never going to know

It’s so sad when something so radiant is kept from the light
‘Cause I’ve seen divine transformation that Jesus provides

And like a jeweler with a lifeless gemstone, yeah, He can make you shine
You could be a …

A diamond in the black coal
It feels good when you strike gold
A diamond in the black coal
You gotta look or you’re never going to know

Precious diamonds, brilliant, shining
It’s not always what you see
A good heart is just like a diamond in the black coal

Behind the Song:
'This song is about finding the beauty within. When you dig past all the scars, pain, or tragedy that can shape a person's life, you find the beauty. It's about showing love and compassion to those who have been broken and helping them shine like a diamond.' - Pete Prevost (Sanctus Real)
