The Smith


The smith heats the iron
And beats the iron
Seemingly without mercy
Until it's shaped to serve him well. 

The Lord heats his own
And beats his own
Seemingly without mercy
Until we're shaped to serve him well.

There's reason for heating
And reason for beating.
The one who heats and beats will stop
As soon as the shaping's done.

FOR THOSE WHOM THE LORD LOVES HE DISCIPLINES,
AND HE SCOURGES EVERY SON WHOM HE RECEIVES.

--Hebrews 12:6 NASB
