arr. Larry Nickel


Slowly develops in our lives – fabric of strange design
lovely – a motif here and there – made from a golden line
Shimmering rays, like sunlight fair
creating pleasure in the air
giving the weaver clothes to wear –
strands of the finest gold


Handing us every tool we need, carefully we are led
There on the loom the sight appears
cloth of a golden thread
Weaving with diligence and aim
happy and true in joy and pain
finding our work is not in vain –
strands of the finest gold


Jesus, who knows our hearts intent, measures the cloth to suit
Seeking in every weaver’s work purpose and joy renewed
Willing to lend a skillful hand, where weaving makes a strong demand
guiding the church as He has planned –

strands of the finest gold

Working day rushes to a close – were our ambitions filled?
so many flaws and then we see strands of the finest gold
Jesus who came to teach the trade
covers each error we have made
leaving us lives that never fade
strands of the finest gold
