Only a Worthless Pebble (Poem by Albert Ramsay)

Only a Worthless Pebble

by Albert Ramsay

Albert Ramsay, evangelist from Prince Edward Island, Canada (1913-1993) penned the following lines about his own experience of salvation:

“I was only a worthless pebble upon the beach of time,
Yet He stooped and declared to heaven “I have made this pebble mine”!
And this is why I serve Him as I think of that crowded beach,
And shudder: that when He was passing I might have been out of reach,
And left like the other pebbles to never be touched by His hand
And tossed by the waves of life’s ocean and buried at last in the sand.”
