A Worthless Pebble

Albert Ramsay, evangelist from Prince Edward Island, Canada (1913-1993):

“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.”
