Story

LINER NOTES:  All the waiting that takes place in a lifetime and aging, while waiting, lends value to a person like a  fermenting wine-- not that you are actually worth more older than younger; but you are certainly not worth less just because your surface is no longer shiny and new. (We are all going the same direction.)

Also, what is beneath ones' surface needs to be brought out when the time is right, so this is like a prayer for the gold to be mined.  Sometimes you can't do that all by yourself; you need help. And who better to ask for help than the one who created you in the first place?

And also, as a mother my children are like gold, so I am a vessel of gold, if for no other reason.  They are my something finer.

Lyrics

LYRICS:

Smooth off the edges What do you find? Splintered and covered over in time / Beneath is a goldmine

Chorus: Come and take me, Holy Miner Unearth in me something finer Won’t you make me, O Designer into a vessel of gold

Faded from glory not much to behold / Beneath the tarnished shards of old / Lies a vessel of gold

Chorus: Come and take me, Holy Miner Unearth in me something finer Won’t you make me, O Designer into a vessel of gold

Bridge: After all that I’ve been through / You’d think I’d be broken

Instead I’m strong and new / Beautiful and useful

repeat Chorus and end
