They told me to shine like a diamond, like a diamond shine.
Bring value to this world they said, show it what’s inside.
Put your heart on the line for what you believe, lay it all out.
Never ceasing to out-do yourself, never leaving yourself any doubt.
What you possess can turn this world upside down, making it a lot better.
Speaking words of truth, letting them become your verbal letter.
Representing your name with all honor, respect, dignity and class.
Only lifting others up with encouragement, putting their needs first and yours last.
So, shine like a diamond they told me, like a diamond shine.
For if you give this world your best, God will make your future truly divine.
