“I know,” says the clay

The Potter perfecting the clay

The clay knows God’s plans

I know…says the clay


I know you love me

and you have a plan, for me

And I know, they are plans for good,

Not for calamity

to give me a future and a hope

I need to put my hope in you

So  I don’t despair.


The Potter wants to process the clay

You show me, where you wanna take me

You then take me back, from the beginning

To start with me, from the beginning

To walk the walk, with me

I know you, have work for me

I am fully aware that, I  am not perfect

And I know, I am a work in progress

You are the potter, I am the clay

I know…I know….


The process Ain’t easy for the clay

I know the process,

 A process; that ain’t easy  for me

The kneading, the  molding , and the fire

In a great house are many vessels

Some to honor and some to dishonor

But, I want to qualify as a vessel of honor

Fit, for the Master’s use

I know….I know…..


“Purge me O Lord,’ the clay says

Purge me O Lord,

for,I wanna become a vessel of honor

that is ,A living sacrifice, holy

and  acceptable  unto you.

A career, of your goodness  in all purity

That I do know so well.

Purify me by your Word

Give me hunger to read it

and study it

Grand me the understanding

for I don’t want to run amiss

For those that run do so according to rules

give me grace for discipline

give me grace for purity


Make me exactly what you want me to be

a pot

a jug

a cup

as long as its unto honor Lord

Grand me the grace Lord

To run this race

For it is not by power

but by your Spirit
