IN THE POTTER'S HAND (By: Lois Beckwith)

The potter has the power,
The knowledge, and the skill,
To fashion every vessel
According to his will.

The pattern and the purpose
Of every vessel planned,
Its usefulness and beauty
Are in the potter's hand.

The clay makes no decision,
Has no will of its own,
But yielded to the potter,
His pattern is made known.

And thus the Master Potter
Our service has outlined;
He asks us to be yielded
Unto His Will and Mind.

His purpose to acknowledge,
To listen to His voice,
To let Him plan our pathway,
According to His choice.

A vessel marred and broken,
We may not understand,
But all can be committed
Unto the Potter's hand.

Our Father's way is perfect,
His thought toward us is love;
He's fashioning and molding,
For life with Him above.

To trust the Heavenly Potter.
And let Him mold the clay.
Brings joy, and peace, and blessing,
And happiness alway.
