Can the clay tell the potter, what to
make of them?
Does it dare inquire, of Him at all
Can they tell God what they choose to be
when it's much better, to heed the call
He starts us off from just a clump
working on us, from day to day
Molding and making us, like fine silver
fashioning each of us, in His own way
He takes His time to clear, away the
lumps
Shaping the image for, His purpose
and desire
Smoothing the surface, of every little
bump
so to be prom and fit, for the masters
hire
Every little dent, will need His
attention
Well groomed and all panned out
and His work is proved by patience and
care
leaving no room for, the clay to ever
doubt
That the potter has control from head
to toe
and He knows what to do and how
and as His hands of love, fulfills it's
job
The clay accepts it, with a praise
and a bow
So O' clay be still, and let God work
Let Him make you, what He wants you
to be
Now just be patient, and let Him have
His way
for this is what, it will take for you
and me
