As a lifeless lump of clay

Shaped and molded day by day

Smoothed unto perfection

There is a better way.

 

When we come to the Master

Broken, needing to be made whole

Each flaw coming to surface

For Jesus to save our lost soul.

 

For Jesus takes the vessel

Applies His graceful touch

Takes it in His gentle hands

With mercy surely cleans it up.

 

His love fills every crevice

Then refines it by His power

He saves the soul and makes it perfect

Done only by the Savior and His care.

 

By His gentle shaping

Hatred has to flee

Gone is all desire to sin

For the Master has set us free.

 

Shaped and molded by repentance

A vessel now to take courage bold

A new being in Christ

Worth more than silver or gold.

 

The inner one now perfect

The outer under subjection by His will

A vessel to hold salvation

For it has the Father's seal.

 

Tho' the outer daily perishes

The inner stays perfect still

For it's polished by His love

All His promises He will fulfill.

 

Oh, the beauty of the new vessel

Now holding love, joy and peace

Oh, how it does shine

As the Master gives the increase.

 

It will keep on shining

Till we reach the blissful shore

Ahhh the finish ...polished

There we'll want for nothing more.
