In the Potter’s Hand

In the Potter’s Hand”

~~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.


O LORD, thou art our Father; we are the clay, and Thou our potter; and we all are the work of Thy hand. Isaiah 64:8

Shall the clay say to Him that fashion it, What make Thou? Isaiah 45:9

Cannot I do with you as this potter? said the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are ye in Mine hand. Jeremiah 18:6

Hath not the potter power over the clay? Romans 9:21

For IT IS GOD WHICH WORKETH IN YOU both to will and to do of HIS good pleasure. Philippians 2:13
