  A pile of clay
what is it to be?
Only the Master's eyes can see
His hands will push and pull
He will form it with care
The Master's eyes will see
what shape it will be

His fingers will work with great care
A little clay here a little clay there
Only the Master can see
What shape it will be

Will it be great will it be Bold
In the end what will it hold
Only the Master will see
What shape it will be

What could this clay be
Could it be you could it be me
Only the Master's eyes will see
What shape it will really be

This poem is reference to the Potter's house in Jeremiah 18:4 KJV.

"And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it."

Is not it wonderful to know that God is the potter that molds and shapes our lives? He can reshape us as useful vessels!
