THE OLD CRACKED POT

HE LOOKED DOWN AND SEEN AN OLD CLAY POT, SO WORN AND SO CRACKED,
 INSTEAD OF THROWING IT AWAY ,HE STOOPED DOWN AND PUT IT IN HIS SACK
HE TOOK IT HOME AND MENDED IT AND SOON THE CRACKS WERE GONE,
AND ONCE AGAIN THAT OLD CRACKED POT, HAD A REASON TO GO ON.

I KNOW THIS STORY IT IS TRUE BECAUSE THAT OLD CRACKED POT WAS ME,
AND JESUS TOOK THE CRACKS AWAY, FOR ALL THE WORLD TO SEE.
THANK GOD FOR THE POTTER AND THOSE HANDS THAT MOLD THE CLAY,
AND THANK GOD HE COULD USE ME AND DIDN'T THROW THE CLAY AWAY.

FOR GOD HE IS THE POTTER AND WE ARE EACH HIS CLAY,
THANK GOD IF WE STUMBLE HE'LL MOLD US OVER EVERY DAY..
SO IF YOUR POT GETS CRACKED AND IT LOOKS LIKE IT IS WORN,
LEAVE IT OUT FOR HIM TO FIND , IT WILL BE BRAND NEW BY THE MORN.

I THANK GOD FOR THE POTTER AND I THANK HIM FOR THE CLAY,
I THANK HIM FOR KEEPING ME AND NOT THROWING ME AWAY.
I'M NO LONGER THAT OLD CRACKED POT, JESUS MADE ME ALL BRAND NEW,
AND I PROMISE YOU MY DEAR FRIEND, HE'LL DO THE SAME FOR YOU.
