We are Jars of Clay
We are all jars of clay,
With gifts to offer each day.
The things inside us are meant to be shared
Only then will others see how you have cared
Let go of the fear, pride, and self-life
Choose love and peace, healing all strife
Covered in His Blood we will not waver,
For any of our chains are but of paper.
Now Twice-born, we are Children of the King
Nothing to the table did we bring.
Jesus did it all, He made scarlet into pure white
It’s a done deal! Settle it! Now give in the fight!
Our last name is secure and never changing
Only our old man is forever fading.
Father has us in the palm of His hand
So even failures can be redeemed by His plan.
In the light of His forever love,
Let us become fathers who rise up!
As we take up the torch and for others fight
Even the smallest acts of love shine bright.
Serve, invest, intercede, keep alert
Loving others no matter the hurt.
For others, our lives are laid on the altar
To keep our sisters and brothers from falter.
Bust out, Break forth, Begin
It’s selfish to keep His jewels within.
We all are broken, all need help
That is part of what Life is about.
Problems don’t disqualify
They will help us to Testify!
Choose what your legacy will be?
He wants to have a testimony!
Use your words to proclaim His Glory
Weaknesses overcome, will make a great story.
Instead of quietly soaking it in
Share your feelings and thoughts, not only your sin.
Even choosing one person to tell
What happens inside you or when you fell
Express conviction, hopes, and dreams
For these things each form the seams
Of the beautiful fabric that is being sewn
Together of lives dancing around His Throne!
Children, Fathers, and Young Men,
Don’t hide away what is of Him.
When you make your words true,
Then no apology is due.
Be bold, risk, put it all on the line
In following Him, everything will be just fine!
Attack the enemy, go for the walls!
In the end, there will be no draws.
So let your light shine like stars Bright and Righteous!
For our King reigns and will forever reign Victorious!
