A Clay Pot Empty – v3

Happy in my emptiness
pouring out the world
my selfishness, my control;
A clay pot empty, ready,
to be filled with the Lord

His love raining down
filling my empty cup;
my body turned over
so that I may be poured out,
that other may be filled

Sharing as we are led
as we have been gifted;
We are filled with God’s living waters
pouring out our blessings
calming the troubled seas

A balm we can offer
the message of salvation;
the Spirit burning within us
offering grace and mercy,
that all may come to believe.
