Ofttimes during my earthly journey I long to be in my home on high But God says "It's not your time to go to the land of By and By" So I think I'll just keep on going and toiling along my pilgrim way And hope someday, "Well done my faithful servant" I will hear my Savior say
I've been sorely tried and tempted and failed so many a test But now I want to start over and give the Lord my best He has done so much for me and I can never thank him enough He raises me up from my sick bed and tells me to be tough
He heals the brokenhearted and their wounds he binds all up And says to his dear children "Come and dine with me and sup" He loves to give his strength to people who are faint and weak Jesus has the power we need because he is so lowly and meek
I thank the Lord for his love and for never giving up on me He's the potter and I'm the clay to make me what I should be He goes with me in the valley and on the mountain top And forever throughout eternity his love will never stop
Isaiah 64:8 But now, O Lord, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.
