House of Clay
I have finished now with this house of clay
Please kindly and carefully lay it away,
And let me rest from this life of pain,
Failing in sunshine, storm and rain.
Trying to help my family and friends
Turning no needy from my door
Many times I was misunderstood
When I had done the best 1 could.
I’m tired now so let me rest
Don’t cry, don’t you know
God knows best?
I have another house you know,
Where God’s redeemed can go.
I don’t need this house of clay
So tenderly, carefully lay it away.
