A Life Surrendered

Today my life surrendered
Before Thy feet I lay
A willing, living offering
I now to Thee convey
-
And in Thy hands, Thy bidding
To do without delay.
Please take this life to mold it
Thine image to display
-
To death put now desires
That others, seeing, may
Your will accomplish fully
As I Your life portray.

I love how you referenced metaphors used in Scripture. The second stanza in particular is evocative of in Isaiah (at least I think it's Isaiah) where God is described as a potter. Very beautiful!

Kind words. I'm pretty crazy about poetry, TBH. Ever collaborate on a poem? It's pretty cool!

Just checked, both Isaiah and Jeremiah mention the Potter, however, Jeremiah is the familiar passage about clay on the potter's wheel.
