600 (L.M.) Isaac Watts

Behold the potter and the clay:

He forms his vessels as he please;

Such is our God, and such are we,

The subjects of His high decrees.

Doth not the workman's pow'r extend

O'er all the mass, which part to choose

And mold it for a nobler end,

And which to leave for viler use?

May not the sov'reign Lord on high

Dispense His favors as He will,

Choose some to life, while others die,

And yet be just and gracious still?

Shall man reply against the Lord,

And call his Maker's ways unjust,

The thunder of Whose dreadful word

Can crush a thousand worlds to dust?

But, O my soul! if truth so bright

Should dazzle and confound thy sight,

Yet still His written will obey,

And wait the great decisive day.

Then He shall make His justice known,

And the whole world before His throne

With joy or terror shall confess

The glory of His righteousness.
