The Holy Spirit came to live
In ordinary pots of clay.
The Spirit was poured out to give
God's holiness to us today.
It's not the richest who display
His presence fully hour by hour.
It's ordinary pots, away
From earth's perfections and earth's power.
The pots he lives in chip and crack
And end up broken in the ground,
But in eternity they're back
Alive and fresh and new and round.
But we have this treasure in jars of clay,
to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.
--2 Corinthians 4:7
