Earthen Vessels

          2 Corinthians 4:7

Oh, we have this glorious treasure
      In a vessel made of clay,
Which has many imperfections,
      That we cannot wipe away.

But we don’t despise the vessel,
      Though it’s marred with many a scratch,
For the treasure that is in it
      We can’t duplicate or match.

God commanded light from darkness
      And has shined it in our hearts,
Having chosen earthen vessels
      For the glory He imparts.

They may seem like poor containers
      For the faith esteemed as gold,
But their value should be measured
      By the precious things they hold.

The earthen vessels are little dots in this picture of a very small portion of  the earth.
