Treasure In Jars Of Clay
(10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts)

Treasure In Jars Of Clay

We have this treasure in jars of clay
All because of His surpassing Mercy,
To show that the Power is His way
To manifest His purpose and His Glory.

Nothing in us can earn such worth
And nothing we can do will add to it,
We present His truth, we do not distort-
Set it forth plainly in our ministry.

We declare His Word, adding no man's teachings-
To change hearts of men, give them peace,
For all of these come from His own working
The Grace received, our eternal bliss!

This is about death. The bed is an elaborate or ornate coffin.

A computer reading this just ruins it. Hear you can here the poem in a touching context. https: //www.youtube.com/watch? v=uGeqdYTaZbs&feature=youtu.be
