Safe inside your hands you hold me
Pain and tribulations mold me
I try to run away from you
The pain's too great you put me through
I find myself on my knees to pray
Then you hear the words you long for me to say

Make of me a vessel that you can always use
No matter how you break me, what I win or what I lose
Let me be a vessel pure and holy, perfect in your eyes
Lord, hear me when I cry, for you to make me, a vessel

Deep inside my heart you've shown me
Despite all my sins you've known me
I try to run away again
I break your heart with all my sin
I fall to you with tear-filled eyes
I run to you with broken heart and cry

Make of me a vessel that you can always use
No matter how you break me, what I win or what I lose
Let me be a vessel pure and holy, perfect in your eyes
Lord, hear me when I cry, for you to make me, a vessel

Make me into what you want for me to be
Oh, Lord, may my prayer be
Make of me a vessel that you can always use
No matter how you break me, what I win or what I lose
Let me be a vessel pure and holy, perfect in your eyes
Lord, hear me when I cry, for you to make me, a vessel
Oh Lord make me, a vessel

    A vessel... A vehicle of use the lord jesus can use to bring his peace, his grace, his love to a fallen world. We are fitted for this because he chose us. He loves us. We are in turn to go, allow him to guide us and to use us to build his kingdom
