Have Thine Own Way

Words: Adelaide A. Pollard 1862-1934
Music: George C. Stebbins 1846-1945

“Then I went down to the potter’s house and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels.”  Jeremiah 18:3

In 1902, Mrs. Pollard was going through some difficult times.  She went to a prayer meeting where an elderly woman prayed to know God’s will.  Mrs. Pollard went home and studied the potter and clay story found in Jeremiah.  That very same night, she wrote this popular consecration hymn.  It has helped many souls wanting to submit to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

Prayer Focus: Lord, You are the potter.  Again I say, You are the potter, and I and the clay.
