The Servant Song

‘Anyone who wants to become great among you must be your servant . . . the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve.’ This sums up the essence of the Christian message. Surely ‘The Servant Song’ lists the ways we can live out this message today:

Will you let me be your servant? Let me be as Christ to you;
Pray that I may have the grace to let you be my servant, too.
We are pilgrims on a journey, we are travellers on the road;
We are here to help each other. Walk the mile and bear the load.
I will hold the Christ-light for you in the night-time of your fear;
I will hold my hand out to you, speak the peace you long to hear.
I will weep when you are weeping; when you laugh I’ll laugh with you.
I will share your joy and sorrow, till we’ve seen this journey through.
