Being a Servant

Standard
Brother, 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, tooWe are pilgrims on a journey
We are brothers on the road
We are here to help each other
Walk the mile and bear the load

I will hold the Christlight 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

When we sing to God in heaven
We shall find such harmony
Born of all we’ve known together
Of Christ’s love and agonyBrother, 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

© 1977 Scripture in Song

Beth Ann’s post reminded me of this song, which has been a favorite of mine for a long time. I’m sure you can go to you tube if you want to listen to it.  As part of the church, we are servants to one another and to others.  Once again I think, who wouldn’t want to be part of this?  Who wouldn’t want to have that kind of purpose and companionship?

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.  By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”  John 13:34-35
