I am second, I am not mine.
I put your needs far above me.
Any glory I will decline.
My God is master of me.
I am second, I am not first.
Through the best times and through the worst
Ive a God whos first in my mind,
And I know that he loves me.

I must never be number one.
I will put others before me.
I must not leave Gods work undone.
More of Him, and not more me.
I am second, I am not first.
Through the best times and through the worst
My example is Gods own son,
Giving life to restore me.

God should always be in first place
Because of what hes done for me.
He has given me all his grace
And now he watches oer me.
I am second, I am not first.
Through the best times and through the worst
I am living in his embrace.
He will never ignore me.
