Saved To Serve

by Tim O'Hearn

[Piano version of music] [Vocal sound file, sung by the composer] [Video, sung by the composer] [Score of song]

He that is greatest
Should be as the younger
And he that is chief
As he that would serve.
I’m saved to serve,
Not to sit back;
Not to be served;
Like Jesus, to serve.

Filling a basin
And taking a towel,
Our Lord washed their feet.
Like him we should serve.


I am your servant
And you are my servant.
We both serve one head,
And us all he serves.
