From heaven you came, helpless babe,
Entered our world, your glory veiled;
Not to be served, but to serve
And give your life, that we might live.
This is our God, the Servant KingThere in the garden of tears
He calls us now to follow him
To bring our lives as a daily offering
Of worship to the Servant King.
My heavy load he chose to bear
His heart with sorrow was torn
'Yet not My will but Yours,' he said. (Refrain)
Come see His hands and his feet
The scars that speak of sacrifice
Hands that flung stars into space
To cruel nails surrendered. (Refrain)
So let us learn how to serve
And in our lives enthrone him
Each other's needs to prefer
For it is Christ we're serving. (Refrain)
