The Servant King Lyrics

From heaven You came helpless babe,
And taught our world, Your glory veiled,
Not to be served, but to serve,
You gave Your life, That we might live.

CHORUS
This is our God, The servant King
He calls us now, to follow Him,
To bring our lives, as a daily offering,
Of worship to, the servant King.

There in the garden of tears,
My heavy load, He chose to bear,
His heart with sorrow was torn,
Yet not My will, but Yours He said.

CHORUS

Come see His hands and His feet,
The scars that speak of sacrifice,
Hand that flung stars into space,
To cruel nails surrendered.

CHORUS

So let us learn how to serve,
And in our lives enthrone Him,
Each others needs to prefer,
For it is Christ we're serving.

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 King
He calls us now to follow Him
To bring our lives as a daily offering
Of worship to the Servant King

There in the garden of tears
My heavy load He chose to bear
His heart with sorrow was tom
"Yet not My will but Yours", He said

Come see His hands and His feet
The scars that speak of sacrifice
Hands that flung stars into space
To cruel nails surrendered

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
