The Servant Song

Will you 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.

We are pilgrims on a journey.
We are trav’llers on the road.
We are here to help each other walk the mile and bear the load.

I will hold the Christ light 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,
borne of all we’ve known together of Christ’s love and agony.

Lyrics of the song from Bukas Palad – a Filipino Singing Group

“It takes great humility to wash someone else’s feet. Likewise, it is humbling to have one’s feet washed by another. Following the example of Christ, we pray that we may have the grace to be able to serve others and the humility to allow others to serve us as well.”
