I Came To Serve
By Cyndi Aarrestad
I was reading the Biblical account of how Jesus washed His disciples feet, and then taught them the message of how He had come to serve, showing them that this was to be our way of living as well. The words and music of the chorus came so forcefully to me, and the rest of the song just dropped into my heart. It's one of my favorites, and I hope it blesses and encourages you to "go and do the same"! - Cyndi Aarrestad, Fruit For The Master, 29 January 2012
A towel round His waist, and love in His eyes
A basin in His hands, they watched Him in surprise
As He knelt to wash their feet, like the humblest of men
Then gently He explained, what they could not understand
I came to serve, I came to give
I'll die to show men how to live
If I your Lord and Master came
To be a servant; Go and do the same
They spoke among themselves, who the greatest would be
He took a little child, and set him on His knee
He said, to be the first, you must be servant of all
And ministering to needs, is my true disciples call
He took upon Himself, the form of a man
And in obedience, fulfilled His Fathera019s plan
He humbly walked this earth, as a servant to the lost
And gave Himself away, when He died upon the cross
He came to serve, He came to give
He died to show men how to live
If He our Lord and Master came
To be a servant We must do the same
