Servant Of All

This song is by Don Francisco and appears on the album Forever My Friend (2013).

Zebedee's sons both came bowin' down low
They tried to tell Jesus how they thought it should go
"When you reign in your kingdom in power and might
Command that we'll sit on your left and your right."

But Jesus replied, "You just don't understand
What are you asking; oh, what a demand
And it isn't for me to decide or declare
Who'll take these places my Father's prepared."

And the other disciples got a little irate
At the two who'd finagled to be someone great
So Jesus explained to make sure it was clear
The Kingdom of God isn't like it is here
The Kingdom of God isn't like it is here

This world has its rulers that they dare not defy
When their leaders say 'Jump', people ask them 'How high?'
But that ambition to lead, put it out of your head
The way's not to climb; it's by kneeling instead
The way's not to climb; it's by kneeling instead

For I came from a throne that you cannot conceive
To live as a servant to all who believe
How is it you think you can follow me, then
And aim for a life as a leader of men?

That ambition to lead isn't something from God
It's a dream of the world; it's a cheat and a fraud
It will harden your heart 'til you're deaf to the call
That the greatest in heaven is the servant of all
The greatest in heaven is the servant of all

So don't be called 'teacher'; there's only the one
Don't be called 'father'; he's on the Throne
Don't be called 'leader'; it's my place alone
I am your Shepherd, and you are my own

The ambition to lead isn't something from God
It's a dream of the world; it's a cheat and a fraud
It will harden your heart 'til you're deaf to the call
That the greatest in heaven is the servant of all
The greatest in heaven is the servant of all

The greatest in heaven is the servant of all
