1.  Lord, help us walk Your servant way

Wherever love may lead

And bending low, forgetting self,

Each serve the other’s need.

2.  You came to earth, O Christ, as lord,

But pow’r You laid aside.

You lived Your years in servanthood;

In lowliness You died.

3.  No golden scepter but a towel

You place within the hands

Of those who seek to follow You

And live by Your commands.

4.  You bid us bend our human pride

Nor count ourselves above

The lowest place, the meanest task

That waits the gift of love.

5.  Lord, help us walk Your servant way

Wherever love may lead

And, bending low, forgetting self,

Each serve the other’s need.
