Selfless

Selfless

Every move You made was in surrender, every word You said

Was in love showing us the heart of the Father

Everyone You healed was with compassion and the life

You lived and gave was the selfless life of a servant

**

Jesus, lately I’ve been thinking

That I spend way too much time thinking about me

I can hear your Spirit call for me to take up my cross and deny myself

And to lay down my life and follow You

**

 Every where I look all around me, everywhere I hear

The cries of those in need of the heart of the Father

Needing to be healed with compassion, needing to be filled

With the selfless life of the One who came as a servant

**

 Jesus, lately I’ve been thinking

That I spend way too much time thinking about me

I can hear your Spirit call for me to take up my cross and deny myself

And to lay down my life and follow you

**

There are people You place in my life torn and broken up inside

They need to hear about You Lord, about Your cross, about Your blood

But I just pass them by and leave them lying there dying and bleeding

Still I go to church each week and I’ve somehow made it all about me

Yeah, I sound so sincere when I pray, “Lord, draw me near”

And I sing for joy all the while Your Spirit is grieving

**

  Jesus, lately I’ve been thinking

That I spend way too much time thinking about me

I can hear your Spirit call for me to take up my cross and deny myself

And to lay down my life and follow you

One thought on “Selfless

  1. I’ve been wrapped up in myself way too much. I need to trust Him and give it all to Him. The past few days have been terrible and I have made some stupid mistakes because I was only thinking of me. I need a shift in my focus from me to Him!
