The Greatest Among Us
Words & Music: Sally DeFord

He came as a servant, this King among men
To lift and to heal by the power in his hand
He labored unceasingly knowing our need
And he calls us to follow in spirit and deed

The greatest among us taught us to love
To serve one another as he willingly served
And if I would follow him such is my call
For the greatest among us was the servant of all

The greatest among us nourished the weak
Brought hope to the hopeless, and joy to the meek
The sufferer never beseeched him in vain
May I follow the Master in kindness unfeigned


Jesus, to whom all dominion is given
Humbled himself in the service of man
And he calls through the ages, “Come, follow me,”
I will follow the Master where e’er he may lead
