One of the great joys for me is stumbling upon a powerful piece of music that moves me to an experience of worship and helps me to reflect on my relationship with God and my mission to the world. That happened recently when I encountered the song, Hearts of Servants by Shane Barnard of Shane & Shane.

The song, sung heartbreakingly well by the duo, is a powerful Lenten reflection upon how we are called to have the hearts of servants, imitating Christ who was a perfect Servant to His People. Here are the simple words:

Jesus, You are
Jesus, You were
Jesus, You will always be
a perfect servant to us
a perfect servant to death
even death on a cross

give us a picture of Your face
show us the measure of Your grace
reveal the love of the Father
put within us tenderness
release from us all selfishness
we'll consider them better
we are Yours
give us hearts of servants

(philippians 2:3-8)

If you are interested and you'd like to listen to the song, I have it playing on my MySpace page. Simply click here and listen once you get to the page.
