Verse 1:
Bm11                A69            Gmaj7
    From heaven You came, helpless Babe,
D2/A            D2          Gmaj9     D2/F♯     A6/E
    Entered our world, Your glo    -   ry       veiled;
Bm11           A69          Gmaj7
    Not to be served but to serve,
D2/A              D2        Gmaj9     D2/F♯    A6/E
    And give Your life that we        might    live.
    Chorus:
                D   A             Bm    D/F♯
    This is our God,  the Servant King,
                G      A       D   A
    He calls us now to follow Him,
                 D          D7/F♯      G     Em
    To bring our lives as a daily offering
                    D   A              D    G/D    D
    1.2. Of worship to     the Servant King.
                      D   A             D       A
    3.4.5. Of worship to    the Servant King. [Chorus Repeat]
Verse 2:
Bm               D/F♯      Gmaj7
    There in the garden of tears,
A            D/F♯    G     D/F♯   A
    My heavy load he chose to     bear;
Bm7                D/F♯       Gmaj7
    His heart with sorrow was torn,
A               D/F♯      G      D/F♯   Asus4    A
    'Yet not My will but Yours,' He    said.
Verse 3:
Bm               D/F♯          Gmaj7
    Come see His hands and His feet,
A                  D/F♯     G     D/F♯  A
    The scars that speak of sac - ri -  fice;
Bm7                  D/F♯       Gmaj7
    Hands that flung stars into space
A            D/F♯      G  D/F♯   Asus4    A
    To cruel nails surren  -     dered.
Mid section:
D                             A                   Bm
    We bring our lives for You, a sacrifice for You.
                     G                        D
In view of love so true, we are changed, renewed. [Repeat]

From heaven You came, helpless babe,
Entered our world, Your glory veiled;
Not to be served but to serve,
And give Your life that we might live.

This is our God, the Servant King,
He calls us now to follow Him,
To bring our lives as a daily offering
Of worship to the Servant King.

There in the garden of tears,
My heavy load He chose to bear;
His heart with sorrow was torn,
'Yet not My will but Yours,' He said.

Come see His hands and His feet,
The scars that speak of sacrifice;
Hands that flung stars into space
To cruel nails surrendered.

So let us learn how to serve,
And in our lives enthrone Him;
Each other's needs to prefer,
For it is Christ we're serving.
