I saw a man kneeling on the floor
And wondered what he was down there for.
Was it prayer that drove him to his knees,
A struggle with questions only he will see?
Was it pain greater than he could bear,
Or humbleness which put him there?
All of these are very good
When to God bring us they would,
There is another reason though,
For a man to be that low,
And it pleases God to see us so
When we place others first,
To serve them is for what we thirst,
For he knelt in order to clean up
After brothers who spilled their cup.
It may not seem like such a chore
We are supposed to do this and more,
But to me, Jesus he did show
And as a servant taught me to grow.
