Kutless – Not What You See lyrics

Do you feel the tensions rise?
Do you know why we always fight?
To be better, better than you
And you better than me

I am not what you see, oh no
Not much more than a slave I wish to be
I am not what you see
Not much more than a slave I should be
Nothing more, a slave I will be

How could I ever think to be more
Than the One who created me?
I watched Him do all that He said
His words were "Be a servant to all"

Only One deserves this exaltation
Only One deserves this elevation
But even He, He laid it down
To serve on bended knee
