James Twyman – Servant Prayer - Songs From The Peace Concerts lyrics

When I am hungry, give me someone that I can feed.
When I am thirsty, show me someone who needs a drink.
When I'm cold, give me someone to keep warm.
When I grieve, give me someone to console.

When my cross grows too heavy and this weight I cannot bare.
And when I need someone to hold to me, and it seems no one is there,
To lighten up my heavy load, give me someone who deserves
To be loved just as I do, give me someone, someone I can serve.

When I need some time, let sit me with one for awhile.
And when my heart's heavy, let me find someone to make smile.
And when I'm humble give me someone that I can praise.
And when I need to be looked after, show me someone that I can raise.
And when I need some understanding, show me someone who needs mine.
And when I think of myself only, draw my thoughts to those who are kind.
And when I'm so poor, show me someone who's needy.
And when my eyes are blind to what is holy,
Let me see the Christ in each one who I feed.
Let me see the Christ, Christ in each one who I feed.
