Lyrics

I’d Rather Serve

I was climbing up the ladder of success they set before me
Zealous to become a source of Roman pride
Never knowing I was just another prisoner of the empire
Till I saw how Stephen died
What in heaven would possess a man to give himself so gladly?
What on earth could be more precious than his life?
I could not see it till it struck me blind
I’d rather serve in your kingdom than rule in mine
It was like a voice was calling me from one world to another
Suddenly the scales were falling from my eyes
Everything I ever worked for only served to bring division
While every life you touched became entwined
I’d rather serve in your kingdom than rule in mine
I’ve traded riches for mercy’s touch
The love of power for the power of love
I hold my crown before you and I resign
I’d rather serve… I’d rather serve
Now I sitting in the prison where I put those faithful Christians
Yet it seems the more I lose the more I find
When I have a little parchment, I can put my pen to paper
To say I’m freer than the guards outside
I’d rather serve in your kingdom than rule in mine
