Some servants serve at the front gate,

Some servants serve in the lawn,

Some servants served You early

They served post Creation’s dawn.

Some servants serve in the kitchen,

Some servants serve in the field,

Some even serve You by stitch’n;

All serve for All they can yield.

His faithful follower I would be, For by His hand He leadeth me.
