Servant Song

Somewhere along The Way we were introduced to a very pretty song that seemed to fit our journey.  We found that people from all backgrounds and countries and religions around the world seemed to have open, generous hearts while on the Camino.  They had a "what's mine is yours" attitude when a complete stranger had a need...for a bandage, a sleeping aid, or some duct tape. It seemed that everyone (well, almost everyone) wanted others to succeed.  We had a kinship, a brotherhood, a like minded spirit.  It was an amazing thing to experience all along The Way.

 Servant Song was written back in the 1970s by Richard Gaillard from New Zealand.

Will you let me be your servant
Let me be as Christ to you
Pray that I might have the grace
To let you be my servant too

We are pilgrims on the journey
We are brothers on the road
We are here to help each other
Walk the mile and bear the load

I will hold the Christ light for you
In the night time of your fear
I will hold my hand out to you
Speak the peace you long to hear

I will weep when you are seeking
When you laugh, I'll laugh with you
I will share your joy and sorrow
Till we've seen this journey through

When we sing to God in heaven
We shall find such harmony
Born to all we've known together
Of Christ's love and agony
