ON HIS KNEES

Sue C. Smith and Russell Mauldin

No one said that it was right,
But we were arguing that night
Over who would have the highest place.
We were dusty from the road,
So Jesus laid aside His coat,
Then He wrapped a towel around His waist.

And on His knees He showed us
With compassion and concern.
On His knees He told us
What He knew we'd have to learn
About sacrifice and greatness and humility
All because He loved use,
He loved us on His knees.

As we left the room we talked
And to Gethsemane we walked
Then He asked if we would watch and wait.
If we hadn't gone to sleep
We would have had the chance to see
We'd have known it was for us He prayed.
 
And on His knees He showed us
With compassion and concern.
On His knees He told us
What He knew we'd have to learn
About sacrifice and greatness and humility
All because He loved use,
He loved us on His knees.

I watched Him save a fallen woman,
And make clay to heal a man who could not see.
Now, if I want to follow,
He taught me by example where to be.
He taught me where to be.

And on His knees He showed us
With compassion and concern.
On His knees He told us
What He knew we'd have to learn
About sacrifice and greatness and humility
All because He loved use,
He loved us on His knees.
