Do you feel the tensions rise
Do you know why we always fight
To be better, better than you
And you better than me

I am not what you see, oh no
Not much more than a slave I wish to be
I am not what you see
Not much more a slave I should be
Nothing more, a slave I will be

How could I ever think to be more
than the one who created me
I watched him do all that he said, his words were
"Be a servant to all"

I am not what you see, oh no
Not much more than a slave I wish to be
I am not what you see
Not much more a slave I should be
Nothing more, a slave I will be

Only one deserves this exaltation
Only one deserves this elevation
But even He, He laid it down to serve on bended knee

I am not what you see, oh no
Not much more than a slave I wish to be
I am not what you see
Not much more a slave I should be
Nothing more, a slave I will be

    General Commentawesome song! i think the two lines
    "How could I ever think to be more
    than the one who created me"
    have impacted me most. they just let me know everytime i hear them how small i am compared to god. but in a way it's also comforting and humbling.
