Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,
for I am gentle and humble in heart
(Matthew 11:9; NLT).
1. Please guide me
On your gentle way,
In all I think, and say, and do.
Then I will gladly serve all those
Whose lives I touch, Lord,
Just like you,
2. Please lead me
On your humble way,
And let me share your heart and mind.
Then I will gladly love all those
I meet, Lord,
And all humankind.
3. Please keep me
On your narrow way,
Although its comforts may be few.
Then I will gladly be the slave
Of everyone, Lord,
Just like you.
1. Be gentle to all (2 Timothy 2:24; NKJV).
We take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5; NIV).
I will watch what I do and not sin in what I say (Psalm 39:1; NLT).
Do everything with love (1 Corinthians 16:14; NLT).
Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, “Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last, and the servant of all” (Mark 9:35; NIV).
Even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others (Mark 10:45; NLT).
2. Strive to be humble (Zephaniah 2:3; NET).
Look, your king is coming to you. He is righteous and victorious, yet he is humble (Zechariah 9:9; NLT).
Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus (Philippians 2:5; NKJV).
The Lord – who is the Spirit – makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image (2 Corinthians 3:18; NLT).
May the Lord make your love for one another and for all people grow and overflow (1 Thessalonians 3:12; NLT).
3. The gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life (Matthew 7:14; NASB).
Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head (Luke 9:58; NKJV).
Whoever wants to be first among you must be the slave of everyone else (Mark 10:44; NLT).
Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form, he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross (Philippians 2:6-8; NLT).
I am the Alpha and the Omega,
the First and the Last,
the Beginning and the End
(Revelation 22:13; NIV).
You are my leading light:
From ages past.
You are my guiding star:
My dawn, my sun,
My First, my Last.
You are my cornerstone:
My sanctuary, my home,
You are my heart’s desire:
My way, my truth, my life,
1. You will be a light to guide the nations (Isaiah 42:6; NLT).
I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life (John 8:12; NLT).
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made (John 1:1-3; NIV).
I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb (Jeremiah 1:5; NLT).
You, O God, are my king from ages past (Psalm 74:12; NLT).
2. The star they had seen in the east guided them to Bethlehem (Matthew 2:9; NLT).
Your salvation will come like the dawn (Isaiah 58:8; NLT).
No longer will you need the sun to shine by day, nor the moon to give its light by night, for the Lord your God will be your everlasting light (Isaiah 60:19; NLT).
I am the First and the Last; there is no other God (Isaiah 44:6; NLT).
3. The stone that the builders rejected has now become the cornerstone (Psalm 118:22; NLT).
He will conceal me there when troubles come; he will hide me in his sanctuary (Psalm 27:5; NLT).
Jesus replied, “All who love me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and we will come and make our home with each of them” (John 14:23; NLT).
You are my friends (John 15:15; NLT).
So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God (Romans 5:11; NLT).
4. Our heart’s desire is to glorify your name (Isaiah 26:8; NLT).
Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6; NLT).
The dust will returns to the earth, and the spirit will return to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NLT).

(Ephesians 2:12; NLT).
1. I’m nothing, Lord,
Without your way.
2. I’m nothing, Lord,
Without your light.
3. I’m nothing, Lord,
Without your truth.
4. I’m nothing, Lord,
Without your life.
5. I’m nothing, Lord,
Without your flesh.
6. I’m nothing, Lord,
Without your blood.
7. I’m nothing, Lord,
Without your peace.
8. I’m nothing, Lord,
Without your love.
1,3,4. I am nothing but dust and ashes (Genesis 18:27; NIV).
I am the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6; NIV).
2. They grope in the darkness without a light (2 Samuel 23:4; NLT).
God is light (1 John 1:5; NIV).
3. If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us (1 John 1:8; NIV).
The Spirit is truth (1 John 5:6; NKJV).
5,6. Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man, and drink his blood, you cannot have eternal life within you (John 6:53; NLT).
7. Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14; NKJV).
The Lord is peace (Judges 6:24; NLT).
8. If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing (1 Corinthians 13:2; NLT).
