Won’t You Let Me Be Your Servant

Won't You Let Me Be Your Servant 2The organ starts quietly and builds to full organ with reeds, so best not to try to compensate for the soft volume at the beginning or it may be too loud for you at the end. Just leave your volume where you normally have it.

I’m not able to provide either the music or text for this one because of copyright. If you happen to have a New Century Hymnal it’s #539. Even if you don’t have the words, it’s impossible not to sing or hum along with this memorable tune. Even with 6 verses, it always feel like I could easily sing another half-dozen more without feelings like it was too many.

Information about the author of these remarkable words is found at https://hymnary.org/text/will_you_let_me_be_your_servant.

Just a reminder that the complete collection of these hymn recordings is available for free listening (streaming) at https://soundcloud.com/hilton-kean-jones/sets/hymns-at-lakewood. When each new recording is posted on the church website, it is also added to this album.
