I could travel over oceans
Cross the deserts, climb the mountains
Just to share Your story
Bring You glory and win souls for You

And I could sing like an angel
Songs so humble and so thankful
Full of drama and emotion
So the world would know Your truth

I could give away my money
And my clothes and my food
To restore those people who are poor
And lost and down and out

Oh, I could succeed at all these things
Find favor with peasants and kings
But if I do not love, I am nothing

I could live a flawless life
Never cheat or steal or lie
And always speak so kindly
Smile so warmly and go about doing good

I could dedicate myself to do
What everyone else wants me to
Listen to them, compliment them
Say the things I should

I could show up every Sunday
Lead the choir and Bible Study
And they all might come to know me
As a leader and a friend

Oh, I could achieve success on earth
But success cannot define my worth
And all these actions, all these words
They will not matter in the end

'Cause songs will fade to silence
Stories, they will cease
The dust will settle
Covering all my selfless deeds

So as I strive to serve You
Won't You make it clear to me?
That if I do not love, I am nothing

And if I cannot live my life
Loving my brother
Then how can I love the One
Who lived His life for me?

Oh, sent to earth from Heaven
Humble Servant, Holy King
Come to share a story, get no glory
And save my searching soul

You knew that I'd deny You, crucify You
But nothing could stop You
From living for me, dying for me
So that I would know

That songs will fade to silence
Stories they will cease
The dust will settle
Covering all my selfless deeds

But Your life here has made it
Clear enough for me to see
That if I do not love, I am nothing
