I wanted to live a life of service
Sharing Christ’s love was my ultimate purpose
A missionary, a minister, I thought I should be
To spread Christ’s love, I thought would be most benefiting
What greater love than this?

A few years later, love still my primary goal
I was asked to fill the shoes of a different role
To serve my country, my fellow men
An others’ rights I would defend
What greater love than this?

I took every opportunity
To fulfill my duty
Sharing Christ’s strength and love
Where there was none
What greater love than this?

And with all the courage and strength I could find
I laid my life on the line
All for a friend
Love’s greatest end
No greater love than this
