Act Selfless
Parody of "Black Velvet" by Alannah Myles
(Matthew 7:12, 20:28, 22:39; Mark 9:33-35, 10:45, 12:31; Luke 6:27-36, 12:35-37, 22:24-27; John 13:1-17; Philippians 2:3-8; Leviticus 19:18)

"Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. 
Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 
not looking to your own interests 
but each of you to the interests of the others."

As He's sitting in the midst of the disciples
Jesus rises with a little ol' surprise
Now He's standin' with a basin full of water
He doesn't set aside till the last one's feet are dry
It was a strange new attitude in a king
‘Cause they saw their Lord, kneeling upon the floor

Act selfless - and then give a broad smile
Act selfless - and then go another mile
A new religion where the King is on His knees
Act selfless - if you please

Unpretentious and He woos us with His meek ways
Christ likes it when the proud decide to bow
Love your neighbor – it's a hard, rough thing to do but
Love your enemies – it's what Christ wants in us now
When we refuse it's just a sin, so see it through
Always striving for pleasing your humble Lord

Act selfless - and ya did the Lord proud
Act selfless - ‘cause we're all brothers now
A new religion that'll bring ya inner peace
Act selfless - if you please

Yeah, the Word He left His throne and He came just for you
In the flesh He was God
His actions so proved
What should you do?

Act selfless -- when that bitter world's vile
Act selfless when your soul suffers trials
A new religion where the strength goes to the weak
Act selfless – it's unique

Act selfless – and the risen Lord smiles
Act selfless – and then you're the Father's child
A new religion – in Philippians 2 verse 3
Act selfless – if you believe
If you believe

Philippians 2:3
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value
others above yourselves...
