Jesus says, “What do you want me to do for you?”

(Mark 10:36,51)
What do you want me to do for you?
What a wonderful question! – what would you do?
What would you ask for? What would you say?
What are the things for which you pray?

The man who was blind knew his desperate need
– he knew he’d no merit, had faith to plead
to One who he realised could give him his sight:
he didn’t give up, – asked for mercy and light.

But Zebedee’s sons asked with eagerness wrong
– they realised Christ’s greatness, his kingdom would come,
but now they must serve, their Father’d prepare
their place in his kingdom – they knew they’d be there!
