Luke 14: 8-11 "When someone invites you to a wedding feast, do not take your seat in the place of honour. A more distinguished person than you may have been invited, and the person who invited you both may come and say, 'Give up your place to this man'. And then, to your embarrassment, you would have to go and take the lowest place. No; when you are a guest, make your way to the lowest place and sit there, so that, when your host comes, he may say, 'My friend, move up higher'. In that way, everyone with you at the table will see you honoured. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and the man who humbles himself will be exalted".

Who wants to be first?
I do, I do!
Who wants to be at the front of the queue?
Who wants to sit in the very best place?
In the very best seat?
With the very best view?
I do, I do, I do!

Jesus said:
When you are invited to a feast
Don't take the seat that's marked "reserved"
Sit in the place that you like least
Your host might think that you deserve
A better seat, and you will find
That you are honored, wined and dined
In the very best seat
With the very best view
For you, for you, for you!

For the first will be last, and the last will be first
The worst will be best, and the best will be worst
The poor will be rich, and the rich will be poor
The head of the table, be near the door
The few will be great, and the great will be few
Those who are busy, have nothing to do
And those who are humble, will be held on high
Along with the calm and the quiet and shy
In the very best seats
With the very best view
Will you, will you, will you?

So who will be last?
I will, I will
Who wants to stand at the back of the queue?
Who wants to sit in the very worst place?
In the very worst seat?
With the very worst view?
I do, I do, I do!
