Keep my eyes to serve and hands to learn
Keep my eyes to serve and hands to learn

from Mumford & Sons – Below My Feet Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This is a reversal of what you may expect. And perhaps it’s a reversal of the traditional Christian preaching of learning by watching and listening to your parents and preachers, and then serving God and others through your actions which conform to these teachings. He’s going to learn by doing, and serve by watching and listening, because what better way to serve people than to make them feel watched and listened to.
