Can anyone think of good songs on the subject of personal humility?  All I can think of is "Humble thyself in the sight of the Lord", which only lasts a few bars, it's just an old chorus with no verses.

What about “Who Am I?” by Casting Crowns?

And how about Micah 5:8 (although it’s also very short and has no verses)? But you could sandwich it in between “Sanctuary”, which is another song that can loosely be interpreted to be about humility. And there is Tomlin’s song “We Fall Down”.

My favorite is called

"We Come To Humble Ourselves"
By Brian Doerksen

Very easy to sing and play. I do it in G and its good for my medium tenor range voice. It is congregational and community focused by using the plural pronouns in the lyrics.

Guess I wasn't specific enough.  I'm getting responses along the lines of humility in worship, or Jesus' humility in coming to the earth, or "I'm a snivelling worm".  I need a song relating to being humble in everyday life, showing Christian humility to other people in practical ways.  Hudson's "Humble thyself in the sight of the Lord" is on point, but it's hardly a song at all, it's little more than half a chorus.  Hope my request is clearer now.
