We sang the "Servant Song" today from the Gather Hymnal, and I was surprised to see that it was written by Ziggy Stardust and Bobby Fisher (without the "c" in the chess champion's name).

I did a Google search, but couldn't find anything. Surely this is not a song written by David Bowie...
is it?
There are two songs in the Gather Hymnal - one is entitled "Servant Song" and the other is "The Servant Song". There is (or was) a songwriter from Nashville named Bobby Fisher. But, you are correct; Gather does list Ziggy Stardust and Bobby Fisher as the writers of the piece. The other song in Gather, that I am more familiar with is "The Servant Song" written by Richard Gillard .
