1. Just before we take the bread and wine, there are lessons to be learned;
And our feet, the body's lowest parts, help us humbly to discern.
When we look to all our brethren and esteem them, free from pride,
When we let His mind be in us, He will be our strength and guide.
"If you call me Lord and Master, understand just what I do;
You should also wash each other's feet, as I have done for you.
I have given this example and will put you to the test;
If you know these things and do them, you surely will be blessed."
2. When we see the dirt upon our feet and our sin, right from the start,
Then we realize we need His blood for a washing of our hearts.
Though our sins are just like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;
When we follow His example, more like Him we're sure to grow.
3. As our feet support us ev'ry day to wherever we may go,
Humbly serve the many members of His body here below,
Help them carry all their burdens and their purpose to fulfill,
For our Savior came to serve us and to do our Father's will.
