1 As in that upper room you left your seat
and took a towel and chose a servant's part,
so for today, Lord, wash again my feet,
who in your mercy died to cleanse my heart.
2 I bow before you, all my sin confessed,
to hear again the words of love you said;
and at your table, as your honored guest,
I take and eat the true and living bread.
3 So in remembrance of your life laid down
I come to praise you for your grace divine;
Saved by your cross, and subject to your crown,
strengthened for service by this bread and wine.
