582 (C.M.) William Cowper

Did Christ the great example lead

For all His humble train,

In washing the disciples' feet,

And wiping them again?

And did my Lord and Master say,

"If I have washed your feet,

Ye also ought to watch and pray,

And wash each other's feet?"

O blessed Jesus, at thy board

I have thy children met;

The bread I've broke, the wine I've poured

We've washed each other's feet

In imitation of my Lord,

Who blood for me did sweat,

I yield unto His sacred word

And wash the pilgrim's feet.

Yes, blessed Jesus, I like thee,

Would Christians often meet;

The least of all the flock would be,

And wash His children's feet.
