WASHING THE DISCIPLE'S FEET




Heaven’s lofty monarch now descends,
And leaves the realms of glorious light;
his hasty course he downward bends,
On wings of love he takes his flight.


The Prince of life no more appears
Encompassed with seraphic forms;
A servile garb he humbly wears,
And deigns to dwell with sinful worms.


Jesus the Lord supremely great,
O’erlooks the titles which he bore;
And stoops to wash his servant’s feet.
Whose viler hearts he cleansed before.


Lord, take the laver once again,
Thy purifying grace impart;
let not a single spot remain,
But wash my feet, my hands, my heart.
