"Jesus knew that his hour had come to leave the world and return to his Father

He had loved his disciples during his ministry on earth,

and now he loved them to the very end."



He stripped himself

He picked up a towel

He filled the basin with living waters

Jesus knew his hour had come

For a dying world

He stooped down

No words can fully describe

How Jesus Christ set aside

His kingly robe

His kingly crown

For a dying world

He stooped down

Jesus Christ emptied himself

Sin demanded a sacrifice

For this reason

He had come

For a dying world

He stooped down

Love demanded a heavy price

Praise the Lord

He gave his own life

No greater love I have ever found

For my dying world

He stooped down

(Poem by June Smith, 2023)


"So he got up from the table, took off his robe, wrapped a towel around his waist,

and poured water into a basin. Then he began to wash his disciples' feet

Drying them with a towel he had around him"

"And since I your Lord and Teacher have washed your feet,

You ought to wash each other's feet."

(John 13: 4 & 14 NLT)
