1 As Christ the Lord took up a towel
and washed disciples' feet
so may the Master's servants now
his work, his joy, complete.

2 As Christ the Lord took up the cross
and climbed Golgotha's hill,
so may Christ's servants be prepared
to tread that steep road still.

3 As Christ the Lord rose up from death
to spread the Spirit's power
may those on whom hands shall be laid
prove equal to the hour.

4 Lord Christ, the Father's trusted Son,
whose love no limit knows,
bless each one here, that through us all
your kingdom lives and grows.
