1 Son of Man, Christ Jesus,
What have you to say
To us who would follow
In your steps today?

2 'Foxes make a shelter,
Birds construct a nest
Yet there is no pillow
For my head to rest.

3 Happy are God's poor ones!
Happy are the weak!
With them I am standing;
For them I must speak

4 Pour a cup of water
For each one, and see
In that simple action
You are helping me.'

5 Son of Man, Christ Jesus:
If we do these things
We shall share your glory,
We shall reign as kings.
