Christ in the night he was betrayed For us a plain example laid

Full Text

1 Christ in the night He was betrayed
For us a plain example laid;
He to a private room retired
With those He afterwards inspired.

2 The paschal feast was there prepared,
And Lord and servants mutual shared;
Before He suffered 'twas His will
This great desire He should fulfill.

3 He rose and laid His garments by,
When towel and water were bro't nigh;
To prove His love divinely sweet,
He stooped to wash His servants' feet.

4 So after He had washed their feet,
Resumed His garment, took His seat,
He asked them if they now had tho't
What lesson plain He here had taught.

5 "Example give I unto you,
As I have done so ye should do,
And if ye then My servants be,
Obey My Word and follow Me."
