1 Our Saviour, meek and lowly, came,
And taught his flock to be the same;
He an example set, that they
Might willingly his word obey.
2 For on that night he was betrayed,
He for us all a pattern laid:
Before his supper he did eat,
He rose and washed his brethren's feet.
3 'Twas Christ, the Lord of earth and sky!
He laid his royal garments by,
And washed their feet, to show that we
Should always kind and humble be.
4 But Peter said: "It shall not be!
Thou shalt not stoop to washing me!"
O, that no Christian here may say,
"I'm too unworthy to obey!"
5 "You call me Lord, and Master too:
Then do as I have done to you;
All my commands and counsel heed,
And show your love by word and deed.
6 "Ye shall be happy if ye know
And do these things by faith, below;
For I'll protect you till I come,
And then I'll take you to your home."Source: The Seventh-Day Adventist Hymn and Tune Book: for use in divine worship #1096
