The church of God believes it right

Full Text

1 The Church of God believes it right,
To think and do as Jesus bade,
When on that dark and doleful night
He gave His law, and plainly said:β€”

2 Mark the example which I give:
Keep it, and show your mutual love
My precepts do, and you shall live,
In bliss below, and heaven above.

3 Then, do we love our brethren now?
And are we bound in union sweet?
If so, like Jesus, let us bow,
And let us wash each other's feet.

4 Let no one be ashamed of this,β€”
Or, Peter-like, turn, and say, no;
But as we aim for heav'nly bliss,
We'll in our Master's footsteps go.

5 Now, Lord, we'll wash Thy people's feet,
And here enjoy their fond embrace;
Each with a kiss of friendship greet;
And hope in love to see thy face.

6 And then we'll feast on heav'nly love,
And find our joys to be complete:
Yes, then we'll sing thy praise above,
And bow, with angels, at thy feet,
