Dirty Feet

With no servant at the door,
     Jesus laid His clothes aside,
          wrapped a towel around His waist,
And pouring water out, from
     a full basin to an empty bowl,
          His very hands stretched out,
               washed more than dirty feet.

If I do not wash you, He said
     you will have no part with Me.
Let this be a sign to all, it is not
     just your feet that I make clean,
But your heart, head and soul,
     for you, my dears, are dirty feet.

John 13:1-20
