     1 Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end. 2 And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him; 3 Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God; 4 He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. 5 After that he poureth water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded. 6 Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet? 7 Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter. 8 Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. 9 Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head. 10 Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all. 11 For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean. 12 So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you? 13 Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am. 14 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet. 15 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.(KJV)

1. Jesus Christ, our Lord most holy, 
Lamb of God so pure and lowly, 
Blameless, blameless, on the cross art offered, 
Sinless, sinless, for our sins hast suffered. 

2. Weep now, all ye wretched creatures, 
As ye view His gracious features. 
Jesus, Jesus, on the cross is dying, 
Nature, nature, in dark gloom is sighing. 

3. Christ, His last word having spoken, 
Bows His head as life is broken. 
Mournful, mournful, stands His mother weeping, 
Loved ones, loved ones, silent watch are keeping. 

4. The great veil was torn asunder, 
Earth did quake mid roars of thunder, 
Boulders, boulders, into bits were breaking; 
Sainted, sainted, dead from death were waking. 

5. As His side with spear was riven, 
Blood and water forth were given. 
Jesus, Jesus, sinners’ only Savior, 
Mercy, mercy, grant to us forever.
