The Footwashing

281. The Footwashing

Remember the time when Jesus insisted on washing the feet of the disciples? A woman who was speaking at a conference asked me to write a song to go with this story of the footwashing. I believe it’s not about everyone being willing to wash the other person’s feet. I think it is about knowing the truth in a new way, doing for others so they know of your great love for them, and seeing the need and doing what needs to be done.

The Footwashing

Jesus stood

and took the towel

and washed the feet

of those who followed him

and heard the word,

Time was short,

and Jesus knew

that they must see

and feel the truth

in some new way.

“I will bend and wash the dust,

I will wash your feet.”

Peter cried,

“My Lord, you must not

wash my feet,

and Jesus said,

“You do not understand,

Time is short,

and you must do for others

what I’ve done for you

in some new way.

You can bend and wash the dust,

Go and wash their feet.”

Master – slave –

the least of these –

who shall be first –

Christ answered clearly

when he said to us,

“Time is short

and it is good

when you can see the need

and act in some new way.

Go and bend and wash the dust,

Go and wash their feet.”
