Christ Serving Me

Sitting at the table
waiting for the Passover
sitting in the city of David
preparing for the feast

The wonder of Sunday
the palms and the hosannas
the work of this week
rumors all around

With my friend in the room
borrowed from a stranger
gathered with the master
remembering the exodus

But here is the master
a towel at his waist
washing the feet of my brothers
coming next to me

Looking down
at my Lord,
as he pours the waters
lovingly caressing
washing me clean

Christ serving me
when he is my master
his humble service to me
powerful, hard to comprehend

Stunned into silence,
listening to his words offered
explaining what he did
and how we must live

Serving one another
humbly, a servant
no one better
all deserving of grace
