that dirty towel – v2

that dirty towel
a symbol of Christ
the mantle we wear
the yoke in life

service our calling
even to those who hurt us
loving as Christ loves
as He loves us

that dirty towel
the rugged cross
service and sacrifice
the measure of a life

a life lesson
in the dust on that towel
the road we will travel
what we will face

love, mercy
compassion complete
dying on our cross
washing Judas’ feet.
