Sharing Supper


Tune: O Waly Waly

('An upper room did our Lord prepare')

John 13 v.1-17 parts


Sharing in meal before Passover

It was at the final Supper

Before Christ suffered, died, rose again

He still showed love unto all men* (*mankind)


After supper, washed disciples feet

Dusty and grimy, He left seat

Girded self with towel, and them served

Never from father's will He swerved


He would still love them, us, to the end

God the Father His Son did send

To save us, here shown in bread and wine

Christ's life full human, full divine


Give grace to us that we here humbly

May too serve each other freely

Many ways we wash each other's feet

And grow more Christ-like, whole, complete

    I fear the importance of sharing, is sadly in decline .. but if you confront some greedy so and so they will invariably be in denial .. 🐧

      Thanks N.

      Truly I love the sentiment here. Jokingly I would say we could buy them shoes..........

        Doh! yes, it would help. For them in sandals, I expect, it was foot-washing.

        This is such a precise poem! I love Easter, and it is always a reminder that there was a holy resurrection, and a continuous Spirit here on Earth, offering salvation. This Saturday I'm going to a play about Jesus' life, it's called "The Thorn," can't wait!

          Sharing is so vital to living a worthwhile life and many are the ways we can do it my friend.

            Will Fido share his bone with his friends?!
