Refrain

Jesu, Jesu,
Fill us with Your love, show us how to serve
The neighbors we have from You.

Kneels at the feet of his friends,
Silently washes their feet,
Master who acts as a slave to them.

Refrain

Neighbors are rich and poor,
Neighbors are black and white,
Neighbors are near and far away.

Refrain

These are the ones we should serve,
These are the ones we should love;
All these are neighbors to us and You.

Refrain

Loving puts us on our knees,
Serving as though we are slaves,
This is the way we should live with You.

Refrain

Kneel at the feet of our friends,
Silently washing their feet,
This is the way we should live with You.
