Author: Silas B. McManus, 1845-1917 Hymnal: Evangelical Lutheran Worship #360 (2006) Meter: 18.104.22.168 Hymnal Title: Evangelical Lutheran Worship Lyrics: 1 Love consecrates the humblest act
and haloes mercy’s deeds;
it sheds a benediction sweet
and hallows human needs.
2 When in the shadow of the cross
Christ knelt and washed the feet
of his disciples he gave us
a sign of love complete.
3 Love serves and willing stoops to serve;
what Christ in love so true
has freely done for one and all,
let us now gladly do! Topics: Holy Week, Three Days; Holy Week, Three Days; Service Languages: English Tune Title: TWENTY-FOURTH
