Love Consecrates the Humblest Act

Representative Text

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!
