What sacred, holy hour was this

When Jesus met with chosen friends

And washed their feet, and prayed for those

Who’d love Him to the end?

How great the hour when Jesus gave

His bread as flesh and wine as blood

And gave to them His covenant

To make them sons of God.

 

What sacred, holy hour was this

When Jesus pled with all His soul?

Which words were meant for men to hear

And which for God alone/

What sacred holy hour was this?

What agony did He endure

When Jesus fell upon the ground

And bled from ev’ry pore?

 

What sacred, holy hour was this

When Jesus was unjustly tried

And scourged, and scorned, and crowned with thorns,

And mocked and crucified?

What soul was ransomed by this life?

What sin begat this sacrifice?

What gift demanded such a price;

That Christ, the Lord, should die?

 

What sacred, holy hour is this

As we, disciples of the Lord

Unite with Him and take again

These tokens of His love?

What sacred holy hour is this?

We covenant with Him anew

To witness and remember Him:

To do what He would do.
