Hymn Lyrics for John 13:1-17

The Hour Had Come for Christ’s Return

To the tune: MENDON. Based on John 13:1-17. Words: William Weber, 2011.

v. 1
The hour had come for Christ’s return,
to join the Father up above.
The time had come to show His own,
the full extent of His great love.

v. 2
The Father gave all things to Christ,
all things were put into His hands.
So He arose and with His hands,
took up the tow’l to wash each man.

v. 3
The Lord had from His glory came,
His glory in our flesh was veiled.
But in that flesh He came to serve,
and take our sins and shame away.

v. 4
The Lord began to wash their feet,
but Peter said No, my Lord, not me.
If I don’t wash you, you won’t share,
You will not have a part in me.

v. 5
Then, Lord, not just my feet do wash,
but wash my hands and head as well.
You are all clean except for one,
the one betraying who has fell.

v. 6
Do you know what I’ve done for you?
Your Lord and Master washed your feet.
As an example do likewise,
you will be blessed in following me.

v. 7
O love of God beyond degree,
when Jesus came and died for me.
He shed His blood upon the tree,
and washed our sins and made us clean.

Here is the beginning of my post. And here is the rest of it.
