This is another fine addition to the repertoire for the foot washing on Holy Thursday. The SATB scoring for the refrain is homophonic, the piano providing subtle rhythmic interest for additional movement. The first two verses are scored for cantor or unison choir; the third and fourth verses maintain the homophonic texture of the refrain.

Easy to learn refrain for congregation, with four verses. SATB choir, cantor, assembly and keyboard.
