Lyrics

Where the waters of the Jordan
wend their way through desert land,
Jesus came in humble freedom
to be baptized at John’s hand.
Then there came a voice from heaven,
and the Spirit like a dove,
“This is my beloved Servant
come to reign in suffering love!”

In the upper room at evening
when the twelve had come to meet,
Jesus took the towel and basin,
knelt to wash their dusty feet.
Since he knew his time was coming,
Jesus bid them live as one,
“If you want to be my people,
you must do as I have done.”

Near the lake as day was dawning
someone called them, “Eat with me”;
so they brought their fish and joined him,
breaking bread beside the sea;
then they knew their risen Savior,
charging them with ministry,
“If you want to be my people,
feed my sheep and follow me.”

Jesus, we would be your people,
called and baptized, born anew,
drinking of one living Spirit,
given many tasks to do.
We are frail, yet you sustain us
as we seek your word and way,
bearing springs of living waters,
hid in vessels made of clay.
