maundy thursday

today is maundy thursday
today you wash our feet
today you offer us your body as food
and your blood as drink
today you give a new command
to love each other as we have been loved by you
today you speak to us about your departing
about your dying and about your being raised to new life
today you tell us of the place you have prepared for us
and the spirit that has been given to lead us there
today you invite us to abide in your love
as a branch abides in a vine
today you pray for us
that as the father is in you
so you will be in us
and we in you.
tonight you ask us to watch with you and pray
because your time has come
o jesus, you have been such a friend and companion to us
may we be the same to you
as you journey to the cross
