Jesu, Jesu




Jesu, Jesu

Jesu, Jesu, fill us with your love,
show us how to serve the neighbors
we have from you.

Kneels at the feet of his friends,
silently washes their feet,
Master who acts as a slave to them.

Jesu, Jesu, fill us with your love,
show us how to serve the neighbors
we have from you.

Neighbors are rich folk and poor,
neighbors are black, brown, and white,
neighbors are nearby and far away.

Jesu, Jesu, fill us with your love,
show us how to serve the neighbors
we have from you.

These are the ones we should serve,
these are the ones we should love;
all these are neighbors to us and you.

Jesu, Jesu, fill us with your love,
show us how to serve the neighbors
we have from you.

Loving puts us on our knees,
serving as though we are slaves:
this is the way we should live with you.

Jesu, Jesu, fill us with your love,
show us how to serve the neighbors
we have from you.
