1 An Upper Room did our Lord prepare
  For those he loved until the end:
  And his disciples still gather there,
  To celebrate their Risen Friend.

2 A lasting gift Jesus gave his own:
  To share his bread, his loving cup.
  Whatever burdens may bow us down,
  He by his Cross shall lift us up.

3 And after Supper he washed their feet,
  For service, too, is sacrament.
  In him our joy shall be made complete--
  Sent out to serve, as he was sent.

4 No end there is! We depart in peace.
  He loves beyond our uttermost:
  In every room in our Father's house
  He will be there, as Lord and Host.
