A Liturgy for Washing of the Hands II

Meet me, O Word become flesh, in the washing of this flesh,

As I return to this basin, return my attention to You.

 

As this flowing water foams soap into suds,

Let Your Spirit form my soul into the shape of Your Son.

 

Remind me, O Christ, even in the repetition of this task

that You cleanse not only our hands but also our hearts.

 

Send me, O Holy Spirit, washed and made new, made ready, 

Your will to do. 

Amen
