The last meal which He ate with them, the night before He died, was one which they would oft recall when He was crucified.
He talked with them and washed their feet; He gave them bread and wine, that in remembrance they might do the act which was divine.
“No servant greater than his Lord,” “No love so great as this”- The words of life preceding death Betrayed by friendship’s kiss.
So silver from Iscariot’s hand Has tinkled down the years; Man’s greed has hanged his guilty self And drowned his deed in tears.
