As I Have Loved You by Raymond A. Foss

Christ’s command
not that we love one another
Not this alone,
though it would be
hard enough itself

Our command of our savior
on the night before his sacrifice
just as he is choosing
to become the lamb
offered on the altar of the cross

To love one another
as he first loved us
giving himself over
pouring out his life’s blood
paying the ultimate cost

Giving his own life
choosing to be the servant
a sacrifice of love
reconciling the whole world
so that we may see God
