Everybodyduck - Hindsight Lyrics

Though I resisted, You explained it had to be
As an example of how we should serve each other
But as You gently cleansed my feet what did You see?
It seems like yesterday we al sat there together
And each word You said stirred fire in my soul
Vowing I'd be Your most faithful man, come sun or stormy weather
But as You smiled at me then you must have known
As You gently poured the water
You heard me say I never knew You
As You wiped away the dust
You saw me hide beneath a lie
As You anointed me with oil
You must have known I wouldn't stay
You washed my feet, so I could walk away
Looking back I can't imagine how You did it
I could not have shown such love if I had known
That this man whose feet I washed would soon deny that he had known me
Still You humbly served Your servant, now that love cuts to the bone
Because I promised that I never would deny You
I said I'd rather die than curse Your name
And all along You loved me though You knew they were shallow empty words
And now each time my feet are washed, it just reminds me of my shame
As You gently poured the water
You heard me say I never knew You
As You wiped away the dust
You saw me hide beneath a lie
As You anointed me with oil
You must have known I wouldn't stay
You washed my feet, so I could walk away
How could You love me?
Why did You love me?
Now for the first time I can finally see things clearly
You gave love and asked for nothing in return
So now I pledge my life to loving others just like You loved me
Oh how the memories of that night
You washed my feet have set me free
As You gently poured the water
You heard me say I never knew You
As You wiped away the dust
You saw me hide beneath a lie
As You anointed me with oil
You must have known I wouldn't stay
You washed my feet, so I could walk away
