At the washing of the feet, "Ubi Caritas" may be sung or recited. This is in keeping with the "Mandatum" (commandment) of Christ to love one another. There is also an English hymn, "Where Charity and Love Prevail" which is close to the words of this hymn. An English translation of "Ubi Caritas" follows:

DIRECTIONS

Where charity and love are found, there is God. The love of Christ has gathered us together into one. Let us rejoice and be glad in him. Let us fear and love the living God, and love each other from the depths of our heart.

Where charity and love are found, there is God. Therefore when we are together, let us take heed not be divided in mind. Let there be an end to bitterness and quarrels, an end to strife, and in our midst be Christ our God.

Where charity and love are found, there is God. And, in company with the blessed, may we see your face in glory, Christ our God, pure and unbounded joy for ever and for ever.
