When I Survey the Wondrous Cross

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,
Save in the death of Christ my God;
All the vain things that charm me most,
I sacrifice them to His blood.

See from His head, His hands, His feet,
Sorrow and love flow mingled down!
Did e’er such love and sorrow meet,
Or thorns compose so rich a crown?

Beneath the Cross of Jesus

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,
Save in the death of Christ my God;
All the vain things that charm me most,
I sacrifice them to His blood.

Throughout These Lenten Days and Nights

Throughout these Lenten days and nights
we turn to walk the inward way,
where, meeting Christ, our guided light,
we live in hope til Easter day.

The pilgrim Christ, the Lamb of God,
who found in weakness greater power,
embraces us, though lost and flawed,
and leads us to His rising hour.

And though the road is hard and steep,
the Spirit ever calls us on
through Calvary’s dying, dark and deep,
until we see the coming dawn.

Jesu, Jesu, Fill Us With Your Love

Jesu, Jesu, fill us with Your love;
show us how to serve
the neighbours we have from You.
Kneels at the feet of His friends,
silently washes their feet,
master who acts as a slave to them.

Jesu, Jesu,fill us with Your love;
show us how to serve
the neighbours we have from You.
Neighbours are rich and poor,
varied in colour and race;
neighbours are near and far away.

Jesu, Jesu,fill us with Your love;
show us how to serve
the neighbours we have from You.
These are the ones we should serve;
these are the ones we should love;
all these are neighbours to us and You.

Jesu, Jesu, fill us with Your love;
show us how to serve
the neighbours we have from You.
Kneel at the feet of our friends,
silently washing their feet;
this is the way we should live with You.

Jesu, Jesu, fill us with Your love;
show us how to serve
the neighbours we have from You.

My Song is Love Unknown

My song is love unknown,
my Saviour’s love to me,
love to the loveless shown,
that they might lovely be.
Oh who am I that for my sake
my Lord should take frail flesh and die?

He came from his blest throne
salvation to bestow,
but we made strange, and none
the longed-for Christ would know.
But oh, my Friend, my Friend indeed,
who at my need His life did spend.

Here might I stay and sing,
no story so divine;
never was love, dear King,
never was grief like thine.
This is my friend in whose sweet praise
I all my days could gladly spend.

All Glory, Laud, and Honour

All glory, laud, and honour
to Thee, Redeemer, King,
to whom the lips of children
made sweet hosannas ring!

Thou art the King of Israel,
Thou David’s royal son,
who in the Lord’s name comest,
the King and blessed one.

All glory, laud, and honour
to Thee, Redeemer, King,
to whom the lips of children
made sweet hosannas ring!

The people of the Hebrews
with palms before Thee went,
our praise and prayer and anthems
before Thee we present.

All glory, laud, and honour
to Thee, Redeemer, King,
to whom the lips of children
made sweet hosannas ring!

To Thee before Thy passion
they sang their hymns of praise;
to Thee, now high exalted,
our melody we raise.

CANTATA – One Sacrifice – Joel Raney, John Parker, Audra Parker

(C) 2006 Hope Publishing Company

THE APOSTLES’ CREED

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.

And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; he descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic Church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. AMEN.

Ride On, Ride On in Majesty

Ride on, ride on in majesty;
Hark, all the tribes “Hosanna!” cry.
O Saviour meek, pursue Thy road
with palms and scattered garments strewed.

Ride on, ride on in majesty;
the angel hosts beyond the sky
look down with sad and wondering eyes
to see the approaching Sacrifice.

Ride on, ride on in majesty;
in lowly pomp, ride on to die.
O Christ, Thy triumphs now begin
o’er captive death and conquered sin.

Jesus Christ is Risen Today!

Jesus Christ is risen today, hallelujah!
Our triumphant holy day, hallelujah!
Who did once upon the Cross, hallelujah!
Suffer to redeem our loss, hallelujah!

Hymns of praise then let us sing, hallelujah!
Unto Christ, our heavenly King, hallelujah!
Who endured the Cross and grave, hallelujah!
Sinners to redeem and save, hallelujah!

But the pains which He endured, hallelujah!
Our salvation have procured, hallelujah!
Now above the sky, He’s King, hallelujah!
Where the angels ever sing, hallelujah!

Sing we to our God above, hallelujah!
Praise eternal as His love, hallelujah!
Praise Him, all ye heavenly host, hallelujah!
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, hallelujah!

Were You There?

Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Oh —
Sometimes it causes me
to tremble, tremble, tremble
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?

Were you there when they nailed Him to the tree?
Were you there when they nailed Him to the tree?
Oh —
Sometimes it causes me
to tremble, tremble, tremble
Were you there when they nailed Him to the tree?

Were you there when they pierced Him in the side?
Were you there when they pierced Him in the side?
Oh —
Sometimes it causes me
to tremble, tremble, tremble
Were you there when they pierced Him in the side?

Were you there when the sun refused to shine?
Were you there when the sun refused to shine?
Oh —
Sometimes it causes me
to tremble, tremble, tremble
Were you there when the sun refused to shine?

Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb?
Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb?
Oh —
Sometimes it causes me
to tremble, tremble, tremble
Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb?

An Upper Room Did Our Lord Prepare
An upper room did our Lord prepare
For those He loved until the end,
And His disciples still gather there
To celebrate their risen Friend.

A lasting gift Jesus gave His own —
To share His bread, His loving cup;
Whatever burdens may bow us down,
He, by His Cross, shall lift us up.

And after supper, He washed their feet,
For service, too, is sacrament;
In Him our joy shall be made complete —
Sent out to serve, as He was sent.

 

Here is Bread; Here is Wine

Here is Bread; Here is Wine
Here is bread; here is wine:
Christ is with us; He is with us.
Break the bread; taste the wine:
Christ is with us here.

Here is grace; here is peace:
Christ is with us; He is with us.
Know His grace; find His peace:
Feast on Jesus here.

In this bread there is healing;
In this cup there’s life forever.
In this moment by the Spirit
Christ is with us here.

Here we are, joined in one:
Christ is with us; He is with us.
We’ll proclaim till He comes
Jesus crucified.

In this bread there is healing;
In this cup there’s life forever.
In this moment by the Spirit
Christ is with us here.
