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.

We are pilgrims on a journey,
and companions on the road;

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.

Filled With Excitement

Filled with excitement, all the happy throng
Spread cloaks and branches on the city streets.
There in the distance they begin to see,
Riding on a donkey, comes the Son of God.
From every corner a thousand voices sing
Praises to Him who comes in the name of God.
With one great shout of acclamation loud
Triumphant songs break forth:

Ho – sanna! Ho – sanna to the King!
Ho – sanna! Ho – sanna to the King!!

As in that entrance to Jerusalem,
We sing hosannas to the Christ, our King,
To the living Saviour who still calls today,
Asking us to follow Him with love and faith.
From every corner a thousand voices sing
Praises to Him who comes in the name of God.
With one great shout of acclamation loud
Triumphant songs break forth:

Ho – sanna! Ho – sanna to the King!
Ho – sanna! Ho – sanna to the King!!
