Song of Preparation and Reflection | O Sacred Head Now Wounded

Original Latin lyrics: Bernard of Clairvaux (1091-1153) or Arnulf of Leuven (d. 1250) | German lyrics: Paul Gerhardt (1607-1676) | English Lyrics: James Waddel Alexander (1829) | Melody: Hans Leo Hassler (1601) | Harmonization: J.S. Bach (1729)

Lyrics for Reflection:
O sacred Head, now wounded,
with grief and shame weighed down,
now scornfully surrounded
with thorns, thine only crown!
O sacred Head, what glory,
what bliss till now was thine!
Yet, though despised and gory,
I joy to call thee mine.

What thou, my Lord, hast suffered
was all for sinners’ gain.
Mine, mine was the transgression,
but thine the deadly pain.
Lo, here I fall, my Savior!
’Tis I deserve thy place.
Look on me with thy favor,
and grant to me thy grace.

What language shall I borrow
to thank thee, dearest Friend,
for this, thy dying sorrow,
thy pity without end?
Oh, make me thine forever,
and should I fainting be,
Lord, let me never, never
outlive my love to thee.

Call to Worship | Psalm 92:1-4 (NIV)

It is good to praise the LORD
    and make music to your name, O Most High,
proclaiming your love in the morning
    and your faithfulness at night,

to the music of the ten-stringed lyre
    and the melody of the harp.
For you make me glad by your deeds, LORD;
    I sing for joy at what your hands have done.

Goodness of God

I love you Lord
Oh your mercy never fails me
All my days I've been held in your hands
From the moment that I wake up
Until I lay my head
I will sing of the goodness of God

    All my life you have been faithful
    All my life you have been so so good
    With every breath that I am able
    I will sing of the goodness of God

I love your voice
You have led me through the fire
In darkest night
You are close like no other
I've known you as a father
I've known you as a friend
I have lived in the goodness of God

Your goodness is running after
It’s running after me
Your goodness is running after
It’s running after me
With my life laid down
I’m surrendered now
I give You everything
Your goodness is running after
It's running after me

Shout to the Lord

©1993 Darlene Zschech

My Jesus my Savior
Lord there is none like You
All of my days I want to praise
The wonders of your mighty love
My comfort my shelter
Tower of refuge and strength
Let every breath all that I am
Never cease to worship You

    Shout to the Lord
    All the earth let us sing
    Power and majesty
    Praise to the King
    Mountains bow down
    And the seas will roar
    At the sound of your name
    I sing for joy at the work of your hands
    Forever I'll love you forever I'll stand
    Nothing compares to the promise
    I have in You

Prayers of the People

Rejoice the Lord is King

Lyrics: Charles Wesley 1746 (altered) | Music: John Darwall 1770

Rejoice, the Lord is King:
Your Lord and King adore;
Rejoice , give thanks, and sing,
and triumph evermore.
Lift up your heart;
Lift up your voice! Rejoice, again I say, rejoice.

Our Savior, Jesus reigns,
the God of truth and love;
When he had purged our stains,
he took his seat above.
Lift up your heart;
Lift up your voice! Rejoice, again I say, rejoice.

His kingdom cannot fail;
he rules o'er earth and heav’n;
the keys of death and hell
are to our Jesus giv’n.
Lift up your heart;
Lift up your voice! Rejoice, again I say, rejoice.

Rejoice in glorious hope!
For Christ, the Judge shall come
and gather all the saints to
their eternal home.
Lift up your heart;
Lift up your voice! Rejoice, again I say, rejoice.
Lift up your heart;
Lift up your voice! Rejoice, again I say, rejoice.

Scripture | Psalm 92:12-15 (NIV)

12 The righteous will flourish like a palm tree,
    they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon;
13 planted in the house of the LORD,
    they will flourish in the courts of our God.
14 They will still bear fruit in old age,
    they will stay fresh and green,
15 proclaiming, “The LORD is upright;
    he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him."

Song of Response and Reflection

Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring from Cantata No.147 | Music by J.S. Bach | English Lyrics by Robert Bridges

Jesu, joy of man's desiring,
Holy wisdom, love most bright;
Drawn by Thee, our souls aspiring
Soar to uncreated light.

Word of God, our flesh that fashioned,
With the fire of life impassioned,
Striving still to truth unknown,
Soaring, dying round Thy throne.

Through the way where hope is guiding,
Hark, what peaceful music rings;
Where the flock, in Thee confiding,
Drink of joy from deathless springs.

Theirs is beauty's fairest pleasure;
Theirs is wisdom's holiest treasure.
Thou dost ever lead Thine own
In the love of joys unknown.

Benediction: The Doxology

Lyrics: Thomas Ken | Music: (“Old Hundredth”): Louis Bourgeois

Praise God from whom all blessings flow
Praise him all creatures here below
Praise him above, ye heavenly hosts
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
