    Scripture Reading:                                                         Hebrews 5:7-10

     

    7 In the days of his flesh, Jesus offered up prayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to him who was able to save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverence.

    8 Although he was a son, he learned obedience through what he suffered.

    9 And being made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey him,

    10 being designated by God a high priest after the order of Melchizedek.

     

    Prayer of Invocation

     

    Come Praise and Glorify

    Come praise and glorify our God, the Father of our Lord

    In Christ He has in heav’nly realms His blessings on us poured

    For pure and blameless in His sight He destined us to be

    And now we’ve been adopted through His Son eternally

     

    Refrain:        To the praise of Your glory,

    To the praise of Your mercy and grace

    To the praise of Your glory

    You are the God who saves

     

    Come praise and glorify our God Who gives His grace in Christ

    In Him our sins are washed away redeemed through sacrifice

    In Him God has made known to us the myst’ry of His will

    That Christ should be the head of all His purpose to fulfill     (Refrain)

     

    Come praise and glorify our God for we’ve believed the Word

    And through our faith we have a seal the Spirit of the Lord

    The Spirit guarantees our hope until redemption’s done

    Until we join in endless praise to God, the Three in One        (Refrain)

    In the Presence of Your People

    Verse 1:

    In the presence of your people, I will praise your name,

    For alone you are holy, enthroned on the praises of Israel.

    Let us celebrate your goodness and your steadfast love.

    May your name be exalted here on earth and in heaven above.

     

    Verse 2:

    All who love you sing your praises and proclaim your power,

    For alone you are holy, enthroned on the praises of Israel.

    You have not ignored our suffering but have heard our cry.

    May your name be exalted here on earth and in heaven above.

     

    Verse 3:

    All who seek your rule will praise you and be satisfied,

    For alone you are holy, enthroned on the praises of Israel.

    All the peoples of the nations will bow down to you.

    Fullness of Grace

    Verse 1:     Fullness of Grace in man’s human frailty

    This is the wonder of Jesus

    Laying aside His power and glory

    Humbly He entered our world

    Chose the path of meanest worth

    Scandal of a virgin birth

    Born in a stable cold and rejected

    Here lies the hope of the world

    Verse 2:     Fullness of Grace the love of the Father

    Shown in the face of Jesus

    Stooping to bear the weight of humanity

    Walking the Calvary road

    Christ the holy Innocent

    Took our sin and punishment

    Fullness of God despised and rejected

    Crushed for the sins of the world

    Verse 3:     Fullness of hope in Christ we had longed for

    Promise of God in Jesus

    Through His obedience we are forgiven

    Opening the floodgates of heaven

    All our hopes and dreams we bring

    Gladly as an offering

    Fullness of life and joy unspeakable

    God’s gift in love to the world

    Scripture Reading

    Psalm 22

    Voice 1:

    1     My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?

    Why are you so far from helping me,

    from the words of my groaning?

    2     O my God, I cry by day, but you do not answer;

    and by night but find no rest.

    Voice 2:

    3     Yet you are holy,

    enthroned on the praises of Israel.

    4     In you our ancestors trusted;

    they trusted, and you delivered them.

    5     To you they cried, and were saved;

    in you they trusted, and were not put to shame.

    All Sing:

    What wondrous love is this, O my soul, O my soul?

    What wondrous love is this, O my soul?

    Voice 1:

    6     But I am a worm, and not human;

    scorned by others, and despised by the people.

    7     All who see me mock at me;

    they make mouths at me, they shake their heads;

    8     “Commit your cause to the Lord; let him deliver—

    let him rescue the one in whom he delights!”

    Voice 2:

    9     Yet it was you who took me from the womb;

    you kept me safe on my mother’s breast.

    10   On you I was cast from my birth,

    and since my mother bore me you have been my God.

    11   Do not be far from me,

    for trouble is near

    and there is no one to help.

    All Sing:

    When I was sinking down, sinking down, sinking down,

    When I was sinking down, sinking down…

     

  •  

    Voice 1:

    12   Many bulls encircle me,

    strong bulls of Bashan surround me;

    13   they open wide their mouths at me,

    like a ravening and roaring lion.

    14   I am poured out like water,

    and all my bones are out of joint;

    my heart is like wax;

    it is melted within my breast;

    Voice 2:

    15   my mouth is dried up like a potsherd,

    and my tongue sticks to my jaws;

    you lay me in the dust of death.

    16   For dogs are all around me;

    a company of evildoers encircles me.

    My hands and feet have shriveled;

    Voice 1:

    17   I can count all my bones.

    They stare and gloat over me;

    18   they divide my clothes among themselves,

    and for my clothing they cast lots.

    Voice 2:

    19   But you, O Lord, do not be far away!

    O my help, come quickly to my aid!

    20   Deliver my soul from the sword,

    my life from the power of the dog!

    21   Save me from the mouth of the lion!

    From the horns of the wild oxen, you have rescued me.

    All Sing:

    To God and to the Lamb, I will sing, I will sing.

    To God and to the Lamb, I will sing.

    Voice 1:

    22   I will tell of your name to my brothers and sisters;

    in the midst of the congregation I will praise you:

    23   You who fear the Lord, praise him!

    All you offspring of Jacob, glorify him;

    stand in awe of him, all you offspring of Israel!

     

     

    Voice 2:

    24   For he did not despise or abhor

    the affliction of the afflicted;

    he did not hide his face from me,

    but heard when I cried to him.

    25   From you comes my praise in the great congregation;

    my vows I will pay before those who fear him.

    26   The poor shall eat and be satisfied;

    those who seek him shall praise the Lord.

    May your hearts live forever!

    Voices 1 and 2 together:

    27   All the ends of the earth shall remember

    and turn to the Lord;

    and all the families of the nations

    shall worship before him.

    28   For dominion belongs to the Lord,

    and he rules over the nations.

    29   To him, indeed, shall all who sleep in the earth bow down;

    before him shall bow all who go down to the dust,

    and I shall live for him.

    30   Posterity will serve him;

    future generations will be told about the Lord,

    31   and proclaim his deliverance to a people yet unborn,

    saying that he has done it.

    All Sing:

    And when from death I’m free, I’ll sing on, I’ll sing on!

    And when from death I’m free, I’ll sing on!

    Sermon Hymn:

    My God, My God, Why Have You Forsaken Me?

    (Congregation sings refrain. Solo sings the verses.)

    Refrain:  My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?

     

    Verse 1

    People who see me are scornful,

    Sneering at me and tossing their heads.

    “His trust was in God, let God save him,

    Come to the aid of his own special friend!”

    Refrain:  My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?

     

    Verse 2

    Dogs have surrounded me, howling;

    Criminal gangs approach and attack.

    My hands and my feet they are tearing,

    All of my bones can be easily seen.

    Refrain:  My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?

     

    Verse 3

    They have divided my clothing,

    Gambling with straws or dice for my robe.

    Please, God, do not leave me forsaken,

    Hasten to help me, O God of my strength.

    Refrain:  My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?

     

    Verse 4

    I will proclaim to my people;

    Your name, O Lord, they worship and praise.

    All children of Jacob, give glory,

    Children of Israel, come worship your God.

    Refrain:  My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
