On Good Friday we remembered The Song of God, Jesus Christ,who humbled himself and became obedient to the cross. God has exalted him who has redeemed us from the bondage of sin and given us new freedom. Through our songs and prayers we expressed our gratefulness for Jesus the Christ, what he has done and continues to do for us.

Gathering Song: O Sacred Head Now Wounded – Words: At­trib­ut­ed to Ber­nard of Clair­vaux (1153), Translation: James W. Al­ex­and­er (1830), Music: Page CXVI

O sacred Head, now wounded, with grief and shame weighed down,
Now scornfully surrounded with thorns, Thine only crown;
How pale are Thou with anguish, with sore abuse and scorn!
O how your face bears sorrow that once was bright as morn!

You bled by our hands. You bled by our hands.
You bled by our hands. You bled.

Come Ye Sinners – Words: Joseph Hart (1759), Music: Christine Cover and Greg Weile, Arrangement: The Crossing Music

Come, ye sinners, poor and needy,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore;
Jesus ready stands to save you,
Full of pity, love and power.

On the bloody Cross behold Him,
Sinner, will this not suffice,
Lo! the incarnate God ascended,
Pleads His perfect sacrifice.

Michael Porter lead us through a reading of The Passion of Christ from The Gospel of John.

Later, knowing that everything had now been finished, and so that Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, “I am thirsty.” A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips. When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

Medley: The Gospel Song/When I Survey the Wondrous Cross/The Wonderful Cross

The Gospel Song by Drew Jones and Bob Kauflin

Holy God, in love, became
perfect Man to bear my blame.
On the cross He took my sin.
By His death I live again.

When I Survey the Wondrous Cross – Words: Isaac Watts (1707), Music: Lowell Mason (1824)

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.

The Wonderful Cross by Matt Redman and Chris Tomlin

O the wonderful cross, O the wonderful cross,
bids me come and die
and find that I may truly live.

O the wonderful cross, O the wonderful cross
All who gather here by grace draw near
and bless Your name.

TheCrossing-5

Were You There – Words: Traditional African Spiritual, Music: Clint Well

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

Rock of Ages – Words: Augustus M. Toplady (1776), Contemporary chorus by Page CXVI (2009). Arrangement by Page CXVI and David Wilton

Nothing in my hand I bring,
simply to the cross I cling.
Naked, come to Thee for dress;
Helpless look to Thee for grace.
Foul, I to the fountain fly;
Wash me, Savior or I die.

After a time of silent confession, we heard the assurance of our forgiveness from Colossians 1:19-22.

For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.

Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation.

Jesus Paid it All – Words: Elvina M. Hall (1865), Music: John T. Grape (1835-1915), Arrangement: Kings Kaleidoscope

Lord, now indeed I find
Thy power and Thine alone,
can change the leper’s spots
and melt the heart of stone.”

Jesus paid it all, all to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow.

We participated in the sacrament of communion as we sang the following songs.

How Deep the Father’s Love For Us by Stuart Townend, We used the arrangement by King’s Kaleidoscope

How deep the Father’s love for us,
how vast beyond all measure
that He should give His only Son
to make a wretch His treasure.
How great the pain of searing loss,
the Father turns His face away
as wounds which mar the chosen One
bring many sons to glory.

Death in His Grave by John Mark McMillan

On friday a thief, on sunday a king
laid down in grief
but woke with the keys
of hell on that day.
First born of the slain
the man, Jesus Christ, laid
death in his grave.
