 * Prelude

* Psalm 22: My God, My God   T. Manion  (tune: ELH 452)

 All: Hope waits for the accepted hour  Till God give joy for mourning;

 When He displays His healing pow'r,  Thy sighs to songs are turning.

 Thy needs are known unto thy Lord,  And He is faithful to His Word,

 This is our hope's foundation.

 Though it may seem He hears thee not,  Count not thyself forsaken;

 Thy wants are ne'er by Him forgot,  Let this thy hope awaken;

 His word is sure, here is thy stay,  Though doubts may plague thee on thy way,

 Let not thy faith be shaken.

Solo: My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?  /  All: My God…

 Solo: All who see me laugh at me. They shake their heads,

 “He trusted in God, let God deliver Him, if God loves him.”

  / All: My God…

Solo: Closely, now they press me ‘round and pierce me through,

 “He trusted in God, let God deliver Him, if God loves him.”

/ All: My God…

Solo: All is taken, all is lost. Be near, my help. Come near, my help.

 I trusted in God, may God deliver me. O deliver me, as you love me.

 I long to stand in the midst of your people, and sing your name.

 Give God your laud, cry out your praises, and hold fast to the Lord.

/ All: My God...

All: As Christ hath full atonement madeAnd brought to us salvation,

So may each Christian now be gladAnd build on this foundation;

Thy grace alone, dear Lord, I plead,Thy death is

now my life indeed,For Thou hast paid my ransom.

Scripture

Romans 5:1-5 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
