PRELUDE:  Passion (based on “Herzliebster Jesu”) by Max Reger



HYMN:  Ah, Holy Jesus [Herzliebster Jesu]



SOLO:  The Cross of Calvary by Charles Gounod; Myles Mineer, bass

Come all ye weary, cease from your sighing, come to the Cross where the Savior is dying.  Here lowly kneeling, each sin confessing, rest shall be given you, pardon and blessing; come ye, O come ye to Calvary! Come for He calls you, waits to receive you; life everlasting He freely will give you!   Will ye unheeding turn from His pleading?  Pass not, O pass not by Calvary!  Come then, ye weary, kneel ye before Him, banish your sorrows, gladly adore Him; His death your life shall be!  Yet, O remember Calvary! [Alfred Phillips]


SCRIPTURE  LESSON:  Hebrews 10:11-22

SOLO:  O Divine Redeemer (from “The Redemptor”)  by Charles Gounod

Ah!  Turn me not away, receive me, though unworthy!  Hear Thou my cry, behold, Lord, my distress!  Answer me from thy throne, haste Thee, Lord, to mine aid, thy pity show in my deep anguish!  Let not the sword of vengeance smite me, though righteous thine anger, O Lord!  Shield me in danger, O regard me!  On Thee, Lord, alone will I call.  O divine Redeemer!  I pray Thee, grant me pardon, and remember not my sins!  Forgive me, O, divine Redeemer!  Night gathers round my soul; fearful, I cry to Thee; come to mine aid, O Lord!  Haste Thee, Lord, to help me!  Hear my cry!  Save me, Lord, in Thy mercy; come and save me, O Lord!  Save, in the day of retribution, from Death shield Thou me, O my God!  O divine Redeemer, have mercy!

SERMON:  “The Perfect Sacrifice to Perfect the Imperfect”

HYMN:  My Song Is Love Unknown [Unknown Love]

SOLO RESPONSE:  There is a Green Hill Far Away (from “Calvary”) by Charles Gounod; Miles Mineer, bass

There is a green hill far away, without a city wall, where the dear Lord was crucified, who died to save us all.  We may not know, we cannot tell, what pains He had to bear, but we believe it was for us He hung and suffered there.  He died that we might be forgiven, He died to make us good, that we might go at last to Heaven, saved by His precious blood.  There was no other good enough to pay the price of sin, He only could unlock the gate of Heaven and let us in.  O dearly has He loved, and we must love Him, too, and trust in His redeeming blood, and try His works to do!
