Resurrection Sunday

 Reading from Luke 24:1-53


Christ the Lord is Risen Today

Christ the Lord is risen today, Alleluia!
All Creation joins to say, Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia!
Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply, Alleluia!
Lives again our glorious Kind, Alleluia!
Where, O death, is now thy sting, Alleluia!
Dying once, He all doth save, Alleluia!
Where’s thy victory, O grave? Alleluia!
Love’s redeeming work is done, Alleluia!
Fought the fight the battle won, Alleluia!
Death in vain forbids Him rise, Alleluia!
Christ has opened paradise, Alleluia!

Resurrection Sunday Reading


Reading from Matthew 27:62-66


Alas And Did My Savior Bleed

Alas! And did my Savior bleed,
And did my Sovereign die!
Would He devote that sacred head
For sinners such as I?
At the cross, at the cross where I first saw the light,
And the burden of my heart rolled away,
It was there by faith, I received my sight,
And now I am happy all the day!
Was it for crimes that I have done,
He groaned upon the tree?
Amazing pity! Grace unknown!
And love beyond degree!
But drops of grief could never repay
The debt of love I owe.
Here, Lord, I give myself away;
‘Tis all that I can do.

Saturday Reading

 Good Friday

 Reading from Luke 23:1-56


 When I Survey the Wondrous Cross

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died,
My richest gain, I count but loss, 
And pour contempt on all my pride.
See, from His head, His hand, His feet,
Sorrow and love flow mingled down.
Did ever such love and sorrow meet,
Or thorns compose so rich a crown?
Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were an offering far too small.
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.

Good Friday Reading


 Reading from Luke 22:7-71


 The Old Rugged Cross

On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross
The emblem of suffering and shame;
And I love that old cross where the dearest and best
For a world of lost sinners was slain.
So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross,
Till my trophies at last I lay down;
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
And exchange it some day for a crown.  
O that old rugged cross, so despised by the world,
Has a wondrous attraction for me;
For the dear Lamb of God left His glory above
To bear it to dark Calvary.
To that old rugged cross I will ever be true,
Its shame and reproach gladly bear;
Then He’ll call me some day to my home far away,
Where His glory forever I’ll share.

Thursday Reading


Reading from Luke 21:4-22:6


What Can Wash Away My Sin?

What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
O Precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
For my pardon this I see:
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
For my cleansing this my plea:
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
Nothing can for sin atone,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
Naught of good that I have done,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
This is all my hope and peace,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
This is all my righteousness,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!

Wednesday Reading


Reading from Luke 20:27-21:4


How Firm A Foundation

How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord

Is laid for your faith in His excellent Word!
What more can He say than to you He hath said,
To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled.  
“When through the deep waters I call thee to go,
The rivers of sorrow will not overflow;
For I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless,
And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress.”  
“When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,
My grace, all sufficient, shall be thy supply;
The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design
Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine.”
“The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose,
I will not, I will not desert to his foes;
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake, 
I’ll never, no never, no never forsake!”

Tuesday Reading


Reading from Luke 19:47-20:26


And Can It Be

And can it be that I should gain
An int’rest in the Savior’s blood?
Died He for me, who caused His pain?
For me, who Him to death pursued?
Amazing love! how can it be
That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?
Amazing love! how can it be
That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?


He left His Father’s throne above,
So free, so infinite His grace;
Emptied Himself of all but love,
And bled for Adam’s helpless race:
’Tis mercy all, immense and free;
For, O my God, it found out me.
Amazing love! how can it be
That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?

Long my imprisoned spirit lay
Fast bound in sin and nature’s night;
Thine eye diffused a quickening ray,
I woke, the dungeon flamed with light;
My chains fell off, my heart was free,
I rose, went forth, and followed Thee.
Amazing love! how can it be
That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?


No condemnation now I dread;
Jesus, and all in Him, is mine!
Alive in Him, my living Head,
And clothed in righteousness Divine,
Bold I approach the eternal throne,
And claim the crown, through Christ my own.
Amazing love! how can it be
That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?

 Palm Sunday

 Reading from Luke 19:28-46


O Worship The King

O worship the King, all glorious above
And gratefully sing His wonderful love
Our Shield and Defender, the Ancient of Days
Pavilioned in splendor and girded with praise
O tell of His might, O sing of His grace
Whose robe is the light and canopy space
His chariots of wrath that deep thunderclouds form
And dark is His path on the wings of the storm
O measureless might, ineffable love
While angels delight to worship above
Thy mercies how tender, how firm to the end
Our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend
