Monday of Holy Week

Monday of Holy Week

Hello church family,

Throughout this week I will be posting lyrics and links to songs we will be singing together this Friday night at our Good Friday service.  I will also be sending along scripture passages to help guide us through the events of the most important week of the most important person who ever lived.

When I Survey the Wondrous Cross – Words by Isaac Watts (1707).

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

Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast
Save in the death of Christ, my God
All the vain things that charm me most
I sacrifice them to His blood

See, from His head, His hands, His feet
Sorrow and love flow mingled down
Did e’er such love and sorrow meet
Or thorns compose so rich a crown?

Were all the realms of nature mine
That were an offering far too small
Love so amazing, so divine
Demands my soul, my life, my all
