Author: Peter Abélard; Richard Lyman Sturch Hymnal: GG2013 #206 (2013) Meter: 18.104.22.168 Person Name: Peter Abélard First Line: This is the night, dear friends, the night for weeping Lyrics: 1 This is the night, dear friends, the night for weeping,
when powers of darkness overcome the day,
the night the faithful mourn the weight of evil
whereby our sins the Son of Man betray.
2 This night the traitor, wolf within the sheepfold,
betrays himself into his victim’s will,
the Lamb of God for sacrifice preparing:
sin brings about the cure for sin’s own ill.
3 This night Christ institutes his holy supper,
blest food and drink for heart and soul and mind;
this night injustice joins its hand to treason’s,
and buys the ransom-price of humankind.
4 This night the Lord by slaves shall be arrested,
he who destroys our slavery to sin;
accused of crime, to criminals be given,
that judgment on the righteous Judge begin.
5 O make us sharers, Savior, of your Passion,
that we may share your glory that shall be;
let us pass through these three dark nights of sorrow
to Easter’s laughter and its liberty. Topics: Christian Year Palm Sunday; Christian Year Maundy Thursday; Christian Year Good Friday; Jesus Christ Passion and Death Scripture: Isaiah 53:7 Languages: English Tune Title: MY NEIGHBOR

shown on your cross of wood.

Author: James Waddell Alexander Hymnal: GG2013 #221 (2013) Meter: 220.127.116.11 D Person Name: James Waddell Alexander Lyrics: 1 O sacred head, now wounded,
with grief and shame weighed down;
now scornfully surrounded
with thorns, thine only crown;
O sacred head, what glory,
what bliss till now was thine!
Yet, though despised and gory,
I joy to call thee mine.
2 What thou, my Lord, hast suffered
was all for sinners’ gain:
mine, mine was the transgression,
but thine the deadly pain.
Lo, here I fall, my Savior!
’Tis I deserve thy place;
look on me with thy favor,
and grant to me thy grace.
3 What language shall I borrow
to thank thee, dearest friend,
for this thy dying sorrow,
thy pity without end?
O make me thine forever;
and should I fainting be,
Lord, let me never, never
outlive my love to thee. Topics: Atonement; Repentance; Love for God; Living in Christ; Jesus Christ Passion and Death; Grace; Christian Year Good Friday; Christian Year Maundy Thursday; Christian Year Palm Sunday; Sin Scripture: Isaiah 53:3-5 Languages: English Tune Title: PASSION CHORALE
Author: Henry Alford Hymnal: GG2013 #367 (2013) Meter: 18.104.22.168 D Person Name: Henry Alford First Line: Come, ye thankful people come Lyrics: 1 Come, ye thankful people, come;
raise the song of harvest home.
All is safely gathered in,
ere the winter storms begin.
God, our Maker, doth provide
for our wants to be supplied.
Come to God's own temple, come;
raise the song of harvest home.
2 All the world is God's own field,
fruit in thankful praise to yield,
wheat and tares together sown,
unto joy or sorrow grown.
First the blade, and then the ear,
then the full corn shall appear.
Lord of harvest, grant that we
wholesome grain and pure may be.
3 For the Lord our God shall come,
and shall take the harvest home;
from each field shall in that day
all offenses purge away;
give the angels charge at last
in the fire the tares to cast,
but the fruitful ears to store
in God's garner evermore.
4 Even so, Lord, quickly come
to thy final harvest home.
Gather thou thy people in,
free from sorrow, free from sin,
there forever purified,
in thy presence to abide:
come, with all thine angels, come;
raise the glorious harvest home!
