"Ach Herr, mich armen Sünder" [LBW 117]
I. Melody on chimes II. Hymn III. Chorale Prelude by Dietrich BUXTEHUDE
but soften your stern wrath otherwise I am lost.
Ah Lord, may it be your will to forgive my sin and be merciful
so that I may live forever and flee from the pains of hell.
|Sing along with the hymn: Wash, O God, Our Sons and Daughters|
Number them among your people; bless as Christ blessed long ago.
Wave them garments bright and sparkling; compass them with love and light
Fill, anoint them; send your Spirit, holy dove and heart's delight.
Let us join your feast, partaking cup of blessing, living bread.
God, renew us, guide our footsteps; free from sin and all its snares,
one with Christ in living, dying, by your Spirit, children, heirs.
To your name be glory, honor! With our lives we worship, praise!
We your people stand before you, water washed and Spirit born.
By your grace, our lives we offer, Recreate us; God, transform!
|Sing along with the hymn: Go to Dark Gethsemane, LBW 109|
Your Redeemer’s conflict see. Watch with him one bitter hour;
Turn not from his griefs away; Learn from Jesus Christ to pray.
Oh, the wormwood and the gall! Oh, the pangs his soul sustained!
Shun not suffering, shame, or loss; Learn from him to bear the cross.
Mark that miracle of time, God’s own sacrifice complete.
"It is finished!" hear him cry; Learn from Jesus Christ to die.
All is solitude and gloom. Who has taken him away?
Christ is ris’n! He meets our eyes. Savior, teach us so to rise.
