Greeting:
One: Christ bore our sins in his body on the cross.
Together we say: That we might die to sin and live to righteousness.

We pray together: 
Almighty God, your son Jesus Christ was lifted high upon the cross so that he might draw the whole world to himself. Grant that we, who glory in his death for our salvation, may also glory in his call to take up our cross and follow him; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Hymn 626 Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence, verses 1, 2
1 Let all mortal flesh keep silence, 
and with fear and trembling stand; 
ponder nothing earthly-minded, 
for with blessing in his hand,
Christ our God to earth descendeth, 
our full homage to demand. 

2 King of kings, yet born of Mary, 
as of old on earth he stood, 
Lord of lords, in human vesture,
in the body and the blood, 
he will give to all the faithful 
his own self for heav'nly food.

Isaiah 52:13 to 53:1

Responsive reading 752 Psalm 22:1-18, 25-31
1 My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
   Why are you so far from helping me, from the words of my groaning? 
2 O my God, I cry by day, but you do not answer;
   and by night, but find no rest. 
3 Yet you, the praise of Israel, are enthroned in holiness. 
In you our forbears trusted;
   they trusted, and you delivered them. 

5 To you they cried, and were saved;
   in you they trusted, and were not disappointed. 

6 But I am a worm, and not human;
   scorned by others, and despised by the people. 
7 All who see me mock at me;
   they make mouths at me, they wag their heads; 
8 ‘He committed his cause to the Lord; let the Lord deliver him.
   Let the Lord rescue him, for the Lord delights in him! 
Yet it was you who took me from the womb;
   you kept me safe on my mother’s breast. 

10 Upon you I was cast from my birth,
   and since my mother bore me, you have been my God. 
11 Do not be far from me, for trouble is near
   and there is none to help. 

12 Many bulls encompass me,
   strong bulls of Bashan surround me; 
13 they open wide their mouths at me,
   like a ravening and roaring lion. 

14 I am poured out like water,
   and all my bones are out of joint;
my heart is like wax;
   it is melted within my breast; 
15 my mouth is dried up like a potsherd,
   and my tongue cleaves to my jaws;
   you lay me in the dust of death. 

16 Indeed, dogs surround me;
   a company of evildoers encircles me;
they have pierced my hands and feet-

17 I can count all my bones-
they stare and gloat over me; 
18 they divide my garments among them,
   and for my raiment they cast lots. 

25 From you comes my praise in the great congregation;
   my vows I will pay before those who worship the Lord. 
26 The poor shall eat and be satisfied;
   those who seek the Lord shall praise the Lord.
   May your hearts live for ever! 

27 All the ends of the earth shall remember
   and turn to the Lord;
and all the families of the nations
   shall worship before the Lord. 

28 For dominion belongs to the Lord, who rules over the nations. 
29 All who sleep in the earth shall bow down to the Lord.
   All who go down to the dust shall bow before the Lord, and I shall live for God. 
30 Posterity shall serve the Lord;
   each generation shall tell the Lord, 
31 and proclaim his deliverance to a people yet unborn.
   Surely the Lord has done it.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen

Hebrews 10:16-25  

Sermon Two Gardens

Hymn Jesus Paid It All 
1 I hear the Savior say,
"Thy strength indeed is small,
Child of weakness, watch and pray,
Find in Me thine all in all."
Refrain:
Jesus paid it all,
All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow.

2 Lord, now indeed I find
Thy pow'r and Thine alone,
Can change the leper's spots
And melt the heart of stone. (Refrain)

3 For nothing good have I
Where-by Thy grace to claim;
I'll wash my garments white
In the blood of Calv'ry's Lamb. (Refrain)

4 And when, before the throne,
I stand in Him complete,
"Jesus died my soul to save,"
My lips shall still repeat. (Refrain)

Hymn 292 What Wondrous Love Is Thisverses 1-2
1 What wondrous love is this, O my soul, O my soul,
what wondrous love is this, O my soul! 
What wondrous love is this that caused the Lord of bliss 
to bear the dreadful curse for my soul, for my soul, 
to bear the dreadful curse for my soul! 

2 What wondrous love is this, O my soul, O my soul,
what wondrous love is this, O my soul! 
What wondrous love is this that caused the Lord of life 
to lay aside his crown foe my soul, for my soul,
To lay aside his crown for my soul.

Hymn 415 Take up Thy Crossverses 1-2
1 "Take up thy cross," the Savior said,
"if thou wouldst my disciple be;
Deny thyself, the world forsake,
and humbly follow after me.”

2 Take up thy cross; let not its weight
fill thy weak spirit with alarm;
His strength shall bear thy spirit up
and brace thy heart and nerve thine arm.

Hymn 415 Take up Thy Cross, verses 3-4
3 Take up thy cross, nor heed the shame,
nor let thy foolish pride rebel;
Thy Lord for thee the cross endured
To save thy soul from death and hell.

4 Take up thy cross, and follow Christ,
Nor think till death to lay it down;
For only those who bear the cross
May hope to wear the glorious crown.

Hymn 298 When I Survey the Wondrous Cross
1 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.

2 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 through his blood.

3 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?

4 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.

Hymn 172 My Jesus, I love Thee
1 My Jesus, I love thee, I know thou art mine;
for thee all the follies of sin I resign;
my gracious Redeemer, my Savior art thou;
if ever I loved thee, my Jesus, 'tis now.

2 I love thee because thou hast first loved me
and purchased my pardon on Calvary's tree;
I love thee for wearing the thorns on thy brow;
if ever I loved thee, my Jesus, 'tis now.

3 In mansions of glory and endless delight,
I'll ever adore thee in heaven so bright;
I'll sing with the glittering crown on my brow:
If ever I loved thee, my Jesus, 'tis now.

Hymn 285 To Mock Your Reign
1 To mock your reign, O dearest Lord,
they made a crown of thorns;
set you with taunts along that road
from which no one returns.
They could not know, as we do now,
How glorious is your crown;
that thorns would flower upon your brow,
your sorrows heal our own.

2 In mock acclaim, O gracious Lord,
they snatched a purple cloak,
your passion turned, for all they cared,
into a soldier's joke.
They could not know, as we do now,
that though we merit blame
you will your robe of mercy throw
around our naked shame.

3 A sceptered reed, O patient Lord,
they thrust into your hand,
and acted out their grim charade
to its appointed end.
They could not know, as we do now,
though empires rise and fall,
your Kingdom shall not cease to grow
till love embraces all.
WORDS: Fred Pratt Green, 1972. MUSIC: English melody; arr. by Ralph Vaughan Williams, 1906. ccli #242496

Hymn 288 Were You There, verses 1-3
1 Were you there when they crucified my Lord? 
Were you there when they crucified my Lord? 
Oh, sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble. 
Were you there when they crucified my Lord? 

2 Were you there when they nailed him to the tree? 
Were you there when they nailed him to the tree? 
Oh, sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble. 
Were you there when they nailed him to the tree? 

3 Were you there when they pierced him in the side?
Were you there when they pierced him in the side?
Oh, sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble. 
Were you there when they pierced him in the side?

Hymn 272 Sing of Mary, Pure and Lowly
Sing of Mary, pure and lowly,
Maiden mother, wise and mild, 
Sing of God's own Son most holy,
Who became her little child.
Fairest child of fairest mother,
God the Lord who came to earth,
Word made flesh, our very brother,
Takes our nature by his birth.

Sing of Jesus, son of Mary,
In the home at Nazareth.
Toil and labor cannot weary 
Love enduring unto death.
Constant was the love he gave her,
Though it drove him from her side,
Forth to preach, and heal, and suffer,
Till on Calvary he died.

Joyful mother, full of gladness, 
In thine arms thy Lord was borne.
Mournful mother,  full of sadness,
All thy heart with pain was torn.
Glorious mother, now rewarded
With a crown at Jesus’ hand,
Age to age thy name recorded 
Shall be blest in every land.

Hymn 297 Beneath the Cross of Jesus
1 Beneath the cross of Jesus
I fain would take my stand,
the shadow of a mighty Rock
within a weary land;
a home within the wilderness,
a rest upon the way,
from the burning of the noontide heat
and the burden of the day.

2 Upon that cross of Jesus
mine eye at times can see
the very dying form of One
who suffered there for me:
and from my stricken heart with tears
two wonders I confess,
the wonders of redeeming love and my unworthiness.

3 I take, O cross, thy shadow
for my abiding place:
I ask no other sunshine than
the sunshine of his face;
content to let the world go by,
to know no gain nor loss;
my sinful self my only shame,
my glory all the cross.

Hymn 288 Were You There, verses 4-5
4 Were you there when the sun refused to shine?
Were you there when the sun refused to shine?
Oh, sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble. 
Were you there when the sun refused to shine?

5 Were you there when they laid him in the tomb? 
Were you there when they laid him in the tomb? 
Oh, sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble. 
Were you there when they laid him in the tomb?

Dismissal: 
Go in peace. May Jesus Christ, who for our sake became obedient unto death, even death on a cross, keep you and strengthen you this night and for ever. Amen.
