Holy Week: Palm Sunday, March 24, 2013

Sunday worship, March 24, 2012

Today marks the beginning of Holy Week, a time when we fix our eyes on Jesus’ triumphal entry, crucifixion and resurrection from the dead. On Palm Sunday we remember that Jesus set out for Jerusalem and was proclaimed Messiah and King by those whose shouts of “Hosanna!” later became cries of, “crucify Him!” During the worship service, we followed Christ’s path from Jerusalem to the cross, seeking Him as our true Savior and King.

This week’s Sunday song review features photos by Nate Herndon. You’ll find links in the song titles that will allow you to purchase recorded versions of the songs (where available)

All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name – Words by Edward Perronet (1780), Contemporary chorus by Judah Groveman (based on a arrangement by Jaron and Katherine Kamon)

All hail the power of Jesus’ Name!
Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
and crown Him Lord of all.
Bring forth the royal diadem,
and crown Him Lord of all.

Here is Our King (chorus only) by David Crowder

Here is our King, here is our love,
here is our God who’s come
to bring us back to Him.
He is the One, He is Jesus.

Hail to the Lord’s Anointed – Words: James Montgomery (1821), Music and Arrangement: Vito Aiuto (2008), Arrangement: The Crossing Music

Hail to the Lord’s anointed,
great David’s greater Son!
Hail in the time appointed,
His reign on earth begun!
He comes to break oppression,
to set the captive free;
To take away transgression
and rule in equity.

We read the Gospel of Mark’s account of Jesus’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem.

When they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks over it, he sat on it. Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields. Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted,

“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”
“Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!”
“Hosanna in the highest!”

The scripture reading was followed by a time of confession and assurance adapted from the Worship Sourcebook and based on Matthew 21:8-9, John 3:17, and Ephesians 5:1-2.

Hosanna to the Son of David!
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!

For Christ came into the world not to condemn the world,
but that the world through him should be saved.

Therefore, be imitators of God, as beloved children.
Walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us,
a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. Hosanna in the Highest!

by Brooke Fraser

I see the King of Glory
coming on the clouds with fire,
the whole earth shakes,
The whole earth shakes.
Hosanna! Hosanna!
Hosanna in the highest!

Medley: The Gospel Song/When I Survey the Wondrous Cross/The Wonderful Cross

The Gospel Song (by Drew Jones and Bob Kauflin) is a simple song that reveals the complex reality of what Jesus Christ did for us on the cross.

Holy God, in love, became
perfect Man to bear my blame.
On the cross He took my sin.
By His death I live again.

When I Survey the Wondrous Cross (Words: Isaac Watts – 1707, Music: Lowell Mason – 1824) helps us to further mediate on the cross and consider how we should live our lives in response to Christ’s sacrifice.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.

Once we recognize that the cross “demands” that we give our lives for the sake of Gospel, the chorus from The Wonderful Cross (by Matt Redman and Chris Tomlin) recognizes it is God’s grace which gives us the help we need to do so.

O the wonderful cross, O the wonderful cross,
bids me come and die
and find that I may truly live.

O the wonderful cross, O the wonderful cross
All who gather here by grace draw near
and bless Your name.
