Palm Sunday – Songs and Scenes from April 17, 2011

041711 2079 Crossing Worship

This Sunday marked beginning of Holy Week where we remember Jesus’s triumphal entry, crucifixion and resurrection from the dead. With Palm Sunday we specifically remember when Jesus set out for Jerusalem and was proclaimed Messiah and King by those whose shouts of “Hosanna!” would soon become cries of, “crucify Him!” This morning, we followed Christ’s path from Jerusalem to the cross, seeking Him as our true Savior and King.

Kingdom Days by Randall Goodgame

Lord, Thy mercies never fail,
Lord, they never fail.
Hail my savior, Jesus, hail,
hail King Jesus, hail.

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

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.

Kristen 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, 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!

During communion we sang the following songs:

At the Foot of the Cross (Ashes to Beauty) by Kathryn Scott

Now I can trade these ashes in for beauty
and wear forgiveness like a crown.
Coming to kiss the feet of mercy
I lay ev’ry burden down
at the foot of the cross.

When I Survey the Wondrous Cross – Words by Isaac Watts (1749), Music by Lowell Mason (1824)

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.

You Are My King (Amazing Love) By Billy Foote

Amazing love, how can it be
that you my King would die for me?
Amazing love, I know it’s true
it’s my joy to honor you.
