All For YOU & ME! - Good Friday


Let's NEVER forget what Jesus Christ has done for ALL of us!  Please join me in reverent worship through song - Praising and thanking our Lord and Savior!



Turn with me to number 141 in your hymnals and let's sing:



When I Survey the Wondrous Cross
written by Isaac Watts (1674-1748)   composed by Lowell Mason (1792-1872)

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 Lord;  All the vain things that charm me most, I sacrifice them to 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 a present far too small:  Love so amazing, so divine, Demands my soul, my life, my all.

Beneath the Cross of Jesus
written by Elizabeth C. Clephane (1830-1869) & composed by Frederick C. Maker (1844-1927)

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 noon-tide 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, they 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.

Lead Me to Calvary

by Jennie Evelyn Hussey, (1874-1958) composed by William J. Kirkpatrick,(1838-1921)



1. King of my life, I crown Thee now, Thine shall the glory be;  Lest I forget Thy thorn-crowned brow, Lead me to Calvary.


CHORUS

2.   Show me the tomb where Thou wast laid, Tenderly mourned and wept;  Angels in robes of light arrayed Guarded Thee whilst Thou slept.

CHORUS

3.  Let me like Mary, through the gloom, Come with a gift to Thee;  Show to me now the empty tomb, Lead me to Calvary..

CHORUS

4.  May I be willing, Lord, to bear Daily my cross for Thee;  Even Thy cup of grief to share, Thou hast borne all for me.
CHORUS

Chorus
 Lest I forget Gethsemane;  Lest I forget Thine agony; 
Lest I forget Thy love for me, Lead me to Calvary.

Turn with me to number 165 in your hymnals and let's sing:
Crown Him With Many Crowns
by Matthew Bridges (1800-1894) and Godfrey Thring (1822-1903)
composed by George J. Elvey (1816-1893)
1. Crown Him with many crowns, The Lamb upon His throne;  Hark! how the heavenly anthem drowns All music but its own.  Awake, my soul, and sing Of Him who died for thee, And hail Him as thy matchless King Through all eternity.
 
2.   Crown Him the Lord of life, Who triumphed o'er the grave, And rose victorious in the strife For those He came to save;  His glories now we sing Who died, and rose on high, Who died- eternal life to bring, And lives, that death may die.
 
3.  Crown Him the Lord of peace, Whose power a scepter sways From pole to pole, that wars may cease, And all be prayer and praise:  His reign shall know no end, And round His pierced feet Fair flowers of paradise extend Their fragrance ever sweet.

4.  Crown Him the Lord of love; Behold His hands and side, Those wounds, yet visible above, In beauty glorified:  All hail, Redeemer, hail!  For Thou hast died for me:  Thy praise and glory shall not fail Throughout eternity.

At The Cross
by Isaac Watts (1674-1748) composed by R. E. Hudson
1. Alas, and did my Saviour blee? And did my Sov'reign die?  Would He devote that sacred head For such a one as I?
CHORUS
2.   Was it for crimes that I have done, He groaned upon the tree?  Amazing pity!  grace unknown!  And love beyond degree!
CHORUS
3.  Well might the sun in darkness hide, And shut his glories in.  When Christ, the mighty Maker died For man, the creature's sin.
CHORUS

4.  But drops of grief can ne'er repay The debt of love I owe:  Here, Lord, I give myself away, 'Tis all that I can do!
CHORUS

Chorus
At the cross, at the cross where I first saw the light, And the burden of my heart rolled away, (rolled away) It was there by faith I received my sight, And now I am happy all the day!
