WELCOME

PRAYER OF CONFESSION

Jesus our Lord, we shout hosannas to praise you.  With eager hands, we place our cloaks and palms on the path before you.  Yet, Lord, we confess that the mouths that seek to praise you often deny or defy you.  We confess that the hands that seek to serve you often become fists.  Lord, hear us as we confess our sin.


(Silence for personal reflection and confession)


ASSURANCE OF PARDON

Hosanna to the Son of David!

Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!

For Christ came into the world not to condemn the world,

but that the world though him should be saved.

Therefore, be imitators of God, as beloved children.

And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us,

a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

Hosanna!  Amen!

COMMUNION SONG

Were You There?

American Folk Hymn

 

Were you there when they crucified my Lord?

Were you there when they crucified my Lord?

O!  Sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble.

Were you there when they crucified my Lord?

CLOSING SONG

May the Mind of Christ My Savior

Words by Kate B. Wilkinson, Music by Cyril Barham-Gould

May the mind of Christ, my Savior, live in me from day to day,

By His love and power controlling all I do and say.

 

May the word of God dwell richly in my heart from hour to hour,

So that all may see I triumph only through His power.

 

May the peace of God, my Father, rule my life in everything,

That I may be calm to comfort sick and sorrowing.

 

May the love of Jesus fill me, as the waters fill the sea;

Him exalting, self-abasing—this is victory.

 

May I run the race before me, strong and brave to face the foe,

Looking only unto Jesus as I onward go.

 

May His beauty rest upon me as I seek the lost to win,

And may they forget the channel, seeing only Him.
