    Assembly: And did not Jesus sing a psalm that night When utmost evil strove against the light? Then let us sing, for whom he won the fight: A-lleluia.

    Assembly: Let evry instrument be tuned for praise; Let all rejoice who have a voice to raise, And may God give us faith to sing always: A-lleluia.

    Hymn by Congregation: O Sacred Head, Now Wounded (Melody: Herzlich Tut Mich Verlangen), CW 105 Organist: Prof. Randy Bode Prelude on Herzlich Tut Mich Verlangen composed by Michael Burkhardt

    Congregation: O sacred head, now wounded, with grief and shame weighed down, Now scornfully surrounded, with thorns your only crown, O sacred head, no glory now from your face does shine; Yet, though despised and gory, I joy to call you mine.

    My burden in your passion, Lord, you have borne for me, For it was my transgression, my shame, on Calvary. I cast me down before you; wrath is my rightful lot. Have mercy, I implore you; Redeemer, spurn me not!

    Lord, be my consolation, my shield when I must die; Remind me of your passion when my last hour draws nigh. My eyes will then behold you, upon your cross will dwell; My heart will then enfold you who dies in faith dies well!
