GREETING *


Christ himself bore our sins in his body on the tree. That we might die to sin and live to righteousness. Let us pray.

Almighty God,

your Son Jesus Christ was lifted high upon the cross so that he might draw the whole world to himself. Grant that we, who glory in this death for our salvation,

may also glory in his call to take up our cross and follow him; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Reading: Isaiah 52:13 –53:12

SILENT MEDITATION


THE REPROACHES:

CHRIST'S LAMENT AGAINST HIS FAITHLESS CHURCH

1) O my people, O my Church,

what have I done to you, or in what have I offended you? I led you forth from the land of Egypt

and delivered you by the waters of baptism,

but you have prepared a cross for your Savior.



“Jesus, Remember Me” #488 UMH

2) I led you through the desert forty years and fed you with manna; I brought you through times of persecution and of renewal and gave you my body, the bread of heaven;

but you have prepared a cross for your Savior.


“Jesus, Remember Me” #488 UMH


3) I made you branches of my vineyard

and gave you the water of salvation,

but when I was thirsty you gave me vinegar and gall and pierced with a spear the side of your Savior.


“Jesus, Remember Me” #488 UMH


4) I went before you in a pillar of cloud,

but you have led me to the judgment hall of Pilate.

I brought you to a land of freedom and prosperity,

but you have scourged, mocked, and beaten me.


“Jesus, Remember Me” #488 UMH


5) I gave you a royal scepter, and bestowed the keys to the kingdom, but you have given me a crown of thorns.

I raised you on high with great power,

but you have hanged me on the cross.


“Jesus, Remember Me” #488 UMH


6) My peace I gave, which the world cannot give, and washed your feet as a servant,

but you draw the sword to strike in my name and seek high places in my kingdom.


“Jesus, Remember Me” #488 UMH


7) I accepted the cup of suffering and death for your sakes, but you scatter and deny and abandon me.

I sent the Spirit of truth to lead you,

but you close your hearts to guidance.


“Jesus, Remember Me” #488 UMH


8) I called you to go and bring forth fruit,

but you cast lots for my clothing.

I prayed that you all may be one,

but you continue to quarrel and divide.


“Jesus, Remember Me” #488 UMH


9) I grafted you into the tree of my chosen people Israel,

but you turned on them with persecution and mass murder. I made you joint heirs with them of my covenants, but you made them scapegoats for your own guilt.


“Jesus, Remember Me” #488 UMH


10) I came to you as the least of your brothers and sisters. I was hungry but you gave me no food,

thirsty but you gave me no drink.

I was a stranger but you did not welcome me,

naked but you did not clothe me,

sick and in prison but you did not visit me.


“Jesus, Remember Me” #488 UMH


A brief silence follows.
