 Ev’ryone needs compassion
 Love that's never failing
 Let mercy fall on me
 Ev’ryone needs forgiveness
 The kindness of a Saviour
 The hope of nations
  
 Saviour He can move the mountains
 My God is mighty to save
 He is mighty to save
 Forever Author of salvation
 He rose and conquered the grave
 Jesus conquered the grave
  
 So take me as You find me
 All my fears and failures
 Fill my life again
 I give my life to follow
 Ev’rything I believe in
 Now I surrender
  
 Shine your light and let the whole world see
 We're singing For the glory of the risen King
 Jesus
 Shine your light and let the whole world see
 We're singing For the glory of the risen King

 Alas and Did My Savior Bleed

  Alas and did my Savior bleed
 And did my Sov'reign die
 Would He devote that sacred head
 For sinners such as I
  
 Was it for crimes that I have done
 He suffered on the tree?
 Amazing pity grace unknown
 And love beyond degree!
 
 
 Well might the sun in darkness hide
 And shut His glories in
 When Christ great Redeemer died
 To bear his creatures’ sin
 
  Thus might I hide my blushing face
 While Calvary's cross appears
 Dissolve my heart in thankfulness
 And melt y eyes to tears
  
 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
 
 
 
 WE WORSHIP THROUGH PRAYER
  
 Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name,  
 thy kingdom come, thy will be done,  
 on earth as it is in heaven.  
  
 Give us this day our daily bread.  
 And forgive us our trespasses,  
 as we forgive those who trespass against us.  
  
 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  
  
 For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,  
 for ever and ever. Amen.

 WE HEAR GOD’S WORD
 Matthew 27:38-50 (NIV)
  Two rebels were crucified with him, one on his right and one on his left. Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads and saying, “You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days, save yourself! Come down from the cross, if you are the Son of God!” In the same way the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the elders mocked him. “He saved others,” they said, “but he can’t save himself! He’s the king of Israel! Let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe in him. He trusts in God. Let God rescue him now if he wants him, for he said, ‘I am the Son of God.’” In the same way the rebels who were crucified with him also heaped insults on him.
 From noon until three in the afternoon darkness came over all the land. About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”).
 When some of those standing there heard this, they said, “He’s calling Elijah.”
 Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge. He filled it with wine vinegar, put it on a staff, and offered it to Jesus to drink. The rest said, “Now leave him alone. Let’s see if Elijah comes to save him.”
 And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit.
        
 “Words from the Cross: Forsaken”

 Before I spoke a word You were singing over me
 You have been so so good to me
 Before I took a breath You breathed Your life in me
 You have been so so kind to me
 
 O the overwhelming never-ending reckless
 Love of God
 O it chases me down fights 'til I'm found
 Leaves the ninety-nine
 I couldn't earn it I don't deserve it
 Still You give Yourself away
 O the overwhelming never-ending reckless
 Love of God  
 
 When I was Your foe still Your love fought for me
 You have been so so good to me
 When I felt no worth You paid it all for me
 You have been so so kind to me
 
  There's no shadow You won't light up
 Mountain You won't climb up
 Coming after me
 There's no wall You won't kick down
 Lie You won't tear down
 Coming after me
