All Praise to God, Who Reigns Above (Trinity Hymnal #4)
Focus this week: Abraham Christensen
Alas and Did my Savior Bleed (HMA #3)
Alas, and did my Savior bleed
And did my Sovereign die?
Would He devote that sacred head
For such a worm as I?
Was it for sins that I had done
He groaned upon the tree?
Amazing pity, grace unknown
And love beyond degree
My God, why would You shed Your blood
So pure and undefiled
To make a sinful one like me
Your chosen, precious child?
Well might the sun in darkness hide
And shut His glories in
When Christ, the mighty Maker, died
For man, the creature’s, sin
Thus might I hide my blushing face
While His dear cross appears
Dissolve my heart in thankfulness
And melt my eyes to tears
Blessed Jesus, at Your Word (Trinity Hymnal #303)
The Lord’s Table
Christ Our Righteousness
Day by Day, Trinity Hymnal #676
