Grace United Church
March 29, 2013
Blessed be the name of the Lord Our God.
Who redeems us from sin and death.
For us and for the salvation of all,
Christ became obedient unto death, even death on a cross.
Blessed be the name of the Lord.
Hymn: VU# 135 “Beneath the Cross of Jesus”
God of passionate and vulnerable love,
whose body, broken on the cross
Rebukes us still:
Save us, hold us, and forgive us,
that you as victor and victim
might lead us from death to life;
Through Jesus, the Crucified.
