Friday in the Fifth Week of Lent
Download this episode (mp3).
This child through David's city
shall ride in triumph by;
the palm shall strew its branches,
and every stone shall cry. (Hymn 104)
And did not Jesus sing a song that night / when utmost evil strove against the light (Hymn 420)
Sing, my tongue, the glorious battle, of the mighty conflict sing (Hymn 165/166)
At the Lamb’s high feast we sing (Hymn 174)
“Soon shall each raptured tongue
his endless praise proclaim,
and sing in sweeter notes the song
of Moses and the Lamb” (Hymn 181)
Hymn numbers, when given, refer to the Episcopal Hymnal 1982. But most hymns can be found in many different hymnals.
O Lord, you relieve our necessity out of the abundance of your great riches: Grant that we may accept with joy the salvation you bestow, and manifest it to all the world by the quality of our lives; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
Proper collects for the weekdays of Lent are from Lesser Feasts and Fasts 2006.
