SENTENCES AND COLLECTS

P: He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised

for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon Him,

C: and with His stripes we are healed.

P: Almighty God, graciously behold this Your family, for

whom our Lord Jesus Christ was willing to be betrayed, to be given into the hands of sinners, and to suffer death on the cross;

C: who now lives and reigns with You and the Holy

Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

P:We all, like sheep, have gone astray;

C: and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

P: Almighty and most merciful God, give us grace so to

contemplate the Passion of our Lord

C: that we may find in it the forgiveness of our sins;

through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord. Amen.

COLLECTS ON THE SEVEN WORDS

THE FIRST WORD:

"Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do"

Luke 23:34

P: Lord Jesus Christ, our only Mediator and Advocate, who

by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God was taken, and by the hand of wicked men was crucified and slain, and did make intercession for the transgressors, we pray Thee, grant unto us all the blessed assurance that there is now no condemnation to them which are in Thee,

C: and that, if any man sin, we have an Advocate with

the Father in Thee, the Righteous, whose blood speaks better things than Abel's blood, who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

THE SECOND WORD:

"Today shalt thou be with Me in Paradise"

(Luke 23:43

P: Lord Jesus Christ, Thou merciful King and Prince of

Peace, who didst veil Thy divine glory and was robed in humility, crowned with thorns, nailed upon the tree of shame, and numbered with the transgressors, we thank Thee that Thou hast remembered us in our condemnation and hast translated us into Thy Kingdom of Grace.

C: We pray Thee, rule in our hearts and lives with the

scepter of Thy Word, and when life's brief day is ended, take us with Thee into Paradise, who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

THE THIRD WORD:

"Woman, behold thy son!" - "Behold thy mother!"

John 19:26, 27

P: O Compassionate Lord Jesus Christ, we thank Thee for Thy

perfect obedience which Thou did render for us even to the death of the cross. We pray Thee, grant us Thy Holy Spirit, that He may write Thy holy Law upon our hearts, so that, following Thy example of filial love and obedience, we may honor and serve our parents, and, from the least to the greatest, may learn obedience and walk in Thy footsteps.

C: And let Thy strength be made perfect in our weakness,

who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

THE FOURTH WORD:

"My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?"

Matthew 27:46

P: Lord Jesus Christ, Thou Author and Finisher of our faith, who

didst tread the winepress of God's wrath alone and wast made a curse for us on the accursed tree, being forsaken of God, we pray Thee, grant that our faith in Thee may never know doubt or change. Strengthen us in the sure knowledge and confidence that nothing shall separate us from the love of God in Thee and that, though Thy Father hide His face from us in a little moment of wrath,

C: we may never despair of His loving-kindness, for the

sake of Thy bitter agony, who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

THE FIFTH WORD:

"I thirst!"

John 19:28

P: O Lord Jesus Christ, Thou Redeemer of the world, who on

the cross didst endure the pains and anguish of body and soul to accomplish all things for our redemption and in Thy cry "I thirst!" didst reveal Thy fervent desire and zeal to draw all men unto Thyself,

C: grant that the souls of men everywhere may hear Thy

gracious Gospel and drink of the waters of life and be satisfied, who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

THE SIXTH WORD:

"It is finished!"

John 19:30

P: Lord Jesus, who on the cross didst cry out: "It is finished!" we

thank Thee that Thou didst complete the work which Thy Father gave Thee to do: Thou didst fulfill the Law of God for us; Thou didst bear its curse in our stead; Thou didst reconcile all men to God.

C: Grant that we may with our whole heart believe this and

that we may never rely on any work or merit of our own, but always trust in Thy finished work on Calvary, who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

THE SEVENTH WORD:

"Father, into Thy hands I commend My spirit"

Luke 23:46

P: Lord Jesus Christ, who in Thy dying moment didst

commend Thy soul into Thy Father's hands, thereby assuring us that Thou didst finish the work of our redemption and that Thy Father is well pleased in Thee, we pray Thee,

C: grant us by Thy Holy Spirit such confidence in Thy

redemption that, washed of our sin in Thy blood, we, too, in our dying hour may confidently commend our soul into the Father's hand, trusting wholly in Thy merits, who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

The HYMN, "O O Sacred Head, Now Wounded," LSB #450, is sung.
