The item "Psalm 22" from our Good Friday Service of Prayer and Reflection is available to listen and download here.TMB



God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
Why are you so far from hearing my plea?
God, my God, I cry to you by day,
And by night the same.

All who see me, mock me, shake their heads and pass me by,
"Let God deliver him, if he is his delight"
Be not far from me for trouble is near.
There is none to relieve.

You are holy
Enthroned on your people's praise.
In you we have trusted,
And we won't be put to shame.

Poured out like water, as a perfect sacrifice.
Your body was broken, and blood flowed from your side.
Rejected and despised, you gave up your last breath;
Laid in the dust of death.

You took the guilt, though you were innocent.
Pierced were your hands; pierced were your feet.
Cursed and mocked, with a crown of thorns to wear,
And my sinfulness to bear.

You are holy.
Enthroned on your people's praise.
In you we have trusted,
And we won't be put to shame.

But you, O God, be not far from me.
You, O my Strength, you hasten to my plea.
Deliver me from their power and the sword.
You have answered, Lord.

Our praise shall be of you, in the great assembly.
We will praise your name, for all eternity.
All the ends of the world shall remember what you've done,
And bow before the Son.
