Track Name: Psalm 51 Antiphon
Antiphon
Open my lips and my mouth will declare your praise
Open my lips and my mouth will declare your praise

Reading 1
1 Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; 
according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions. 2 Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. 3 For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me. 4 Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight; 
so you are right in your verdict and justified when you judge.
5 Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me.
6 Yet you desired faithfulness even in the womb; you taught me wisdom in that secret place. 7 Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. 


Antiphon
Open my lips and my mouth will declare your praise
Open my lips and my mouth will declare your praise

Reading 2
8 Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones you have crushed rejoice.
 9 Hide your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquity. 10 Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. 11 Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. 12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me. 13 Then I will teach transgressors your ways, so that sinners will turn back to you. 14 Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God, you who are God my Savior, and my tongue will sing of your righteousness. 



Antiphon
Open my lips and my mouth will declare your praise
Open my lips and my mouth will declare your praise

Reading 3
15 Open my lips, Lord, and my mouth will declare your praise.16 You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it; you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings.
17 My sacrifice, O God, is[b] a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise. 18 May it please you to prosper Zion, to build up the walls of Jerusalem. 19 Then you will delight in the sacrifices of the righteous, in burnt offerings offered whole; then bulls will be offered on your altar.

For the world’s salvation bled

Glorious life, and life immortal,
On this holy Easter morn.

By His mighty enterprise:
We with Him to life eternal
By His resurrection rise.

Track Name: Wilt Thou Forgive
Verse 1
Wilt Thou forgive that sin, by humans begun
Which was my sin, though it was done before?
Wilt Thou forgive that sin, through which I run,
And do run still, though still I do deplore?
When Thou hast done, Thou hast not done,
For I have more, for I have more.

Verse 2
Wilt Thou forgive that sin which I have won
Others to sin, and made my sin their door?
Wilt Thou Forgive that sin which I did shun
A year or two, but wallowed in a score?
When Thou hast done, Thou hast not done,
For I have more, for I have more

Verse 3
I have a sin of a fear, that when I have spun
My last thread, I will perish on the shore;
Swear by Thyself, that at my death Thy Son
Will shine, as He shines now and heretofore:
And, having done that, Thou hast done
I fear no more
I fear no more
Track Name: Jesus, Thank You

The mystery of the cross I cannot comprehend,
The agonies of Calvary.
You, the Perfect Holy One, crushed Your Son,
Drank the bitter cup reserved for me.

Jesus, thank You.
The Father’s wrath completely satisfied,
Jesus, thank You.
Once Your enemy, now seated at Your table,
Jesus, thank You.

By Your perfect sacrifice I’ve been brought near,
Your enemy made Your friend.
Pouring out the riches of Your glorious grace,
Your mercy and your kindness know no end.

Your blood has washed away my sin,
Jesus, thank You.
The Father’s wrath completely satisfied,
Jesus, thank You.
Once Your enemy, now seated at Your table,

Track Name: Psalm 1 Antiphon
Chorus
Happy are they
Who delight in the ways
Of Yahweh
Of Yahweh

SCRIPTURE READING
Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers. Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away. Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.

Chorus
Happy are they
Who delight in the ways
Of Yahweh
Of Yahweh

Track Name: God Is Love
God is love, let heav’n adore him
God is love let earth rejoice
Let creation sing before him
And exalt him with one voice

God who laid the earth’s foundation
God who spread the heavens above
God who breathes through all creation
God is love, eternal love
God is love, eternal love

God is love and love enfolds us
All the world in one embrace
With unfailing grasp God holds us
Every child of every race

And when human hearts are breaking
Under sorrow’s iron rod
Then we find that self same aching
Deep within the heart of God
Deep within the heart of God

God is love and though with blindness
Sin afflicts all human life
God’s eternal loving kindness
Guides us through our earthly strife

Sin and death and hell shall never
O’er us final triumph gain
God is love so love forever
O’er the universe shall reign
O’er the universe shall reign

Praise Him above all ye heavenly hosts
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

Lord of mercy and faithful love that never ends.
Called to be holy people, we are His alone.
Singing His praises now and ever more.
