Music for Good Friday-Tre Ore

Music During the Tre Ore

Choral Meditation: Behold, the Lamb of God –Paul Bouman (1918-2019)

Behold, the Lamb of God, that taketh away the sin of the world.

In perfect love He dies; For me He dies, for me; O all-atoning Sacrifice, I cling by faith to Thee.

 

Choral Meditation: O Christ, Thou Lamb of God –Carl Schalk (1929-2021)

O Christ, Thou Lamb of God, that takest away the sin of the world, have mercy upon us.

O Christ, Thou Lamb of God, that takest away the sin of the world, have mercy upon us.

O Christ, Thou Lamb of God, that takest away the sin of the world, grant us Thy peace. Amen.

 

Choral Response: Responsory for Passiontide –Healey Willan (1880-1968)

He was brought as a Lamb to the slaughter: He was oppressed and He was afflicted: yet He opened not His mouth.

He was delivered up to death: that He might quicken His people.

At Salem also is His tabernacle: and His dwelling place in Zion.

He was delivered up to death: that He might quicken His people.

 

Choral Music at the Distribution: Ave Verum Corpus –Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)

Ave verum corpus, natum de Maria Virgine,                     Hail, true Body, born of the Virgin Mary,

vere passum, immolatum in cruce pro homine,                 having truly suffered, sacrificed on the cross for men,

cujus latus perforatum unda fluxit et sanguine:               from whose pierced side water and blood flowed:

esto nobis praegustatum in mortis examine.                      Be  for us a foretaste in the trial of death.

 

Choral Meditation: O Sinner, Come Thy Sin to Mourn (BWV 402) –Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)

O sinner, come thy sin to mourn, So vast and vile that it has borne Christ to this vale of anguish;

Son of a Virgin, sweet and mild, In poverty the Holy Child, Thy Substitute, did languish;

Behold, with faith, God’s only Son! Come nigh and see what Love has done, To save thee from damnation;

The Father cast on Him thy guilt, For thee His precious blood was spilt, To bless thee with salvation.

 

O meditate, how painfully, the Lamb of God, on Calvary Has died for thy transgressions;

How dreary was that awful night, Of agony, how great the fight, Of His most wondrous Passion!

O Son of God, eternal Word, Divine Redeemer, dearest Lord We marvel at Thy suffering,

For Thy disgrace, and pain, and shame, We’ll ever magnify Thy name, And praise Thy glorious offering.

 

Organ Meditations (as needed)

O Sinner, Come Thy Sin to Mourn (O Mensch, bewein dein Sünde gross) (BWV 622) –Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)

Our Blessed Savior Seven Times Spoke (Da Jesus an dem Kreuze stund) (BWV 621) –Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)

As Jesus hung on the cross and His body was wounded with such bitter pain,

consider in your heart the seven words that He spoke there.
