messages of lent

Great hymns for Lent can be found in the "Redeemer" section of Lutheran Service Book, including this new text by Timothy Dudley-Smith, "Praise Be to Christ."

Praise be to Him who, Lord Most High,
The fulness of the God-head shares;
And yet our human nature bears,
Who came as man to bleed and die.
And from His cross there flows our peace
Who chose for us the path He trod,
That so might sins and sorrows cease
And all be reconciled to God.

Come quickly, Lord Jesus!
