Hymn 105 (stanza 7), O Sacred Head, Now Wounded
You are invited to drive a nail into the cross—not to crucify Jesus again. His work of salvation is done! Do it to remember and rejoice that your sins have been put upon Jesus. Leave behind your nail in the cross, and remember that God sees your sin no more. You are forgiven! The empty cross reminds us of Jesus' victory. God accepted His payment for our sin. Jesus will never die again. We will follow him to heaven. What makes Good Friday good is that, the next time we worship, it will be Easter and we will celebrate the resurrection of our Savior that guarantees our resurrection.
The choir sings, Wondrous Love (arranged by Richard DeMone).
Hymn 718, Rest, O Christ, From All Your Labor
