The Calkin Family

The journey to Good Friday is fraught with danger; 
The road to Jerusalem is difficult indeed. 
Be among us, as we enter this story together 
Help us to faithfully follow the rugged path that takes us home.

Opening Hymn: “How Firm a Foundation”

Psalter: Psalm 130

The Calkin Family

Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD.
Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications!
If you, O LORD, should mark iniquities, Lord, who could stand?
But there is forgiveness with you, so that you may be revered.
I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in his word I hope;
My soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning, more than those who watch for the morning.
O Israel, hope in the LORD! For with the LORD there is steadfast love, and with him is great power to redeem.
It is he who will redeem Israel from all its iniquities.

Old Testament Reading: Isaiah 43: 16-21

Anthem: “Come Away to the Skies”

Houston Chamber Choir

Come away to the skies, 
my beloved, arise
and rejoice in the day thou wast born.
On this festival day,
come exulting away,
and with singing to Zion return.
We have laid up our love and our treasure above,
Though our bodies continue below.
The redeemed of the Lord will remember His Word,
And with singing to paradise go.

Hallelujah we sing,
to the heaven’s high King,
and his rapturous praises repeat:
to the Lamb that was slain,
hallelujah again,
sing, all heaven, and fall at his feet.

Hymn: “Standing on the Promises”

Standing on the promises of Christ my king,
through eternal ages let his praises ring;
glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,
standing on the promises of God.

Standing, standing, 
standing on the promises of God my Savior;
standing, standing,
I’m standing on the promises of God.

Standing on the promises that cannot fail,
when the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,
by the living Word of God I shall prevail,
standing on the promises of God. [Refrain]

Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,
bound to him eternally by love’s strong cord,
overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword,
standing on the promises of God. [Refrain]

Standing on the promises I cannot fall,
listening every moment to the Spirit’s call,
resting in my Savior as my all in all,
standing on the promises of God. [Refrain]
