John 18:1-19:42

“John 18:1-19:42 (Easy to Read Version)” by Mark Beingessner.

Loving Divine Family,

What wondrous love is this, O my soul, that caused the LORD of Bliss to bear the dreadful curse for my soul? The multitudes who sang his praises now sing a different song. But the wind and waves still know his name, still sing their Creator’s praises.

Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world. Have mercy on us. Thank you for reminding us that we are already forgiven; we are more blessed than broken. We hear you ask, “who are you looking for?” Thank you for creating the space, so we can hear you. We come looking for the Son of God; we come looking for love and forgiveness.

I will sing creation’s song to you today, Lamb of God, and thank you for…

We believe this is not the end, but only the beginning! When from death we are free, we will still sing and be joyful; for the rest of our days on this earth and into eternity are in your presence, our future is in your hands. 

With joy we praise you!


Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
