O Sacred Head Now Wounded....

This is one of my very favorite hymns and brings me to tears every single time I hear it, but especially on this Good Friday. To me, the two most striking lines:
"Mine, mine was the transgression but thine the deadly pain."

"Oh, let me never, never outlive my love for thee."


I hope today won't be just another regular day of housework, laundry, shopping, meetings, phone conferences... but that you will take a moment to remember the amazing price paid for YOU on this day. After all, without today and SUNDAY, nothing else in life really matters!

That song speaks to me deeply, too. We'll be singing it tonight (during our tenebrae service that just doesn't get truly dark in Alaska this time of year). I love to sing the alto. :)
