The Sermon……………………………………………………. Philippians 2:5-11

5 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, 6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9 Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Hymn 160 “All Glory, Laud, and Honor”

1 All glory, laud, and honor  To Thee, Redeemer, King,
To whom the lips of children  Made sweet hosannas ring.
Thou art the King of Israel,  Thou David’s royal Son,
Who in the Lord’s name comest,  The King and Blessed One.

2 All glory, laud, and honor  To Thee, Redeemer, King,
To whom the lips of children  Made sweet hosannas ring.
The company of angels  Is praising Thee on high,
And mortal men and all things  Created make reply.

3 All glory, laud, and honor  To Thee, Redeemer, King,
To whom the lips of children  Made sweet hosannas ring.
The people of the Hebrews
With psalms before Thee went;
Our praise and prayer and anthems
Before Thee we present.

4 All glory, laud, and honor  To Thee, Redeemer, King,
To whom the lips of children  Made sweet hosannas ring.
To Thee, before Thy Passion,
They sang their hymns of praise;
To Thee, now high exalted,
Our melody we raise.

5 All glory, laud, and honor  To Thee, Redeemer, King,
To whom the lips of children  Made sweet hosannas ring.
Thou didst accept their praises;
Accept the prayers we bring,
Who in all good delightest,
Thou good and gracious King.

The Invocation And Palm Sunday Confessional Prayer

C: On this “Sunday of the Palms” we experience a strange mixture of triumph and tragedy. In triumph, O Lord and King, You approached Jerusalem in a royal procession, hailed by the crowds with their Hosannas and Hallelujahs. Yet in lowliness You came – riding on a donkey, leading a procession to Jerusalem and the cross, coming not to be served but to serve and to give Your life a ransom for many. As we begin another Holy Week, we remember why You came, to take away our sins. As your subjects we bow before you in humility and repentance. In faith, we hail You as our Sin-Deliverer, our Savior, Who through death and hell prevailed in victory. Have mercy on us and forgive us. “Hosanna!” – Save us, We pray You! Receive us into Your Kingdom; Rule in our hearts and lives and assure us of victory over all our enemies.

The Absolution

Sing Hymn 339 “All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name” (V 3 & 5)

3 Ye seed of Israel’s chosen race,  Ye ransomed from the fall,
Hail Him who saves you by His grace  And crown Him Lord of all.
Hail Him who saves you by His grace  And crown Him Lord of all.

5 Sinners, whose love can ne’er forget  The wormwood and the gall,
Go, spread your trophies at His feet  And crown Him Lord of all.
Go, spread your trophies at His feet  And crown Him Lord of all.

The Old Testament Scripture Reading – Zechariah 9:9-10

The Gospel Reading- Matthew 21:1-9

The Apostles Creed (Page 12 in Hymnal)

I believe in God the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth; And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried; He descended into hell; The third day he rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father almighty; From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost, the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting. Amen.

“Create In Me”

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me,
Cast me not away from Thy presence; and take not Thy Holy Spirit from me.
Restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation; and uphold me with Thy free spirit. Amen.

Hymn 222 “Look, Ye Saints, the Sight Is Glorious”

1 Look, ye saints, the sight is glorious,
See the Man of sorrows now!
From the fight returned victorious,
Ev’ry knee to Him shall bow.
Crown Him! Crown Him!
Crowns become the Victor’s brow.

2 Crown the Savior! Angels, crown Him!  Rich the trophies Jesus brings;
On the seat of pow’r enthrone Him  While the vault of heaven rings.
Crown Him! Crown Him!  Crown the Savior King of kings.

3 Sinners in derision crowned Him,  Mocking thus the Savior’s claim;
Saints and angels crowd around Him,  Own His title, praise His name.
Crown Him! Crown Him!  Spread abroad the Victor’s fame.

4 Hark, those bursts of acclamation!  Hark, those loud triumphant chords!
Jesus takes the highest station;  Oh, what joy the sight affords!
Crown Him! Crown Him!  King of kings and Lord of lords!

Closing Hymn 162 – “Ride On, Ride On, in Majesty”

1 Ride on, ride on, in majesty!  Hark! all the tribes hosanna cry.
O Savior meek, pursue Thy road,
With palms and scattered garments strowed.

2 Ride on, ride on, in majesty!  In lowly pomp ride on to die.
O Christ, Thy triumphs now begin  O’er captive death and conquered sin.

3 Ride on, ride on, in majesty!  The angel armies of the sky
Look down with sad and wond’ring eyes  To see th’approaching Sacrifice.

4 Ride on, ride on, in majesty!  Thy last and fiercest strife is nigh;
The Father on His sapphire throne  Expects His own anointed Son.

5 Ride on, ride on, in majesty!  In lowly pomp ride on to die.
Bow Thy meek head to mortal pain,
Then take, O Christ, Thy power and reign.
