Have a Blessed Lords Day Pals

Man of Sorrows! what a name
For the Son of God, who came
Ruined sinners to reclaim.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Bearing shame and scoffing rude,
In my place condemned He stood;
Sealed my pardon with His blood.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Guilty, vile, and helpless we;
Spotless Lamb of God was He;
“Full atonement!” can it be?
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Lifted up was He to die;
“It is finished!” was His cry;
Now in Heav’n exalted high.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

When He comes, our glorious King,
All His ransomed home to bring,
Then anew His song we’ll sing:
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Last Sunday in Lent.
In a week we have Norwegian "Palm Sunday", in remembrance of Christ riding in to Jerusalem on a donkey.
The schools start Easter Holiday next Friday.
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday the shops are open. Bread Breake Thursday, Long Friday, First and Second Easter Day also are holidays.

A beautiful poem to remind us of the crucial holiday we have in front of us.
We still are allowed to celebrate the ancient way.
It is not evident that this will continue.
Oh, that we don't take our first born rights for granted.

Lovely song. This morning in church we sang the old hymn "Jesus keep me near the Cross"
