Matthew 27:46 (Listen)

46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (ESV)

Hymn : TLH 172 st. 8,10: O Sacred Head Now Wounded link

8. What language shall I borrow 
To thank Thee, dearest Friend, 
For this, Thy dying sorrow, 
Thy pity without end? 
Oh, make me thine forever! 
And should I fainting be, 
Lord, let me never, never, 
Outlive my love for Thee. 

10. Be Thou my Consolation, 
My Shield when I must die; 
Remind me of Thy Passion 
When my last hour draws nigh. 
Mine eyes shall then behold Thee, 
Upon Thy cross shall dwell, 
My heart by faith enfold Thee. 
Who dieth thus dies well!
