Luke 23:44–46 (Listen)

The Death of Jesus

44 It was now about the sixth hour,1 and there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour,2 45 while the sun’s light failed. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. 46 Then Jesus, calling out with a loud voice, said, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!” And having said this he breathed his last.

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

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!
