Luke 23:27–31 (Listen)

27 And there followed him a great multitude of the people and of women who were mourning and lamenting for him. 28 But turning to them Jesus said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. 29 For behold, the days are coming when they will say, ‘Blessed are the barren and the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed!’ 30 Then they will begin to say to the mountains, ‘Fall on us,’ and to the hills, ‘Cover us.’ 31 For if they do these things when the wood is green, what will happen when it is dry?”


Hymn: LSB 672, st. 1,3 :
Jerusalem the Golden

1. Jerusalem the golden,
With milk and honey blest–
The promise of salvation,
The place of peace and rest–
We know not, oh, we know not
What joys await us there;
The radiancy of glory,
The bliss beyond compare!

3. Around the throne of David,
The saints, from care released,
Raise loud their songs of triumph
To celebrate the feast.
They sing to Christ their leader,
Who conquered in the fight,
Who won for them forever
Their gleaming robes of white.
