JOY — Love Demands All

All these presentations, all these hours of music since Ash Wednesday have led us to this moment—at the foot of the cross.

JOY — Wondrous Love

Our music today is poignant—have the tissues handy. But it is necessary for us to hear. And remember: the victory has already been won!

JOY — Sweet Hosannas

“Blessed is He that comes in the name of the Lord.” Really? Because in mere days they’ll be shouting “Crucify Him!” 

JOY — Blood Shed for Me

Just as I am, without one plea, but that Thy blood was shed for me.

JOY — Peace at the Cross

Our focus today: the peace that our great Savior and divine Redeemer can bring into our lives.
