By Grace I’m Saved

  • 1) By grace I’m saved, grace free and boundless; my soul, believe and doubt it not.
  • Why stagger at this
  • word of promise?

Has Scripture ever falsehood taught? No! Then this word must true remain: By grace you too will life obtain.


2) By grace! None dare lay claim to merit; our works and conduct have no worth. God in His love sent our Redeemer,


Christ Jesus, to this sinful earth; His death did for our sins atone, and we are saved by grace alone.


3) By grace God’s Son, our only Savior, came down to earth to bear our sin. Was it because of your own merit that Jesus died your soul to win?


4) By grace! This ground of faith is certain; as long as God is true, it stands. What saints have penned by inspiration,


What in His Word our God commands, our faith in what our God has done depends on grace—grace through His Son.


5) By grace to timid hearts that tremble, in tribulation’s furnace tried, by grace, in spite of fear and trouble,


The Father’s heart is open wide. Where could I help and strength secure if grace were not my

  • anchor sure?

6) By grace! On this I’ll rest when dying; in Jesus’ promise I rejoice; for though I know my

  • heart’s condition,

I also know my Savior’s voice. My heart is glad, all grief has flown since I am saved by grace alone.


Confession and Absolution

  • P: In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit.
  • C: Amen.

P: Since we are gathered to hear God’s Word, call upon Him in prayer and praise, and receive the body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ in the fellowship of this altar,


let us first consider our unworthiness and confess before God and one another that we have sinned in thought, word, and deed, and that we cannot free ourselves from our

  • sinful condition.

Together as His people let us take refuge in the infinite mercy of God, our heavenly Father, seeking His grace for the sake of Christ, and saying: God, be merciful to me, a sinner.


C: Almighty God, have mercy upon us, forgive us our sins, and lead us to everlasting life. Amen.

  • P: Almighty God in His mercy has given His Son to die for you and for His sake forgives you
  • all your sins.

As a called and ordained servant of Christ, and by His authority, I therefore forgive you all your sins in the name of the Father and of the + Son and of

  • the Holy Spirit.
  • C: Amen.

Lenten Litany

  • P:The word of the cross is a puzzle, a mystery and a stumbling black. Yet in the weakness and shame of the cross God displayed his mighty power and saved us.

Sung response

  • The Father’s purpose
  • on the cross our Savior
  • has fulfilled; the love revealed, the promise
  • kept in everything
  • God willed.

P: This is the mystery of

  • the cross; that the mighty
  • love and power of God are
  • revealed in weakness.
  • C: In the humility and shame of the cross, God’s love for the world was made known.

P: For the word of the cross

  • is folly to those who
  • are perishing, but to us
  • who are being saved
  • it is the power of God.
  • C: Where is the one who is wise? Where is the scribe?

Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?

  • P: For since, in the wisdom of
  • God, the world did not know God
  • through wisdom, it pleased God
  • through the folly of what we preach
  • to save those who believe.

C: For the Jews

  • demand signs and
  • Greeks seek wisdom, but
  • we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews
  • and folly to Gentiles.

P: But to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the

  • wisdom of God.
  • C: For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

P: The word of the cross is a word of God's saving strength made perfect in the weakness of a shameful death.

  • C: The word of the cross is the word of God’s love and grace for sinners.

P: He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”

  • C: There I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Sung response

  • When we with Christ his weakness share, His power in us is shown. The all-sufficient grace revealed that claims us as his own.

Prayer of the Day

  • P: The Lord be with you.
  • C: And also with you.
  • P: Let us pray.

Almighty God, by Your great goodness mercifully look upon Your people that we may be governed and preserved evermore in body and soul;


through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

  • C: Amen

The hand of the LORD was upon me, and he brought me out in the Spirit of the LORD and set me down in the middle of the valley; it was full of bones.


And he led me around among them, and behold, there were very many on the surface of the valley, and behold, they were very dry. And I answered, “O Lord GOD, you know.”


Then he said to me, “Prophesy over these bones, and say to them, O dry bones, hear the word of the LORD. Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones: Behold, I will cause breath to enter you, and you shall live.


And I will lay sinews upon you, and will cause flesh to come upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and you shall live, and you shall know that I am the LORD.” So I prophesied as I was commanded.


And as I prophesied, there was a sound, and behold, a rattling, and the bones came together, bone to its bone. And I looked, and behold, there were sinews on them, and flesh had come upon them, and skin had covered them.


But there was no breath in them. Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, Thus says the Lord GOD: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.”


So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived and stood on their feet, an exceedingly great army. Then he said to me, “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel.


Behold, they say, ‘Our bones are dried up, and our hope is lost; we are indeed cut off.’ Therefore prophesy, and say to them, Thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I will open your graves and raise you from your graves, O my people.


And I will bring you into the land of Israel. And you shall know that I am the LORD, when I open your graves, and raise you from your graves, O my people. And I will put my Spirit within you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land.


P: This is the Word of

  • the Lord.
  • C: Thanks be to God.

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do.


By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.


For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.


For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God's law; indeed, it cannot. Those who are in the flesh cannot please God. You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you.


Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness.


If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.


P: This is the Word of

  • the Lord.
  • C: Thanks be to God.

The Lamb

  • The Lamb, the Lamb,
  • one perfect final offering.
  • The Lamb, the Lamb, let
  • earth join heav’n His
  • praise to sing.

P: Now when Jesus came, he found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb four days. Bethany was near Jerusalem, about two miles off,


and many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary to console them concerning their brother. So when Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went and met him, but Mary remained seated in the house.


Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. But even now I know that whatever you ask from God, God will give you.”


Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” Martha said to him, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection on the last day.”


Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?”


She said to him, “Yes, Lord; I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who is coming into the world.” When she had said this, she went and called her sister Mary, saying in private, “The Teacher is here and is calling for you.”


Then Jesus, deeply moved again, came to the tomb. It was a cave, and a stone lay against it. Jesus said, “Take away the stone.”


Martha, the sister of the dead man, said to him, “Lord, by this time there will be an odor, for he has been dead four days.”


Jesus said to her, “Did I not tell you that if you believed you would see the glory of God?” So they took away the stone. And Jesus lifted up his eyes and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me.


I knew that you always hear me, but I said this on account of the people standing around, that they may believe that you sent me.” When he had said these things, he cried out with a loud voice,


“Lazarus, come out.” The man who had died came out, his hands and feet bound with linen strips, and his face wrapped with a cloth.


Jesus said to them, “Unbind him, and let him go.” Many of the Jews therefore, who had come with Mary and had seen what he did, believed in him,


P: This is the Gospel of

  • the Lord.
  • C: Praise to You, O Christ.

Nicene Creed

  • I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of His Father before all worlds, God of God,

  • Light of Light,

very God of very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made;


who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate.


He suffered and was buried. And the third day He rose again according to the Scriptures and ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of the Father.


And He will come again to judge both the living and the dead, whose kingdom will have no end. And I believe in the Holy Spirit,


the Lord and giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified, who spoke by the prophets.


And I believe in one holy Christian and apostolic Church, I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins, and I look for the resurrection of the dead and the life + of the world to come. Amen.


Chief of Sinners Though I Be

  • 1) Chief of sinners though I be, Jesus shed His blood for me,

died that I might live on high, lives that I might never die. As the branch is to the vine, I am His and He is mine.


2) Oh, the height of Jess’ love, higher than the heav’ns above, deeper than the depths of sea, lasting as eternity!


3) Only Jesus can impart balm to heal the wounded heart, peace that flows from sin forgiv’n,





  • P: The Lord be with you.
  • C:And also with you.
  • P: Lift up your hearts.
  • C:We lift them to the Lord.

P: Let us give thanks to

  • the Lord our God.
  • C: It is right to give Him thanks and praise.

P: It is truly good, right, and salutary that we should at all times and in all places give thanks to You, O Lord, holy Father, almighty and everlasting God, for the countless blessings You so freely bestow on us and all creation.


Above all, we give thanks for Your boundless love shown to us when You sent Your only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ, into our flesh and laid on Him our sin,


giving Him into death that we might not die eternally. Because He is now risen from the dead and lives and reigns to all eternity, all who believe in Him will overcome sin and death and will rise again to new life.


Therefore with angels and archangels and with all the company of heaven we laud and magnify Your glorious name, evermore praising You and saying:



  • Holy, holy, holy Lord God of sabaoth adored; heav’n and earth with full acclaim shout the glory of Your name.

Sing hosanna in the highest, sing hosanna to the Lord; truly blest is

  • He who comes in the
  • name of the Lord!

Lord’s Prayer

  • Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name,
  • Thy kingdom come, Thy
  • will be done on earth as
  • it is in heaven;

give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forge those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation,


but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.


The Words of Our Lord

  • P:Our Lord Jesus Christ, on the night when He was betrayed, took bread, and when He had given thanks,

He broke it and gave it to the disciples and said: “Take, eat; this is My + body, which is given

  • for you. This do in remembrance of Me.”

In the same way also He took the cup after supper, and when He had given thanks, He gave it to them, saying: “Drink of it,

  • all of you;

this cup is the new testament in My + blood, which is shed for you for the forgiveness of sins. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”


Pax Domini

  • P: The peace of the Lord be with you always.
  • C: Amen.

Agnus Dei

  • 1) O Jesus Christ, true Lamb of God, You take the sin of the world away; O Jesus Christ, true Lamb of God, have mercy on us, Lord, we pray.

2) O Jesus Christ, true Lamb of God, You taie the sin of the world away; have mercy on us, Jesus Christ, and grant us peace, O Lord, we pray.


The Gifts Christ Freely Gives

  • 1) The gifts Christ freely gives He gives to you and me to be His Church, His bride, His chosen, saved and free!

Saints blest with these rich gifts are children who proclaim that they were won by Christ and cling to His strong name.


2) The gifts flow from the font where He calls us His own; new life He gives that makes us His and His alone.


Here He forgives our sins with water and His Word; the triune God Himself gives pow’r to call Him Lord.


3) The gifts of grace and peace from absolution flow; the pastor's words are Christ’s for us to trust and know.


Forgiveness that we need is granted to us there; the Lord of mercy sends us forth in His blest care.


4) The gifts are there each day the holy Word is read; God’s children listen, hear, receive, and they are fed.


Christ fills them with Himself, blest words that give them life, restoring and refreshing them for his world’s strife.


5) The gifts are in the feast, gifts far more than we see; beneath the bread and wine is food from Calvary.


His means of grace for us are gifts He loves to give; all thanks and praise for His great love by which we live!


Jesus Comes Today With Healing

  • 1) Jesus comes today with healing, knowing at my door, appealing, off’ring pardon, grace, and peace.

He Himself makes preparation, and I hear His invitation: “Come and taste the blessed feast.”


gives the bread of life, once broken, and the cup, the precious token of His sacred covenant.


On my tongue His pledge receiving, I accept His grace, believing that I taste His love divine.


5) Let me praise God’s boundless favor, whose own feast of love I savor, bidden by His gracious call.


Wedding garments He provides me, with a robe of white He hides me, fits me for the royal hall.


O Living Bread From Heaven

  • 1) O living Bread from heaven, how well You feed Your guest! The gifts that You have given have filled my heart with rest.

Oh, wondrous food of blessing, oh, cup that heals our woes! My heart, this gift possessing, with praises overflows.


2) My Lord, You here have led me to this most holy place and with Yourself have fed me the treasures of Your grace;


for You have freely given what earth could never buy, the bread of life from heaven, that now I shall not die.


3) You gave me all I wanted; this food can death destroy. And You have freely granted the cup of endless joy.


My Lord, I do not merit the favor You have shown, and all my soul and spirit bow down before Your throne.


4) Lord, grant me then, thus strengthened with heav’nly food, while here my course on earth is lengthened, to serve with holy fear.


And when You call my spirit to leave this world below, I enter, through Your merit, where joys unmingled flow.


Nunc Dimittis

  • 1) O Lord, now let Your servant depart in heavn’ly peace, for I have seen the glory of Your redeeming grace:

For as in the beginning, is now, shall ever be, God’s triune name resounding through all eternity.


Post-Communion Prayer

  • P: Let us pray. Gracious God, our heavenly Father, You have given us a foretaste of the feast to come in the Holy Supper of Your Son’s body and blood.

Keep us firm in the true faith throughout our days of pilgrimage that, on the day of His coming, we may, together with all Your saints,


celebrate the marriage feast of the Lamb in His kingdom which has no end; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.



  • P: Let us bless the Lord.
  • C: Thanks be to God.
  • P: The Lord bless you
  • and keep you.

The Lord make His

  • face shine on you and be gracious to you. The Lord look upon you with favor and + give you peace.
  • C: Amen.

By Grace We Have Been Saved

  • 1) By grace we have been saved through faith and not by keeping law. God’s saints believed by what they heard and not by what they saw.

2) For all have sinned and fallen short. God’s plan, not one obeyed. Christ has for all fulfilled the law. Believe, confess, be saved.


3) God gave to earth a perfect love through Jesus on the cross. While we were foes, Christ died for us. We gained by God’s own loss.


4) We know the wage of sin is death; thank God, we shall revive. For just as Jesus rose again, we too are made alive.


5) Set free, we now have peace with God. Salvation is secured. How beautiful the feet of those who share this gospel word.
