The Angels

SHEPHERD 1
Thou Hope and Deliverer promised of old,
For whom we have waited e’er long,
SHEPHERD 2
(as Storyteller)
And there were in the same country
shepherds abiding in the field, keeping
watch over their flock by night.
SHEPHERD 1 / SHEPHERD BOY
O come and redeem us from slavery’s yoke,
SHEPHERD BOY
And deliver thy people…
What is it?
SHEPHERD 2
(as Storyteller)
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon
us, and the glory of the Lord shone
round about us:
SHEPHERD BOY
(as Storyteller)
And we were sore afraid.
ANGEL GABRIEL
Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good
tidings of great joy, which shall be to
all people. For unto you is born this
day in the city of David a Savior, which
is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a
sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe
wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
ANGELS
Israel rejoice! Sing all creation!
Born is the Savior, with life in his wings!
Raise up your voice! Hail thy Salvation!
Open your hearts and bid welcome your King!
Sing we Gloria! Glory to the Lord!
Gloria! Glory for the light he doth bring!
O sing Gloria! Gloria! Gloria!

The Manger of Bethlehem

SHEPHERD BOY
There’s a song in the air,
There’s a star in the sky,
There’s a mother’s soft prayer,
And a baby’s low cry.
And the star rains its fire,
While the Beautiful sing.
For the manger of Bethlehem
Cradles a King!
YOUNG MARY
(as Storyteller)
And the shepherds came with haste, to
find the newborn babe.
CHOIR (V.O.)
There’s a tumult of joy
At the wonderful birth,
For the virgin’s sweet boy
Is the Lord of the Earth!
YOUNG MARY / JOSEPH
And the star rains its fire,
While the Beautiful sing.
YOUNG MARY / CHOIR
For the manger of Bethlehem
Cradles a King!
CHOIR (V.O.)
Ah!
SHEPHERD BOY
And we look to the star
While the beautiful sing
To the manger of Bethlehem.
YOUNG MARY
For unto us a child is born, unto us a
son is given: and his name shall be
called Wonderful, Counselor, the mighty
God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.
ANGELS
We rejoice in the Light,
And we echo the song
Coming down through the night
From the heavenly throng!
YOUNG MARY / JOSEPH
And the star rains its fire
While the Beautiful sing.
SHEPHERD BOY
For the manger of Bethlehem
Cradles a King.

Peter Prays

PETER
I wander through the still of night,
When solitude is ev’rywhere,
Alone, beneath the starry light,
And yet I know that God is there.
I kneel upon the grass and pray;
An answer comes without a voice,
It takes my burden all away
And bids my aching heart to sing:
Rejoice.
Rejoice!

Calling of the Apostles

ANDREW
(as Storyteller)
One which had heard John the Baptist
speak, and followed him, was Andrew, the brother of Peter.
PETER
(to ANDREW)
Let’s pack this up and move on from disaster.
ANDREW
Now Jesus had entered into a ship, which
belonged to Peter, and had taught the
people out of the ship.
PETER
I’ll fetch James and John and the work will go faster.
JESUS
Peter…
PETER
Master.
JESUS
Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets.
ANDREW
(as Storyteller)
When disappointment closes in,
PETER
(to JESUS)
We have toiled all night, and yet taken nothing.
ANDREW
With stinging loss on every shore,
PETER
Nevertheless, at thy word, I will let down the net.
ANDREW
He bids me turn and look again,
PETER
(as Storyteller)
And when we cast our net, we enclosed a great multitude of fishes.
ANDREW
And lo, my cup it runneth o’er.
PETER
(as Storyteller)
…and the net brake.
JAMES
(as Storyteller)
And they beckoned unto their partners,
James and John, that they should come and help them.
JOHN
(as Storyteller)
And we came, and the fishes filled the ship, so that it began to sink.
PETER
(to JESUS)
Depart from me; For Lord, I am unworthy.
JESUS
Fear not; Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
JOHN
(as Storyteller)
And he ordained twelve Apostles in all,
that they should be with him, and that
he might send them forth to preach, And
to have power to heal sicknesses, and to
cast out devils.
PETER
And when I hide my face in shame,
When low I fall and cannot fight,
He comes, and lifts me up again,
And turns my face back toward the light.
Come unto him all ye who seek,
Ye wandering souls on darkest rim,
With hearts laid low and spirits meek,
Come unto him…

The Storm

ANDREW
(as Storyteller)
Now it came to pass that Jesus
constrained Peter and others of his
disciples to get into a ship, and to go
before him unto the other side.
PETER
(as Storyteller)
But there arose a great storm of wind.
And the ship was now in the midst of the
sea, tossed with waves.
APOSTLES
Various cries of: “Bring down the
sails”, “Keep rowing”, “We shall
perish!”, “Courage!” etc.
JAMES
It is a spirit!
JESUS
Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
PETER
Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto
thee on the water!
JESUS
Come.
PETER
Yet when the shadows gather round,
And wind and waves against me be,
My feet grow heavy, sinking down,
Till I cry out:
Lord, save me!
JOHN
(as Storyteller)
When darkness clouds the starry night,
When hope is swallowed in the sea,
He comes, a sure and constant light!
He comes, he comes to rescue me!
JESUS
(to PETER)
O thou of little faith, wherefore didst
thou doubt?
The Multitude follows Jesus
MULTITUDE
It matters not what may befall,
What threatening hand hangs over me;
He is my Savior through it all,
My refuge from mine enemy.
Come unto him all ye depressed,
Ye erring souls whose eyes are dim,
Ye weary ones who long for rest.
Come unto him! Come unto him!

Miracles

LAME MAN
(as Storyteller)
There’s a wideness in God’s mercy,
Like the wideness of the sea;
There’s a kindness in his justice,
Far more kind than we dare dream.
There’s a light to bid us welcome,
And it shines with brightest beam.
There’s a wideness in God’s mercy…
JAIRUS
Master!
Master! My little daughter lies ill,
We know not what else to do,
My little girl, she will die, Lord.
Please!
I pray thee, come lay thy hands on her,
That she may be healed,
And she shall live…
JESUS
Where hast thou laid her?
JAIRUS
Come and see!
SICK WOMAN
Please…
If I could get by…
MAN
No! Stay away!
SICK WOMAN
Please…
They know not how it feels to be here on
the outside,
Rejected,
Alone,
Every look a reminder that I am unclean.
They know not what it is to be cast in
the shadows,
In darkness,
‘Till you’re a shadow yourself.
How I long to be heard, to be held, to
be seen!
But no! If I am seen, then they’ll cast
me away,
No one look!
No one knows all the hurt,
All the shame…
But he, he knows,
He must know,
For he casteth no one aside.
Oh, he:
Man of sorrows,
Sees the sparrow when she falls!
JESUS
Who touched me?
PETER
Master, the multitude throng thee and
press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?
JESUS
Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive
that virtue is gone out of me.
SICK WOMAN
Lord, it is I who have touched thee
For I have been sick many years,
And no one and nothing could heal me.
How I tried!
So many years I have fought!
So many hopes come to naught!
What else could I do, Lord?
When I heard that thou comest, I thought,
If I touch just the hem of thy clothes,
How thy mercy is great!
And I might be made whole.
And when I touched thee, not a moment,
Then I felt that I was clean!
All my suffering, all my sorrow,
Nothing else could heal but thee.
JESUS
Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith
hath made thee whole;
Go in peace.
JAIRUS
(to JESUS)
Rabbi, please, my daughter…
JAIRUS’ KIN
(to JAIRUS)
Lord, thy daughter is dead.
JAIRUS’ KIN (cont’d)
Why troublest thou the Master any
further?
YOUNG CHILD
He who sees the little sparrow,
JAIRUS
We are too late.
YOUNG CHILD
Though she’s small like me and you,
JESUS
(to JAIRUS)
Be not afraid, only believe.
YOUNG CHILD
How he loves that little sparrow!
Alleluia! Alleluia!
And I know he loves me too.
MOTHER
{Humming…}
JESUS
Woman.
MOTHER
Master.
JESUS
Damsel, I say unto thee, arise.
DAUGHTER OF JAIRUS
Mother, why weepest thou?
JESUS
Give her something to eat.

He Loves Me Too

The Children with Jesus
YOUNG CHILD
When the sheep is lost, how the shepherd
Calls and searches all the night thru.
A FEW CHILDREN
Jesus is the kindest shepherd,
A FEW MORE
Alleluia, alleluia!
And I know he’ll find me too!
MANY CHILDREN
He who clothes the beautiful flowers
Paints the clouds across the blue,
When I see those beautiful flowers
Alleluia, alleluia!
Then I know he me loves too!
Alleluia!
Sing alleluia!
Oh, how Jesus loves me too!
ALL CHILDREN
He who counts the stars in the heavens
Counts me his and knows me well
He who rules o’er all creation
Alleluia, alleluia!
Loves me more than any can tell!
A FEW CHILDREN
Alleluia!
Sing alleluia!
YOUNG CHILD
Oh, how Jesus loves me too!

God is Love

REPENTANT WOMAN
(as Storyteller)
And one of the Pharisees desired of
Jesus that he would eat with him. And,
behold, a woman in the city, which was a
sinner, when she knew that Jesus was
come, brought an alabaster box of
ointment.
SIMON THE PHARISEE
(as Storyteller)
And Jesus went into my house, and sat down to meat.
REPENTANT WOMAN
There’s a wideness in God’s mercy,
Like the wideness of the sea;
There’s a kindness in his justice,
Far more kind than we dare dream.
There is welcome for the sinner,
With more grace than I deserve,
There’s a wideness in God’s mercy…
For the love of God is broader
Than the measures of man’s mind,
And the heart of the Eternal
Is most wonderful and kind:
Sing my soul, and all within me,
Sing to break the clouds above,
Sing, and praise, and shout forever:
God is love! God is love.

SIMON THE PHARISEE
This man, if he were a prophet, would
have known who and what manner of woman
this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner.
JESUS (to SIMON)
Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee.
SIMON THE PHARISEE
Master, say on.
JESUS
There was a certain creditor which had
two debtors: the one owed five hundred
pence, and the other fifty. And when
they had nothing to pay, he frankly
forgave them both. Tell me therefore,
which of them will love him most?
SIMON THE PHARISEE
I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most.
JESUS
Seest thou this woman? I entered into
thine house, thou gavest me no water for
my feet: but she hath washed my feet
with tears, and wiped them with the
hairs of her head. Thou gavest me no
kiss: but this woman since the time I
came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet.
My head with oil thou didst not anoint:
but this woman hath anointed my feet
with ointment. Wherefore I say unto
thee, Her sins, which are many, are
forgiven; for she loved much: but to
whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.
(to the WOMAN)
Thy sins are forgiven.

Choir signs in the background in Aramaic (Aramaic was the language Jesus and his followers would have most likely spoken): Alaha kavawa (God is love); Adarainan (Help us); Hakanah ahkav (God so loved…); Maran, pazan (Lord, save us)


PHARISEE 1
Why dost thou thus speak blasphemies?
JESUS (to the WOMAN)
Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.
PHARISEE 1
He hath a devil!
REPENTANT WOMAN
No!
PHARISEE 1
This man hath a devil!
REPENTANT WOMAN
No he…
SIMON THE PHARISEE
These are not the words of him that hath a devil.
PHARISEE 3
Who can forgive sins but God only?
PHARISEE 1
These words are blasphemy!
REPENTANT WOMAN
No!
PHARISEE 1
This man speaketh blasphemies!!
REPENTANT WOMAN
He saith well, for he hath saved me,
And his pardon freely gives;
PHARISEE 1
Why hear ye him?!
REPENTANT WOMAN
I love because he loveth me,
I live because he lives.
PHARISEE 1
He hath a devil and is mad!
REPENTANT WOMAN
I sing praise the God of grace;
I trust his truth and know his might;
He calls me his, I call him mine,
My God, my joy, my light!

Hosanna (Thy Savior Hath Come)

WOMAN
(as Storyteller)
Now it was the Feast of the Passover.
And many people that were come to the
feast, when they heard that Jesus was
coming to Jerusalem, took branches of
palm trees, and went forth to meet him.
LAME MAN
(as Storyteller)
And many spread their garments in the
way; others took their branches, and
strawed them in the way.
WOMAN
And when Jesus was come nigh, the whole
multitude of the disciples began to
rejoice and praise God with a loud voice
for all the mighty works that they had seen!
MULTITUDE
The Promise of Ages whom prophets foretold,
For whom we have waited e’er long,
Hath come to redeem us from slavery’s yoke
And deliver His people back home.
Come, Israel, come and see He who shall reign,
In whom we will ever rejoice
We hear the sound of the glorious refrain
And it echoeth back in our voice:
Hosanna! Hosanna! Thy Savior hath come,
O Israel, and blessed He’ll ever be called!
Hosanna! Hosanna! Sing praises to God,
For our Hope, our Deliv’rer, our All!
BLIND MAN
Master!
Master, it was I who was blind, now I see.
JESUS
Dost thou believe on the Son of God?
BLIND MAN
Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him?
JESUS
Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee.
BLIND MAN
Lord, I believe.
WOMEN
Oh why should we wander as strangers from thee,
And turn from thy bounteous hand?
Restore and defend us, oh set us free,
That, beside thee, we ever may stand!
MULTITUDE
Hosanna! Hosanna! Thy Savior hath come,
O Israel, and blessed He’ll ever be called!
Hosanna! Hosanna! Sing praises to God,
For our Hope, our Deliv’rer, our All!
CAIAPHAS (to JESUS)
Master, rebuke thy disciples.
MULTITUDE
Hosanna! Hosanna! Hosanna!
JESUS (to CAIAPHAS)
I tell you that, if these should hold
their peace, the stones would
immediately cry out.
MULTITUDE
He looks, and ten thousands of angels rejoice,
And myriads wait for His word;
He speaks, and eternity, filled with His voice,
Re-echoes the praise of her Lord.
Hosanna! Hosanna! They Savior hath come,
O Israel, and blessed He’ll ever be called!
Hosanna! Hosanna! Sing praises to God,
For our Hope, our Deliv’rer, our All!
Hosanna! Hosanna! They Savior hath come!
Our Hope, our Salvation, our All!

The Last Supper

ANDREW
(as Storyteller)
Now when the hour of the feast was come,
the disciples of Jesus went, and made
ready the passover.
PETER
(as Storyteller)
And Jesus sat down, and the twelve
apostles with him.
JOHN
Why is this night different
From all other nights?
APOSTLES / JESUS
Because we once were slaves,
JUDAS
And now we are free.
JESUS
I have earnestly desired to eat this
Passover with you before I suffer.
Thee washing of feet
PETER
(as Storyteller)
And he riseth from supper, and laid
aside his garments; and took a towel,
and girded himself. After that he
poureth water into a basin, and began to
wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe
them with the towel wherewith he was girded.
JESUS
A new commandment I give unto you, That
ye love one another; as I have loved
you, that ye also love one another. By
this shall all men know that ye are my
disciples, if ye have love one to another.
CHOIR (V.O.)
God is Love: and he enfoldeth
All the world in one embrace;
With unfailing grasp he holdeth
Every child of every race.
And when human hearts are breaking
Under sorrow’s iron rod,
Then they find that selfsame aching
Deep within the heart of God.

JESUS
I know whom I have chosen: but that the
scripture may be fulfilled, verily,
verily, I say unto you, that one of you
shall betray me.
(to JUDAS)
That thou doest, do quickly.

JOHN
(as Storyteller)
And as we were eating, Jesus took bread,
and blessed it, and brake it:
JESUS
Take, eat; This is my body which is
given for you: this do in remembrance of me.
JOHN
And he took the cup, and gave thanks:
JESUS
Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood
of the new testament, which is shed for
many for the remission of sins.
Yet a little while, and the world seeth
me no more; But I will not leave you
comfortless: I will come to you.
CHOIR (V.O.)
(in Aramaic)
God so loved the world…
JESUS
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give
unto you: Let not your heart be
troubled, neither let it be afraid.
Arise, let us go hence.
Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now
come, that ye shall be scattered, every
man to his own, and shall leave me
alone: and yet I am not alone, because
the Father is with me. In the world ye
shall have tribulation: but be of good
cheer; I have overcome the world.

Gethsemane

JESUS
Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.
Peter, James, John…
My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even
unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me?
(in prayer)
O my Father, if it be possible, let this
cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I
will, but as thou wilt.
CHOIR (V.O.)
(in Aramaic)
O my Father, if it be possible, let this
cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I
will, but as thou wilt.

Arrest

JUDAS
(to the MOB)
Whomsoever I kiss,
That same is he;
Take him, and lead him away
Lead him away safely.
PETER
Lord?
JESUS
(to the APOSTLES)
Sleep on now, and take your rest: it is
enough, the hour is come; behold, the
Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
JUDAS
Hail, master.
JESUS
Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?
JOHN
Peter! No!
JESUS
Put up thy sword:
(to the MOB)
If ye seek me, let these go their way!
JESUS (to PETER)
Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to
my Father, and he shall presently give
me more than twelve legions of angels?
The cup which my Father hath given me,
shall I not drink it?

MARY THE MOTHER
Why is this night different?
Are we this night set free?
Are we now slaves no longer?
JOHN
Mary, come!
They have taken our Lord away,
And I follow behind!
They have taken thy son!

Pilate

PILATE (to the CROWD)
Ye have brought this Man unto me, as one
that perverteth the people:
And behold, I have examined Him before you,
And I have found no fault in Him,
No, nothing for which death is worthy!
I will therefore chastise him and
release him.
Take him to be scourged.
Now, this is enough!
CHOIR (V.O.)
(in Aramaic)
Behold the Man,
The Lamb of God who taketh away the sins of the world!
PILATE (to the SOLDIERS)
Enough!
(to the CROWD)
Enough!
Behold, is this not enough?
Behold the man, the punishment he’s
borne:
The cruel whip, the mocking scorn…
CAIAPHAS
Away with him!
PILATE
His crimes have seen enough!
PHARISEE 1
Away with him!
PILATE
Why? What evil hath he done?
CAIAPHAS
If thou lettest this man go,
Thou art no friend,
But Caesar’s foe!
PHARISEE 1
Thou art but Caesar’s foe!
PILATE
(to JESUS)
Art thou the King of the Jews?
JESUS
Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or
did others tell it thee of me?
PILATE
Thine own nation and the chief priests
have delivered thee unto me: what hast
thou done?
JESUS
My kingdom is not of this world: if my
kingdom were of this world, then would
my servants fight, that I should not be
delivered here.
CHOIR (V.O.)
(in Aramaic)
Away with him!
PILATE
Art thou a king then?
JESUS
To this end was I born, and for this
cause came I into the world, that I
should bear witness unto the truth.
PILATE
What is truth?
CHOIR (V.O.)
Away with him!
MARY THE MOTHER
Enough!
Is this not enough?
Oh Lord, my God, have mercy on my son!
Has not thy will in this been done?
CHOIR (V.O.)
Away with him!
PILATE (to JESUS)
Speak now:
Hast thou not had enough?
MARY THE MOTHER
Has not the bitter cup been emptied?
PILATE
Art thou a king then?
Tell me…
MARY THE MOTHER
Is this not enough?
PILATE
Knowest thou not that I have power to
crucify thee?
CROWD
Away with him!
PILATE
And by that same power can release thee?
And speakest thou not unto me?!
CHOIR (V.O.)
The Lamb of God!
PILATE
What shall I do then with this Jesus?
CAIAPHAS
Let him be crucified!
PILATE
This Jesus ye call Christ?
PHARISEE 1
Let him be crucified!
PILATE
What evil hath He done?
CAIAPHAS
He made himself the Son of God!
PILATE
Behold your King!
PHARISEE 2
We have no king but Caesar!
PILATE
Shall I crucify your King?!

CHOIR (in Aramaic): Emrah d’el a ha (The Lamb of God);
Ha emrah d’el a ha (Behold the Lamb of God); Emrah d’shaqal kh’titha d’alama (The Lamb who bears the sins of the world)

PILATE
Enough!
Enough.
See ye to it.

Crucifixion

MARY THE MOTHER
(as Storyteller)
And he bearing his cross went forth into
a place called Golgotha: Where they
crucified him, between two thieves.
JOHN
(as Storyteller)
And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on
the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF
NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS.

MARY THE MOTHER
O Lord,
When is it enough?
My breaking heart,
Though pierced and torn within,
I’ll keep my vigil here with him.
Behold,
The handmaid of the Lord.
Be it unto me…
Until it is enough.
JESUS
Father, forgive them; for they know not
what they do.
MARY MAGDALENE
(as Storyteller)
Now there stood by the cross of Jesus
his mother, and his mother’s sister, and
Mary Magdalene. And Jesus therefore saw
his mother, and John standing by, whom
he loved:
JESUS (to Mary)
Woman, behold thy son!
(to John)
Behold thy mother!
MARY MAGDALENE
And from that hour that disciple took
her unto his own home.
JESUS
My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

It is finished: Father, into thy hands I
commend my spirit.

Mary Magdalene

MARY MAGDALENE
Come and see!
They have taken our Lord away!
Where he is, I know not,
For the sepulcher’s empty!

JOHN
(as Storyteller)
And we came, and we went into the
sepulcher, and seeth the linen clothes
lie, And the napkin, that was about his
head, not lying with the linen clothes,
but wrapped together in a place by itself.
PETER
(as Storyteller)
And we went away again unto our own home.
ANGEL
Woman, why weepest thou?
MARY MAGDALENE
(to the ANGELS)
Because they have taken my Lord away,
Where he is, I know not,
I know not where they have laid him.
JESUS
Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou?
MARY MAGDALENE
Tell me, sir,
If it be thou who hast borne him hence,
Tell me where thou hast laid him,
And I’ll take him…
…and I’ll take him away!
JESUS
Mary.
MARY MAGDALENE
Master.
JESUS
Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended
to my Father: but go to my brethren, and
say unto them, I ascend unto my Father,
and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

Gloria (My Savior Lives)

MARY MAGDALENE
Sing, oh my heart,
Sing thy rejoicing!
Morning has dawned and will stretch
forth her wing.
No more the night
Holds thee his captive,
Jesus is risen, my Savior and King!
I’ll sing Gloria!
Glory to the Lord!
Gloria! Glory for the life he doth give!
Gloria! Gloria! Gloria!
Gloria! For my Savior lives!
Why dost thou weep?
What is thy longing?
Why art thou cast down and turned from
the light?
Lift up your eyes,
Look for the morning,
Wait, for the darkness is only the night!

MARY MAGDALENE / ANGELS
And sing Gloria!
Glory to the Lord!
Gloria! Glory for the life he doth give!
Gloria! Gloria! Gloria!
MARY MAGDALENE
Gloria! For my Savior lives!
JESUS
Peace be unto you.
CHOIR
Israel rejoice!
Sing all creation!
Jesus is risen with life in his wings!
Raise up your voice,
Sing our salvation!
Now more than conquerors through Him, our King,
Sing we Gloria!
Glory to the Lord!
MARY MAGDALENE
Gloria! Glory to the Lord!
CHOIR
Gloria! Glory for the life he doth give!
MARY MAGDALENE
Oh, sing Gloria!
CHOIR
Gloria! Gloria!
MARY MAGDALENE
Gloria! For my Savior lives!
Gloria! Gloria! Gloria!
Gloria! For my Savior lives!

Finale (Come Unto Him)

PETER
There’s a wideness in God’s mercy,
Like the wideness of the sea;
There’s a kindness in his justice,
Far more kind than we could dream.
REPENTANT WOMAN
There’s a light to bid us welcome
And it shines with brightest beam,
MARY MAGDALENE
There’s a wideness in God’s mercy…
JAIRUS / WIFE
For the love of God is broader
Than the measures of man’s mind,
SICK WOMAN
And the heart of the Eternal
Is most wonderful and kind:
ALL PRINCIPALS
Sin and death and hell shall never
O’er us final triumph gain;
MARY THE MOTHER
God is Love, so Love for ever
O’er the universe must reign.
PETER
Who shall separate us from the love of
Christ? shall tribulation, or distress,
or persecution, or famine, or nakedness,
or peril, or sword? Nay, in all these
things we are more than conquerors
through him that loved us.
CHOIR
It matters not what may befall,
What threatening hand hangs over me;
He is my Savior through it all,
My refuge from mine enemy.
Come unto him all ye depressed,
Ye erring souls whose eyes are dim,
Ye weary ones who long for rest.
Come unto him! Come unto him!


JESUS
And lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.

THE END.
