Hymns and Songs for Lent and Holy Week

Ancient & Modern – Hymns and Songs for Refreshing Worship
(Many of these are in Sing Praise)

An Upper Room did our Lord prepare
And can it be that I should gain
Beneath the cross of Jesus
Come and see, come and se
Forty days and forty night
From heaven you came, helpless babe (The Servant King)
From the deep places, hear my cry
Glory be to Jesus
God the Father created you (From ashes to ashes)
Hear me, O Lord, in my distress
How deep the Father’s love for us
I danced in the morning
It is a thing most wonderful
Jesus Christ, I think upon your sacrifice
Lord Jesus, think on me
Meekness and majesty
My song is love unknown
O for a closer walk with God
Oh, to see the dawn of the darkest day
Praise to you, O Christ our Saviour
Take up thy cross, the Saviour said
There is a green hill far away
To mock your reign, O dearest Lord
Unless a grain of wheat
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
When I survey the wondrous cross
When you prayed beneath the tree
Word of God, renew your people           

Hymns of Glory, Songs of Praise

‘Take up your cross,’ the Saviour said
Ah, holy Jesus, how has thou offended
And can it be that I should gain
From heaven you came, helpless babe (The Servant King)
I danced in the morning
Lay down your head, Lord Jesus Christ
My song is love unknown
There is a green hill far away
This is your coronation
Tree of Life and awesome mystery
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
When I survey the wondrous cros
While Mary was watching, they hung Jesus high           

Laudate

Again we keep this solemn fast
As the deer longs
An upper room did our Lord prepare
Faith, hope and love

Forty days and forty nights
From heav’n you came, helpless babe (The Servant King)
I danced in the morning
Jesu, Jesu, fill us with your love
Led by the Spirit of our God
Lord Jesus, as we turn from sin
Lord Jesus, think on me
My song is love unknown
Out of the direst depths
Praise to you, O Christ our Saviour
Return to God
There is a green hill far away
Transfigure us, O Lord
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
When I survey the wondrous cross

Songs from Taizé

Eat this bread
God is forgiveness
Jesus, remember me
Stay with me
There can be no greater love
We adore you, Jesus Christ
We adore you, Lord
Where there is charity
Within our darkest night
