"O Come and Mourn With Me Awhile"

There are few days darker than Good Friday.  And yet, born of that very darkness is the love that saves us all.  As you remember this day and what Jesus did for you, I invite you to share in this YouTube expression of art from chalk artist Debby Topliff and musical artists Jars of Clay, from their 2005 album Redemption Songs.  On a day in which we all must mourn, let us never forget this ultimate truth- It's Friday, and Jesus is hanging on the cross. But it's only Friday- and Sunday is coming!  Except this invitation, and share in a few moments of reflection of the events of the last week Jesus spent in his earthly body. Thank you, God, for loving us enought to give your only Son...

O Come and Mourn with me awhile, O come near to the Savior's side
O come together, let us mourn.  Jesus our lord is crucified

O Love of God, O sin of man
In this dread act your strength is tried
And victory remains with love
Jesus our lord is crucified
