When faced with temptation, trust in Jesus! Redeemer Lutheran Church Sunday, February 17
Welcome to Redeemer! Lent is a time of reflection and repentance for sin. Today God shows us the serious consequences of disobeying his commands. But he also shows us the Savior who overcame sin for us and gives us eternal confidence.

Jesus, Grant that Balm and Healing CW #121 Verses 1-5 Text: Johann Heermann, , Setting: DER AM KREUZ Tune: Johann B. König,
Verse 1: Jesus, grant that balm and healing In your holy wounds I find, Evry hour that I am feeling Pains of body and of mind.
Verse 1: Should some evil thought within Tempt my treachrous heart to sin, Show the peril, and from sinning Keep me from its first beginning.
Verse 2: Should some lust or sharp temptation Fascinate my sinful mind, Let me think about your passion, And new courage I shall find.
Verse 2: Or should Satan press me hard Let me then be on my guard, Saying, Christ for me was wounded, That the tempter flee confounded.
Verse 3: If the world my heart entices With the broad and easy road, With seductive, sinful vices, Let me think about the load.
Verse 3: You were willing to endure; Then Ill flee all thoughts impure, Mastering each wild temptation, Calm in prayer and meditation.
Verse 4: Evry wound that pains or grieves me By your wounds, Lord, is made whole When Im weak, your cross revives me, Granting new life to my soul.
Verse 4: Yes, your comfort renders sweet Evry bitter cup I meet; For your all-atoning passion Has procured my souls salvation.
Verse 5: O my God, My Rock and Tower, Grant that in your death I trust, Knowing death has lost his power Since you crushed him in the dust.
Verse 5: Savior, let your agony Ever help and comfort me; When I die be my protection, Light and life and resurrection.

Jesus, My Great High Priest CW # 359 Verses 1- 4 Text: Isaac Watts, , abr., alt. Setting: BEVAN Tune: John Goss,
Verse 1: Jesus, my great High Priest, Offered his blood and died; My guilty conscience seeks No sacrifice beside. His powrful blood did once atone, And now it pleads before the throne.
Verse 2: To Christ, my substitute, Will I commit my cause; He answers and fulfills His Fathers broken laws. Behold my soul at freedom set – My Jesus paid the dreadful debt!

Sing, My Tongue, the Glorious Battle CW #122 Verses 1-5 Text: Verantius Fortunatus, c Setting: FORTUNATUS NEW Tune: Carl F. Schalk, b. 1929
Verse 1: Sing, my tongue, the glorious battle; Sing the ending of the fray. Now above the cross, the trophy, Sound the loud triumphant lay. Tell how Christ, the world's Redeemer, As a victim won the day.
Verse 2: Tell how, when at length the fullness Of th' appointed time was come, He, the Word, was born of woman, Left for us his Father's home, Blazed the path of true obedience, Shone as light amidst the gloom.
Verse 3: Thus, with thirty years accomplished, He went forth from Nazareth, Destined, dedicated, willing, Did his work and met his death; Like a lamb he humbly yielded On the cross his dying breath.
Verse 4: Faithful cross, true sign of triumph, Be for all the noblest tree; None in foliage, none in blossom, None in fruit your equal be, Symbol of the world's redemption, For your burden makes us free.
Verse 5: Unto God be praise and glory; To the Father and the Son, To th' eternal Spirit honor Now and evermore be done -- Praise and glory in the highest While the timeless ages run.
