Welcome toSt. Peter! • Today begins the greatest of all weeks: Holy Week. There is no better place to be than in God’s house to receive Jesus as our King. Later this week, we look in on Jesus and his disciples at their first communion in the Upper Room receiving Jesus’ body and blood.

No Tramp of Soldiers’ Marching Feet CWS #716Verses 1-4 Text: Timothy Dudley-Smith, b. 1926 Setting: NO TRAMP OF SOLDIERS’ MARCHING FEET Tune: David W. Music, b. 1949
Verse 1: No tramp of soldiers’ marching feet With banners and with drums, No sound of music’s martial beat: “The King of glory comes!” To greet what pomp of kingly pride No bells in triumph ring, No city gates swing open wide: “Behold, behold your King!”
Verse 2: And yet he comes. The children cheer; With palms his path is strown. With ev’ry step the cross draws near: The King of glory’s throne. Astride a colt he passes by As loud hosannas ring, Or else the very stones would cry, “Behold, behold your King!”
Verse 3: What fading flow’rs his road adorn; The palms, how soon laid down! No bloom or leaf but only thorn The King of glory’s crown. The soldiers mock, the rabble cries. The streets with tumult ring, As Pilate to the mob replies, “Behold, behold your King!”
Verse 4: Now he who bore for mortals’ sake The cross and all its pains And chose a servant’s form to take, The King of glory reigns. Hosanna to the Savior’s name Till heaven’s rafters ring, And all the ransomed host proclaim, “Behold, behold your King!”
In thankfulness for our salvation, we support God’s work with our offerings.
Lord’s Prayer All: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread.
Lord’s Prayer All: Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Lord’s Prayer All: For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours now and forever. Amen

The Sacrament Pastor: It is truly good and right that we should at all times and in all places give you thanks, O Lord, holy Father, almighty and everlasting God, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. God made His Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours, but also for the sins of the world. Therefore, with all the saints on earth and hosts of heaven, we praise your holy name and join their glorious song:
