"And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye:
for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here:
for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay."

- Matthew 28: 5-6  (KJV) 

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Easter Sunday is one of those moveable date holidays, which we have observed here each year in a number of different ways: - Part I - Religious Version - Secular Version


   Surely your homework is to be found within those pages, so no further assignments will be made today - unless you count the music.

   You'll no doubt recognize the strain's of Bach's beloved Passion Chorale ("Ahh, Bach!"), but I've provided you with two sets of lyrics.  The first version by LDS poet Karen Lynn Davidson is the one used by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as it more closely articulates our doctrines.

BONUS #1 - - 01/09/08 -  Lance - organ / pipe

BONUS #2 - - 07/28/07 - Jeff - fingerstyle guitar solo

BONUS #3 - - 03/02/08 - Ashland Grace Brethren Church. Shannon Breen directing. Hannah Westfall on Violin

      From My Sister, Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky ('59) of NC - 03/22/08:


   This is the poem I read at this morning's Easter Cantata practice for the devotional - as you requested.

Love, Eleanor


        Jesus and Alexander died at age thirty-three.

        One lived and died for self; one died for you and me;

        The Greek died on a throne; the Jew died on a cross;  

        One's life a triumph seemed; the other but a loss.

        One lead vast armies forth;  the other walked alone.

        One shed a whole world's blood; the other gave His own.

        One won the world in life and lost it all in death;

        The other lost His life to win the whole world's faith.


        Jesus and Alexander died at age thirty-three.

        One died in Babylon, and one on Calvary.

        One gained all for himself; and one Himself He gave,

        One conquered every throne; the other every grave.

        The one made himself God, and God made Himself less,

        The one lived but to blast, the other but to bless.

        When died the Greek, forever fell his throne of swords;

        But Jesus died to live forever Lord of Lords.


        Jesus and Alexander died at age thirty-three.

        The Greek made all men slaves; the Jew made all men free.

        One built a throne on blood; the other from above.

        One won all this earth, to lose all earth and heaven.

        The other gave up all, that all to Him be given.

        The Greek forever died; the Jew forever lives

        He loses all who gets, and wins all things who gives.


         - Charles Ross Weede

   Thank you, Eleanor, I really like this one! Happy Easter, Lady!

Passion Chorale

Music: Hans L. Hassler, 1564-1612; harm. by Johann Sebastian Bach, 1685-1750

O Savior, Thou Who Wearest a Crown


Text: Karen Lynn Davidson (b. 1943)


O Savior, thou who wearest
A crown of piercing thorn,
The pain thou meekly bearest,
Weigh'd down by grief and scorn.
The soldiers mock and flail thee;
For drink they give thee gall;
Upon the cross they nail thee
To die, O King of all.

No creature is so lowly,
No sinner so depraved,
But feels thy presence holy,
And thru thy love is saved.
Tho craven friends betray thee,
They feel thy love's embrace;
The very foes who slay thee
Have access to thy grace.

Thy sacrifice transcended
The mortal law's demand;
Thy mercy is extended
To ev'ry time and land.
No more can Satan harm us,
Tho long the fight may be,
Nor fear of death alarm us;
We live, O Lord, thru thee.

What praises can we offer
To thank thee, Lord most high?
In our place thou didst suffer;
In our place thou didst die,
By heaven's plan appointed,
To ransom us, our King.
O Jesus, the anointed,
To thee our love we bring!

 O Sacred Head Now Wounded

Text: possibly Bernard of Clairvaux (10911153)
Translated by Paul Gerhardt, 1656, and James W. Alexander, 1830;

O sacred Head, now wounded,
with grief and shame weighed down,
now scornfully surrounded
with thorns, thine only crown:
how pale thou art with anguish,
with sore abuse and scorn!
How does that visage languish
which once was bright as morn!

What thou, my Lord, has suffered
was all for sinners' gain;
mine, mine was the transgression,
but thine the deadly pain.
Lo, here I fall, my Savior!
'Tis I deserve thy place;
look on me with thy favor,
vouchsafe to me thy grace.

What language shall I borrow
to thank thee, dearest friend,
for this thy dying sorrow,
thy pity without end?
O make me thine forever;
and should I fainting be,
Lord, let me never, never
outlive my love for thee.
