Twelfth Station

Youth Church parking lot

The Twelfth Station:  Jesus Dies On The Cross.

1. Between two criminals, a mocking title above his head, with only Mary and John and Mary Magdalene to support him, Jesus surrenders his last breath:  "Into your hands I commend my spirit." 

2. We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you.
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.

3. I stand there, at the foot of the cross, side by side with all of humanity, and behold our salvation.
I carefully watch and listen to all that is said.
And then, I experience the one who gives life pass from life to death, for me.  I console Mary and John and Mary.  And let them console me.

4. This is the hour to express the deepest feelings within me.

5. "Silence before Him, all the earth!" —Habakkuk 2:20
"Silence in the presence of the Lord God!" —Zephaniah 1:7 (see Zech 2:17)

Prayer: Jesus, You gave Your life for me; I give my life for You.
