418. Proper 3 (Series B)

The lessons for this service, in the rare event that a Sunday after Trinity occurs during May 24-28, are Hosea 2:14-20, Acts 2:14a skipping to 36-47, and Mark 2:18-22 (13-17 optional) – the same Old Testament and Gospel lessons as Series B's Epiphany 8. Also, much of the second lesson is the same as that for Series A's Easter 3. Not repeating myself becomes quite the dance. The tune is HERRE JESU KRIST by Ludvig M. Lindeman (1871), which at least LHy, TCH, TLH, CWALH and ELHy paired with "Lord Jesus Christ, my Savior blest." (I'm away from my hymnal collection today, so I haven't checked whether it's in ELW or CWH.)

Repentant, come
And be saved from
This crooked generation!
For Christ was tried,
By men denied,
Yea crucified,
Creating your salvation.

His baptism prize,
More than man's eyes
Or reason take its measure:
Its promise bold
The Lord has told
To young and old,
A world-embracing treasure.

Drink of its fount
On Christ's account,
Drowned in His blood and merit;
Then daily rise,
Pure in God's eyes,
To life made wise,
Anointed with the Spirit.

Yea, gladly meet
As one to eat
And drink what Jesus gives You:
Fruit of the tree
On Calvary—
That God indeed forgives you.

And now must you
Ask what to do
That Israel's God may save you?
Through Christ His Son
All, all is done;
Tell everyone
What wondrous gifts He gave you!
