The Scripture Lesson Matthew 26: 36-44
Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to them, “Sit here while I go over there and pray.” He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee along with him, and he began to be sorrowful and troubled. Then he said to them, “My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me.”
Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.” Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping, “Could you men not keep watch with me for one hour?” He asked Peter. Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.
He went away a second time and prayed, “My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your will be done.” When he came back, he again found them sleeping, because their eyes were heavy. So he left them and went away once more and prayed the third time, saying the same thing.
This is the gospel of Christ.
Thanks be to God

The Dismissal with Benediction
Go forth to walk in the way of the cross;
May God bless and keep you in his mercy.
We go in the name of the Lord.
Go in grace and peace from God, our Father
And the Lord Jesus Christ.
We go in the power of him who was obedient even unto death on a cross.
Go to do God’s will.
Not my will but thy will O Lord. Amen.
The Choral Response Amen

Holy, Holy, Holy, tho’ the darkness hide thee,
Tho’ the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see;
Only Thou art holy; there is none beside Thee.
Perfect in power, in love, and purity.
