We Respond to the Word

Reproach for Good Friday

Leader: O my people, O my Church,
what have I done to you, or in what have I offended you?
I led you forth from the land of Egypt
and delivered you by the waters of baptism,
but you have prepared a cross for your Savior.

People: Holy God,
holy and mighty,
holy and immortal One,
have mercy upon us.

Leader: I led you through the desert forty years and fed you with manna;
I brought you through times of persecution and of renewal
and gave you my body, the bread of heaven;
but you have prepared a cross for your Savior.

People: Holy God,
holy and mighty,
holy and immortal One,
have mercy upon us.

I gave you a royal scepter, and bestowed the keys to the kingdom,
but you have given me a crown of thorns.
I raised you on high with great power,
but you have hanged me on the cross.

People: Holy God,
holy and mighty,
holy and immortal One,
have mercy upon us.

 My peace I gave, which the world cannot give,
and washed your feet as a servant,
but you draw the sword to strike in my name
and seek high places in my kingdom.

People: Holy God,
holy and mighty,
holy and immortal One,
have mercy upon us.

I called you to go and bring forth fruit,
but you cast lots for my clothing.
I prayed that you all may be one,
but you continue to quarrel and divide.

People: Holy God,
holy and mighty,
holy and immortal One,
have mercy upon us.
