Vespers in Holy Week

Holy Week at Vespers –

1. The royal banners forward go;
The cross shines forth in mystic glow
Where he, by whom our flesh was made,
In that same flesh our ransom paid:

2. Where deep for us the spear was dyed,
Life’s torrent rushing from his side,
To wash us in the precious flood
Where flowed the water and the blood.

~Office Hymn
