Sunday 13.09 Holy Cross Sunday

Christus Rex

This Sunday we celebrate the Triumph of the Cross of our Saviour

over sin, suffering and death ..

We venerate your Cross, O Lord

We celebrate your Glorious Resurrection

for by means of the Tree, joy has come into the whole world – Alleluia!

As this worship song reminds us:

‘I’m trading my sorrows, I’m trading my shame,

I’m trading my sickness, I’m trading my pain –

I’m laying them down for the joy of the Lord’

All through the power and Victory Christ won for us on the Cross.

Sing along now and if you can, join us as we sing these words live at Mass:

I’m trading my sorrows

I’m trading my shame

I’m laying them down for the joy of the Lord

I’m trading my sickness I’m trading my pain

I’m laying them down for the joy of the Lord

Refrain Yes Lord, yes Lord, yes yes Lord

            Yes Lord, yes Lord, yes yes Lord

                    Yes Lord, yes Lord, yes yes Lord, Amen

 I am pressed but not crushed,

Persecuted not abandoned

Struck down but not destroyed

I am blessed beyond the curse

For His promise will endure

That His joy’s gonna be my strength

 Though the sorrow may last for the night, His joy comes with the morning
