A grain of wheat is a solitary grain
till it falls to the ground and dies.
A grain of wheat is a solitary grain,
but dead it bears a mighty harvest.
Look on Jesus, lifted up,
lifted high to redeem the world.
Gospel Reading - Jesus, Lord of Wind and Wave
35As evening fell, Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s cross to the other side of the lake.” 36So they took him just as he was and started out, leaving the crowds behind (though other boats followed). 37But soon a terrible storm arose. High waves began to break into the boat until it was nearly full of water and about to sink. 38Jesus was asleep at the back of the boat with his head on a cushion. Frantically they wakened him, shouting, “Teacher, don’t you even care that we are all about to drown?”
39Then he rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Quiet down!” And the wind fell, and there was a great calm!
40And he asked them, “Why were you so fearful? Don’t you even yet have confidence in me?”
41And they were filled with awe and said among themselves, “Who is this man, that even the winds and seas obey him?”. . . . .Mark 4:35-41
The Lord's Prayer
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial
and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
