Good Friday

What language shall I borrow to thank Thee, dearest friend,
For this Thy dying sorrow, Thy pity without end?
O make me Thine forever, and should I fainting be,
Lord, let me never, never outlive my love to Thee.

    By far my favorite Passion chorale. Nothing else comes close. Played it as a meditation solo at the Good Friday service last night.
