Fifth Sunday in Lent
Every Seed That Grows Toward Glory
RATHBUN 126.96.36.199 “In the Cross of Christ I Glory”)
Every seed that grows toward glory
First is buried in the ground.
So, our Lord, you told this story,
Showing us where hope is found.
You once told the path you’d travel—
How you would be glorified;
Hope would seem to come unraveled
When you took your cross and died.
Yet you promised resurrection;
Love wins out! New hope is born!
You who faced the world’s rejection,
Lead us into Easter morn.
