My God, my God, why have you forsaken your Son? How can you tolerate the suffering of the One who came to save? How can it be that He who brought abundant life has been sentenced to a cruel death? Hear our lament. Stand with us in our sorrow. Sit with us in the dark. Remind us of our Savior’s promise that we will see him again. Grant us the strength to get through the night in the hope of a new day. Amen.
