Lent: Amazing Love
By Lloyd Larson
A unique Palm/Passion Sunday program by Lloyd Larson! Amazing Love! opens with a joyous palm procession for children's voices and/or adult choir. Then the congregation joins in singing a traditional Palm Sunday hymn. The jubilant mood abruptly shifts as the narrator continues the Passion story, foretelling the events of Holy Week. The choir sings of Christ's amazing love, and, as we gaze at the cross, children and congregation join in a final choral prayer. Approximately 9.5 minutes long, Amazing Love! can be performed in its entirety or in 2 parts, the first as a triumphant worship introit and the second at the conclusion of worship, providing a dramatic beginning for Holy Week.
