Opening Hymn 143 The glory of these forty days Erhalt uns, Herr
Offertory Anthem Lay up for yourselves Ned Rorem (b. 1923)
Words: Matthew 6: 20-21
Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt,
And where thieves do not break through and steal.
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Communion Motet Ave verum corpus William Byrd (1543-1623)
Words attributed to Pope Innocent VI (d. 1362)
Ave, verum corpus natum de Maria Virgine, vere passum immolatum in Cruce pro homine,
Cujus latus perforatum unda fluxit sanguine, esto nobis praegustatum in mortis examine.
Hail, true body born of the Virgin Mary, who truly suffered, sacrificed on the Cross for man,
Whose pierced side overflowed with blood, Be for us a foretaste in the test of death.
Closing Hymn 674 Forgive our sins as we forgive Detroit
