2021 Lenten Devotions – The Hymns of Lent

Lent is a season of reflection, drawing us deeper into our faith as we are drawn closer to the Cross of Jesus! The hymns of Lent, from the Lutheran Service Book, are a wonderful and theological reminder of how God’s Word leads us to sing songs of praise, even in the midst of a Lenten journey. In the hymnal, under each hymn, you will find, in teeny tiny print, portions of Scripture that either the hymn is based on, or that undergird the message of the hymn. This year our Circuit Visitors will share a Scriptural perspective on these beloved hymns. Take this time to become familiar with the hymns. While you may not recognize every tune, let the hymn writer’s words permeate your soul as you grow in His grace. May God bless us as we together sing the hymns of Lent.
