The Reproaches These represent Christ calling his people to repentance for sin and unbelief. Hear them addressed to you. Repent.

Sung by all without accompaniment after the 3rd reproach:
Lamb of God, pure and holy,
Who on the cross did suffer,
Ever patient and lowly,
Yourself to scorn did offer.
All sins you carried for us,
Else had despair reigned o'er us:
Your peace be with us, O Jesus!

Jesus rose; the Light returns.
