Holy Week, In Thurles, Co. Tipperary.

This week, for Christians across the world, is ‘Holy Week’, latter the most sacred week in the Christian liturgical year. (View Holy Week Religious Services – Thurles Parish 2024, Here.)
Holy Week, each year, begins with the commemoration of Christ’s entry into Jerusalem on ‘Palm Sunday’, which this year began on March 24th.
During the week ahead, Christians will mark the betrayal of Jesus on Wednesday, known as ‘Spy Wednesday’.
The week will climax with the commemoration of the ‘Last Supper’ on ‘Holy Thursday’, followed by the Passion of Jesus, on ‘Good Friday’.
Holy Week for Christians will conclude with the commemoration of Christ’s crucified death on ‘Holy Saturday’, and here in Thurles at least, the celebration of his resurrection will take place at an ‘Open Air Sunrise Service’, beginning at dawn (6:30am) on Easter Sunday, March 31st, in Killinan Cemetery, Nenagh Road, Thurles, Co. Tipperary. (R498).

Lyrics
: Zach Williams, Jonathan Smith, and country music songwriter Casey Beathard.

There Was Jesus.

Every time I tried to make it on my own,
Every time I tried to stand and start to fall,
And all those lonely roads that I have travelled on,
There was Jesus.
When the life I built came crashing to the ground,
When the friends I had were nowhere to be found,
I couldn’t see it then but I can see it now,
There was Jesus.
In the waiting, in the searching,
In the healing and the hurting,
Like a blessing buried in the broken pieces,
Every minute, every moment,
Where I’ve been and where I’m going,
Even when I didn’t know it or couldn’t see it,
There was Jesus.
For this man who needs amazing kind of grace, (Mmm)
For forgiveness at a price I couldn’t pay, (Mmm)
I’m not perfect so I thank God every day,
There was Jesus. (There was Jesus).
In the waiting, in the searching,
In the healing and the hurting,
Like a blessing buried in the broken pieces,
Every minute, every moment,
Where I’ve been and where I’m going,
Even when I didn’t know it or couldn’t see it,
There was Jesus.
On the mountain, in the valleys, (There was Jesus),
In the shadows of the alleys, (There was Jesus),
In the fire, in the flood, (There was Jesus),
Always is and always was.
No I never walk alone, (Never walk alone),
You are always there,
In the waiting, in the searching,
In the healing and the hurting,
Like a blessing buried in the broken pieces,
Every minute, (Every minute), every moment, (Every moment),
Where I’ve been and where I’m going,
Even when I didn’t know it or couldn’t see it,
There was Jesus.
There was Jesus.
(There was Jesus.)
(There was Jesus.)
