|Lord’s Day 11, 2007|
I reioyced, when they sayd to me, We wil go into the house of the Lord. (Psalme 122:1 Geneva Bible)
The Christian Scheme of Salvation Worthy of God
by Philip Doddridge (1702–1751)
mmortal God, on Thee we call,
The great original of all,
Through Thee we are, to Thee we tend,
Our sure support, our glorious end.
We praise that wise mysterious grace,
That pitied our revolted race,
And Jesus, our victorious Head,
The Captain of salvation made.
He, Thine eternal love decreed,
Should many sons to glory lead;
And sinful worms to Him are given,
A colony to people heav’n.
Jesus for us—Oh, gracious name!—
Encounters agony and shame;
Jesus, the glorious and the great,
Was by dire suff’ring made complete.
A scene of wonders her we see,
Worthy the Son, and worthy Thee;
And while this theme employs our tongues,
All heaven unites its sweetest songs.
—from Worthy Is the Lamb (Soli Deo Gloria, 2004).
salme 149 (Geneva Bible)
1 Prayse ye the Lord. Sing ye vnto the Lord a newe song: let his prayse be heard in the Congregation of Saints.
2 Let Israel reioyce in him that made him, and let ye children of Zion reioyce in their King.
3 Let them prayse his Name with the flute: let them sing prayses vnto him with the timbrell and harpe.
4 For the Lord hath pleasure in his people: he will make the meeke glorious by deliuerance.
5 Let ye Saints be ioyfull with glorie: let them sing loud vpon their beddes.
6 Let the high Actes of God bee in their mouth, and a two edged sword in their hands,
7 To execute vengeance vpon the heathen, and corrections among the people:
8 To binde their Kings in chaines, and their nobles with fetters of yron,
9 That they may execute vpon them the iudgement that is written: this honour shall be to all his Saintes. Prayse ye the Lord.
Grace be with you, and Peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
