Lord’s Day 31, 2008

I reioyced, when they sayd to me, We wil go into the house of the Lord. (Psalme 122:1)

Hymn X.
My name is Jacob. Gen. xxxii. 27.
imageJohn Newton (1725–1806)

Nay, I cannot let Thee go,
Till a blessing thou bestow;
Do not turn away thy face,
Mine’s an urgent pressing case.

Dost thou ask me, who I am?
Ah, my Lord, thou know’st my name!
Yet the question gives a plea,
To support my suit with thee.

Thou didst once a wretch behold,
In rebellion blindly bold;
Scorn thy grace, thy pow’r defy,
That poor rebel, Lord, was I.

Once a sinner near despair,
Sought thy mercy-seat by prayer;
Mercy heard and set him free,
Lord, that mercy came to me.

Many years have pass’d since then,
Many changes I have seen;
Yet have been upheld till now,
Who could hold me up but thou?

Thou hast help’d in every need,
This emboldens me to plead;
After so much mercy past,
Canst thou let me sink at last?

No—I must maintain my hold,
’Tis thy goodness makes me bold;
I can no denial take,
When I plead for Jesu’s sake.

Psalme 130 (Geneva Bible)
A song of degrees.

1 Out of the deepe places haue I called vnto thee, O Lord.
2 Lord, heare my voyce: let thine eares attend to the voyce of my prayers.
3 If thou, O Lord, straightly markest iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?
4 But mercie is with thee, that thou mayest be feared.
5 I haue waited on the Lord: my soule hath waited, and I haue trusted in his worde.
6 My soule waiteth on the Lord more then the morning watch watcheth for the morning.
7 Let Israel waite on the Lord: for with the Lord is mercie, and with him is great redemption.
8 And he shall redeeme Israel from all his iniquities.

Grace be with you, and Peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
