Lord’s Day 38, 2008


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

PETITIONARY HYMNS
POEM IX.
On War
imageAugustus Toplady (1740–1778)

Great God, whom heav’n, and earth, and sea
With all their countless hosts, obey,
Upheld by whom the nations stand,
And empires fall at thy command:

Beneath thy long suspended ire
Let papal Antichrist expire;
Thy knowledge spread from sea to sea,
’Till every nation bows to thee.

Then shew thyself the prince of peace,
Make every hostile efforts cease:
All with thy sacred love inspire,
And burn their chariots in the fire.

In sunder break each warlike spear;
Let all the Saviour’s liv’ry wear;
The universal Sabbath prove,
The utmost rest of Christian love!

The world shall then no discord know,
But hand in hand to Canaan go,
Jesus, the peaceful king, adore,
And learn the art of war no more.

Psalme 150
(Geneva Bible)

1 Praise ye the Lord. Praise ye God in his Sanctuarie: prayse ye him in the firmament of his power.
2 Prayse ye him in his mightie Actes: prayse ye him according to his excellent greatnesse.
3 Prayse ye him in the sounde of the trumpet: prayse yee him vpon the viole and the harpe.
4 Prayse ye him with timbrell and flute: praise ye him with virginales and organs.
5 Prayse ye him with sounding cymbales: prayse ye him with high sounding cymbales.
6 Let euery thing that hath breath prayse the Lord. Prayse ye the Lord.

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