Lord’s Day 40, 2008

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

by Horatius Bonar (1808–1889)


Praises to Him who built the hills;
Praises to Him the streams who fills;
Praises to Him who lights each star
That sparkles in the blue afar!

Praises to Him who wakes the morn,
And bids it glow with beams new-born;
Who draws the shadows of the night,
Like curtains, o’er our wearied sight!

Praises to Him whose love has given,
In Christ His Son, the life of heaven;
Who for our darkness gives us light,
And turns to day the deepest night!

Praises to Him, in grace who came
To bear our woe, and sin, and shame;
Who lived to die, who died to rise,
The God-accepted sacrifice!

Praises to Him the chain who broke,
Opened the prison, burst the yoke,
Sent forth its captives, glad and free,
Heirs of the endless liberty!

Praises to Him who shed abroad
Within our hearts the love of God;
The Spirit of all truth and peace,
Fountain of joy and holiness!

To Father, Son and Spirit now
The hands we lift, the knees we bow;
To Jah-Jehovah thus we raise
The sinner’s endless song of endless praise!

—Horatius Bonar, Hymns of Faith and Hope, First Series (James Nisbet & Co., 1878).

Psalme 14 (Geneva Bible)
To him that excelleth. A Psalme of Dauid.

1 The foole hath said in his heart, There is no God: they haue corrupted, and done an abominable worke: there is none that doeth good.
2 The Lord looked downe from heauen vpon the children of men, to see if there were any that would vnderstand, and seeke God.
3 All are gone out of the way: they are all corrupt: there is none that doeth good, no not one.
4 Doe not all the workers of iniquitie know that they eate vp my people, as they eate bread? they call not vpon the Lord.
5 There they shall be taken with feare, because God is in the generation of the iust.
6 You haue made a mocke at the counsell of the poore, because the Lord is his trust.
7 Oh giue saluation vnto Israel out of Zion: when the Lord turneth the captiuitie of his people, then Iaakob shall reioyce, and Israel shall be glad.

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