Lord’s Day 2, 2009

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


O Divine Redeemer,


Great was thy goodness
in undertaking my redemption,
         in consenting to be made sin for me,
         in conquering all my foes;
Great was thy strength
   in enduring the extremities of divine wrath
   in taking away the load of my iniquities
Great was thy love
   in manifesting thyself alive,
   in showing thy sacred wounds,
      that every fear might vanish,
      and every doubt be removed;
Great was thy mercy
   in ascending to heaven
   in being crowned and enthroned
      there to intercede for me,
      there to succour me in temptation,
      there to open the eternal book,
      there to receive me finally to thyself;
Great was thy wisdom
   in devising this means of salvation;
Bathe my soul in rich consolations
   of thy resurrection life;
Great was thy grace
   in commanding me to come hand in hand
      with thee to the Father,
      to be knit to him eternally,
      to discover in him my rest,
      to find in him my peace,
      to behold his glory,
      to honor him who is alone worthy;
   in giving me the Spirit as teacher, guide,
   that I may live repenting of sin,
   conquer Satan,
   find victory in life.
When thou art absent all sorrows are here,
When thou art present all blessings are mine.

—from The Valley of Vision, Arthur Bennett, editor (Banner of Truth Trust, 2002).

Psalme 119:9–16
(Geneva Bible)

9 Wherewith shall a yong man redresse his waie? in taking heede thereto according to thy woorde.
10 With my whole heart haue I sought thee: let me not wander from thy commandements.
11 I haue hid thy promise in mine heart, that I might not sinne against thee.
12 Blessed art thou, O Lord: teache mee thy statutes.
13 With my lippes haue I declared all the iudgements of thy mouth.
14 I haue had as great delight in the way of thy testimonies, as in all riches.
15 I will meditate in thy precepts, and consider thy waies.
16 I will delite in thy statutes, and I will not forget thy worde.
