Lord’s Day 4, 2009

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

JEHOVAH–ROPHI, I am the Lord that healeth thee. Ex. xv.
by William Cowper (1731–1800)


HEAL us, Emmanuel, here we are,
   Waiting to feel thy touch;
Deep wounded souls to thee repair,
   And, Savior we are such.

Our faith is feeble we confess,
   We faintly trust thy word;
But wilt thou pity us the less?
   Be that far from thee, Lord!

Remember him who once apply’d
   With trembling for relief;
Lord, I believe, with tears he cry’d,
   help my unbelief.”

She too, who touch’d thee in the press,
   And healing virtue stole;
Was answer’d, “Daughter, go in peace,
   Thy faith hath made thee whole.”

Conceal’d amid the gath’ring throng,
   She would have shunn’d thy view;
And if her faith was firm and strong,
   Had strong misgivings too.

Like her, with hopes and fears, we come,
   To touch thee if we may;
O! send us not despairing home,
   Send none unheal’d away.

—from Olney Hymns. Book I: On select Passages of Scripture.

Psalme 119:25–32
(Geneva Bible)

25 My soule cleaueth to the dust: quicken me according to thy worde.
26 I haue declared my waies, and thou heardest me: teache me thy statutes.
27 Make me to vnderstand ye way of thy precepts, and I will meditate in thy wondrous workes.
28 My soule melteth for heauinesse: raise mee vp according vnto thy worde.
29 Take from mee the way of lying, and graunt me graciously thy Lawe.
30 I haue chosen the way of trueth, and thy iudgements haue I laied before me.
31 I haue cleaued to thy testimonies, O Lord: confound me not.
32 I will runne the way of thy commandements, when thou shalt enlarge mine heart.
