Lord’s Day 5, 2014

I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.”


Then Aaron shall lay both of his hands on the head of the live goat, and confess over it all the iniquities of the sons of Israel and all their transgressions in regard to all their sins; and he shall lay them on the head of the goat and send it away into the wilderness by the hand of a man who stands in readiness. The goat shall bear on itself all their iniquities to a solitary land; and he shall release the goat in the wilderness.

—Leviticus 16:21–22

Hymns of Thanksgiving
Hymn XIV.
Thanksgiving for the Suffering of Christ.
Augustus Toplady (1740–1778)

O thou who didst thy glory leave
Apostate sinners to retrieve
From nature’s deadly fall;
He thou hast purchased with a price,
Nor shall my crimes in judgment rise,
For thou hast borne them all.

Jesus was punished in my stead,
Without the gate my Surety bled,
To expiate my stain;
On earth the Godhead deign’d to dwell,
And made of infinite avail,
The suff’rings of the man.

And was he for his rebels giv’n?
He was: th’ incarnate King of heav’n
Did for his foes expire;
Amaz’d, O earth, the tidings hear—
He bore, that we might never bear,
His Father’s righteous ire.

Ye saints, the man of sorrows bless,
The God for your unrighteousness
Deputed to atone:
Praise him till, with the heav’nly throng,
Ye sing the never-ending song,
And see him on his throne.

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
