Lord’s Day 12, 2014


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

Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne and the living creatures and the elders; and the number of them was myriads of myriads, and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice,

“Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing.”

And every created thing which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all things in them, I heard saying,

“To Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, be blessing and honor and glory and dominion forever and ever.”

And the four living creatures kept saying, “Amen.” And the elders fell down and worshiped.

—Revelation 5:11–14

A Psalm of Praise
Richard Baxter (1615–1691)

Ye holy angels bright, who stand before God’s throne
And dwell in glorious light, praise ye the Lord each one.
Assist our song, or else the theme too high doth seem for mortal tongue.

Ye blessed souls at rest, that see your Savior’s face,
Whose glory, e’en the least, is far above our grace.
God’s praises sound, as in His sight with sweet delight you do abound.

Ye saints, who toil below, adore your heavenly King,
And onward as ye go some joyful anthem sing;
Take what He gives and praise Him still, through good or ill, Who ever lives!

All nations of the earth, extol the world’s great King:
With melody and mirth His glorious praises sing,
For He still reigns, and will bring low the proudest foe that Him disdains.

Sing forth Jehovah’s praise, ye saints, that on Him call!
Him magnify always, His holy churches all!
In Him rejoice and there proclaim His holy Name with sounding voice.

My soul, bear thou thy part, triumph in God above,
And with a well tuned heart sing thou the songs of love.
And all my days let no distress nor fears suppress His joyful praise.

Away, distrustful care! I have Thy promise, Lord,
To banish all despair, I have Thine oath and Word:
And therefore I shall see Thy face and there Thy grace shall magnify.

With Thy triumphant flock then I shall numbered be;
Built on th’eternal Rock, His glory shall we see.
The heav’ns so high with praise shall ring and all shall sing in harmony.

Worthy Is the Lamb (Soli Deo Gloria, 2004).

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


Please don’t miss worshiping with your local congregation
if you can possibly help it.
But if you’re in need of a good sermon, try these.
