Lord’s Day 7, 2017
I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.”
For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; who will transform the body of our humble state into conformity with the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself.
The New Song.
Horatius Bonar (1808–1889)
Beyond the hills where suns go down,
And brightly beckon as they go;
I see the land of far renown,
The land which I so soon shall know.
Above the dissonance of time,
And discord of its angry words,
I hear the everlasting chime,
The music of unjarring chords.
I bid it welcome; and my haste
To join it cannot brook delay;—
O song of morning, come at last,
And ye who sing it, come away!
O song of light, and dawn, and bliss,
Sound over earth, and fill these skies,
Nor ever, ever, ever cease
Thy soul-entrancing melodies.
Glad song of this disburdened earth,
Which holy voices then shall sing;
Praise for creation’s second birth,
And glory to creation’s King!
—Hymns of Faith and Hope, Second Series (James Nisbet & Co., 1878).
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.
