Lord’s Day 12, 2017

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


Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

—1 Peter 1:3–5

Bless the Lord.
Horatius Bonar (1808–1889)

“Laudet Deum omnis os,
 Quia patet nova dos,
 De excelso cadit ros,
 Et in terra crescit flos
 Cujus odor sanat nos.”
—Hymnus De Vita Christi

Speak, lips of mine!
And tell abroad
The praises of thy God.
Speak, stammering tongue!
In gladdest tone,
Make his high praises known.

Speak, sea and earth!
Heaven’s utmost star
Speak from your realms afar!
Take up the note,
And send it round
Creation’s farthest bound.

Speak, heaven of heavens!
Wherein our God
Has made his bright abode.
Speak, angels speak!
In songs proclaim
His everlasting name.

Speak, son of dust!
Thy flesh he took,
And heaven for thee forsook.
Speak, child of death!
Thy death he died,
Bless thou the Crucified!

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.
