Lord’s Day 17, 2016


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

image

Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.

—James 1:12

The Blessing of Hope in Death
Samuel Davies (1723–1761)

image

Yes; I must bow my head and die;
What then can bear my spirit up?
In nature’s last extremity,
Who can afford one ray of hope?

Then all created comforts fail,
And earth speaks nothing but despair;
And you, my friends, must bid farewell,
And leave your fellow-traveller.

Yet, Savior, Thine almighty power
Even then can sure support afford,
Even then that hope shall smile secure,
That's now supported by Thy Word.

Searcher of hearts, oh, try me now,
Nor let me build upon the sand;
Oh, teach me now myself to know,
That I may then the trial stand.

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.
