Lord’s Day 18, 2017


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

image

I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me will not remain in darkness.

—John 12:46

The Cry of the Weary.
Horatius Bonar (1808–1889)

image

O Light of light, shine in!
Cast out this night of sin;
Create true day within;
O Light of light, shine in!

O Joy of joys, come in!
End thou this grief of sin;
Create calm peace within;
O Joy of joys, come in!

O Life of life, pour in!
Expel this death of sin;
Awake true life within;
O Life of life, pour in!

O Love of love, flow in!
This hateful root of sin
Pluck up, destroy within;
O Love of love, flow in!

O Heaven of heavens, descend!
This cloudy curtain rend,
And all earth’s turmoil end,
O Heaven of heavens, descend!

My God and Lord, Oh come!
Of joys the Joy and Sum,
Make in this heart thy home;
My God and Lord, Oh come!

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.
