Lord’s Day 19, 2017


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

image

Aaron shall carry the names of the sons of Israel in the breastpiece of judgment over his heart when he enters the holy place, for a memorial before the Lord continually.

—Exodus 28:29

VIII. Christ’s Intercession typified by Aaron’s Breast-plate. Exodus xxviii. 29.
Philip Doddridge (1702–1751)

image

Now let our chearful Eyes survey
Our great High-Priest above,
And celebrate his constant Care,
And sympathetic Love.

Tho’ rais’d to a superior Throne,
Where Angels bow around,
And high o’er all the shining Train
With matchless Honours crown’d;

The Names of all his Saints he bears
Deep graven on his Heart;
Nor shall the meanest Christian say,
That he hath lost his Part.

Those Characters shall fair abide,
Our everlasting Trust,
When Gems, and Monuments, and Crowns
Are moulder’d down to Dust.

So, Gracious Saviour, on my Breast,
May thy dear Name be worn,
A sacred Ornament and Guard,
To endless Ages borne.

—Philip Doddridge, Hymns Founded on Various Texts in the Holy Scriptures (Salop, 1755).

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.
