Lord’s Day 22, 2017

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


Behold, I long for Your precepts;
Revive me through Your righteousness.
May Your lovingkindnesses also come to me, O Lord,
Your salvation according to Your word;
So I will have an answer for him who reproaches me,
For I trust in Your word.
And do not take the word of truth utterly out of my mouth,
For I wait for Your ordinances.
So I will keep Your law continually,
Forever and ever.
And I will walk at liberty,
For I seek Your precepts.
I will also speak of Your testimonies before kings
And shall not be ashamed.
I shall delight in Your commandments,
Which I love.
And I shall lift up my hands to Your commandments,
Which I love;
And I will meditate on Your statutes.
Remember the word to Your servant,
In which You have made me hope.

—Psalm 119:40–49

Paraphrases on Select Parts of Holy Writ
Para. XV.
Psalm cxix. From the 40th Verse to the 49th.
Augustus Toplady (1740–1778)


Let thy loving mercy, Lord,
Come also unto me;
Now according to thy word,
My present Saviour be:
Unbelievers then no more
Shall against my hope blaspheme;
Forc’d to own, “The mighty pow’r
Of God hath rescu’d him.”

In thy word my trust I place,
And humbly urge my claim,
’Till I of thy saving grace,
A living witness am:
Give me, Lord, thyself to know,
Then in me thy word fulfil,
To walk in all things here below,
According to thy will.

Seeking now in steadfast faith,
I wait a word from thee;
Bring my feet into the path
Of perfect liberty;
Then, when I the path have found,
Un-asham’d thy truth I’ll shew:
Kings shall hear the joyful sound,
And seek salvation too.

My delight is in thy word
Which I have lov’d of old,
Dearer is thy promise. Lord,
To me than mines of gold:
Up to thee my hands I lift,
’Till I of thy grace receive;
Give the never changing gift,
Thy full redemption give.

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.
