Lord’s Day 25, 2017


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

The people whom I formed for Myself
Will declare My praise.

—Isaiah 43:21

Desiring to Praise God.
Anne Steele (1717–1778)

image

Almighty author of my frame,
To thee my vital pow’rs belong;
Thy praise, (delightful, glorious theme!)
Demands my heart, my life, my tongue.

My heart, my life, my tongue are thine:
Oh be thy praise their blest employ!
But may my song with angels join?
Nor sacred awe forbid the joy?

Thy glories, the seraphic lyre
On all its strings attempts in vain;
Then how shall mortals dare aspire
In thought, to try th’ unequal strain?

Yet the great Sov’reign of the skies
To mortals bends a gracious ear;
Nor the mean tribute will despise,
If offer’d with a heart sincere.

Great God, accept the humble praise,
And guide my heart, and guide my tongue,
While to thy name I trembling raise
The grateful, though unworthy song.

—Anne Steele, The Works of Mrs. Anne Steele (Munroe, Francis, and Parker, 1808).

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.
