Lord’s Day 33, 2017


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

image

Who is like the Lord our God,
Who is enthroned on high,
Who humbles Himself to behold
The things that are in heaven and in the earth?

—Psalm 113:5–6

Imploring Divine Influences.
Anne Steele (1717–1778)

image

My God, whene’er my longing heart
Thy praiseful tribute would impart,
In vain my tongue with feeble aim,
Attempts the glories of thy name.

In vain my boldest thoughts arise,
I sink to earth and lose the skies;
Yet I may still thy grace implore,
And low in dust thy name adore.

O let thy grace my heart inspire,
And raise each languid, weak desire;
Thy grace, which condescends to meet
The sinner prostrate at thy feet.

With humble fear let love unite,
And mix devotion with delight;
Then shall thy name be all my joy,
Thy praise, my constant blest employ.

Thy name inspires the harps above
With harmony, and praise, and love;
That grace, which tunes th’ immortal strings,
Looks kindly down on mortal things.

O let thy grace guide ev’ry song,
And fill my heart and tune my tongue;
Then shall the strain harmonious flow,
And heav’n’s sweet work begin below.

—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.
