Lord’s Day 49, 2017


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

img

Our soul waits for the Lord;
He is our help and our shield.
For our heart rejoices in Him,
Because we trust in His holy name.
Let Your lovingkindness, O Lord, be upon us,
According as we have hoped in You.

—Psalm 33:20–22

Hymn 7. (C. M.)
An evening song.
Isaac Watts (1674–1748)

img

Dread Sov’reign! let my ev’ning song
Like holy incense rise;
Assist the off’rings of my tongue
To reach the lofty skies.

Through all the dangers of the day
Thy hand was still my guard,
And still to drive my wants away
Thy mercy stood prepar’d.]

Perpetual blessings from above
Encompass me around,
But O how few returns of love
Hath my Creator found!

What have I done for him that died
To save my wretched soul?
How are my follies multiplied,
Fast as my minutes roll!

Lord, with this guilty heart of mine
To thy dear cross I flee;
And to thy grace my soul resign,
To be renew’d by thee.

Sprinkled afresh with pard’ning blood,
I lay me down to rest,
As in th’ embraces of my God,
Or on my Saviour’s breast.

The Psalms & Hymns of Isaac Watts. Hymns and Spiritual Songs. Book II: Composed on Divine Subjects (Soli Deo Gloria, 1997).

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.
