Lord’s Day 53, 2017


Then Samuel took a stone and set it between Mizpah and Shen, and named it Ebenezer, saying, “Thus far the Lord has helped us.”

—1 Samuel 7:12

XIX. Ebenezer; or God’s helping Hand review’d and acknowledged. 1 Sam. vii. 12. For New-Year’s Day.
Philip Doddridge (1702–1751)


My helper God! I bless his Name:
The same his Power, his Grace the same.
The Tokens of his friendly Care
Open, and crown, and close the Year.

I ’midst ten thousand Dangers stand,
Supported by his guardian Hand;
And see, when I survey my Ways,
Ten thousand Monuments of Praise.

Thus far his Arm has led me on;
Thus far I make his Mercy known;
And, while I tread this desart Land,
New Mercies shall new Songs demand.

My greateful Soul, on Jordan’s Shore,
Shall raise one sacred Pillar more:
Then bear, in his bright Courts above,
Inscriptions of immortal Love.

—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.
