Lord’s Day 10, 2018

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


He will sing to men and say,
“I have sinned and perverted what is right,
And it is not proper for me.
“He has redeemed my soul from going to the pit,
And my life shall see the light.”

—Job 33:27–28

XXVIII. The penitent brought back from the pit. Job xxxiii. 27, 28.


The Lord from his exalted throne,
In majesty array’d,
Looks with a melting pity down
On all, that seek his aid.

When, touch’d with penitent remorse,
Our follies past we mourn,
With what a tenderness of love
He meets our first return!

From heav’n he sent his only son
To ransom us with blood,
To snatch us from the burning pit,
When on it’s brink we stood.

From death and hell he leads us up
By a delightful Way;
And the bright beams of endless life
Does round our path display.

Great God, we wonder, and adore;
And, to exalt such grace,
We long to learn the songs of heav’n
E’er yet we reach the place.

—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.
