Lord’s Day 26, 2018


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

image

In peace I will both lie down and sleep,
For You alone, O Lord, make me to dwell in safety.

—Psalm 4:8

An Evening Hymn.

image

I.

Great God, to thee my ev’ning song
With humble gratitude I raise:
O let thy mercy tune my tongue,
And fill my heart with lively praise.

II.

Mercy, that rich unbounded store,
Does my unnumber’d wants relieve;
Among thy daily, craving poor,
On thy all-bounteous hand I live.

III.

My days unclouded, as they pass,
And ev’ry gently rolling hour,
Are monuments of wond’rous grace,
And witness to thy love and pow’r.

IV.

Thy love and pow’r, (celestial guard)
Preserve me from surrounding harms:
Can danger reach me, while the Lord
Extends his kind protecting arms ?

V.

My num’rous wants are known to thee,
Ere my slow wishes can arise;
Thy goodness measureless and free,
Is ready still with full supplies.

VI.

And yet this thoughtless, wretched heart,
Too oft regardless of thy love,
Ungrateful, can from thee depart,
And fond of trifles vainly rove.

VII.

When calm reflection finds a place,
How vile this wretched heart appears!
Let thy all-subduing grace
Melt it in penitential tears.

VIII.

Seal my forgiveness in the blood
Of Jesus: his dear name alone
I plead for pardon, gracious God,
And kind acceptance at thy throne.

IX.

Let this blest hope my eyelids close,
With sleep refresh my feeble frame;
Safe in thy care may I repose,
And wake with praises to thy name.

—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.
