Lord’s Day 27, 2018

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


The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge;
My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

—Psalm 18:2

XXXI. Triumph in God’s protection. Psalm xviii. 2.


Legions of foes beset me round,
While marching o’er this dang’rous ground;
Yet in Jehovah’s aid I trust,
And in his pow’r superior boast.

My buckler he: his shield is spread
To cover this defenceless head:
Now let the fiercest foes assail,
Their darts, I count, as rattling hail.

He is my rock, and he my tow’r;
The base how firm! the walls how sure!
The battlements how high they rise!
And hide their summits in the skies.

Deliv’rances to God belong;
He is my strength, and he my song;
The horn of my salvation he,
And all my foes dispers’d shall flee.

Thro’ the long march my lips shall sing
My great protector, and my king,
Till Zion’s mount my feet ascend,
And all my painful warfare end.

Rais’d on the shining turrets there
Thro’ all the prospect wide, and fair,
A land of peace his hosts survey,
And bless the grace, that led the way.

—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.
