Lord’s Day 28, 2018


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

img

In Him we live and move and exist

—Acts 17:28

Hymn 19. (C. M.)
Our frail bodies, and God our Preserver.

img

Let others boast how strong they be,
Nor death nor danger fear;
But we’ll confess, O Lord, to thee,
What feeble things we are.

Fresh as the grass our bodies stand,
And flourish bright and gay;
A blasting wind sweeps o’er the land,
And fades the grass away.

Our life contains a thousand springs,
And dies if one be gone;
Strange, that a harp of thousand strings
Should keep in tune so long!

But ’tis our God supports our frame,
The God that built us first:
Salvation to th’ Almighty name
That rear’d us from the dust.

[He spoke, and straight our hearts and brains
In all their motions rose;
“Let blood,” said he, “flow round the veins,”
And round the veins it flows.

While we have breath, or use our tongues,
Our Maker we’ll adore;
His Spirit moves our heaving lungs,
Or they would breathe no more.]

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.
