Lord’s Day 36, 2018

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


Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and anointed us is God, who also sealed us and gave us the Spirit in our hearts as a pledge.

—2 Corinthians 1:21–22

Hymn V.
The Method of Salvation.



The Father we bless,
Whose distinguishing grace,
Selected a people to shew forth thy praise;
Nor is thy love known,
By election alone;
For O, thou hast added the gift of thy Son.

The goodness in vain
We attempt to explain,
Which found and accepted a ransom for men;
Great Surety of thine,
Thou didst not decline
To concur with the Father’s most gracious design.

To Jesus our friend,
Our thanks shall ascend,
Who saves to the utmost, and loves to the end;
Our ransom he paid;
In his merit array’d
We attain to the glory for which we were made.

Sweet Spirit of grace,
Thy mercy we bless,
For thy eminent share in the council of peace;
Great agent divine,
To restore us is thine,
And cause us afresh in thy likeness to shine.

O God, ’tis thy part,
To convince and convert,
To give a new life, and create a new heart;
By thy presence and grace
We ’re upheld in our race,
And are kept in thy love to the end of our days.

Father, Spirit, and Son,
Agree thus in One,
The salvation of those he has mark’d for his own;
Let us too agree
To glorify thee,
Thou ineffable One, thou adorable Three.

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.
