Lord’s Day 38, 2018


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

image

Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.

—Matthew 11:28–30

Weary Souls Invited to Rest
Mat. xi. 28.

image

I.

Come weary souls with sin distrest,
The Saviour offers heav’nly rest;
The kind, the gracious call obey,
And cast your gloomy fears away.

II.

Oppress’d with guilt, a painful load,
O come, and spread your woes abroad;
Divine compassion, mighty love,
Will all the painful load remove.

III.

Here mercy’s boundless ocean flows,
To cleanse your guilt and heal your woes;
Pardon, and life, and endless peace—
How rich the gift! how free the grace!

IV.

Lord, we accept with thankful heart,
The hope thy gracious words impart;
We come with trembling, yet rejoice,
And bless the kind inviting voice.

V.

Dear Saviour, let thy pow’rful love
Confirm our faith, our fears remove,
And sweetly influence ev’ry breast.
And guide us to eternal rest.

—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.
