Lord’s Day 40, 2018

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


Praise Him, all His angels;
Praise Him, all His hosts!

—Psalm 148:2

Hymn 27. (L. M.)
Praise ye him, all his angels. Psa. cxlviii. 2.


God! the eternal, awful name
That the whole heav’nly army fears,
That shakes the wide creation’s frame,
And Satan trembles when he hears.

Like flames of fire his servants are,
And light surrounds his dwelling-place;
But, O ye fiery flames! declare
The brighter glories of his face.

’Tis not for such poor worms as we
To speak so infinite a thing;
But your immortal eyes survey
The beauties of your sov’reign King.

Tell how he shows his smiling face,
And clothes all heav’n in bright array;
Triumph and joy run through the place,
And songs eternal as the day.

Speak, for you feel his burning love,
What zeal it spreads through all your frame;
That sacred fire dwells all above,
For we on earth have lost the name.

[Sing of his power and justice too,
That infinite right hand of his
That vanquish’d Satan and his crew,
And thunder drove them down from bliss.]

[What mighty storms of poison’d darts
Were hurl’d upon the rebels there!
What deadly jav’lins nail’d their hearts
Fast to the racks of long despair!]

[Shout to your King, ye heav’nly host,
You that beheld the sinking foe;
Firmly ye stood when they were lost:
Praise the rich grace that kept you so.]

Proclaim his wonders from the skies,
Let ev’ry distant nation hear;
And while you sound his lofty praise,
Let humble mortals bow and fear.

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.
