Lord’s Day 44, 2018


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

image

The afflicted and needy are seeking water,
but there is none,
And their tongue is parched with thirst;
I, the Lord, will answer them Myself,
As the God of Israel I will not forsake them.

—Isaiah 41:17

Thirsting after God.
Isaiah xli. 17.

image

I.

When fainting in the sultry waste,
And parch’d with thirst extreme,
The weary pilgrim longs to taste
The cool, refreshing stream;

II.

Should, sudden, to his hopeless eye
A crystal spring appear,
How would th’ enliv’ning sweet supply
His drooping spirits cheer!

III.

So longs the weary fainting mind,
Oppress’d with sins and woes,
Some soul-reviving spring to find,
Whence heavenly comfort flows.

IV.

Thus sweet the consolations are,
The promises impart;
Here flowing streams of life appear,
To ease the panting heart.

V.

O may I thirst for thee, my God,
With ardent, strong desire;
And still, through all this desart road,
To taste thy grace aspire.

VI.

Then shall my prayer to thee ascend,
A grateful sacrifice;
My plaintive voice thou wilt attend,
And grant me lull supplies.

—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.
