Lord’s Day 49, 2018

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


I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.
He will not allow your foot to slip;
He who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, He who keeps Israel
Will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord is your keeper;
The Lord is your shade on your right hand.
The sun will not smite you by day,
Nor the moon by night.
The Lord will protect you from all evil;
He will keep your soul.
The Lord will guard your going out and your coming in
From this time forth and forever.

—Psalm 21

Night Hymn Before The Sabbath


In the dark and silent night,
Ere has broke the lonely light,
We arise, to thee to pay,
Lord, the service of this day.

Holy Comforter, to thee
Our glad praises offer we;
With the eternal Father one,
One with the eternal Son.

Pity this frail flesh of ours,
Which, with all his subtle powers,
The old tempter would assail;—
Let him not, O Lord, prevail.

Lord, to thee the flock pertains;
Let it not be held in chains;
Thou, O Jesus, with thy blood,
Hast redeemed that flock to God.

Loving, gracious Shepherd, keep
Watch o’er these thy wand’ring sheep;
Bring them to the fold above
On the shoulders of thy love.

Smite the hellish enemy,
Bid the Prince of darkness flee;
Drive the robber-fiend away,
From his jaws, Oh pluck the prey.

Triumph now, O Christ, our Lord!
Angel-choirs, with glad accord,
Sound the praises of our King,
Holy, holy, holy, sing.

Glory to the Father give;
Glory to the equal Son;
Glory to the Spirit give,
While eternal ages run.

—Horatius Bonar, Hymns of Faith and Hope, Second Series (James Nisbet & Co., 1878).

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.
