Lord’s Day 51, 2018


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

image

Let all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You;
Let those who love Your salvation say continually,
“Lord be magnified!”

—Psalm 40:16

XL. God magnified by those that love his salvation. Psalm xl. 16.

image

God of salvation, we adore
Thy saving love, thy saving pow’r;
And to our utmost stretch of thought
Hail the redemption thou hast wrought.

We love the stroke, that breaks our chain,
The sword, by which our sins are slain;
And, while abas’d in dust we bow,
We sing the grace, that lays us low.

Perish each thought of human pride:
Let God be magnified:
His glory let the heav’ns resound
Shouted from earth’s remotest bound.

Saints, who his full salvation know,
Saints, who but taste it here below,
Join ev’ry angel’s’voiceto raise
Continu’d never-ending praise.

—Philip Doddridge, Hymns Founded on Various Texts in the Holy Scriptures (Salop, 1755).

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.
