Lord’s Day 52, 2018


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

We love, because He first loved us.

—1 John 4:19

Hymn 30. (S. M.)
Heavenly joy on earth.

Come, we that love the Lord,
And let our joys be known;
Join in a song with sweet accord,
And thus surround the throne.

[The sorrows of the mind
Be banish’d from the place;
Religion never was design’d
To make our pleasures less.]

Let those refuse to sing
That never knew our God;
But fav’rites of the heav’nly King
May speak their joys abroad.

[The God that rules on high,
And thunders when he please,
That rides upon the stormy sky,
And manages the seas;]

This aweful God is ours,
Our Father and our Love;
He shall send down his heav’nly powers
To carry us above.

There we shall see his face,
And never, never sin;
There, from the rivers of his grace,
Drink endless pleasures in.

Yes, and before we rise
To that immortal state,
The thoughts of such amazing bliss
Should constant joys create.

[The men of grace have found
Glory begun below;
Celestial fruits on earthly ground
From faith and hope may grow.]

The hill of Zion yields
A thousand sacred sweets,
Before we reach the heav’nly fields,
Or walk the golden streets.

Then let our songs abound,
And ev’ry tear be dry;
We’re marching thro’ Immanuel’s ground
To fairer worlds on high.

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.
