Lord’s Day 12, 2019

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


“Cease striving and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”
The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our stronghold. Selah.

—Psalm 46:10–11

XLII. Quietness under Affliction a proper Acknowledgment of GOD. Psalm xlvi. 10‐.


Peace, ’tis the Lord Jehovah’s Hand,
That blasts our Joys in Death;
Changes the Visage once so dear,
And gathers back our Breath.

’Tis he, the Potentate supreme
Of all the Worlds above,
Whose steady Counsels wisely rule,
Nor from their Purpose move.

’Tis he, whose Justice might demand
Our Souls a Sacrifice;
Yet scatters with unwearied Hand
A thousand rich Supplies.

Our Cov’nant-God and Father he
In Christ our bleeding Lord;
Whose Grace can heal the bursting Heart
With one reviving Word.

Fair Garlands of immortal Bliss
He weaves for ev’ry Brow;
And shall tumultuous Passions rise,
If he correct us now?

Silent I own Jehovah’s Name;
I kiss thy scourging Hand;
And yield my Comforts, and my Life
To thy supreme Command.

—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.
