Lord’s Day 16, 2019

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


No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it. —1 Corinthians 10:13

Jesus, Help


Oh, help me o’er this river,
Thou who hast crossed before;
Oh help, or I shall never
Reach the further shore.

Its waters swell and eddy;
I fall, I sink, I’m lost:
Oh, keep my footsteps steady,
Till I have safely crossed.

Stretch out thy hand to save me,
As Thou hast often done;
For if Thou wilt not have me,
Then I am wholly gone.

If Thou, dear Lord, wilt have me,
If Thou wilt help my need;
Ah, this will save, will save me,
And I am saved indeed.

A word from Thee will do it,
One word, one word, no more;
I shall be carried through it
And landed on the shore.

Oh, help me through this trial,
Thou tried and tempted One;
cannot take denial;—
Thou must, or I am gone.

’Tis Thou,—Thou, Saviour, only,
That can suffice for me,
For I am tried and lonely,
I have no friend but Thee.

—Horatius Bonar, Hymns of Faith and Hope, Third 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.
