Lord’s Day 18, 2019

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


He rules by His might forever;
His eyes keep watch on the nations;
Let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.
—Psalm 66:7

XLIV. Rebels against the supreme Sovereign admonished. Psalm lxvi. 7.


The Lord of Glory reigns supremely great,
And o’er Heav’ns Arches builds his royal Seat.
Thro’ Worlds unknown his sov’reign Sway extends,
Nor Space nor Time his boundless Empire ends.
His Eye beholds th’ Affairs of ev’ry Nation,
And reads each Thought through his immense Creation.

Lightnings, and Storms his mighty Word obey,
And Planets roll, where he has mark’d their Way:
Unnumber’d Cherubs vail’d before him stand,
At his first Signal all their Wings expand;
His Praise gives Harmony to all their Voices,
And ev’ry Heart through the full Choir rejoices.

Rebellious Mortals, cease your Tumults vain,
Nor longer such unequal War maintain:
Let Clay with Fellow-Clay in Combate strive,
But dread to brave the Pow’r, by which you live:
With contrite Hearts fall prostrate & adore him,
For, if he frowns, ye perish all before him.

—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.
