Lord’s Day 19, 2019


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

Jacob said to Pharaoh, “The years of my sojourning are one hundred and thirty; few and unpleasant have been the years of my life, nor have they attained the years that my fathers lived during the days of their sojourning.” —Genesis 47:9

Hymn 39. (C. M.)
The shortness and misery of life.

img

Our days, alas! our mortal days
Are short and wretched too;
“Evil and few,” the patriarch says,
And well the patriarch knew.

’Tis but at best a narrow bound
That Heav’n allows to men,
And pains and sins run through the round
Of threescore years and ten.

Well, if ye must be sad and few,
Run on, my days, in haste;
Moments of sin and months of woe,
Ye cannot fly too fast.

Let heav’nly love prepare my soul,
And call her to the skies,
Where years of long salvation roll,
And glory never dies.

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.
