Lord’s Day 21, 2019


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

image

Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus —Hebrews 10:19

Hymn XIII.
Hebrews x. 19. We have boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus.

image

O precious blood, O glorious death,
By which the sinner lives!
When stung with sin, this blood we view,
And all our joy revives.

We flourish as the water’d herb,
Who keep this blood in sight,
The blood that chases our distress,
And makes our garments white.

The blood that purchas’d our release,
And washes out our stains,
We challenge earth and hell to shew
A sin it cannot cleanse.

Our scarlet crimes are made as wool,
And we brought nigh to God:
Thanks to that wrath-appeasing death;
That heav’n-procuring blood.

The blood that makes his glorious Church
From ev’ry blemish free;
And, O the riches of his love!
He pour’d it out for me.

Guilty and worthless as I am,
It all for me was giv’n;
And boldness, through his blood, I have
To enter into heav’n.

Thither, in my great Surety’s right,
I surely shall be brought
He could not agonize in vain,
Nor spend his strength for nought.

He wills that I, and all his sheep,
Should reign with him in bliss;
And pow’r he has to execute
Whate’er his will decrees.

The Father’s everlasting love
And Jesus’ precious blood
Shall be our endless themes of praise;
In yonder blest abode.

In patience let us then possess
Our souls, ’till he appear:
Our head already is in heav’n,
And we shall soon be there.

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.
