Lord’s Day 25, 2019


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

image

Then they spoke against God;
They said, “Can God prepare a table in the wilderness?
“Behold, He struck the rock so that waters gushed out,
And streams were overflowing;
Can He give bread also?
Will He provide meat for His people?”
—Psalm 78:19–20

XLVII. God furnishing a Table in the Wilderness. Psalm lxxviii. 19, 20.

image

Parent of universal Good!
We own thy bounteous Hand,
Which does so rich a Table spread,
Ev’n in this desart Land.

Struck by thy Pow’r the flinty Rocks
In gushing Torrents flow;
The feather’d Wand’rers of the Air
Thy guiding Instinct know.

The pregnant Clouds at thy Command
Rain down delicious Bread;
And by light Drops of pearly Dew
Are num’rous Armies fed.

Supported thus, thine Israel march’d
The promis’d Land to gain:
And shall thy Children now begin
To seek their God in vain?

Are all thy Stores exhausted now?
Or does thy Mercy fail?
That Faith should languish in our Breasts
And anxious Cares prevail?

Ye base unworthy Fears, be gone,
And wide disperse in Air;
Then may I feel my Father’s Rod,
When I suspect his Care.

—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.
