Lord’s Day 30, 2019


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

image

Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of eternal life.” —John 6:68

Life and Safety in Christ Alone.
John vi. 68.

image

I.

Thou only sovereign of my heart,
My refuge, my almighty friend,—
And can my soul from thee depart,
On whom alone my hopes depend?

II.

Whither, ah! whither shall I go,
A wretched wand’rer from my Lord?
Can this dark world of sin and woe
One glimpse of happiness afford?

III.

Eternal life thy words impart,
On these my fainting spirit lives;
Here sweeter comforts cheer my heart,
Than all the round of nature gives.

IV.

Let earth’s alluring joys combine,
While thou art near, in vain they call;
One smile, one blissful smile of thine,
My dearest Lord, outweighs them all.

V.

Thy name my inmost pow’rs adore,
Thou art my life, my joy, my care:
Depart from thee—’tis death,—’tis more,
Tis endless ruin, deep despair.

VI.

Low at thy feet my soul would lie,
Here safety dwells, and peace divine;
Still let me live beneath thine eye,
For life, eternal life is thine.

—Anne Steele, The Works of Mrs. Anne Steele (Munroe, Francis, and Parker, 1808).

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.
