Lord’s Day 32, 2019


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

God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much better than the angels, as He has inherited a more excellent name than they. —Hebrews 1:1–4

Hymn 43. (L. M.)
Christ’s sufferings and glory.

Now for a tune of lofty praise
To great Jehovah’s equal Son!
Awake, my voice, in heav’nly lays
Tell the loud wonders he hath done.

Sing how he left the worlds of light,
And the bright robes he wore above;
How swift and joyful was his flight,
On wings of everlasting love!

[Down to this base, this sinful earth,
He came to raise our nature high;
He came t’ atone Almighty wrath;
Jesus, the God, was born to die.]

[Hell and its lions roar’d around,
His precious blood the monsters spilt;
While weighty sorrows press’d him down,
Large as the loads of all our guilt.]

Deep in the shades of gloomy death
Th’ almighty Captive pris’ner lay,
Th’ almighty Captive left the earth,
And rose to everlasting day.

Lift up your eyes, ye sons of light,
Up to his throne of shining grace;
See what immortal glories sit
Round the sweet beauties of his face!

Amongst a thousand harps and songs,
Jesus, the God, exalted reigns;
His sacred name fills all their tongues,
And echoes through the heav’nly plains.

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.
