Lord’s Day 34, 2019

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


Thus says the Lord, “Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches; but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord who exercises lovingkindness, justice and righteousness on earth; for I delight in these things,” declares the Lord. —Jeremiah 9:3–4

Hymn XV.
All in all.


Compared with Christ, in all beside
No comeliness I see:
The one thing needful, dearest Lord,
Is to be one with thee.

The sense of our expiring love,
Into my soul convey;
Thyself bestow; for thee alone,
My all in all, I pray.

Less than thyself will not suffice
My comfort to restore
More than thyself I cannot crave;
And thou canst give no more.

Love of my God, for him again.
With love intense I’ll burn:
Chosen of thee ’ere time began,
I’ll choose thee in return.

Whate’er consist not with thy love,
O teach me to resign;
I’m rich to all th’ intents of bliss,
If thou, O God, art mine.

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.
