Lord’s Day 3, 2020

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 XVII.
Christ the light of his people.


I lift my heart and eyes to thee,
Jesus, thou unextinguish’d light.
My guardian stay and leader be,
My cloud by day, my fire by night.

Glory of Israel, shine within;
Unshadow’d, uneclips’d appear:
With beams of grace exhale my sin;
Break forth, thou bright and morning star,

The earth a trackless lab’rinth is;
Be thou my thread and faithful clue!
Thy kingdom and thy righteousness.
The only objects I pursue.

Light of the Gentiles, thee I hail;
Essential truth, thyself impart!
Spirit of light, his face reveal,
And set thy signet on my heart.

Thy office ’tis t’ enlighten man,
And point him to the heav’nly prize;
The hidden things of God t’ explain,
And shine the darkness from our eyes.

Witness of Christ within my heart,
My int’rest in his love display;
My int’rest in that better part,
Which never can be torn away.

In bondage ’till thou set me free,
Fain would I know my part in him:
The brightness of his rising see,
And bask in thy meridian beam.

Shine then, thou uncreated ray
If but a moment thou withdraw,
That moment sees me go astray,
That moment sees me break thy law.

The word and Spirit both conspire
To tell thy Church she is forgiv’n;
And lift her daily high’r and high’r,
’Till all her joys are crown’d with heav’n.

To that bless’d realm of bright repose;
Thou wilt conduct my weary feet;
Where peace no interruption knows,
And where my sun shall never set.

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.
