Lord’s Day 9, 2020


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

image

Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light. —Matthew 11:28–30

Hymn XVIII.
Leaning on the Beloved.

image

Courage, my soul, Jehovah speaks;
His promise is for thee:
“I never will forsake nor leave
The soul betroth’d to me.”

The cheering word, as heav’nly dew,
My thirsty soul drinks in:
Jesus commands me to rejoice,
Who bore away my sin.

My Saviour’s ever watchful eye,
Is over me for good:
What will he not on me bestow,
Who hath himself bestow’d?

Me to enrich, himself he made
Poor, and of no esteem:
The source, the true foundation, this,
Of all my love to him.

Dear Lord, into thy faithful hands.
My welfare I commit;
And to thy righteousness alone,
For safety I retreat.

Sorrows and agonies and death,
Thou didst endure for me,
When all the sins of God’s elect
Were made to meet on thee.

Tho’ worthy, in myself, of hell
And everlasting shame;
I cannot dread the frown divine,
Accepted in the Lamb.

Still on thy merit, gracious Lord,
Enable me to lean:
Ever in thee may I be found
My hiding-place from sin!

Exult, my soul; thy safety stands
Unshaken as his throne:
His people’s everlasting life
Is founded on his own.

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.
