Lord’s Day 12, 2020

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


Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us;
And confirm for us the work of our hands;
Yes, confirm the work of our hands.
—Psalm 90:17

LIII. Joy and Prosperity from the blessing and presence of God. Psalm xc. 17.


Shine on our souls, eternal God,
With rays of beauty shine:
O let thy favour crown our days,
And all their round be thine.

Did we not raise our hands to thee,
Our hands might toil in vain;
Small joy success itself could give,
If thou thy love restrain.

With thee let ev’ry week begin,
With thee each day be spent,
For thee each fleeting hour improv’d,
Since each by thee is lent.

Thus cheer us thro’ this desart road,
Till all our labours cease;
And heaven refresh our weary souls
With everlasting peace.

—Philip Doddridge, Hymns Founded on Various Texts in the Holy Scriptures (Salop, 1755).

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.
