I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.” The people whom I formed for Myself Will declare My praise. —Isaiah 43:21 Desiring to Praise God. Anne Steele (1717–1778) Almighty author of my frame, To thee my vital pow’rs belong; Thy praise, (delightful, glorious theme!) Demands my heart, my life, my tongue. My heart, my life, my tongue are thine: Oh be thy praise their blest employ! But may my song with angels join? Nor sacred awe forbid the joy? Thy glories, the seraphic lyre On all its strings attempts in vain; Then how shall mortals dare aspire In thought, to try th’ unequal strain? Yet the great Sov’reign of the skies To mortals bends a gracious ear; Nor the mean tribute will despise, If offer’d with a heart sincere. Great God, accept the humble praise, And guide my heart, and guide my tongue, While to thy name I trembling raise The grateful, though unworthy song. —Anne Steele, The Works of Mrs. Anne Steele (Munroe, Francis, and Parker, 1808). 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.

I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.” Who is like the Lord our God, Who is enthroned on high, Who humbles Himself to behold The things that are in heaven and in the earth? —Psalm 113:5–6 Imploring Divine Influences. Anne Steele (1717–1778) My God, whene’er my longing heart Thy praiseful tribute would impart, In vain my tongue with feeble aim, Attempts the glories of thy name. In vain my boldest thoughts arise, I sink to earth and lose the skies; Yet I may still thy grace implore, And low in dust thy name adore. O let thy grace my heart inspire, And raise each languid, weak desire; Thy grace, which condescends to meet The sinner prostrate at thy feet. With humble fear let love unite, And mix devotion with delight; Then shall thy name be all my joy, Thy praise, my constant blest employ. Thy name inspires the harps above With harmony, and praise, and love; That grace, which tunes th’ immortal strings, Looks kindly down on mortal things. O let thy grace guide ev’ry song, And fill my heart and tune my tongue; Then shall the strain harmonious flow, And heav’n’s sweet work begin below. —Anne Steele, The Works of Mrs. Anne Steele (Munroe, Francis, and Parker, 1808). 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.

I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.” All the earth will worship You, And will sing praises to You; They will sing praises to Your name. —Psalm 66:4 Meditating on Creation and Providence. Anne Steele (1717–1778) I. Lord, when my raptur’d thought surveys Creation’s beauties o’er, All nature joins to teach thy praise, And bid my soul adore. II. Where’er I turn my gazing eyes, Thy radiant footsteps shine; Ten thousand pleasing wonders rise, And speak their source divine. III. The living tribes of countless forms, In earth, and sea, and air; The meanest flies, the smallest worms, Almighty pow’r declare. IV. All rose to life at thy command, And wait their daily food From thy paternal, bounteous hand, Exhaustless spring of good! V. The meads, array’d in smiling green, With wholesome herbage crown’d; The fields with corn, a richer scene, Spread thy full bounties round. VI. The fruitful tree, the blooming flow’r, In varied charms appear; Their varied charms display thy pow’r, Thy goodness all declare. VII. The sun’s productive quick’ning beams The growing verdure spread; Refreshing rains and cooling streams His gentle influence aid. VIII. The moon and stars his absent light Supply with borrow’d rays, And deck the sable veil of night, And speak their Maker’s praise. IX. Thy wisdom, pow’r, and goodness, Lord, In all thy works appear: And O let man thy praise record; Man, thy distinguish’d care. X. From thee the breath of life he drew; That breath thy pow’r maintains; Thy tender mercy ever new, His brittle frame sustains. XI. Yet nobler favours claim his praise, Of reason’s light possest; By revelation’s brighter rays Still more divinely blest. XII. Thy providence, his constant guard When threat’ning woes impend, Or will th’ impending dangers ward, Or timely succours lend. XIII. On me that providence has shone With gentle smiling rays; O let my lips and life make known Thy goodness, and thy praise. XIV. All bounteous Lord, thy grace impart; O teach me to improve Thy gifts with ever grateful heart, And crown them with thy love. —Anne Steele, The Works of Mrs. Anne Steele (Munroe, Francis, and Parker, 1808). 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.
