“Grace we sing…”

Born Again

“Soft the Voice
of Mercy Sounded”

Soft the voice of mercy sounded,
Sweet as music to the ear;
Grace abounds where sin abounded,
This the word that soothed our fear;
Grace, the sweetest sound we know,
Grace to sinners here below.

Grace we sing, God’s grace through Jesus;
Grace, the spring of peace to man;
Grace, that from each sorrow frees us;
Grace, too high for thought to scan;
Grace, the theme of God’s own love;
Grace, the theme all themes above.

❤️ Isaiah 46

46Bel boweth down, Nebo stoopeth, their idols were upon the beasts, and upon the cattle: your carriages were heavy loaden; they are a burden to the weary beast.

2They stoop, they bow down together; they could not deliver the burden, but themselves are gone into captivity.

3Hearken unto me, O house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel, which are borne by me from the belly, which are carried from the womb:

4And even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you.

5To whom will ye liken me, and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be like?

“God Answers Prayer”

I know not by what methods rare,
But this I know, God answers prayers.
I know that He has given His Word,
Which tells me prayer is always heard,
And will be answered, soon or late,
And so I pray and calmly wait.
I know not if the blessing sought
Will come in just the way I thought;
But leave my prayers with Him alone,
Whose will is wiser than my own,
Assured that He will grant my quest,
Or send some answer far more blest.

The household of faith

Precious Sheep Of Renown

Through the holy spirit of God we are of the household of faith, whose foundation is built upon the apostles and prophet’s. This house stands by the strength and love of God! (Ephesians 2:18-22) 18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. 19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; 20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; 21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: 22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

How we conduct our household says a lot about if God is in the center of it. In Joshua’ address he made it perfectly clear he and his…

“Give Me Thy Strength”

Give meThystrength for my day, Lord,
That whersoe’er I go,
There shall no danger daunt me
And I shall fear no foe;
So shall no task o’ercome me,
So shall no trial fret,
So shall I walk unwearied
The path where my feet are set;
So shall I find no burden
Greater than I can bear,
So shall I have a courage
Equal to all my care;
So shall no grief o’erwhelm me,
So shall no wave o’erflow;
Give me Thy strength for my day, Lord,
Cover my weakness so.”

“God The Provider”

Who shall tell our untold need,
Deeply felt, though scarely known!
Who the hungering soul can feed,
Guard, and guide, but God alone?
Blessed promise! while we see
Earthly friends must powerless be,
Earthly fountains quickly dry:
God shall all your need supply.

He hath said it– so we know
Nothing less can we receive.
Oh that thankful love may glow
While we restfully believe–
Ask not how, but trust Him still;
Ask not when, but wait His will:
Simply on His word rely,
God shall all your need supply.

Through the whole of life’s long way,
Outward, inward need we trace;
Need arising day by day,
Patience, wisdom, strength, and grace.
Needing Jesus most of all,
Full of need, on Him we call;
Then how gracious His reply,
God shall all your need supply!

Great our need, but greater far
Is our Father’s loving power;

Torrents of Love

He Hath Said

…his father saw him, and was moved with compassion, and ran, and fell upon his neck, and covered him with kisses. – Luke 15:20 (DBY)

In the Revised Version, if you will kindly look at the margin, you will find that the text there reads, “And kissed him much.” This is a very good translation of the Greek, which might bear the meaning, “Kissed him earnestly,” or “Kissed him eagerly,” or “Kissed him often.”…God never gives an expression of love without feeling it in His infinite heart. God will never give a Judas-kiss, and betray those whom He embraces. There is no hypocrisy with God; He never kisses those for whom He has no love. Oh, how God loves the sinner! You who repent, and come to Him, will discover how greatly He loves you. There is no measuring the love He bears towards you. He has loved you before…

At Our Side and in Our Place

He Hath Said

Lo, I come. – Psalm 40:7

And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. – Hebrews 9:22

You have been your own confidence. What you could feel, or do, or think, or resolve, had become the ground of your confidence; but now Jesus puts your self down, and He is Himself exalted. By working yourself to death, you cannot effect your own salvation. Lo, Jesus comes to save you. You cannot weave yourself a garment. Lo, He comes to clothe you from head to foot with His own seamless robe of righteousness. He annihilates self that He may fill all things.

Here is a glorious setting of Himself at our side and in our place...He puts His own name to our liabilities, and in effect, that He may meet them, He says, “Lo, I come.” Your debt of…

A PRAYER FOR THE GRACE OF PERSEVERANCE

Our Joyous Rejoicing!

Eternal God, with whom is everlasting strength, You are able to keep us from falling and to perform the good work begun in us, till the day of Jesus Christ. But, Lord, You know how weak and changeable I am, how apt to shrink back or start aside after I have been hopefully set in the way toward heaven; and in what danger I still am of ruining myself, after all the great things You have done for me. O Lord of love, have pity on my infirmities and strengthen me in my weakness. Preserve me, blessed Guardian of Your people, who keeps the feet of Your saints; O preserve me from the danger of apostasy and put Your fear in my heart, that I may not depart from You. Make me so firmly Yours, that nothing which befalls me in the world may ever part You in my soul…

The Lord’s Delights

He Hath Said

Then said He, Lo, I come to do Thy will, O God. – Hebrews 10:9

Our Lord delighted to carry out all the purposes and desires of the Most High God. He so delighted in the will of God that He came to do it, and to bear it, by the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. He also delighted in God. He took an intense delight in glorifying the Father. He came to reveal the Father, and make Him to be beloved of men. He did all things to please God. Moreover, He took a delight in us; and here, though the object of His love is less, the love itself is heightened by the conspicuous condescension. The Lord Jesus took a deep delight in His people, whose names were written on His heart, and graven on the…

Poor and Yet Very Dear to Your Father

He Hath Said

…but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light. -Zecharih 14:7

No child of God can be very long without trouble of some kind or other, for sure it is that the road to heaven will always be rough…There is a pilgrimage, and a weary pilgrimage too, which must be taken before you can obtain entrance into those gates. Still, in all their trials, God’s people always find it true that at evening time it shall be light. Are you suffering from temporal troubles. You cannot expect to be without these. They are hard to bear. This, however, should cheer you, that God is as much engaged to succour and support you in your temporal, as He is in your spiritual, interests. Beloved, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Not a sparrow falls on the ground without your Father knowing it. Well…

Muzzle that dog of unbelief!

He Hath Said

“I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.” – Psalm 118:17

How very differently we view things at different times and in differing states of mind! Faith takes a bright and cheerful view of matters, and speaks very confidently, “I shall not die, but live.” When we are slack as to our trust in God, and give way to misgivings and doubts and fears, we sing in the minor key, and say, “I shall die. I shall never live through this trouble. I shall one day fall by the hand of the enemy; and that day is hastening on. Hope is failing me. Bad times are at the door. I shall not live through this crisis.” Thus our tongues show the condition of our inner man. We talk according to our frames and feelings, and would make others think that things are as we see…
