Jesus:awaited during dark days when God seemed to forget

Scripture: Psalm 89:38-52

ESV Text: Psalm 89:38-52


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 89 38 But thou hast cast off and abhorred, thou hast been wroth with thine anointed. 39 Thou hast made void the covenant of thy servant: thou hast profaned his crown by casting it to the ground. 40 Thou hast broken down all his hedges; thou hast brought his strong holds to ruin. 41 All that pass by the way spoil him: he is a reproach to his neighbours. 42 Thou hast set up the right hand of his adversaries; thou hast made all his enemies to rejoice. 43 Thou hast also turned the edge of his sword, and hast not made him to stand in the battle. 44 Thou hast made his glory to cease, and cast his throne down to the ground. 45 The days of his youth hast thou shortened: thou hast covered him with shame. Selah. 46 How long, LORD? wilt thou hide thyself for ever? shall thy wrath burn like fire? 47 Remember how short my time is: wherefore hast thou made all men in vain? 48 What man is he that liveth, and shall not see death? shall he deliver his soul from the hand of the grave? Selah. 49 Lord, where are thy former lovingkindnesses, which thou swarest unto David in thy truth? 50 Remember, Lord, the reproach of thy servants; how I do bear in my bosom the reproach of all the mighty people; 51 Wherewith thine enemies have reproached, O LORD; wherewith they have reproached the footsteps of thine anointed. 52 Blessed be the LORD for evermore. Amen, and Amen.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 231:
We Now Implore God the Holy Ghost

— Organ Audio

1. We now implore the Holy Ghost 
For the true faith, which we need the most, 
That in our last moments He may befriend us 
And, as homeward we journey, attend us. 
Lord, have mercy. 

2. Shine in our hearts, O most precious Light, 
That we Jesus Christ may know aright, 
Clinging to our Savior, whose blood hath bought us. 
Who again to our homeland hath brought us. 
Lord, have mercy. 

3. Thou sacred Love, grace on us bestow, 
Set our hearts with heavenly fire aglow 
That with hearts united we love each other, 
Of one mind, in peace with every brother. 
Lord, have mercy! 

4. Thou highest Comfort in every need, 
Grant that neither shame nor death we heed, 
That e’en then our courage may never fail us 
When the Foe shall accuse and assail us. 
Lord, have mercy!
