Jesus:the proof that God is on our side

Scripture: Psalm 118:1-14

ESV Text: Psalm 118:1-14


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 118 1 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: because his mercy endureth for ever. 2 Let Israel now say, that his mercy endureth for ever. 3 Let the house of Aaron now say, that his mercy endureth for ever. 4 Let them now that fear the LORD say, that his mercy endureth for ever. 5 I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me, and set me in a large place. 6 The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me? 7 The LORD taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me. 8 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. 9 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes. 10 All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD will I destroy them. 11 They compassed me about; yea, they compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD I will destroy them. 12 They compassed me about like bees; they are quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of the LORD I will destroy them. 13 Thou hast thrust sore at me that I might fall: but the LORD helped me. 14 The LORD is my strength and song, and is become my salvation.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 528, st. 1-5:
If God Himself be for Me

— Organ Audio

1. If God Himself be for me, 
I may a host defy; 
For when I pray, before me 
My foes, confounded, fly. 
If Christ, my Head and Master, 
Befriend me from above, 
What foe or what disaster 
Can drive me from His love? 

2. This I believe, yea, rather, 
Of this I make my boast, 
That God is my dear Father, 
The Friend who loves me most, 
And that, whate’er betide me, 
My Savior is at hand 
Through stormy seas to guide me 
And bring me safe to land. 

3. I build on this foundation, 
That Jesus and His blood 
Alone are my salvation, 
The true, eternal good. 
Without Him all that pleases 
Is valueless on earth; 
The gifts I owe to Jesus 
Alone my love are worth. 

4. My Jesus is my Splendor, 
My Sun, my Light, alone; 
Were He not my Defender 
Before God’s awe-full throne, 
I never should find favor 
And mercy in His sight, 
But be destroyed forever 
As darkness by the light. 

5. He canceled my offenses, 
Delivered me from death; 
He is the Lord who cleanses 
My soul from sin through faith. 
In Him I can be cheerful, 
Bold, and undaunted aye; 
In Him I am not fearful 
Of God’s great Judgment Day.
