It’s sad nine didn’t return, but what’s really striking is that one actually did. Jesus can so move the heart to faith!

     11 And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: 13 And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. 14 And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. 15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16 And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. 17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? 18 There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. 19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 36:
Now Thank We all Our God

— Organ Audio


1. Now thank we all our God 
With heart and hands and voices, 
Who wondrous things hath done, 
In whom His world rejoices; 
Who from our mother’s arms 
Hath blessed us on our way 
With countless gifts of love, 
And still is ours today. 

2. Oh, may this bounteous God 
Through all our life be near us, 
With ever joyful hearts 
And blessed peace to cheer us; 
And keep us in His grace 
And guide us when perplexed 
And free us from all ills 
In this world and the next. 

3. All praise and thanks to God 
The Father now be given, 
The Son, and Him who reigns 
With them in highest heaven: 
The one eternal God, 
Whom earth and heaven adore! 
For thus it was, is now, 
And shall be evermore.

     15 And God spake unto Noah, saying, 16 Go forth of the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons’ wives with thee. 17 Bring forth with thee every living thing that is with thee, of all flesh, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth; that they may breed abundantly in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth. 18 And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him: 19 Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and whatsoever creepeth upon the earth, after their kinds, went forth out of the ark.

     20 And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. 21 And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done. 22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.(KJV)

In grateful devotion our tribute we bring;

To Thee, our great Redeemer, fore’er be praise.
