When our souls are weary with sorrow and trouble, we can turn to the word of God for strength and comfort.

Scripture: Psalm 119:25-32

ESV Text: Psalm 119:25-32


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 119

     25 DALETH. My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken thou me according to thy word.

     26 I have declared my ways, and thou heardest me: teach me thy statutes. 27 Make me to understand the way of thy precepts: so shall I talk of thy wondrous works.

     28 My soul melteth for heaviness: strengthen thou me according unto thy word. 29 Remove from me the way of lying: and grant me thy law graciously.

     30 I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments have I laid before me. 31 I have stuck unto thy testimonies: O LORD, put me not to shame. 32 I will run the way of thy commandments, when thou shalt enlarge my heart.(KJV)

Lord Jesus, Thou the Church’s Head

1. Lord Jesus, Thou the Church’s Head, 
Thou art her one Foundation; 
In Thee she trusts, before Thee bows, 
And waits for Thy salvation. 
Built on this Rock secure, 
Thy Church shall endure 
E’en though the world decay 
And all things pass away. 
Oh, hear, oh, hear us, Jesus! 

2. O Lord, let this Thy little flock, 
Thy name alone confessing, 
Continue in Thy loving care, 
True unity possessing. 
Thy Sacraments, O Lord, 
And Thy saving Word 
To us e’er pure retain. 
Grant that they may remain 
Our only strength and comfort.
