BibleGateway: 2 Timothy 1:8-14
ESV Text: 2 Timothy 1:8-14
(Alt. audio): Chapter: 1
8 Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God; 9 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, 10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel: 11 Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles. 12 For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day. 13 Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. 14 That good thing which was committed unto thee keep by the Holy Ghost which dwelleth in us.(KJV)
Hymn: TLH 502:
Saints of God, the Dawn Is Brightening
1. Saints of God, the dawn is bright’ning,
Token of our coming Lord;
O’er the earth the field is whit’ning;
Louder rings the Master’s word:
Pray for reapers, Pray for reapers,
In the harvest of the Lord!
2. Now, O Lord, fulfil Thy pleasure,
Breathe upon Thy chosen band,
And with Pentecostal measure
Send forth reapers o’er our land,
Faithful reapers, Faithful reapers,
Gath’ring sheaves for Thy right hand.
3. Soon shall end the time of weeping,
Soon the reaping time will come,
Heav’n and earth together keeping
God’s eternal Harvest-home.
Saints and angels, saints and angels,
Shout the world’s great Harvest-home.
