White Robe

White Robe

See here this robe of purest white;
one hand did weave it all.
I dare not add one thread to it;
I've none unstained by gall.
It's made with intricate design;
it needs no ornament.
And He that wove it to my soul
this garment did present.
It's made to cover scar and sin,
and guilt and grievous shame.
The One who made it bought it dear,
and Holy is His name.
I wear it now; I'll wear it too
upon the coming Day
in which the elements shall melt,
the heavens pass away.
This is my cov'ring, bright and good,
this is my wedding-dress,
all pure and washed in sacred blood:
Jesus, Your righteousness.

By D.E. Young



Revelation 7:9-17

After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, saying, "Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!"
All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying: "Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom, Thanksgiving and honor and power and might, Be to our God forever and ever. Amen."
Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, "Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?" And I said to him, "Sir, you know." So he said to me, "These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. "Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them. "They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; "for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."

Singing the Psalms...continued...

This psalm may be sung to the tune When I Survey The Wondrous Cross.


Repentance

Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.   Ps. 51:10



O thou that hear'st when sinners cry,
Though all my crimes before thee lie,
Behold them not with angry look,
But blot their mem'ry from thy book.

Create my nature pure within,
And form my soul averse to sin;
Let thy good Spirit ne'er depart,
Not hide thy presence from my heart.

I cannot live without thy light,
Cast out and banished from thy sight;
Thy holy joys, my God, restore,
And guard me, that I fall no more.

A broken heart, my God, my King,
Is all the sacrifice I bring;
The God of grace will ne'er despise
A broken heart for sacrifice.

My soul lies humbled in the dust,
And owns thy dreadful sentence just:
Look down, O Lord, with pitying eye,
And save the soul condemned to die.

Then will I teach the world thy ways;
Sinners shall learn thy sov'reign grace;
I'll lead them to my Saviour's blood,
And they shall praise a pard'ning God.

Singing Psalm 50:1-6

This psalm may be sung to the tune of Crown Him With Many Crowns.

                                                   

The Lord Jesus Christ

The mighty God, even the Lord, hath spoken....Ps. 50:1

Psalm 50:1-6

The mighty God, the Lord, Hath spoken unto all;
From rising to the setting sun, He unto earth doth call.
From Zion, his own hill, Where perfect beauty dwells,
Jehovah hath his glory shown, In brightness that excels.

Our God shall surely come, And silence shall not keep;
Before him fire shall waste, and storms Tempestuous round him sweep.
He to the heavens above Shall then send forth his call,
And likewise to the earth, that he May judge his people all.

"Together let my saints Unto me gathered be,
Those that by sacrifice have made A covenant with me."
Then shall the heavens declare His righteousness abroad;
Because the Lord himself is judge, Yea, none is judge, but God. Amen.
