Sixth Day Morning: The Gospel



Creator of the ends of the earth,
    Governor of the universe,
    Judge of all men,
    Head of the church,
    Saviour of sinners;
      thy greatness is unsearchable,
      thy goodness infinite,
      thy compassions unfailing,
      thy providence boundless,
      thy mercies ever new.
We bless thee for the words of salvation.
How important, suitable, encouraging
  are the doctrines, promises, and invitations
    of the gospel of peace!
We are lost: but in it thou hast presented to us
    a full, free and eternal salvation;
  weak: but here we learn that help is found in
    One that is mighty,
  poor: but in him we discover unsearchable riches,
  blind: but we find he has treasures of wisdom
    and knowledge.
We thank thee for thy unspeakable gift.
Thy Son is our only refuge, foundation, hope,
We depend upon his death,
  rest in his righteousness,
  desire to bear his image;
May his glory fill our minds,
  his love reign in our affections,
  his cross inflame us with ardour.
Let us as Christians fill our various situations
    in life,
  escape the snares to which they expose us,
  discharge the duties that arise from our
  enjoy with moderation their advantages,
  improve with diligence their usefulness,
And may every place and company we are in
    be benefited by us.
