Showing the state of our nation in the light of God’s Holy Word

Come, Let Us With Our Lord Arise

Come, let us with our Lord arise,
Our Lord, who made both earth and skies;
Who died to save the world He made,
And rose triumphant triumphant from the dead;
He rose, the Prince of life and peace,
And stamped the day forever His.

This is the day the Lord hath made,
That all may see His love displayed,
May feel His resurrection’s pow’r,
And rise again to to fall no more,
In perfect righteousness renewed,
And filled with all the life of God.

Honour and praise to Jesus pay
Thro’out His consecrated day;
Be all in Jesus’ praise employed,
Nor leave a single single moment void;
With utmost care the time improve,
And only breathe His praise and love.

Then let us render Him His own,
With solemn prayer approach the throne,
With meekness hear the Gospel Word,
With thanks His dying dying love record;
Our joyful hearts and voices raise,
And fill His courts with songs of praise.

Charles Wesley

This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Save now, I beseech thee, O LORD: O LORD, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.
Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD:
we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD.
God is the LORD, which hath shewed us light:….

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world:
he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
