The World is Groaning – CRC Sunday Sermon

March 22, 2020

Responsive Reading
Psalm 150 (Trinity Hymnal #841)

Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his might heavens.
Praise him for his acts of power;
praise him for his surpassing greatness.

Praise him with the sound of the trumpet,
praise him with the harp and lyre,
praise him with tambourine and dancing,
praise him with the strings and flute,

praise him with clash of cymbals,
praise him with resounding cymbals.
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.

Praise the Lord.

By Grace I am an Heir of Heaven (Trinity Hymnal #695)
1 By grace I am an heir of heaven:
why doubt this, O my trembling heart?
If what the Scriptures promise clearly
is true and firm in ev’ry part,
this also must be truth divine:
by grace a crown of life is mine.

2 By grace alone shall I inherit
that blissful home beyond the skies.
Works count for naught, the Lord incarnate
has won for me the heav’nly prize.
Salvation by his death he wrought,
his grace alone my pardon bought.

3 By grace! These precious words remember
when sorely by your sins oppressed,
when Satan comes to vex your spirit,
when troubled conscience sighs for rest;
what reason cannot comprehend,
God does to you by grace extend.

4 By grace! Be this in death my comfort;
despite my fears, ’tis well with me.
I know my sin in all its greatness,
but also him who sets me free.
My heart to naught but joy gives place,
since I am saved by grace, by grace.
