Where is your Treasure? – CRC Sunday Sermon

March 10, 2019


Psalm 99 #820 Trinity Hymnal
The Lord reigns, let the nations tremble;

he sits enthroned between the cherubim, let the earth shake.
Great is the Lord in Zion; he is exalted over all the nations.

Let them praise your great and awesome name – he is holy.
The King is might, he loves justice –

you have established equity;
in Jacob you have done what is just and right.
Exalt the Lord our God and worship at his footstool; he is holy.
Moses and Aaron were among his priests, Samuel was among those who called on his name;

they call on the Lord and he answered them.
He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud;

they kept his statutes and the decrees he gave them.
O Lord our God, you answered them; you were to Israel a forgiving God, though you punished their misdeeds.
Exalt the Lord our God and worship at his holy mountain, for the Lord our God is holy.

Psalm 4

Psalm 116:1-9 (Psalter #116-A)

I love the Lord because He heard my Supplicating plea,
I while I live will call on Him Who bowed His ear to me.
The cords of death on every side Encompassed me around
The sorrows of the grave took hold; I grieve and trouble found.

Then called I on Jehovah’s name And unto Him did say
“Deliver Thou my soul ,O Lord, I do Thee humbly pray.”
The Lord is gracious and is just; Our God will mercy show.
The Lord preserves the meek in heart; he saved me when brought low.

O thou my soul, do thou return To thine own quiet rest.
Because the Lord has dealt in grace; His bounty has thee blessed.
Thou has released my soul from death, My eyes from tears kept free,
From falling Thou has saved my feet; I live and walk with Thee.
