Praise of the Lord-His Name

Day  25 – 80

3. Jesus, my great High Priest,

Offered His blood, and died;

My guilty conscience seeks

No sacrifice beside:

His pow’rful blood did me redeem,

‘Tis worthy of my heart’s esteem.

Reminds me of this pair of verses:

Hebrews 4:15-16 – For we do not have a High Priest who cannot be touched with the feeling of our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all respects like us, yet without sin. Let us therefore come forward with boldness to the throne of grace that we may receive mercy and find grace for timely help.

4. I love my Shepherd’s voice:

His watchful eye shall keep

My wand’ring soul among

The thousands of His sheep:

He feeds His flock, He calls their names,

His bosom bears the tender lambs. 

A very sweet passage.

Enjoy some shepherding today!
