“The LORD is our Judge” and He’s always right

“The LORD is our Lawgiver;” laws of comfort, not fright

“The LORD is our King” – He is absolute King

Absolute joyfulness His decisions soon bring

“He will save us,” guiding from darkness into light.

– eab, 2/7/09          (quotations mark = exact words of Isa 33.22)

Isaiah * tells us God is Judge, Lawgiver, and King.

But since merely men and not the great God,

None of whom are trusted the whole power to swing.

“Holy Bible, Book Divine”

Holy Bible, book Divine,
Precious treasure, thou art mine;
Mine to tell me whence I came;
Mine to teach me what I am.


Mine to chide me when I rove;
Mine to shew a Saviour’s love;
Mine art thou to guide my feet;
Mine to judge, condemn, acquit.


Mine to comfort in distress;
If the Holy Spirit bless;
Mine to shew, by living faith,
Man can triumph over death.


Mine to tell of joys to come,
And the rebel sinner’s doom;
Holy Bible, book Divine,
Precious treasure, thou art mine.
