Amos 8:11-14
11 “Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord God,
“That I will send a famine on the land,
Not a famine of bread,
Nor a thirst for water,
But of hearing the words of the Lord.
12 They shall wander from sea to sea,
And from north to east;
They shall run to and fro, seeking the word of the Lord,
But shall not find it.

13 “In that day the fair virgins
And strong young men
Shall faint from thirst.
14 Those who swear by the sin of Samaria,
Who say,
‘As your god lives, O Dan!’
And, ‘As the way of Beersheba lives!’
They shall fall and never rise again.”

Hymn: TLH 261, st. 1-3: Lord, Keep us Steadfast in Thy Word

1. Lord, keep us steadfast in Thy Word; 
Curb those who fain by craft and sword 
Would wrest the Kingdom from Thy Son 
And set at naught all He hath done. 

2. Lord Jesus Christ, Thy power make known, 
For Thou art Lord of lords alone; 
Defend Thy Christendom that we 
May evermore sing praise to Thee. 

3. O Comforter of priceless worth. 
Send peace and unity on earth. 
Support us in our final strife 
And lead us out of death to life.
