2015 Chapels -
“Vanity of vanities, all is vanity.”


Date : 2015-01-21
Speaker : John Ude

Ecclesiastes 1:2 (Listen)

  Vanity1 of vanities, says the Preacher,
    vanity of vanities! All is vanity.


[1] 1:2 The Hebrew term hebel, translated vanity or vain, refers concretely to a “mist,” “vapor,” or “mere breath,” and metaphorically to something that is fleeting or elusive (with different nuances depending on the context). It appears five times in this verse and in 29 other verses in Ecclesiastes


Hymn: TLH 50, st. 1,2 :
Lord, Dismiss Us with Thy Blessing — Organ Audio

1. Lord, dismiss us with Thy blessing,
Fill our hearts with joy and peace.
Let us each, Thy love possessing,
Triumph in redeeming grace.
Oh, refresh us, Oh, refresh us,
Traveling through this wilderness!

2. Thanks we give and adoration
For Thy Gospel’s joyful sound.
May the fruits of Thy salvation
In our hearts and lives abound;
Ever faithful, Ever faithful,
To the Truth may we be found!
