Luke 10:38-42
Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. 39 And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus’ feet and heard His word. 40 But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me.”

41 And Jesus answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. 42 But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.”

Hymn: TLH 284, st. 1-4: Father of Mercies, in Thy Word Organ Audio

1. Father of mercies, in Thy Word 
What endless glory shines! 
Forever be Thy name adored 
For these celestial lines. 

2. Here may the blind and hungry come 
And light and food receive; 
Here shall the lowliest guest have room 
And taste and see and live. 

3. Here springs of consolation rise 
To cheer the fainting mind, 
And thirsting souls receive supplies 
And sweet refreshment find. 

4. Here the Redeemer’s welcome voice 
Spreads heavenly peace around, 
And life and everlasting joys 
Attend the blissful sound.
