Speaker : Daniel Schierenbeck
1 Samuel 7:12
Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen, and called its name Ebenezer, saying, “Thus far the Lord has helped us.”
Hymn: TLH 33, st. 1-3 :
The Lord Hath Helped me Hitherto
1. The Lord hath helped me hitherto
By His surpassing favor;
His mercies every morn were new,
His kindness did not waver.
God hitherto hath been my Guide,
Hath pleasures hitherto supplied,
And hitherto hath helped me.
2. I praise and thank Thee, Lord, my God,
For Thine abundant blessing
Which heretofore Thou hast bestowed
And I am still possessing.
Inscribe this on my memory:
The Lord hath done great things for me
And graciously hath helped me.
3. Help me henceforth, O God of grace,
Help me on each occasion,
Help me in each and every place,
Help me through Jesus’ Passion;
Help me in life and death, O God,
Help me through Jesus’ dying blood;
Help me as Thou hast helped me!
