The First Commandment

Q.  Which is the first commandment?

A.  The first commandment is, “You shall have no other gods before [1] me.” (Exodus 20:3 ESV).

As Pants the Hart for Cooling Streams

#661, The Trinity Hymnal; From Psalm 42; Tate and Brady’s New Version, 1696, 1698; SPOHR C.M.; Louis Spohr, 1835; arr.

As pants the hart for cooling streams when heated in the chase, so longs my soul, O God, for thee, and thy refreshing grace.

For thee, my God, the living God, my thirsty soul doth pine; O when shall I behold thy face, thou Majesty divine!

Why restless, why cast down, my soul? Trust God, and he’ll employ his aid for thee, and change these sighs to thankful hymns of joy.

Why restless, why cast down, my soul? Hope still; and thou shalt sing the praise of him who is thy God, thy health’s eternal spring.
