Text: Deuteronomy 6
Hymn: 883, All Praise to Thee, My God, This Night
Kretzmann Commentary: Deuteronomy 6
Bonus Bumper: Yankee B Ft Gauge, Doers of the Word
A couple of cool echoes in the New Testament: “You shall love the Lord your God…” and “You shall not put the Lord your God to the test…” Kretzmann has some interesting commentary about how the Jews kept this greatest commandment with trinkets.
Thanks again to the Lutheran Warbler for contributing her voice to Tallis’ canon.
All Praise to Thee, My God, This Night
- All praise to Thee, my God, this night,
For all the blessings of the light.
Keep me, O keep me, King of kings,
Beneath Thine own almighty wings.
- Forgive me, Lord, for Thy dear Son,
The ill that I this day have done,
That with the world, myself, and Thee,
I, ere I sleep, at peace may be.
- Teach me to live, that I may dread
The grave as little as my bed.
Teach me to die, that so I may
Rise glorious at the awe-full day.
- Oh, may my soul on Thee repose,
And may sweet sleep mine eyelids close,
Sleep that shall me more vig’rous make
To serve my God when I awake!
- When in the night I sleepless lie,
My soul with heav’nly thoughts supply;
Let no ill dreams disturb my rest,
No pow’rs of darkness me molest.
- Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heav’nly host:
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
