After this many of his disciples turned back and no longer walked with him. So Jesus said to the Twelve, “Do you want to go away as well?” Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life, and we have believed, and have come to know, that you are the Holy One of God.” (John 6:66-69 ESV)
Hymn ELH 64:1,2 Praise the Lord, Ye Heavens, Adore Him
Praise the Lord, ye heav’ns, adore Him,
Praise Him, angels, in the height;
Sun and moon, rejoice before Him;
Praise Him, all ye stars of light.
Praise the Lord, for He has spoken;
Worlds His mighty voice obeyed;
Laws which never shall be broken,
For their guidance He has made.
Praise the Lord, for He is glorious;
Never shall His promise fail;
God has made His saints victorious;
Sin and death shall not prevail.
Praise the God of our salvation;
Hosts on high, His pow’r proclaim;
Heav’n and earth, and all creation,
Laud and magnify His name!
Jesus, my Savior, You have the words of eternal life. Let Your Word always dwell in me and strengthen me. Amen.
