“God has come to help his people.” Can anything be more comforting than that simple sentence?

     11 And it came to pass the day after, that he went into a city called Nain; and many of his disciples went with him, and much people. 12 Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her. 13 And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not. 14 And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise. 15 And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother. 16 And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, That a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That God hath visited his people. 17 And this rumour of him went forth throughout all Judaea, and throughout all the region round about.(KJV)

Hymn: WS 778:
Grace Has a Thrilling Sound

1. Grace has a thrilling sound  
To each believer’s ear;  
That peace with God through Christ is found  
Is news I gladly hear.  
Grace first devised the way  
To save our fallen race;  
The Father sent His only Son  
Who came to take our place. 

2. Grace first inscribed my name  
In God’s eternal book,  
And grace has brought me to the Lamb,  
Who all my sorrows took.  
Grace led my wand’ring feet  
To tread the heav’nly road,  
And grace supplies each hour I meet  
While pressing on to God. 

3. Grace taught my soul to pray  
And made my eyes o’erflow;  
His grace has kept me to this day  
And will not let me go. Grace 
all our Work shall crown  
Through everlasting days;  
The heav’nly home God gives His own  
Shall echo with our praise.
