We read of the Passover earlier too, but how many times is too many when remembering God’s salvation?

     1 Observe the month of Abib, and keep the passover unto the LORD thy God: for in the month of Abib the LORD thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night. 2 Thou shalt therefore sacrifice the passover unto the LORD thy God, of the flock and the herd, in the place which the LORD shall choose to place his name there. 3 Thou shalt eat no leavened bread with it; seven days shalt thou eat unleavened bread therewith, even the bread of affliction: for thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt in haste: that thou mayest remember the day when thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt all the days of thy life. 4 And there shall be no leavened bread seen with thee in all thy coast seven days; neither shall there any thing of the flesh, which thou sacrificedst the first day at even, remain all night until the morning. 5 Thou mayest not sacrifice the passover within any of thy gates, which the LORD thy God giveth thee: 6 But at the place which the LORD thy God shall choose to place his name in, there thou shalt sacrifice the passover at even, at the going down of the sun, at the season that thou camest forth out of Egypt. 7 And thou shalt roast and eat it in the place which the LORD thy God shall choose: and thou shalt turn in the morning, and go unto thy tents. 8 Six days thou shalt eat unleavened bread: and on the seventh day shall be a solemn assembly to the LORD thy God: thou shalt do no work therein.(KJV)

1. My soul, now bless thy Maker! 
Let all within me bless His name 
Who maketh thee partaker 
Of mercies more than thou dar’st claim. 
Forget Him not whose meekness 
Still bears with all thy sin, 
Who healeth all thy weakness, 
Renews thy life within; 
Whose grace and care are endless 
And saved thee through the past; 
Who leaves no sufferer friendless, 
But rights the wronged at last. 

2. He shows to man His treasure 
Of judgment, truth, and righteousness, 
His love beyond all measure, 
His yearning pity o’er distress, 
Nor treats us as we merit, 
But lays His anger by, 
The humble, contrite spirit 
Finds His compassion nigh; 
And high as heaven above us, 
As break from close of day, 
So far, since He doth love us, 
He puts our sins away. 

3. For as a tender father 
Hath pity on his children here, 
He in His arms will gather 
All who are His in childlike fear. 
He knows how frail our powers 
Who but from dust are made; 
We flourish like the flowers, 
And even so we fade; 
The wind but o’er them passes, 
And all their bloom is o’er,- 
We wither like the grasses, 
Our place knows us no more. 

4. God’s grace alone endureth, 
And children’s children yet shall prove 
How He with strength assureth 
The hearts of all that seek His love. 
In heaven is fixed His dwelling, 
His rule is over all; 
Angels, in might excelling, 
Bright hosts, before Him fall. 
Praise Him, who ever reigneth, 
All ye who hear His Word, 
Nor our poor hymns disdaineth- 
My soul, oh, bless the Lord!
