Smart: Rejoice in the Lamb

Thursday, September 24, 2020
The wolf will live with the lamb,
    the leopard will lie down with the goat,
    the calf and the lion and the yearling together;
    and a little child will lead them.
    —Isaiah 11:6 (NIV)
Rejoice in God, O ye tongues; give the glory to the Lord, and the Lamb.
Nations, and languages, and every creature, in which is the breath of Life.
Let man and beast appear before him, and magnify his name together.
Let Noah and his company approach the throne of Grace, and do homage to the Ark of their Salvation.
Let Abraham present a Ram, and worship the God of his Redemption.
Let Jacob with his speckled Drove adore the good Shepherd of Israel.
Let Daniel come forth with a Lion, and praise God with all his might, through faith in Christ Jesus.
Let David bless with the bear—
    The beginning of victory to the Lord—
    to the Lord the perfection of excellence—
    Hallelujah from the heart of God, and from the hand of the artist inimitable, and from the echo of the heavenly harp in sweetness magnifical and mighty.
    ... Christopher Smart (1722-1771), Jubilate Agno [1759], R. Hart-Davis, 1954, p. 30 (see the book)
    See also Isa. 11:6; Gen. 6:8-22; 7; 8; 22:13; Lev. 26:6; Ps. 9:1-2; 63:11; Dan. 6:3-23; Rev. 5:12
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your whole world waits to praise and serve You.
