Throughout this song we hear the third commandment from Exodus 20:7 and the first petition of the Lord’s Prayer in Matthew 6:9.
See also Psalms 72:19, 99, 115:1, and 135:13.
See also Proverbs 18:20 and John 12:78.
What can possibly be so important that it is our first cry in the morning and our last thought at night? Belgic Confession, Article 20 testifies that God gave us “…his Son to die by a most perfect love” and then raised him to life “for our justification in order that by him we might have immortality and eternal life.”
Because of such perfect love, comfort can be found in the words of Heidelberg Catechism, Lord’s Day 1, Question and Answer 1: “I belong—body and soul, in life and in death—to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ.” This is our cry—first thing in the morning and last thought at night!
