“The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot. The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. I bless the Lord who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me. I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure.” Psalms 16:5–9

Come feast at the table of this blessed assurance Our hope and joy forever established by His precious blood for our salvation! Proclaim the Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ with shouts of acclamation!
