Thy face, Lord, will I seek

In the 27th Psalm , David declares, When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek. In this he speaks of Christ, for Christ is the face of God. Where the mercy of Christ is, there is comfort that the Father will not put me away in anger. God incarnate wears our own flesh, and so disguises his majesty in a way that tells us we may approach him unafraid. So it is right to say with David, One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple. The sermon.
