  • Evening Praise the Lord.




    Praise the Lord!

    Watchman, what of the night?
    Isaiah 21:11






    Sentinel Upon the Heights

    On the heights why standest thou, sentinel, with sleepless brow?
    In the service of our Lord, I am keeping watch and word;
    Sleeping never, guarding ever all the posts of danger near;
    Lest our city should be captured, lest the enemy appear.

    On the heights what seest thou, sentinel, with sleepless brow?
    Sin and crime with heedless bound, send their forces all around;
    Never sleeping, ever keeping, faithful guard tho’ foes appall,
    Christ Himself our arms will strengthen, mighty to encompass all.

    On the heights what hearest thou, sentinel, with sleepless brow?
    Still the foe in phalanx broad, arms himself against the Lord;
    Armor glancing, swift advancing, when we thought salvation near;
    Waken soldiers! march to battle, Christ the Lord is Captain here.

    Tho’ the night be long and weary,
    Cheer thee, soldier, yonder distant ray
    Shall dispel these war clouds dreary;
    Thou shalt soon behold the day!




    Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

    .....O LORD my God, in You I put my trust. Psalm 7:1
    .....To You, O LORD, I lift up my soul.
    Psalm 25:1

    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~ Leo Buscaglia

    The best portion of a person’s life -- are the little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love. ~ William Wordsworth

    • Praise the Lord!

      All Your waves and billows have gone over me.
      Psalm 42:7





      His Billows

      They are His billows, whether they go o’er us,
      Hiding His face in smothering spray and foam;
      Or smooth and sparkling, spread a path before us,
      And to our haven bear us safely home.

      They are His billows, whether for our succor
      He walks across them, stilling all our fear;
      Or to our cry there comes no aid nor answer,
      And in the lonely silence none is near.

      They are His billows, whether we are toiling
      Through tempest-driven waves that never cease,
      While deep to deep with clamor loud is calling;
      Or at His word they hush themselves in peace.

      They are His billows, whether He divides them,
      Making us walk dryshod where seas had flowed;
      Or lets tumultuous breakers surge about us,
      Rushing unchecked across our only road.

      They are His billows, and He brings us through them;
      So He has promised, so His love will do.
      Keeping and leading, guiding and upholding,
      To His sure harbor, He will bring us through.




      Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

        Praise the Lord!

        But the boat was now in the middle of the sea, tossed by the waves,
        for the wind was contrary.

        Matthew 14:24
        And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling.
        Mark 4:37
        A tempestuous head wind arose.
        Acts 27:14-15





        Security in Storms

        Jesus Christ is no security against storms, but He is perfect security in storms.
        He has never promised you an easy passage, only a safe landing.

        Oh, set your sail to the heavenly gale,
        And then, no matter what winds prevail,
        No reef can wreck you, no calm delay;
        No mist shall hinder, no storm shall stay;
        Though far you wander and long you roam
        Through salt sea sprays and o’er white sea foam,
        No wind that can blow but shall speed you Home.


        The LORD brought an east wind on the land all that day and all that night. When it was morning, the east wind brought the locusts…Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron in haste… And the LORD turned a very strong west wind, which took the locusts away and blew them into the Red Sea. There remained not one locust in all the territory of Egypt. Exodus 10:13-19


        Deliverance in the Stormy Winds

        Though winds are wild,
        And the gale unleashed,
        My trusting heart still sings:
        I know that they mean
        No harm to me,
        He rideth on their wings.




        Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

          Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
          For they shall be filled.

          Matthew 5:6





          Until He Comes

          Keep Thou me ever hungry, Lord,
          Until I famish for Thy Word
          Thy Word, which is my meat, my bread,
          Thy Word, which feeds whenever read.

          Keep Thou me ever thirsty, Lord,
          Stay not Thy hand till Thou hast poured
          Thy living water in my cup
          Which I am humbly holding up.

          Keep me dissatisfied, dear Lord;
          Use Thou Thy Spirit’s shining sword
          To pierce my foolish self-esteem
          And rouse me from my empty dream.

          Keep me awake, that I may hear
          Thy bugles calling, loud and clear.
          Stir Thou my sluggish soul to fight
          For Thee beneath Thy banner bright.

          Yea, this my prayer, that I may be
          Hungry and thirsty, Lord, for Thee,
          Dissatisfied with self, awake!
          And this I ask for Jesus’ sake.



          Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

            Praise the Lord!

            And let us not grow weary while doing good,
            for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.

            Galatians 6:9
            Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls. Hebrews 12:2-3





            Be Not Weary

            Yes! He knows the way is dreary,
            Knows the weakness of our frame,
            Knows that hand and heart are weary;
            He, ‘in all points,’ felt the same.
            He is near to help and bless;
            Be not weary, onward press.

            Look to Him who once was willing
            All His glory to resign,
            That, for thee the law fulfilling,
            All His merit might be thine.
            Strive to follow day by day
            Where His footsteps mark the way.

            Look to Him, the Lord of Glory,
            Tasting death to win thy life;
            Gazing on ‘that wondrous story,’
            Canst thou falter in the strife?
            Is it not new life to know
            That the Lord hath loved thee so?

            Look to Him who ever liveth,
            Interceding for His own:
            Seek, yea, claim the grace He giveth
            Freely from His priestly throne.
            Will He not thy strength renew
            With His Spirit’s quickening dew?

            Look to Him, and faith shall brighten,
            Hope shall soar, and love shall burn;
            Peace once more thy heart shall lighten;
            Rise! He calleth thee, return!
            Be not weary on thy way
            Jesus is thy strength and stay.

            • Praise the Lord!


              Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin;
              and yet I say to you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

              Luke 12:27





              Consider the Lilies

              Consider the lilies how stately they grow!
              They toil not, they spin not, no seed do they sow;
              Yet they bloom all the summer, so shining and tall,
              The Father who loves them takes thought for them all.

              Consider the ravens who gives them their food?
              Who shelters their nest in the storm beaten wood?
              Who guides the young sparrow? who watches its fall?
              Their Father in Heaven takes heed for them all.

              Our Father in Heaven, Thy children on earth
              Than lilies or ravens Thou holdest more worth:
              O guide us and guard us, be near when we call,
              Uphold us, enfold us we thank Thee for all!

                Praise the Lord!
                Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13-14




                The Things Which are Behind

                Leave behind earth’s empty pleasure,
                Fleeting hope and changeful love;
                Leave its soon-corroding treasure;
                There are better things above.

                Leave, oh, leave thy fond aspirings,
                Bid thy restless heart be still;
                Cease, oh cease, thy vain desirings,
                Only seek thy Father’s will.

                Leave behind thy faithless sorrow,
                And thine every anxious care;
                He who only knows the morrow
                Can for thee its burden bear.

                Leave behind the doubting spirit,
                And thy crushing load of sin;
                By thy mighty Saviour’s merit,
                Life eternal thou shalt win.

                Leave the darkness gathering o’er thee,
                Leave the shadow-land behind;
                Realms of glory lie before thee;
                Enter in, and welcome find.




                Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

                • Praise the Lord!

                  Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding;
                  in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.

                  Proverbs 3:5-6





                  Each Step I Take

                  Each step I take my Savior goes before me,
                  And with His loving hand He leads the way,
                  And with each breath I whisper “I adore Thee;”
                  Oh, what joy to walk with Him each day.

                  I trust in God, no matter come what may,
                  For life eternal in His hand,
                  He holds the key that opens up the way,
                  That will lead me to the promised land.

                  Each step I take I know that He will guide me;
                  To higher ground He ever leads me on.
                  Until some day the last step will be taken.
                  Each step I take just leads me closer home.




                  Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

                    Fold me in Thy love’s embrace,
                    And unto my soul reveal

                    Till my soul shall be refined,

                    Draw me closer, Lord, to Thee,
                    For my longing soul aspires
                    To discover in Thyself
                    All it yearns for and desires.

                    Draw me closer, closer, closer,

                    • Praise the Lord!
                      Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21
                      Because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
                      1 John 4:4




                      According to the Power

                      If our scanty measure were used,
                      How poor were the gifts of the Lord;
                      If our cups of thought and our pitchers of prayer
                      Were all that His love could afford.

                      But - above all our stammering tongues
                      Can voice of our deepest desire,
                      Abundant above all the pitiful good
                      To which our small minds can aspire;

                      Exceeding abundant above
                      The reach of our groveling thought;
                      So great is the fulness of knowledge and grace
                      His power to usward hath wrought.

                        Praise the Lord!

                        I am Yours.
                        Psalm 119:94

                        Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely;
                        and may your whole spirit, soul,
                        and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

                        1 Thessalonians 5:23





                        Wholly Thine

                        Thine, most gracious Lord,
                        O make me wholly Thine
                        Thine in thought, in word and deed,
                        For Thou, O Christ, art mine.

                        Wholly Thine, my Lord,
                        To go when Thou dost call;
                        Thine to yield my very self
                        In all things, great and small.

                        Wholly Thine, O Lord,
                        In every passing hour;
                        Thine in silence, Thine to speak,
                        As Thou dost grant the power.

                        Wholly Thine, O Lord,
                        To fashion as Thou wilt,
                        Strengthen, bless and keep the soul
                        Which Thou hast saved from guilt.

                        Thine, Lord, wholly Thine,
                        For ever one with Thee
                        Rooted, grounded in Thy love,
                        Abiding, sure and free.

                        Wholly Thine, wholly Thine;
                        Thou hast bought me, I am Thine;
                        Blessed Savior, Thou art mine;

                          I will mention the lovingkindnesses of the LORD and the praises of the LORD, according to all that the LORD has bestowed on us, and the great goodness toward the house of Israel, which He has bestowed on them according to His mercies, according to the multitude of His lovingkindnesses.

                          Sunday Morning Praise


                          Sweet is the Memory of Thy Grace

                          Sweet is the memory of Thy grace,
                          My God, my heav’nly king;
                          Let age to age Thy righteousness
                          In sounds of glory sing.

                          God reigns on high, but not confines
                          His goodness to the skies;
                          Through the whole earth His bounty shines,
                          And every want supplies.

                          With longing eyes Thy creatures wait
                          On Thee for daily food;
                          Thy liberal hand provides their meat,
                          And fills their mouths with good.

                          How kind are Thy compassions, Lord!
                          How slow Thine anger moves!
                          But soon He sends His pardoning word
                          To cheer the souls He loves.

                          Creatures with all their endless race
                          Thy power and praise proclaim;
                          But saints that taste Thy richer grace
                          Delight to bless Thy name.

                            The glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
                            2 Corinthians 4:6





                            The Savior’s Face

                            How sweet, O Lord, Thy word of grace
                            Which bids a sinner seek Thy face,
                            And never seek in vain;
                            That face, once set so steadfastly
                            To meet Thy cross of agony,
                            Can never me disdain.

                            Thy visage, marred and crowned with thorn,
                            Thou didst not hide from grief and scorn,
                            Nor from the dew of night;
                            Yet, in that face a love appears
                            Which scatters all my gloomy fears,
                            And fills my soul with light.

                            The heavens declare Thy power and love;
                            In all Thy works, below, above,
                            Thy majesty I trace,
                            But mercy shines not in the skies,
                            And hope within my spirit dies,
                            Until I see Thy face.

                            The brightness of Thy glory, Lord,
                            Fills Heaven and earth and written Word
                            With beams of heavenly grace;
                            But all the hosts of Heaven shine
                            With no such radiance divine
                            As Thy most blessed face.

                              The LORD is your keeper; the LORD is your shade at your right hand.
                              Psalm 121:5

                              You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.
                              Isaiah 26:3





                              In His Keeping

                              When the early morning breaking,
                              Slumber from my eyelids shaking,
                              Comes the blessed tho’t with waking,
                              I am in His keeping.
                              Day advances, labor bringing,
                              Care, her mantle ’round me flinging,
                              Yet midst all my soul keeps singing,
                              I am in His care.

                              Sometimes dark clouds hang o’er me,
                              Not one step I see before me,
                              Still, my Savior, I adore Thee,
                              I am in His keeping.
                              I can trust His hand to guide me,
                              ’Neath His wings He’ll safely hide me,
                              And no harm can e’er betide me,
                              I am in His care.

                              When gentle eventide is nearing,
                              Light from heaven disappearing,
                              Still the blessed tho’t so cheering,
                              I am in His keeping.
                              Now night’s curtains gather ’round me,
                              Yet its dangers have not found me,
                              For His angel guards surround me,
                              I am in His care.

                              I am in my Father’s keeping,
                              I am in His tender care;
                              Whether waking, whether sleeping,
                              I am in His care.

                                Music and Rest

                                Called aside – From the glad working of thy busy life,
                                From the world’s ceaseless stir of care and strife,
                                Into the shade and stillness by thy Heavenly Guide
                                For a brief space thou hast been called aside.

                                Called aside – Perhaps into a desert garden dim;
                                And yet not alone, when thou hast been with Him,
                                And heard His voice in sweetest accents say:
                                ‘Child, wilt thou not with Me this still hour stay?

                                Called aside – In hidden paths with Christ thy Lord to tread,
                                Deeper to drink at the sweet Fountainhead,
                                Closer in fellowship with Him to roam,
                                Nearer, perchance, to feel thy Heavenly Home.

                                Called aside – Oh, knowledge deeper grows with Him alone;
                                In secret of His deeper love is shown,
                                And learnt in many an hour of dark distress
                                Some rare, sweet lesson of His tenderness.

                                Called aside – We thank thee for the stillness and the shade;
                                We thank Thee for the hidden paths Thy love hath made,
                                And, so that we have wept and watched with Thee,
                                We thank Thee for our dark Gethsemane.

                                Called aside – Oh, restful thought–He doeth all things well;
                                Oh, blessed sense, with Christ alone to dwell;
                                So in the shadow of Thy cross to hide,
                                We thank Thee, Lord, to have been called aside.
