  • Praise the Lord!

    Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life,
    what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on.
    Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?

    Matthew 6:25





    Do Not Worry

    Do not worry for your life,
    What you’ll eat or drink or wear;
    Is not life much more important
    Than these things that cause you care?
    See the birds — they sow and reap not,
    Nor in barns do store away.
    Yet your heav’nly Father feeds them;
    Have you not more worth than they?

    And why worry about clothing?
    See the lilies’ glad array;
    Solomon in all his splendor
    Never dressed as fine as they.
    This is how God clothes the grasses,
    Though their life is but a day.
    Will He not much more meet your needs?
    Let your faith not fade away.

    So I tell you, do not worry,
    Asking what you’ll eat or drink.
    Nor be anxious about clothing —
    These are things that all men seek.
    And your Father knows you need them;
    Worry won’t command His power.
    Which of you by constant fretting
    Adds to life a single hour?

    Seek first, then, your Father’s kingdom
    And His righteousness on high.
    All these things will then be given;
    God will not neglect your cry.
    So fret not about tomorrow;
    God directs the future, too.
    Though each day will bring its troubles,
    Trust in Him — He’ll see you through.




    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!

      Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns;
      yet your heavenly Father feeds them.
      Are you not of more value than they?

      Matthew 6:26





      My Heav’nly Father Watches Over Me

      I trust in God wherever I may be,
      Upon the land, or on the rolling sea,
      For come what may, from day to day,
      My heav’nly Father watches over me.

      He makes the rose an object of His care,
      He guides the eagle thro’ the pathless air,
      And surely He remembers me;
      My heav’nly Father watches over me.

      I trust in God, for, in the lion’s den,
      On battlefield, or in the prison pen,
      Thro’ praise or blame, thro’ flood or flame,
      My heav’nly Father watches over me.

      The valley may be dark, the shadows deep,
      But O, the Shepherd guards His lonely sheep;
      And thro’ the gloom He’ll lead me home,
      My heav’nly Father watches over me.

      I trust in God, I know He cares for me;
      On mountain bleak or on the stormy sea;
      Tho’ billows roll, He keeps my soul;
      My heav’nly Father watches over me.




      Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

      • Praise the Lord!

        My voice You shall hear in the morning, O LORD.
        And in the morning my prayer comes before You.
        Psalm 5:3 ~ Psalm 88:13

        Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight,
        He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed.

        My times are in Your hand.
        Mark 1:35 ~ Psalm 31:15


        In the holy hush of the early dawn I hear a Voice
        “I am with you all the day, Rejoice! Rejoice!”






        The Lord’s Times

        In the early morning hours,
        ’Twixt the night and day,
        While from earth the darkness passes
        Silently away…

        Then ’tis sweet to talk with Jesus
        In thy chamber still
        For the coming day and duties
        Ask to know His will,

        Then He’ll lead the way before you,
        Mountains laying low;
        Making desert places blossom,
        Sweet’ning Marah’s flow,

        Would you know this life of triumph,
        Victory all the way?
        Then put God in the beginning
        Of each coming day.




        Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

          Praise the Lord!

          My times are in Your hand.
          Psalm 31:15
          LORD, make me to know my end, and what is the measure of my days,
          That I may know how frail I am.

          Psalm 39:4
          So teach us to number our days,
          That we may gain a heart of wisdom.

          Psalm 90:12





          My Times Are in Thy Hand

          My times are in Thy hand;
          My God, I wish them there;
          My life, my friends, my soul I leave
          Entirely to Thy care.
          My times are in Thy hand;
          Whatever they may be;
          Pleasing or painful, dark or bright,
          As best may seem to Thee.

          My times are in Thy hand;
          Why should I doubt or fear?
          My Father’s hand will never cause
          His child a needless tear.
          My times are in Thy hand,
          Jesus, the crucified!
          Those hands my cruel sins had pierced
          Are now my guard and guide.

          My times are in Thy hand,
          Jesus, my advocate:
          Nor shall Thine hand be stretched in vain,
          For me to supplicate.
          My times are in Thy hand,
          I’ll always trust in Thee;
          And, after death, at Thy right hand
          I shall forever be.

            I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify Him with thanksgiving.
            Psalm 69:30

            It is good to give thanks to the LORD, and to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
            to declare Your lovingkindness in the morning, and Your faithfulness every night.

            Psalm 92:1-2

            Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.
            Psalm 95:2


            So we, Your people and sheep of Your pasture,
            will give You thanks forever;
            We will show forth Your praise to all generations.

            Psalm 79:13





            We Lift Our Hearts in Thanks Today

            We lift our hearts in thanks today
            For all the gifts of life;
            And first, for peace that turns away
            The enemies of strife;

            And next, the beauty of the earth,
            Its flowers and lovely things,
            The spring’s great miracle of birth,
            With sound of songs and wings;

            Then, harvests of its teeming soil
            In orchard, croft and field;
            But more, the service and the toil
            Of those who helped them yield;

            And most, the gifts of hope and love,
            Of wisdom, truth and right,
            The gifts that shine like stars above
            To chart the world by night.

            As we receive, so let us give,
            With ready, generous hand,
            Rich fruitage from the lives we live
            To bless our home and land.

              Praise the Lord!

              He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
              Psalm 91:1

              He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge.
              Psalm 91:4





              Now Rest Beneath Night’s Shadow

              Now rest beneath night’s shadow the woodland, field, and meadow,
              The world in slumber lies, but Thou, my heart, awake thee,
              To prayer and song betake thee, let praise to thy creator rise.
              The radiant sun hath vanished, His golden rays are banished
              By night, the foe of day — but Christ, the sun of gladness,
              Dispelling all my sadness, within my heart holds constant sway.

              The rule of day is over and shining jewels cover
              The heaven’s boundless blue, thus I shall shine in heaven,
              Where crowns of gold are given to all who faithful prove and true.
              To rest my body hasteth, aside its garments casteth,
              Types of mortality, these I put off and ponder
              How Christ will give me yonder a robe of glorious majesty.

              Lord Jesus, who dost love me, oh, spread Thy wings above me
              And shield me from alarm, though evil would assail me,
              Thy mercy will not fail me: I rest in Thy protecting arm.
              My loved ones, rest securely, for God this night will surely
              From peril guard your heads — sweet slumbers may He send you,
              And bid His hosts attend you and through the night watch o’er your beds.

                For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness.
                Psalm 107:9



                Three things make us happy and content:
                the seeing eye, the hearing ear, and the responsive heart.






                Satisfied

                I have tasted heaven’s manna, and I want no other bread.
                In green pastures I am dwelling, and my hung’ring soul is fed.
                At the living fount of waters, I have quenched my thirst for aye.
                I am living in God’s glory, and my sins are washed away.

                All my life I had a longing for a drink from some clear spring,
                That I hoped would quench the burning of the thirst I felt within.
                Feeding on the husks around me, till my strength was almost gone,
                Longed my soul for something better, only still to hunger on.

                Poor I was, and sought for riches, something that would satisfy,
                But the dust I gathered round me only mocked my soul’s sad cry.
                Well of water, ever springing, Bread of Life so rich and free,
                Untold wealth that never faileth, My Redeemer is to me.

                Hallelujah! I have found Him whom my soul so long has craved!
                Jesus satisfies my longings, through His blood the price was paid.
                Hallelujah! Yes! I have found Him! Whom my soul so long has craved!
                Jesus truly satisfies my longings, through His blood I now am saved.

                  Let not your heart be troubled.
                  John 14:1
                  Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world. John 16:33
                  Abide in Me, and I in you.
                  John 15:4





                  In Jesus

                  In the world, tribulation; but in Jesus peace;
                  The heart of the whirlwind where its roarings cease,
                  A little home waiting, still and light and warm,
                  A safe sanctuary from the night and storm.

                  In the world, tribulation; but in Jesus rest;
                  A sure place of refuge for the sore-opprest,
                  A guarded pavilion no device can take,
                  A strong-walled fortress no assault can shake.

                  In the world tribulation; but in Jesus joy;
                  A full cup of gladness that can never cloy,
                  A sweet fountain rising out of Marrah’s tide,
                  A spring of rejoicing that is never dried.

                  In the world, tribulation; but in Jesus peace;
                  A deep, quiet harbor where the high waves cease,
                  A long-desired haven on a friendly shore,
                  Where the wild winds of oceans sweep the soul no more.

                  In the world, tribulation, trials all around,
                  For on earth no resting and no joys are found;
                  Let us flee to Jesus where all sorrows cease;
                  Here alone is gladness, here alone is peace.

                    The Father of mercies.
                    2 Corinthians 1:3

                    Let Your mercies come also to me, O LORD…according to Your word.
                    Psalm 119:41





                    Father of Mercies, in Thy Word

                    Father of mercies, in Thy Word what endless glory shines!
                    Forever be Thy Name adored for these celestial lines.
                    Here may the wretched sons of want exhaustless riches find;
                    Riches above what earth can grant, and lasting as the mind.

                    Here the fair tree of knowledge grows and yields a free repast;
                    And richer fruits than nature shows invite the longing taste.
                    Amidst these gloomy wilds below, when dark and sad we stray,
                    Here beams of Heaven relieve our woe, and guide to endless day.

                    Here springs of consolation rise to cheer the fainting mind,
                    And thirsty souls receive supplies, and sweet refreshment find.
                    Here the Redeemer’s welcome voice spreads heavenly peace around
                    And life and everlasting joys attend the blissful sound.

                    Oh, may these hallowed pages be our joy by day and night,
                    And still new beauties may we see, and still increasing light.
                    Divine Instructor, gracious Lord, O grant our fervent prayer,
                    Teach us to love Thy sacred Word, and view our Savior there.

                      With all my powers, to serve the Lord:
                      Nor from His precepts e’er depart,
                      Whose service is a rich reward.

                      O be His service all my joy;
                      Around let my example shine
                      Till others love the best employ
                      And join in labors so divine.

                      Be this the purpose of my soul,
                      My solemn, my determined choice,
                      To yield to His supreme control,
                      And in His kind commands rejoice.

                      O may I never faint nor tire,
                      Nor wandering leave His sacred ways;
                      Great God, accept my soul’s desire,
                      And give me strength to live Thy praise.




                      Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

                        How great is the sum of them!

                        Sunday Morning Praise


                        In Thankful Remembrance

                        What shall I render to Thy name or how Thy praises speak?
                        My thanks how shall I testify, O Lord, Thou know’st I’m weak.
                        I owe so much, so little can return unto Thy name,
                        Confusion seizes on my soul, and I am filled with shame.

                        O Thou that hearest prayers, Lord, to Thee shall come all flesh
                        Thou hast me heard and answered, my complaints have had access.
                        What did I ask for but Thou gav’st, what could I more desire?
                        But thankfulness even all my days I humbly this require.

                        Thy mercies, Lord, have been so great in number numberless,
                        Impossible for to recount or any way express.
                        O help Thy us that seek Thy face to return unto Thee praise
                        And walk before Thee as they ought, in strict and upright ways.




                        Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

                          Praise the Lord!

                          Yes, He is altogether lovely.
                          Song 5:16

                          Delight yourself also in the LORD.
                          Psalm 37:4





                          Thou Lovely Source of True Delight

                          Thou lovely Source of true delight,
                          Whom I unseen adore;
                          Unveil Thy beauties to my sight,
                          That I may love Thee more.

                          Thy glory o’er creation shines;
                          But in Thy sacred Word,
                          I read in fairer, brighter lines,
                          My bleeding, dying Lord.

                          ’Tis here, whene’er my comforts droop,
                          And sins and sorrows rise,
                          Thy love with cheerful beams of hope,
                          My fainting heart supplies.

                          Jesus, my Lord, my Life, my Light,
                          O come with blissful ray;
                          Break radiant through the shades of night,
                          And chase my fears away.

                          Then shall my soul with rapture trace
                          The wonders of Thy love;
                          But the full glories of Thy face
                          Are only known above.

                            In the shadow of His hand He has hidden me.
                            Isaiah 49:2





                            In the Hollow of His Hand

                            In the hollow of His hand He will hide me
                            When doubt and sin draw near,
                            Though no earthly friend may walk beside me,
                            I rest secure from fear.

                            In the hollow of His hand He will hide me
                            When the storm is on the deep,
                            And I know whatever may betide me,
                            His vigil He will keep.

                            In the hollow of His hand He will hide me
                            When the storms of life sweep by,
                            To the harbor safe He will guide me,
                            Where His blessed safe rest lie.

                            I know whate’er betide me,
                            His hand will safely guide me,
                            His love will ever hide me
                            In the hollow of His hand.

                              I will not forget you.
                              Isaiah 49:15

                              (Deuteronomy 31:6, Deuteronomy 31:8, Joshua 1:5)





                              I Will Not Forget Thee

                              Sweet is the promise “I will not forget thee,”
                              Nothing can molest or turn my soul away;
                              E’en though the night be dark within the valley,
                              Just beyond is shining an eternal day.

                              Trusting the promise “I will not forget thee,”
                              Onward I will go with songs of joy and love,
                              Though earth despise me, though my friends forsake me,
                              I shall be remembered in my home above.

                              When at the golden portals I am standing,
                              All my tribulations, all my sorrows past;
                              How sweet to hear the blessed proclamation,
                              “Enter, faithful servant, welcome home at last.”

                              I will not forget thee or leave thee,
                              In My hands I’ll hold thee,
                              In My arms I’ll fold thee,
                              I will not forget thee or leave thee;
                              I am thy Redeemer, I will care for thee.

                                So be ready in the morning…and present yourself to Me there on the top of the mountain.
                                And no one shall come up with you.

                                My voice You shall hear in the morning, O LORD;
                                In the morning I will direct it to You, And I will look up.

                                Psalm 5:3

                                (Psalm 119:147, Psalm 143:8)





                                Meet Him in the Morning

                                Begin the day with God!
                                He is thy Sun and Day!
                                His is the radiance of thy dawn;
                                To Him address thy lay.

                                Sing a new song at morn!
                                Join the glad woods and hills;
                                Join the fresh winds and seas and plains,
                                Join the bright flowers and rills.

                                Sing thy first song to God!
                                Not to thy fellow men;
                                Not to the creatures of His hand,
                                But to the glorious One.

                                Take thy first walk with God!
                                Let Him go forth with thee;
                                By stream, or sea, or mountain path,
                                Seek still His company.

                                Thy first transaction be
                                With God Himself above;
                                So shall thy business prosper well,
                                And all the day be love.
