  • Praise the Lord!

    O LORD, You have searched me and known me.
    Psalm 139:1





    Thou Knowest, Lord

    Thou knowest, Lord, Thou know’st my life’s deep story,
    And all the mingled good and ill I do;
    Thou seest my shame, my few stray gleams of glory,
    Where I am false and where my soul rings true.

    Lord, I am glad Thou know’st my inmost being,
    Glad Thou dost search the secrets of my heart;
    I would not hide one folly from Thy seeing,
    Nor shun Thy healing touch to save the smart.

    Like warp and woof the good and ill are blended,
    Nor do I see the pattern that I weave;
    Yet in Thy love the whole is comprehended,
    And in Thy hand my future lot I leave.

    Only, dear Lord, make plain the path of duty;
    Let not my shame and sorrow weigh me down,
    Lest in despair I fail to see its beauty,
    And weeping vainly, miss the victor’s crown.




    Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

    Blessings, peace, grace and to all here at TOL!

    .....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

    • Evening Praise the Lord.




      Praise the Lord!

      If I say, “Surely the darkness shall fall on me,”
      Even the night shall be light about me.

      Psalm 139:11





      Round Me Falls the Night

      Round me falls the night; Savior, be my light:
      Through the hours in darkness shrouded
      Let me see Thy face unclouded;
      Let Thy glory shine in this heart of mine.

      Earthly work is done, earthly sounds are none;
      Rest in sleep and silence seeking,
      Let my hear Thee softly speaking;
      In my spirit’s ear whisper “I am near.”

      Darkened now each ray o’er the traveler’s way;
      Let me know that Thou hast found me,
      Let me feel Thine arms around me,
      Sure from every ill Thou wilt guard me still.

      Blessed heavenly light, shining through earth’s night;
      Voice, that oft of love hast told me;
      Arms, so strong to clasp and hold me;
      Thou Thy watch wilt keep, Savior, o’er my sleep.




      Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

      • Praise the Lord!

        I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
        Marvelous are Your works,
        And that my soul knows very well.

        Psalm 139:14





        All That I am I Owe to Thee

        All that I am I owe to Thee,
        Thy wisdom, Lord, has fashioned me;
        I give my Maker thankful praise,
        Whose wondrous works my soul amaze.

        Ere into being I was brought,
        Thine eye did see, and in Thy thought
        My life in all its perfect plan
        Was ordered ere my days began.

        Thy thoughts, O God, how manifold,
        More precious unto me than gold!
        I muse on their infinity,
        Awaking I am still with Thee.

        Search me, O God, my heart discern,
        Try me, my inmost thought to learn;
        And lead me, if in sin I stray,
        To choose the everlasting way.




        Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

          Praise the Lord!

          I will both lie down in peace, and sleep;
          For You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.

          Psalm 4:8





          When I Slumber

          When I slumber at the end of this glorious the golden day,
          Then teach me, Lord, to number its hours in wisdom’s way.
          When clouds at dawn are gleaming, lift up mine answering eyes
          To where Thy light is streaming on faith’s high enterprise.

          While all the heights are calling and skies are blithe and blue,
          Keep Thou my feet from falling, my heart’s ambitions true.
          Let simple pleasures cheer me when every goal seems far;
          Reveal Thyself as near me as life and duty are.

          And when the light is fading, if dreams have not come true,
          Yet breathe Thy peace pervading the twilight through and through.
          When life’s long day is ended and shadows closer creep,
          Lord, let me feel befriended before I go to sleep.




          Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

          • Praise the Lord!
            Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. 1 Corinthians 13:1-3
            Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God.
            1 John 4:7





            Sunday Morning Praise


            Though I Speak

            Though I speak in every language, prophesy for God above,
            Though I understand all mysteries,I am nothing without love.
            Though through faith I can move mountains, give the poor all that I gain,
            Though I’m burned alive for Jesus, without love, my life is vain.

            Love is patient, kind, and selfless, envies not, nor boasts in pride,
            Is not rude or quickly angered, never holds a grudge inside.
            Love does not delight in evil, but with truth rejoices e’er;
            Trusts, protects, and hopes forever, perseveres and always cares.

            One day prophecies will finish, tongues will in that day be stilled;
            Knowledge, too, will pass forever, when God’s Word is all fulfilled.
            Now we only know a fraction, and as children think and speak;
            When perfection comes upon us, childish ways no more we’ll seek.

            Now we see as in a mirror, in a blurred and hazy way.
            But reflections soon will vanish, face to face we’ll see some day.
            In that day we’ll all know fully, as we’re known by God above;
            Till then, faith, hope, love still linger, but the greatest far is love.




            And now abide faith, hope, love, these three;
            but the greatest of these is love.

            1 Corinthians 13:13

              Praise the Lord!

              Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love.
              Jeremiah 31:3




              Thy Ceaseless, Unexhausted Love

              Thy ceaseless, unexhausted love, unmerited and free,
              Delights our evil to remove, and help our misery.
              Thou waitest to be gracious still, Thou dost with sinners bear,
              That, saved, we may Thy goodness feel, and all Thy grace declare.

              Thy goodness and Thy truth to me to every soul, abound,
              A vast, unfathomable sea, where all our thoughts are drowned.
              Its streams the whole creation reach, so plenteous is the store,
              Enough for all, enough for each, enough for evermore.

              Faithful, O Lord, Thy mercies are! A rock that cannot move!
              A thousand promises declare Thy constancy of love.
              Throughout the universe it reigns, unalterably sure;
              And while the truth of God remains, the goodness must endure.

                Let your light so shine before men,
                that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

                Matthew 5:16





                Give Me. O Lord, A Heart of Grace

                Give me, O Lord, a heart of grace,
                A voice of joy, a shining face,
                That I may show, where’er I turn,
                Thy love within my soul doth burn.

                Though life be sweet and joy be dear,
                Be in my mind a quiet fear,
                A patient strength in pain and care,
                An enmity to dark despair.

                A tenderness for all that stray,
                With strength to help them on the way,
                A cheerfulness, a heav’nly mirth
                Brightening my steps along the earth.

                  He will be our guide even to the end.
                  Psalm 48:14





                  Guide Me

                  Hide not Thy face, O Lord of Grace, Thou who hast tasted woe;
                  Guide me, guide me, in this world of woe;
                  Thro’ error’s night lend Thou Thy light to guide me as I go!

                  On Calv’ry’s tree a thief to Thee turned his repentant eyes,
                  Guide me, guide me, guard me with Thine eyes,
                  And for the gloom of death’s dark doom Thou gavest Paradise!

                  E’en so thro’ tears of burdened years earth’s children cry to Thee,
                  Guide me, guide me, hear my cry to Thee,
                  Whose blood was spilt that human guilt be pardoned, full and free!

                  Contrite they plead their every need, Thy grace will e’en fulfill,
                  Guide me, guide me, that I do Thy will,
                  To life’s last breath, thro’ gloom of death, guide Thou the wayward still!

                  • 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





                    Weary Not In Well Doing

                    Let us be patient, patient,
                    Think of the growing grain,
                    How long it lies in the darksome earth,
                    Nurtured by sun and rain.

                    Let us be patient, patient,
                    Strive as the grain to grow;
                    The tender grass and the ripening ear,
                    Heralds the corn we know.

                    Let us be patient, patient,
                    Day after day to gain,
                    Till fully ripe all our sheaves may be
                    Gathered like golden grain.

                    Waiting, praying, striving day by day,
                    Something to do for the Master’s sake,
                    Something for Him to say.

                      In such a self-forgetful way
                      That even when I kneel to pray

                      And when my work on earth is done,
                      And my new work in Heav’n’s begun,
                      May I forget the crown I’ve won,
                      While thinking still of — Others.

                        Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing,
                        that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

                        Romans 15:13





                        Trusting and Hoping

                        I am rejoicing, trusting and hoping;
                        Looking to Jesus, Savior divine;
                        He is my refuge; softly He whispers,
                        I have redeemed thee, child, thou art Mine.

                        I am rejoicing, trusting and hoping;
                        He is my Savior; what shall I fear?
                        He like a shepherd leadeth me gently,
                        Close by the waters flowing so clear.

                        I am rejoicing, trusting and hoping;
                        Into the mansions waiting above,
                        Clothed in His brightness, He will receive me,
                        Heir to His kingdom, child of His love.

                        I am rejoicing, ever rejoicing,
                        Trusting and hoping all the day long;
                        Looking to Jesus, only to Jesus;
                        He is my refuge, comfort and song.




                        Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

                        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

                          Praise the Lord!

                          Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.
                          John 14:1

                          O LORD my God, in You I put my trust.
                          Psalm 7:1





                          Trusting Thee

                          I am trusting, Lord, in Thee;
                          Though the night is cold and dark,
                          And the raging, stormy sea
                          Threatens to engulf my bark.

                          Long the journey, rough the main,
                          Still the harbor far away —
                          And I toil in numbing pain,
                          Through the billows’ icy spray.

                          Though Thy purposes seem dark,
                          Thou art faithful to perform.
                          And Thou bid’st me to embark,
                          And cross over in the storm.

                          So, obeying Thy command,
                          I am trusting, Lord, in Thee.
                          I am weary, far from land,
                          But salvation I shall see.

                          I am trusting, Lord in Thee,
                          I am trusting, Lord in Thee,
                          Trusting Thee, trusting Thee,
                          I am trusting all to Thee.

                          • Praise the Lord!

                            Let your light so shine before men,
                            that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

                            Matthew 5:16





                            Be a Cheering Light

                            As thro’ life you journey, be a cheering light,
                            Like the sun at morning, beautiful and bright;
                            Shine in gloomy places, as you pass them by,
                            Cheer the lives that sorrow, gladden those who sigh.

                            Like a beacon burning on a hill at night,
                            You may shed around you happiness and light;
                            Try to help the weary, thro’ the dreary days,
                            Try to guide the wayward, from forbidden ways.

                            Steadily and brightly, shining day by day,
                            You will scatter blessings all along the way;
                            Less of care and sorrow, many hearts will know,
                            If you gleam and glisten everywhere you go.

                            Daily, hourly, be a cheering light,
                            Glowing, gleaming, beautiful and bright;
                            Like a beacon burning in the night,
                            Glowing, gleaming, beautiful and bright.

                              Praise the Lord!
                              But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. Matthew 6:6




                              The Simple, Earnest Prayer

                              In the twilight of the morning,
                              When the shadows steal away,
                              And we wake from balmy slumber
                              To behold another day,
                              Let us go alone in secret,
                              And unburden all our care
                              At the feet of our Redeemer,
                              In the simple, earnest prayer.

                              In the noontide, calm and peaceful,
                              When we pause awhile to rest,
                              Ere the sun in all its glory
                              Is declining towards the west;
                              In the midst of our temptation,
                              When the cross is hard to bear,
                              If we cannot go in secret,
                              God will hear the silent prayer.

                              When the toils of day are over,
                              And we seek the hallowed place
                              Where by faith we meet our Savior,
                              And adore Him for His grace;
                              How we feel our burden lighter,
                              Till we loose our weight of care,
                              While we lift our hearts together
                              In the simple, earnest prayer.

                              Let Thy presence, blessed Savior,
                              Our protection ever be;
                              Give us strength for every trial,
                              Keep, oh, keep us close to Thee.

                                Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing.
                                Luke 5:5





                                Hear Us, O Lord

                                Hear us, O Lord, from Heaven Thy dwelling place:
                                Like them of old, in vain we toil all the day and night,
                                Unless with us Thou go, who art the Light,
                                Come then, O Lord, that we may see Thy face.
                                Thou, Lord, doest rule the raging of the sea,
                                When loud the storm and furious is the gale:
                                Strong is Thine arm; our little barques are frail:
                                Send us Thy help; remember Galilee.

                                Our wives and children we commend to Thee:
                                For them we plough the land and plough the deep;
                                For them by day the golden corn we reap,
                                By night the silver harvest of the sea.
                                We thank Thee, Lord, for sunshine, dew and rain,
                                Broadcast from heaven by Thine almighty hand —
                                Source of all life, unnumbered as the sand —
                                Bird, beast, and fish, herb, fruit and golden grain.

                                O Bread of Life, Thou in Thy Word hast said,
                                Who feeds in faith on Me shall never die!
                                In mercy hear Thy hungry children’s cry —
                                Father, give us this day our daily bread!
                                Sow in our hearts the seeds of Thy dear love,
                                That we may reap contentment, joy, and peace;
                                And when at last our earthly labors cease,
                                Grant us to join Thy harvest home above.
