    Praise the Lord!

    Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise.
    Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.

    Psalm 100:4

    Bless the LORD, O my soul;
    And all that is within me, bless His holy name!

    Psalm 103:1





    Sunday Morning Praise


    O Bless the Lord, My Soul!

    O bless the Lord, my soul!
    His grace to thee proclaim!
    And all that is within me join
    To bless His holy name!
    O bless the Lord, my soul!
    His mercies bear in mind!
    Forget not all His benefits!
    The Lord to thee is kind.

    He will not always chide;
    He will with patience wait;
    His wrath is ever slow to rise,
    And ready to abate.
    He pardons all thy sins;
    Prolongs thy feeble breath;
    He healeth thine infirmities,
    And ransoms thee from death.

    He clothes thee with His love;
    Upholds thee with His truth;
    And like the eagle He renews
    The vigor of thy youth.
    Then bless His holy name,
    Whose grace hath made thee whole,
    Whose lovingkindness crowns thy days!
    O bless the Lord, my soul!




    Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

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

      Evening Praise the Lord.




      Praise the Lord!

      Yes, He is altogether lovely.
      Song of Solomon 5:16

      Who is this…fair as the moon, bright as the sun, majestic as the stars?
      Song of Solomon 6:10





      Fairest Lord Jesus

      Fairest Lord Jesus, ruler of all nature,
      O Thou of God and man the Son,
      Thee will I cherish, Thee will I honor,
      Thou, my soul’s glory, joy and crown.

      Fair are the meadows, fairer still the woodlands,
      Robed in the blooming garb of spring;
      Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer,
      Who makes the woeful heart to sing.

      Fair is the sunshine,
      Fairer still the moonlight,
      And all the twinkling starry host;
      Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer
      Than all the angels Heav’n can boast.

      All fairest beauty, heavenly and earthly,
      Wondrously, Jesus, is found in Thee;
      None can be nearer, fairer or dearer,
      Than Thou, my Savior, art to me.

      Beautiful Savior! Lord of all the nations!
      Son of God and Son of Man!
      Glory and honor, praise, adoration,
      Now and forever more be Thine.




      Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

        Praise the Lord!

        Therefore, for Your name's sake,
        Lead me and guide me.

        Psalm 31:3





        I Do Not Ask, O Lord

        I do not ask, O Lord, that life may be a pleasant road;
        I do not ask that Thou wouldst take from me aught of its load.
        I do not ask that flowers should always spring beneath my feet;
        I know too well the poison and the sting of things too sweet.

        For one thing, only Lord, dear Lord, I plead: lead me aright,
        Though strength should falter and heart should bleed, through peace to light.
        I do not ask, O Lord, that Thou shouldst shed full radiance here
        Give but a ray of peace, that I may tread without a fear.

        I do not ask my cross to understand, my way to see,
        Better in darkness just to feel Thy hand, and follow Thee.
        Joy is like restless day; but peace divine like quiet night,
        Lead me, O Lord, till perfect day shall shine, through peace to light.




        Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

          Praise the Lord!

          You shall hide them in the secret place of Your presence.
          Psalm 31:20

          He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
          Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

          Psalm 91:1





          In the Secret Place of God

          He that dwelleth in the secret place of God, Most High,
          When the days of biting bitterness and travail draweth nigh,
          With the crimsoned lintel over and the sheltering solace sure,
          Doth abide beneath the shadow of Omnipotence, secure.

          He a fortress is and refuge unto all who trust;
          From the fowler’s snare and pestilence He ransometh the just;
          His truth is shield and buckler, so the potent promise rings,
          And there’s rest, delight and safety ’neath the cover of His wings.

          He that said it: “I will answer him who calls on Me;
          Will honor and deliver him; from trouble set him free;
          Because his love is on Me still, My name to glorify,
          I will save and satisfy him, and will give him life on high.”

          Art thou dwelling in this hiding, underneath the sprinkled blood?
          Is thy soul, by grace abiding “In the secret place of God?”
          There is fullness there, and sweetness, all thy pow’rs find full employ,
          Gladness, comforting, completeness, peace, and everlasting joy.




          Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

            Praise the Lord!

            The appearance of His face was altered,
            and His robe became white and glistening.

            Luke 9:29





            Not Always on the Mount

            Not always on the mount may we
            Rapt in the heav’nly vision be:
            The shores of thought and feeling know
            The Spirit’s tidal ebb and flow.

            Lord it is good abiding here,
            We cry, the heav’nly presence near:
            The vision vanishes, our eyes
            Are lifted into vacant skies.

            Yet hath one such exalted hour
            Upon the soul redeeming power,
            And its strength, through after days,
            We travel our appointed ways,

            Till all the lowly vale grows bright,
            Transfigured in remembered light,
            And in untiring souls we bear
            The freshness of the upper air.

            The mount for vision: but below
            The paths of daily duty go,
            And nobler life therein shall own
            The pattern on the mountain shown.

              Evening Praise the Lord.




              Praise the Lord!

              Master, it is good for us to be here.
              Luke 9:33





              O Master, It Is Good To Be

              O Master, it is good to be high on the mountain here with Thee,
              Where stand revealed to mortal gaze those glorious saints of other days,
              Who once received on Horeb’s height the eternal laws of truth and right,
              Or caught the still small whisper, higher than storm, than earthquake, or than fire.

              O Master, it is good to be with Thee, and with Thy faithful three;
              Here, where the Apostle’s heart of rock is nerved against temptation’s shock;
              Here, where the Son of Thunder learns the thought that breathes, and word that burns;
              Here, where on eagle wings we move with him whose last best creed is love.

              O Master, it is good to be entranced, enwrapt, alone with Thee;
              And watch Thy glistening raiment glow whiter than Hermon’s whitest snow;
              The human lineaments that shine irradiant with a light divine;
              Till we too change from grace to grace, gazing on that transfigured face.

              O Master, it is good to be here on the holy mount with Thee;
              When darkling in the depths of night, when dazzled with excess of light,
              We bow before the heavenly voice that bids bewildered souls rejoice,
              Though love wax cold, and faith be dim, this is My Son, O hear ye Him.

                Praise the Lord!

                But You, O Lord, are a God full of compassion, and gracious,
                longsuffering and abundant in mercy and truth.

                Psalm 86:15

                And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another,
                just as God in Christ forgave you.

                Ephes. 4:32





                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.

                  Evening Praise the Lord.




                  Praise the Lord!

                  I know whom I have believed and am persuaded
                  that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day.

                  2 Timothy 1:12





                  I Know Whom I Have Believed

                  I know not why God’s wondrous grace
                  To me He hath made known,
                  Nor why, unworthy, Christ in love
                  Redeemed me for His own.

                  I know not how this saving faith
                  To me He did impart,
                  Nor how believing in His Word
                  Wrought peace within my heart.

                  I know not how the Spirit moves,
                  Convincing us of sin,
                  Revealing Jesus through the Word,
                  Creating faith in Him.

                  I know not what of good or ill
                  May be reserved for me,
                  Of weary ways or golden days,
                  Before His face I see.

                  I know not when my Lord may come,
                  At night or noonday fair,
                  Nor if I walk the vale with Him,
                  Or meet Him in the air.

                  But I know whom I have believed,
                  And am persuaded that He is able
                  To keep that which I’ve committed
                  Unto Him against that day.

                    Galatians 6:7





                    You’ll Reap Whatsoever You Sow

                    Sow flowers, and flowers will blossom
                    Around you wherever you go;
                    Sow weeds, and of weeds reap the harvest,
                    You’ll reap whatsoever you sow.

                    Sow blessings, and blessings will ripen,
                    Sow hatred, and hatred will grow;
                    Sow mercy and reap sweet compassion,
                    You’ll reap whatsoever you sow.

                    Sow love, and its sweetness uprising
                    Shall fill all your heart with its glow;
                    Sow hope, and receive its fruition,
                    You’ll reap whatsoever you sow.

                    In faith sow the word of the Master,
                    A blessing He’ll surely bestow;
                    And souls shine like stars for your crowning,
                    You’ll reap whatsoever you sow.

                    Preach Christ in His wonderful fullness,
                    That all His salvation may know;
                    Reap life thro’ the ages eternal,
                    You’ll reap whatsoever you sow.

                    You’ll reap whatsoever you sow,
                    Yes, you’ll reap whatsoever you sow,
                    The harvest is certainly coming,
                    You’ll reap whatsoever you sow.

                      Praise the Lord!

                      He found nothing but leaves.
                      Mark 11:13





                      Nothing But Leaves

                      Nothing but leaves! The Spirit grieves
                      O’er years of wasted life;
                      O’er sins indulged while conscience slept,
                      O’er vows and promises unkept,
                      And reap, from years of strife
                      Nothing but leaves!

                      Nothing but leaves! No gathered sheaves
                      Of life’s fair rip’ning grain:
                      We sow our seeds; lo! tares and weeds,
                      Words, idle words, for earnest deeds
                      Then reap, with toil and pain,
                      Nothing but leaves!

                      Nothing but leaves! Sad mem’ry weaves
                      No veil to hide the past;
                      And as we trace our weary way,
                      And count each lost and misspent day,
                      We sadly find at last
                      Nothing but leaves!

                      Ah, who shall thus the Master meet,
                      And bring but withered leaves?
                      Ah, who shall, at the Savior’s feet,
                      Before the awful judgment seat,
                      Lay down, for golden sheaves
                      Nothing but leaves!




                      Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

                        Praise the Lord!

                        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.




                        Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

                          Evening Praise the Lord.




                          Praise the Lord!

                          Ever the silver cord be loosed…then shall the dust return to the earth as it was,
                          and the spirit shall return to God who gave it.

                          Ecclesiastes 12:6-7

                          For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves;
                          it is the gift of God.

                          Ephesians 2:8





                          Saved by Grace
                          (My Soul’s Hymn)

                          Some day the silver cord will break,
                          And I no more as now shall sing;
                          But oh, the joy when I shall wake
                          Within the palace of the King!

                          Some day my earthly house will fall.
                          I cannot tell how soon ’twill be;
                          But this I know—my All in All
                          Has now a place in Heav’n for me.

                          Some day, when fades the golden sun
                          Beneath the rosy tinted west,
                          My blessed Lord will say, Well done!
                          And I shall enter into rest.

                          Some day, till then I’ll watch and wait,
                          My lamp all trimmed and burning bright,
                          That when my Savior opens the gate,
                          My soul to Him may take its flight.

                          And I shall see Him face to face,
                          And tell the story—Saved by grace;
                          And I shall see Him face to face,
                          And tell the story—Saved by grace.

                            Oh, the unsearchable riches of Christ,
                            Wealth that can never be told!

                            Pearls that the poorest may wear!

                            Freely, how freely they flow,
                            Making the souls of the faithful and true

                              Praise the Lord!

                              The love of Christ which passes knowledge.
                              Ephesians 3:19





                              It Passes Knowledge

                              It passes knowledge, that dear love of Thine!
                              My Jesus! Savior! yet this soul of mine
                              Would of that love, in all its depth and length,
                              Its height and breadth, and everlasting strength
                              Know more and more.

                              It passes telling! that dear love of Thine!
                              My Jesus! Savior! yet these lips of mine
                              Would fain proclaim to sinners far and near
                              A love which can remove all guilty fear,
                              And love beget.

                              It passes praises! that dear love of Thine!
                              My Jesus! Savior yet this heart of mine
                              Would sing a love so rich, so full, so free,
                              Which brought an undone sinner, such as me,
                              Right home to God.

                              But though I cannot tell, or sing, or know,
                              The fullness of Thy love while here below,
                              My empty vessel I may freely bring:
                              O Thou, who art of love the living spring,
                              My vessel fill.

                              I am an empty vessel not one thought,
                              Or look of love to Thee I ever brought;
                              Yet I may come, and come again to Thee,
                              With this the empty sinner’s only plea
                              “Thou lovest me!”

                              Oh! fill me Jesus Savior with Thy love;
                              Lead, lead me to the living fount above!
                              Thither may I in simple faith draw nigh
                              And never to another fountain fly,
                              But unto Thee.

                              And when my Jesus face to face I see,
                              When at His lofty throne I bow the knee,
                              Then of His love, in all its breadth and length,
                              Its height and depth, its everlasting strength,
                              My soul shall sing.

                                Psalm 17:8





                                Sunday Morning Praise


                                Thou Tender, Gracious Father

                                Thou tender, gracious Father,
                                Who watches over me,
                                How shall I ever praise Thee,
                                How love and honor Thee?
                                Thou guidest me with caution
                                From every secret snare,
                                And ’neath Thy wings a refuge
                                I find in my despair.

                                With raiment, food and shelter,
                                Whate’er my needs imply,
                                For soul and body ever,
                                Do Thou in grace supply.
                                O Lord, I soon would perish
                                If aught Thou should exclude;
                                O could I love Thee better
                                And prove my gratitude.

                                In childlike, true obedience
                                Help me to do the right;
                                May precious be Thy statutes,
                                Thy yoke be pleasant light!
                                And when some hardship threatens,
                                A danger frightens me,
                                May Thou in all my trials
                                My present helper be.

                                Thy heart is all compassion,
                                With love it overflows;
                                Whate’er of ill betide me,
                                Thou knowest, and my woes.
                                Thou dost not sleep nor slumber,
                                By night nor thru the days;

                                .....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
