  • Evening Praise the Lord.




    Praise the Lord!

    Be clothed with humility, for God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.
    1 Peter 5:5





    Clothe Yourself With Humilty

    Clothe yourself with humility;
    Don’t try to take first place.
    For God opposes all the proud,
    But gives the humble grace.
    Humble yourself beneath God’s hand;
    Someday He’ll lift you high.
    Cast your anxiety on Him;
    His care will never die.

    Be self-controlled and on alert;
    Satan is prowling round.
    He’s like a lion seeking prey;
    Stand firm and don’t give ground.
    Stand firm and steadfast in the faith;
    You’re not alone in trial.
    Your Christian brothers round the earth
    Suffer like you a while.

    The God of grace will see you through;
    Someday His face you’ll see.
    You’ll share the glory of His Son
    For all eternity.
    And after you have suffered here,
    God will remove your care.
    He’ll make you strong, steadfast, and firm;
    His be the power fore’er!




    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

    • Praise the Lord!

      Cast your burden on the LORD, and He shall sustain you.
      Psalm 55:22
      Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
      1 Peter 5:7
      He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength.
      Isaiah 40:29
      He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you...”
      2 Corinthians 12:9





      Grace Sufficient for Me

      “My grace is,” not “was,” not “maybe,” but it’s flowing
      Each hour and each moment my need to supply,
      The deeper I dip, still the deeper ’tis growing,
      No drought can diminish or dry;
      My heart from the future no trouble shall borrow;
      Eternal this present provision shall be,
      Assured for today and as sure for tomorrow,
      Such grace is sufficient for me.

      “My grace is sufficient.” Oh, help without measure!
      An ocean of riches no plummet can sound,
      A storehouse unfailing of infinite treasure,
      A gift without limit or bound;
      Exceeding abundant for all His creation,
      Enough for the thorn that is buffeting me,
      The fullness of God for earth’s brief tribulation,
      “My grace is sufficient for thee.”

      “Sufficient for thee,” for my utmost salvation,
      As though ne'er another had owed Him a debt;
      For my special grief and my special temptation,
      My cares and my sins that beset;
      He giveth more grace for my humble endeavor;
      I am praising Him now, I shall praise Him forever;
      His grace is sufficient for me,
      Yes His grace is sufficient for me.




      Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

        Praise the Lord!

        My grace is sufficient for you.
        2 Corinthians 12:9

        He gives more grace.
        James 4:6





        He Giveth More Grace

        He giveth more grace as our burdens grow greater,
        He sendeth more strength as our labors increase;
        To added afflictions He addeth His mercy,
        To multiplied trials He multiplies peace.

        When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
        When our strength has failed ere the day is half done,
        When we reach the end of our hoarded resources
        Our Father’s full giving is only begun.

        Fear not that thy need shall exceed His provision,
        Our God ever yearns His resources to share;
        Lean hard on the arm everlasting, availing;
        The Father both thee and thy load will upbear.

        His love has no limits, His grace has no measure,
        His power no boundary known unto men;
        For out of His infinite riches in Jesus
        He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again.




        Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

        • Praise the Lord!

          Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication,
          with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;
          and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding,
          will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

          Philippians 4:6-7





          Be Not Anxious

          I cannot change the yesterday when I distrusted Thee,
          Though all my fears unfounded proved, and shame me now as then;
          I cannot promise that my faith will last throughout the night,
          Or that, when Thy tomorrow comes, I will not doubt again.

          But grant, O faithful Lord and true, that I may trust Thee now,
          Just now, each moment of each hour of this Thy present day;
          That, looking backward, I may read the record of the past,
          And, forward, see Thy steadfast word light all the future way.

          With Memory to guard the rear and Faith to lead the van,
          And all Thy tested promises like beacon lights to shine,
          How can I dread that demon shape of anxious, faithless fear?
          For he shall lose his power when I fully trust in Thine.

            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!
              Looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ…who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us……Titus 2:13-14




              We Have This Hope

              We have this hope that burns within our hearts,
              Hope in the coming of the Lord.
              We have this faith that Christ alone imparts,
              Faith in the promise of His Word.
              We believe the time is here,
              When the nations far and near
              Shall awake, and shout and sing
              Hallelujah! Christ is King!
              We have this hope that burns within our hearts,
              Hope in the coming of the Lord.

              We are united in Jesus Christ our Lord.
              We are united in His love.
              Love for the waiting people of the world,
              People who need our Savior’s love.
              Soon the heavens will open wide,
              Christ will come to claim His bride,
              All the universe will sing
              Hallelujah! Christ is King!
              We have this hope, this faith, and God’s great love,
              We are united in Christ.

                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!

                • That's My King
                  The Bible says
                  He’s the King of the Jews
                  He’s the King of Israel
                  He’s the King of Righteousness
                  He’s the King of the Ages
                  He’s the King of Heaven
                  He’s the King of Glory
                  He’s the King of Kings
                  and He is the Lord of Lords
                  Now that’s my King!

                  David says
                  The Heavens declare the glory of God
                  And the firmament showeth His handiwork
                  No means of measure can define His limitless love
                  No far seeing telescope can bring into visibility the coastline of His shoreless supply
                  No barriers can hinder Him from pouring out His blessing
                  He’s enduringly strong
                  He’s entirely sincere
                  He’s eternally steadfast
                  He’s immortally graceful
                  He’s imperially powerful
                  He’s impartially merciful
                  That’s my King!

                  He’s God’s Son
                  He’s the sinners’ Saviour
                  He’s the centrepiece of civilisation
                  He stands alone in Himself
                  He’s august
                  He’s unique
                  He’s unparalleled
                  He’s unprecedented
                  He’s supreme
                  He’s pre-eminent
                  He’s the loftiest idea in literature
                  He’s the highest personality in philosophy
                  He’s the supreme problem in higher criticism
                  He’s the fundamental doctrine in true theology
                  He’s the cardinal necessity of spiritual religion
                  That’s my King!

                  He’s the miracle of the age
                  He’s the superlative of everything good that you choose to call Him
                  He’s the only one able to supply all of our needs simultaneously
                  He supplies strength for the weak
                  He’s available for the tempted and the tried
                  He sympathises and He saves
                  He guards and He guides
                  He heals the sick
                  He cleansed the lepers
                  He forgives sinners
                  He discharges debtors
                  He delivers the captives
                  He defends the feeble
                  He blesses the young
                  He serves the unfortunate
                  He regards the aged
                  He rewards the diligent
                  And He beautifies the meek
                  Do you know Him?

                  My King is the key of knowledge
                  He’s the wellspring of wisdom
                  He’s the doorway of deliverance
                  He’s the pathway of peace
                  He’s the roadway of righteousness
                  He’s the highway of holiness
                  He’s the gateway of glory
                  He’s the master of the mighty
                  He’s the captain of the conquerors
                  He’s the head of the heroes
                  He’s the leader of the legislators
                  He’s the overseer of the overcomers
                  He’s the governor of governors
                  He’s the prince of princes
                  He’s the King of Kings
                  And He’s the Lord of Lords
                  That’s my King
                  That’s my King!

                  My King
                  His office is manifold
                  His promise is sure
                  His life is matchless
                  His goodness is limitless
                  His mercy is everlasting
                  His love never changes
                  His word is enough
                  His grace is sufficient
                  His reign is righteous
                  His yoke is easy
                  and His burden is light

                  I wish I could describe Him to you
                  He’s indescribable
                  He’s indescribable
                  He’s incomprehensible
                  He’s invincible
                  He’s irresistible

                  I’m trying to tell you
                  The heaven of heavens cannot contain Him
                  Let alone a man explain Him
                  You can’t get Him out of your mind
                  You can’t get Him off of your hands
                  You can’t outlive Him
                  And you can’t live without Him

                  The Pharisees couldn’t stand Him
                  but they found out they couldn’t stop Him
                  Pilate couldn’t find any fault in Him
                  The witnesses couldn’t get their testimonies to agree
                  And Herod couldn’t kill Him
                  Death couldn’t handle Him
                  And the grave couldn’t hold Him
                  That’s my King!

                  He always has been
                  And He always will be
                  I’m talking about
                  He had no predecessor
                  and He’ll have no successor
                  There was nobody before Him
                  and there’ll be nobody after Him
                  You can’t impeach Him
                  and He’s not going to resign
                  That’s my King!
                  Praise the Lord
                  That’s my King
                  Thine is the Kingdom
                  And the power
                  And the glory
                  The glory is all His
                  Thine is the Kingdom
                  And the power
                  And the glory
                  For ever
                  And ever
                  And ever
                  And when you get through with all of the forevers
                  Then
                  Amen

                    Moreover it is required in stewards that one be found faithful.
                    1 Corinthians 4:2





                    In a Small Place

                    Fret not because thy place is small,
                    Thy service need not be,
                    For thou canst make it all there is
                    Of joy and ministry.

                    The dewdrop, as the boundless sea,
                    In God's great place has part;
                    And this is all He asks of thee;
                    Be faithful where thou art.

                    In thee His mighty hand can show
                    The wonders of His grace,
                    And He can make the humblest room
                    A high and holy place.

                    Thy life can know the blessedness
                    Of resting in His will;
                    His fulness flows unceasingly
                    Thy cup of need to fill.

                    His strength upon they weakness waits,
                    His power for thy task.
                    What more, O child of all His care,
                    Could any great one ask?

                    • Evening Praise the Lord.




                      Praise the Lord!
                      I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.
                      2 Timothy 4:7-8




                      Find Us Faithful

                      We’re pilgrims on the journey of the narrow road,
                      And those who've gone before us line the way,
                      Cheering on the faithful, encouraging the weary,
                      Their lives a stirring testament to God's sustaining grace.

                      Surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses
                      Let us run the race not only for the prize,
                      But as those who've gone before us, let us leave to those behind us,
                      The heritage of faithfulness passed on through godly lives.

                      After all our hopes and dreams have come and gone
                      And our children sift though all we've left behind,
                      May the clues that they discover and the memories they uncover
                      Become the light that leads them to the road we each must find.

                      Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful,
                      May the fire of our devotion light their way,
                      May the footprints that we leave lead them to believe,
                      And the lives we live inspire them to obey
                      Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful.

                      • Praise the Lord!
                        And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2 Corinthians 12:9




                        The Grace of God

                        My
                        “My grace,” ’tis the God of all grace who hath spoken,
                        Whose word in the heavens forever is set;
                        Whose covenant promise hath never been broken;
                        Who never can fail or forget;
                        Who knoweth my needs and who seeth my sorrows,
                        However so many and great they may be;
                        Who heareth my prayers for the days and the morrows;
                        His grace is sufficient for me.

                        Grace
                        “My grace,” all His blessings this work is unfolding,
                        His love and His power in harmony blend;
                        ’Tis grace that hath saved me, and grace that is holding,
                        And grace that will keep to the end;
                        ’Tis grace that hath written redemption's glad story,
                        And grace all the song of the ransomed shall be;
                        ’Tis grace that transforms me from glory to glory;
                        That grace is sufficient for me.

                        Is
                        “My grace is” not “was” and not “will be” ’tis flowing
                        Each hour and each moment my need to supply,
                        The deeper I dip, still the deeper ’tis growing,
                        No drought can diminish or dry;
                        My heart from the future no trouble shall borrow;
                        Eternal this present provision shall be,
                        Assured for today and as sure for tomorrow,
                        Such grace is sufficient for me.

                        Sufficient
                        “My grace is sufficient,” Oh, help without measure!
                        An ocean of riches no plummet can sound,
                        A storehouse unfailing of infinite treasure,
                        A gift without limit or bound;
                        Exceeding abundant for all His creation,
                        Enough for the thorn that is buffeting me,
                        The fullness of God for earth’s brief tribulation -
                        “My grace is sufficient for thee.”

                        For Thee.
                        "Sufficient for thee,” for my utmost salvation,
                        As though ne'er another had owed Him a debt;
                        For my special grief and my special temptation,
                        My cares and my sins that beset;
                        He giveth more grace for my humble endeavour;
                        I am praising Him now, I shall praise Him forever;
                        His grace is sufficient for me.

                          Praise the Lord!
                          I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known. I will make darkness light before them, and crooked places straight. These things I will do for them, and not forsake them. Isaiah 42:16




                          He’s Helping Me Now

                          He’s helping me now this moment,
                          Though I may not see it or hear,
                          Perhaps by a friend far distant,
                          Perhaps by a stranger near,
                          Perhaps by a spoken message
                          Perhaps by the printed word;
                          In ways that I know and know not
                          I have the help of the Lord.

                          He’s keeping me now this moment,
                          However I need it most,
                          Perhaps by a single angel,
                          Perhaps by a mighty host,
                          Perhaps by the chain that frets me,
                          Or the walls that shut me in;
                          In ways that I know or know not
                          He keeps me from harm and sin.

                          He’s guiding me now this moment,
                          In pathways easy or hard,
                          Perhaps by a door wide open,
                          Perhaps by a door fast barred,
                          Perhaps by a joy withholden
                          Perhaps by a gladness given;
                          In ways that I know and know not,
                          He's leading me up to heaven.

                          He’s using me now this moment,
                          And whether I go or stand,
                          Perhaps by a plan accomplished
                          Perhaps when he stays my hand,
                          Perhaps by a word in season
                          Perhaps by a silent prayer;
                          In ways that I know and know not,
                          His labor of love I share.

                            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.

                              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!

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

                              • 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

                                Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward.
                                Hebrews 10:35





                                “I Know”

                                “I Know” against this fortress wall the gates of hell shall not prevail;
                                I know in Whom I have believed and that His word shall never fail;
                                I know that He is strong to keep, and all that I commit to Him
                                Is safe, though I may wake or sleep.

                                “I Know” this Spirit-sword of truth can pierce the cunning foe's device;
                                I know to ransom me from death my Saviour paid the utmost price;
                                I know my sins are all forgiven since on the cross my sin He bore,
                                And if His suffereings I share I'll share His glory evermore.

                                “I Know” against this shield of faith the darts of Hate are powerless;
                                I know not anything that is: not tribulation nor distress,
                                Not all the heights nor all the depths of demon power, strong and great,
                                Not present things, nor things to come, Christ's love from me can separate.

                                “I Know” this one triumphant phrase can silence doubts and banish fears;
                                I know that all thins work for good and I have proved it through the years;
                                I know my Shepherd's guiding hand, His faithfulness, His tender care,
                                That all my need He doth supply and all my burdens He doth bear.

                                “I Know” upon this lighthouse tower the winds and waves shall beat in vain;
                                I know that my Redeemer lives and in His death all Death was slain;
                                I know my life is hid with Him beyond the reach of change or harm,
                                And life and death to me are one within the shelter of His arm.

                                “I Know” my firm foundation this, the Rock amid the shifting sand,
                                I know that Jesus is the Christ, and built there my house shall stand;
                                I know, though all my hand hath wrought by fire and flood be swept away,
                                This cornerstone of faith shall rest unshaken in the last great day.

                                “I Know” this anchor-hope will hold till storms and clouds forever cease;
                                I know that He will come again to bring the Thousand Years of Peace;
                                I know that when He shall appear and earth and time for me are past,
                                When in His likeness I awake I shall be satisfied at last.



                                For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39


                                Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

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