    • 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.




      Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

        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! Amen! and Amen!

          “Son of David, have mercy on me!”
          Mark 10:48





          Blind Bartimeus

          Son of David! hear my cry;
          Savior, do not pass me by;
          Touch these eyelids veiled in night,
          Turn their darkness into light.
          Son of David, hear my cry!
          Savior, do not pass me by.

          Though the proud my voice would still,
          They may chide me if they will,
          Yet the more I’ll pray for grace,
          Only here shall be my place.
          Son of David, hear my cry!
          Savior, do not pass me by.

          Though despised by all but Thee,
          Thou a blessing hast for me;
          Faith and prayer can never fail,
          Lord, with Thee I must prevail,
          Son of David, hear my cry!
          Savior, do not pass me by.

          Glorious vision! heav’nly ray!
          All my gloom has passed away;
          Now my joyful eye doth see,
          And my soul still clings to Thee,
          Thine the glory evermore,
          Mine to worship and adore.

            Praise the Lord!

            Is there no balm in Gilead, is there no physician there?
            Jeremiah 8:22

            Go up to Gilead and take balm.
            Jeremiah 46:11





            There Is A Balm In Gilead

            There is a balm in Gilead
            To make the wounded whole;
            There is a balm in Gilead
            To heal the sin sick soul.


            Some times I feel discouraged,
            And think my work’s in vain,
            But then the Holy Spirit
            Revives my soul again.

            There is a balm in Gilead
            To make the wounded whole;
            There is a balm in Gilead
            To heal the sin sick soul.


            If you can’t preach like Peter,
            If you can’t pray like Paul,
            Just tell the love of Jesus,
            And say He died for all.

            There is a balm in Gilead
            To make the wounded whole;
            There is a balm in Gilead
            To heal the sin sick soul.

            • Praise the Lord!

              We are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
              Romans 8:37

              Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
              1 Corinthians 15:57





              More Than Conquerors

              Through the cleansing blood of the dying Lamb,
              Through the power of grace and the precious name,
              Through the light that beams from the Morning Star,
              More than conquerors, conquerors we are.

              Who shall sever us from the Savior’s love,
              Or shall blot our names from Life’s book above?
              Neither present things, nor the things to come,
              Shall defeat our souls of the heav’nly home.

              More than conquerors! There our captain stands,
              While our names are graven upon His hands;
              Though the powers of darkness against us frown,
              We shall win the fight, and shall wear the crown.

              More than conquerors, more than conquerors,
              Through the cleansing blood of the dying Lamb,
              More than conquerors! more than conquerors,
              Through the pow’r of grace and the precious name.

              • Evening Praise the Lord




                Praise the Lord!
                For I am persuaded that (NOTHING) 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




                Neither Height, Nor Depth, Nor Breadth

                The chords of love bind me above
                To One who never changes;
                Nor time, nor space can e’er efface,
                His boundless love for me.

                The price He gave, my soul to save,
                Upon the cross of anguish;
                The shame and woe, O who can know,
                How much He cared for me.

                His love complete, with joys replete,
                Supplies my every longing;
                It brings no pain, no loss, but gain,
                The love He gives to me.

                Neither height, nor depth, nor breadth, shall separate me
                From the love of Him who shed His precious blood;
                Neither height, nor depth, nor breadth, shall separate me
                From the love of God.



                Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

                  I Will Ever Sing Thy Praises

                  I will ever sing Thy praises, mighty God and gracious King;
                  Loud my heart its tribute raises, and to Thee my psalms I sing;

                  “Thousand, thousand thanks to Thee, mighty God,” my song shall be!

                  All the people shall proclaim Thee, sing Thy praise from shore to shore;
                  Every human heart shall name Thee, God and King forevermore;
                  On Thy throne in heaven vaulted, in Thy majesty exalted,
                  “Thousand, thousand thanks to Thee, mighty God,” my song shall be!

                  When at last my feet have found Thee, when at last I am Thy own;
                  When the ransomed hosts surround Thee, on Thy great eternal throne;
                  When in yonder land of glory angels tell redemption’s story,
                  “Thousand, thousand thanks to Thee, mighty God,” my song shall be!

                    Praise the Lord!

                    I am with you always, even to the end of the age.
                    Matthew 28:20

                    Remember...

                    He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
                    Hebrews 13:5





                    His Promise to Me

                    Darkness may o’ertake me and my song forsake me,
                    But alone I never shall be;
                    For the Friend beside me promised He would guide me,
                    And will keep His promise to me.

                    Should misfortune meet me, friends may fail to greet me,
                    But if true to Jesus I stay
                    He will still uphold me, let His love enfold me
                    Every dreary mile of the way.

                    How the thought enthralls me, that whate’er befalls me
                    One will always love me the same;
                    Not a trial ever causes Him to sever
                    From the ones who honor His name.

                    He will keep his promise to me,
                    All the way with me He will go;
                    He has never broken any promise spoken;
                    He will keep His promise, I know.

                      John 16:12





                      Dark Threads The Weaver Needs

                      My Life is but a weaving
                      between my Lord and me;
                      I cannot choose the colors
                      He worketh steadily.

                      Oft times He weaveth sorrow
                      And I, in foolish pride,
                      Forget He sees the upper,
                      And I the under side.

                      Not til the loom is silent
                      And the shuttles cease to fly,
                      Shall God unroll the canvas
                      And explain the reason why.

                      The dark threads are as needful
                      In the Weaver's skillful hand,
                      As the threads of gold and silver
                      In the pattern He has planned.

                      He knows, He loves, He cares,
                      Nothing this truth can dim.
                      He gives His very best to those
                      Who leave the choice with Him.

                        Praise the Lord!

                        Later you will understand.
                        John 13:7





                        We Will Understand it Better By and By

                        We are tossed and driv’n on the restless sea of time;
                        Somber skies and howling tempests oft succeed a bright sunshine;
                        In that land of perfect day, when the mists have rolled away,
                        We will understand it better by and by.

                        We are often destitute of the things that life demands,
                        Want of food and want of shelter, thirsty hills and barren lands;
                        We are trusting in the Lord, and according to God’s Word,
                        We will understand it better by and by.

                        Trials dark on every hand, and we cannot understand
                        All the ways that God could lead us to that blessed promised land;
                        But He guides us with His eye, and we’ll follow till we die,
                        For we’ll understand it better by and by.

                        Temptations, hidden snares often take us unawares,
                        And our hearts are made to bleed for a thoughtless word or deed;
                        And we wonder why the test when we try to do our best,
                        But we’ll understand it better by and by.

                        By and by, when the morning comes,
                        When the saints of God are gathered home,
                        We’ll tell the story how we’ve overcome,
                        For we’ll understand it better by and by.




                        Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

                          And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.
                          Matthew 23:12





                          The Willow and the Oak

                          I saw, when the wind swept over the mead,
                          The willow that stands by the brook;
                          Bending low, as, with pitiless force, the storm
                          Threw down the unbending oak.

                          The storm had passed by, the willow uprose,
                          Her branches in beauty outspread;
                          But the monarch of trees, in his pride cast down,
                          Lay prone on the earth and dead.

                          O Christians, look up! life’s storms will soon pass;
                          Rejoice ye with sorrow low bowed;
                          Our Lord in His hand holds the lightning’s shaft,
                          His smile is behind the cloud.

                          And thou, who art proud, O turn ye in time,
                          Nor fall as the desolate tree!
                          God’s mercy, His infinite love are thine,
                          Awaiting, inviting thee.

                          Bend low till the storm passeth over,
                          The sun will shine out by and by;
                          Bend low till the storm passeth over,
                          And the stars twinkle out in the sky.

                            Praise the Lord!
                            Along the bank of the river, on this side and that, will grow all kinds of trees used for food; their leaves will not wither, and their fruit will not fail. They will bear fruit every month, because their water flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for medicine. Ezekiel 47:12

                            In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. Revelation 22:2




                            The Tree of Life

                            Our Father has planted a beautiful tree,
                            Whose evergreen branches His children behold;
                            They walk ’neath its shade in the city above,
                            Whose gates are of pearl and whose streets are of gold.

                            Beside the pure river of crystal it grows,
                            And yieldeth its fruit every month, we are told;
                            Its leaves for the healing of nations designed,
                            The nations who dwell in that city of gold.

                            The hand of the Savior will wipe every tear,
                            And banish forever the darkness of night;
                            Sweet anthems eternal that region shall fill,
                            The Lord is its glory, the Lord is its light.

                            We may eat of the beautiful tree of life,
                            That stands in the midst of the city so fair;
                            We may eat of its fruit and be healed with its leaves;
                            No hunger, no sickness, no sorrow is there.




                            Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

                            • Praise the Lord!
                              When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you. For I am the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. Isaiah 43:2-3




                              Not Down, But Through

                              “When Thou passest through the waters,”
                              Deep the waves may be and cold,
                              But Jehovah is our refuge,
                              And his promise is our hold;
                              For the Lord himself has said it,
                              He, the faithful God and true;
                              “When you come to the waters
                              You will not go down, but through.”

                              Seas of sorrow, Seas of trial,
                              Bitter anguish, fiercest pain,
                              Rolling surges of temptation
                              Sweeping over heart and soul...
                              They will never overflow us
                              For we know His work is true;
                              All His waves and all His billows
                              He will lead us safely through.

                              Threatening breakers of destruction,
                              Doubt’s insidious undertow,
                              Will not sink us, will not drag us
                              Out to ocean depths of woe;
                              For His promise will sustain us,
                              Praise the Lord, whose word is true!
                              We will not go down, or under,
                              For He says, “You will pass through.”




                              Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

                                Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more, so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 5:20-21




                                Show Us Thy Grace

                                Show us our need, O Lord; how lost, how hopeless,
                                How poor, how sunk in sin our carnal hearts;
                                Show us how vain to change our sad condition,
                                Our best endeavor and our utmost arts;
                                Show us how weak we are, and how dependent,
                                How multiplied defeats our pride abase;
                                And then — O Lord, lest we despair too wholly —
                                Show us Thy grace!

                                Show us Thy grace, the great, the all-sufficient,
                                Infinite riches for our poverty,
                                Mercy of God for uttermost salvation,
                                Weapon that turns defeat to victory;
                                Gladness unspeakable and full of glory,
                                Beyond our needs, a vast unmeasured space.
                                Lord, as we never yet have seen or known it,
                                Show us Thy grace!
