  • Praise the Lord!

    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.






    Now therefore, our God, we thank You and praise Your glorious name.
    1 Chronicles 29:13

    We Thank Thee, Our Father

    For the fruits of the earth, and the sky and the sea,
    For the bountiful harvests so wondrously free,
    For the gold of the autumn, the sear and the brown,
    For the bloom of the flower when winter is flown,
    For the work and the play, for the night and the day,
    We thank Thee, our Father, yea, praise and extol;
    We thank Thee, our Father, Great God of us all.



    Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

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

    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

    • Evening Praise the Lord.




      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.






      God my maker, who gives songs in the night.
      Job 35:10

      Songs in the Night

      When the clouds of affliction have gathered,
      And hidden each star from my sight,
      I know if I turn to my Father,
      Sweetest songs, sweetest songs,
      Sweetest songs He will give in the night,
      Oh, how precious the songs in the night!
      Yes, my heart runneth over,
      For the songs He doth send in the night.



      Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

      • Praise the Lord!
        As He went out of Jericho with His disciples…blind Bartimaeus, sat by the road begging…when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”…So Jesus…commanded him to be called. Then they called the blind man…And throwing aside his garment, he rose and came to Jesus…Jesus said to him, “What do you want Me to do for you?” The blind man said to Him, “Rabboni, that I may receive my sight.”…Then Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your faith has made you well.” And immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus on the road. Mark 10:46-52




        I Asked the Lord

        I asked the Lord to comfort me
        When things weren’t going my way.
        He said to me “I will comfort you
        And lift your cares away.”
        I asked the Lord to walk with me
        When darkness was all that I knew.
        He said to me “Never be afraid,
        For I will see you through.”

        I did not ask for riches.
        He gave me wealth untold;
        The moon, the stars, the sun, the sky,
        And He gave me eyes to behold
        I thank the Lord for everything
        And I count my blessing each day.
        He came to me when I need Him,
        I only had to pray.

        He’ll come to you if you’ll ask Him to.
        He's only a prayer away.






        He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”
        2 Corinthians 12:9

        He Giveth More Grace

        He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater,
        He sendeth more strength when the labors increase;
        To added affliction He addeth His mercy;
        To multiplied trials, His multiplied peace.
        His love has no limit; His grace has no measure.
        His pow’r has no boundary known unto men;
        For out of His infinite riches in Jesus,
        He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again!

          Praise the Lord!

          I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?”
          Then said I, “Here am I; send me.”

          Isaiah 6:8





          Speak, My Lord

          Hear the Lord of harvest sweetly calling,
          “Who will go and work for Me today?
          Who will bring to Me the lost and dying?
          Who will point them to the narrow way?”

          When the coal of fire touched the prophet,
          Making him as pure, as pure can be,
          When the voice of God said, “Who’ll go for us?”
          Then he answered, “Here I am, send me.”

          Millions now in sin and shame are dying,
          Listen to their sad and bitter cry;
          Hasten, brother, hasten to the rescue;
          Quickly answer, “Master, here am I.”

          Soon the time for reaping will be over;
          Soon we’ll gather for the harvest home;
          May the Lord of harvest smile upon us,
          May we hear His blessed, “Child, well done.”

          Speak, my Lord, speak, my Lord,
          Speak, and I’ll be quick to answer Thee;
          Speak, my Lord, speak, my Lord,
          Speak, and I will answer, “Lord, send me.”






          You shall be witnesses unto Me.
          Acts 1:8

          I’ll Be a Voice

          I’ll be a voice for the Master, speaking for Jesus today;
          A voice to the wand’rer, though far away he may roam;
          A voice for the Master, unto the sad and oppressed;
          A voice! I’ll be a voice! Teaching the truth and the way;
          A voice! I’ll be a voice! Speaking for Jesus today.



          Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

          • Praise the Lord!

            Now the LORD came and stood and called as at other times, “Samuel! Samuel!”
            And Samuel answered, “Speak, for Your servant hears.”

            1 Samuel 3:10





            Master, Speak! Thy Servant Heareth

            Master, speak! Thy servant heareth,
            Waiting for Thy gracious word,
            Longing for Thy voice that cheereth;
            Master! let it now be heard.
            I am listening, Lord, for Thee:
            What hast Thou to say to me?

            Speak to me by name, O Master,
            Let me know it is to me;
            Speak, that I may follow faster,
            With a step more firm and free,
            Where the Shepherd leads the flock,
            In the shadow of the rock.

            Master, speak! Though least and lowest,
            Let me not unheard depart;
            Master, speak! For O, Thou knowest
            All the yearning of my heart,
            Knowest all its truest need:
            Speak! and make me blest indeed.

            Master, speak! and make me ready,
            When Thy voice is truly heard,
            With obedience glad and steady
            Still to follow every word.
            I am listening, Lord, for Thee:
            Master, speak! O, speak to me!






            Here am I! Send me.
            Isaiah 6:8

            Here am I, Send Me!

            Hast Thou, O Lord, a work to do?
            The field is white, the lab’rers few,
            Over mountain, plain or sea,
            I’ll go to the ends of the earth for Thee,
            Here am I, send me!

              Praise the Lord!

              Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations.

              Matthew 28:19





              Let Us Send The Gospel Message

              Let us send the Gospel message
              Far across the ocean wave,
              To the millions who have never
              Heard of Jesus’ power to save;
              To the people who are living
              In a land of darkest gloom
              Where they have no thought of Heaven,
              And no hope beyond the tomb.

              In our minds now, let us picture
              Such a people, such a land,
              And ourselves among the number,
              With no sign of helping hand.
              O the pain, the bitter sorrow
              Of a life in such a place,
              Ne’er to feel the peace and comfort
              Of the Savior’s pardoning grace!

              Brethren, sisters, ’tis our duty,
              And our privilege as well,
              To this lost and dying people
              Of a Savior’s love to tell.
              Jesus said, “Go teach all nations”;
              Dare we slight His last command?
              No, we’ll send the Gospel message
              Into every heathen land.

              Let us send the message, blessed Gospel message,
              That the nations may all hear of Jesus’ name;
              Let us send the message, blessed Gospel message,
              That the heathen may be saved from sin and shame.






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

              Constantly Abiding

              There’s a peace in my heart that the world never gave,
              A peace it cannot take away;
              Though the trials of life may surround like a cloud,
              I’ve a peace that has come here to stay!
              Constantly abiding, Jesus is mine;
              Constantly abiding, rapture divine;
              He never leaves me lonely, whispers, O so kind:
              “I will never leave thee,” Jesus is mine.

                  2 Corinthians 1:3





                  Sunday Morning Praise

                  Father of Mercies

                  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 the Savior there.






                  I will ask the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter.
                  John 14:16

                  The Comforter Has Come

                  O spread the tidings ’round, wherever man is found,
                  Wherever human hearts and human woes abound;
                  Let ev’ry Christian tongue proclaim the joyful sound.
                  The Holy Ghost from Heav’n, the Father’s promise giv’n;
                  O spread the tidings ’round, wherever man is found —
                  The Comforter has come!

                    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.






                    This is what He has promised us…eternal life.
                    1 John 2:25

                    What Hath God Promised

                    God hath not promised skies always blue,
                    Flower strewn pathways all our lives through;
                    God hath not promised sun without rain,
                    Joy without sorrow, peace without pain.
                    But God hath promised strength for the day,
                    Rest for the labor, light for the way,
                    Grace for the trials, help from above,
                    Unfailing sympathy, undying love.



                    Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

                    • Thank to Jesus I am still splitting the sky.
                      This verse sums it up very nicely.

                      Isaiah 40: 30-31
                      Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
                      But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

                      • Praise the Lord!

                        Go work today in My vineyard.
                        Matthew 21:28





                        Work For Us All

                        Out where the reapers are toiling
                        Out where they earnestly call,
                        Let us away in the morning,
                        There is a work for us all;
                        Lifting the vines that are drooping,
                        Trying their bloom to renew,
                        Bathing their leaves in a fountain
                        Purer and sweeter than dew.

                        Out where the gleaners are toiling,
                        Patiently, cheerfully still,
                        If we are willing to labor,
                        Here is a place we can fill;
                        Speaking a word to the weary,
                        Helping the weak ones along,
                        Shedding bright sunshine around them,
                        Cheering their hearts with a song.

                        Out where the sheaves they are binding,
                        Sheaves for the garner above,
                        Go in the name of the Master,
                        Go in the spirit of love;
                        Hark! He is tenderly saying,
                        Work in My vineyard today;
                        Haste, for the summer is waning,
                        Harvest is passing away.

                        Out where the reapers are toiling,
                        Out where they earnestly call,
                        Let us away, away in the morning,
                        There is a work for us all.






                        As long as it is day, I must do the work of Him who sent Me.
                        Night is coming, when no one can work.

                        John 9:4

                        Work, For The Night Is Coming

                        Work, for the night is coming,
                        Under the sunset skies;
                        While their bright tints are glowing,
                        Work, for daylight flies.
                        Work till the last beam fadeth,
                        Fadeth to shine no more;
                        Work, while the night is darkening,
                        When man’s work is o’er.



                        Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

                          • Evening Praise the Lord.




                            Praise the Lord!

                            Go work...in My vineyard.
                            Matthew 21:28





                            One Lost Sheep

                            Safe were the ninety and nine in the fold.
                            Safe though the night was stormy and cold;
                            But said the Shepherd when counting them o’er,
                            "One sheep is missing, there should be one more."

                            Although His feet were weary and worn,
                            And though His hands were rent and torn,
                            Although the road was rocky and steep,
                            Still the Good Shepherd searched long for his sheep.

                            There in the night He heard a faint cry
                            From the lost sheep just ready to die.
                            Then in His arms to shield from the cold
                            He brought the lost sheep back safe to the fold.

                            The Shepherd went out to search for His sheep,
                            And all through the night on the cold, rocky steep
                            He searched till He found him,
                            With love bands He bound him,
                            And I was that one lost sheep.






                            The sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.
                            John 10:3


                            “Follow Me!” A Call so Tender
                            The Shepherd’s Call


                            “Follow Me!” A call so tender
                            Falls upon my list’ning ear;
                            ’Tis the voice of Christ, my Savior,
                            ’Tis the Shepherd’s call I hear.
                            O that call! Loving call!
                            ’Tis the sweetest voice of all.
                            How it draws me nearer to Him
                            When I hear my Shepherd’s call!


                            Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!
