    But God, who is rich in mercy.
    Ephesians 2:4

    Rich in Mercy

    “Rich in mercy,” hear the message full of blessings from above;
    God is calling to the wayward in the sweetest tones of love:
    “Rich in mercy,” gracious accents, falling like a breath from Heav’n;
    Souls are purchased with a ransom, and the contrite are forgiv’n.

    “Rich in mercy,” loud proclaim it! May the heralds never cease
    ’Til every soul led captive finds in Christ a sweet release;
    Come, then, howe’er needy, all thy needs to Jesus bring;
    There are riches, and there’s mercy, in the presence of the King.

    I am happy in the presence of the King.
    I am happy, O so happy!
    I have peace and joy that nothing else can bring,
    In the presence of the King.

    “Rich in mercy,” wondrous story, let us sing it once again;
    Sweeter music to the weary, than the angels’ glad refrain.






    Go your way…for the joy of the LORD is your strength.
    Nehemiah 8:10
    I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD.
    Psalm 71:16

    In The Strength of The Lord

    I will go in the strength of the Lord,
    In the path He hath marked for my feet:
    I will follow the light of His Word,
    Nor shrink from the dangers I meet.
    His presence my steps shall attend:
    His fullness my wants shall supply;
    On Him, till my journey shall end,
    My hope shall securely rely.



    Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

    Blessings, peace, grace and to all here at TOL!
    Thanks Psalmist.
    Amen and Amen!

      Praise the Lord!

      The mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
      Jude 21





      Mercy is Boundless and Free

      Thanks be to Jesus, His mercy is free, mercy is free, mercy is free;
      Sinner, that mercy is flowing for thee, mercy is boundless and free.
      If thou art willing on Him to believe, mercy is free, mercy is free;
      Life everlasting thy soul may receive, mercy is boundless and free.

      Why on the mountain of sin wilt thou roam, mercy is free, mercy is free;
      Gently the Spirit is calling, “Come home,” mercy is boundless and free.
      Thou art in darkness, O come to the light, mercy is free, mercy is free;
      Jesus is waiting, He’ll save you tonight, mercy is boundless and free.

      Think of His goodness, His patience, and love, mercy is free, mercy is free;
      Pleading thy cause with His Father above, mercy is boundless and free.
      Come and repenting, O give Him your heart, mercy is free, mercy is free;
      Grieve Him no longer, but come as thou art, mercy is boundless and free.

      Yes, there is pardon for all who believe, mercy is free, mercy is free;
      Come and this moment a blessing receive, mercy is boundless and free.
      Jesus is waiting, O hear Him proclaim, mercy is free, mercy is free;
      Cling to His mercy, believe on His name, mercy is boundless and free.

      Jesus the Savior is looking for thee Mercy is boundless and free.
      Looking for thee, looking for thee Mercy is boundless and free.
      Lovingly, tenderly calling for thee Mercy is boundless and free.
      Calling and looking for thee Mercy is boundless and free.






      In every thing give thanks.
      1 Thessalonians 5:18

      Thankfulness

      E’er the day is over we our thanks would say,
      For the many pleasures we have had today,
      Parents, friends and teachers made us happy, quite —
      So a hearty, Thank you! tells of our delight.
      E’er the day is over, let us now recall
      How our heav’nly Father plans our pleasures all,
      Planting seeds of kindness in each heart;
      Dear Lord, we thank Thee from a thankful heart.



      Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

        The same came therefore to Philip…saying, Sir, we would see Jesus.
        John 12:21





        We Would See Jesus

        We would see Jesus; for the shadows lengthen
        Across this little landscape of our life;
        We would see Jesus, our weak faith to strengthen
        For the last weariness, the final strife.
        We would see Jesus, the great rock Foundation
        Whereon our feet were set with sovereign grace;
        Nor life nor death, with all their agitation,
        Can thence remove us, if we see His face.

        We would see Jesus; other lights are paling,
        Which for long years we have rejoiced to see;
        The blessings of our pilgrimage are failing;
        We would not mourn them, for we go to Thee.
        We would see Jesus; yet the spirit lingers
        Round the dear objects it has loved so long,
        And earth from earth can scarce unclasp its fingers;
        Our love to Thee makes not this love less strong.

        We would see Jesus: sense is all too binding,
        And heaven appears too dim, too far away;
        We would see Thee, Thyself our hearts reminding
        What Thou hast suffered, our great debt to pay.
        We would see Jesus: this is all we’re needing;
        Strength, joy, and willingness come with the sight;
        We would see Jesus, dying, risen, pleading;
        Then welcome day, and farewell mortal night.






        Who is this King of glory?
        The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory.

        Psalm 24:10

        The King of Glory Standeth

        The King of Glory standeth beside the heart of sin;
        His mighty voice commandeth the raging waves within;
        The floods of deepest anguish roll backward at His will,
        As o’er the storm ariseth His mandate, “Peace, be still.”
        O Christ, Thy love is mighty; long suffering is Thy grace;
        And glorious is the splendor that doth beam from Thy face.
        Our hearts doth leap in gladness when we behold that love,
        As we go singing onward, to dwell with Thee above.

          Praise the Lord!

          We have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.
          1 John 2:1





          When We See Christ

          Oft times the day seems long, our trials hard to bear,
          We're tempted to complain, to murmur and despair;
          But Christ will soon appear to catch His Bride away,
          All tears forever over in God's eternal day.

          Sometimes the sky looks dark with not a ray of light,
          We're tossed and driven on, no human help in sight;
          But there is one in heav'n who knows our deepest care,
          Let Jesus solve your problem — just go to Him in pray'r.

          Life’s day will soon be o’er, all storms forever past,
          We'll cross the great divide, to glory, safe at last;
          We'll share the joys of heav’n — a harp, a home, a crown,
          The tempter will be banished, we'll lay our burden down.

          It will be worth it all when we see Jesus,
          Life’s trials will seem so small when we see Christ;
          One glimpse of His dear face all sorrow will erase,
          So bravely run the race till we see Christ.






          Now we see but a poor reflection…then we shall see face to face.
          1 Corinthians 13:12

          Face to face With Christ, My Savior

          What rejoicing in His presence,
          When are banished grief and pain;
          When the crooked ways are straightened,
          And the dark things shall be plain.
          Face to face I shall behold Him,
          Far beyond the starry sky;
          Face to face in all His glory,
          I shall see Him by and by!



          Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

            Go work today in my vineyard.
            Matthew 21:28





            He Set the Task For Me

            Though the work of life be lowly,
            Let me true and faithful be;
            This the thought that makes it holy
            Christ has set the task for me.

            Hush, O heart, thy wild ambition!
            Toil, O hands, in service free!
            Blest indeed is my condition
            Christ has set the task for me.

            Christ, I know, will not forget me
            When at length the evening falls;
            From the place where He has set me
            I will answer when He calls.

            He has set the task for me!
            He has set the task for me!
            This the thought that makes it holy
            Christ has set the task for me!






            And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men.
            Colossians 3:23

            My Task

            To love someone more dearly ev'ry day,
            To help a wand'ring child to find his way,
            To ponder o'er a noble tho't and pray;
            To follow truth as blind me long for light,
            To do my best from dawn of day till night,
            To keep my heart fit for His holy sight;
            And then my Savior by and by to meet,
            When faith hath made her task on earth complete,
            And lay my homage at the Master's feet,
            Within the jasper walls This crowns my task.

              Praise the Lord!

              Peace to you!
              As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.

              John 20:21





              So Send I You

              So send I you to labor unrewarded,
              To serve unpaid, unloved, unsought, unknown,
              To bear rebuke, to suffer scorn and scoffing,
              So send I you to toil for Me alone.
              As the Father hath sent Me, So send I you.

              So send I you to bind the bruised and broken,
              O'er wand'ring souls to work, to weep, to wake,
              To bear the burdens of a world aweary-
              So send I you to suffer for My sake.
              As the Father hath sent Me, So send I you.

              So send I you to hearts made hard by hatred,
              To eyes made blind because they will not see,
              To spend, tho' it be blood, to spend and spare not-
              So send I you to taste of Calvary.
              As the Father hath sent Me, So send I you.





              Praise the Lord!

              Whoever desires to come after Me,
              let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.

              Mark 8:34

              Take Up Thy Cross

              I walked one day along a country road,
              And there a cross appeared,
              It was a cross, a cross I knew.
              The one forgotten I had cast aside,
              The one, so long, that I had feared.
              “I'll Take up my cross and follow You.”
              In answer to the blessed Savior's call;
              How can I make a lesser sacrifice,
              When Jesus gave His all?

              • Praise the Lord!

                There remains therefore a rest for the people of God.
                Hebrews 4:9





                Lord, I Believe a Rest Remains

                Lord, I believe a rest remains to all thy people known;
                A rest where pure enjoyment reigns, and thou art loved alone.
                A rest where all our soul’s desire is fixed on things above;
                Where doubt, and pain, and fear expire, cast out by perfect love.
                From every evil motion freed, the Son hath made us free,
                On all the powers of hell we tread, in glorious liberty.

                Safe in the way of life, above death, earth, and dread we rise;
                We find, when perfect in love, our long-sought paradise.
                O that I now the rest might know, believe, and enter in!
                Now, Savior, now the power bestow, and let me cease from sin!
                Remove this hardness from my heart, this unbelief remove;
                To me the rest of faith impart, the Sabbath of thy love.

                Come, O Savior, come away, upon my soul descend
                No longer from thy creature stay, my Author and my End.
                The bliss thou hast for me prepared no longer be delay’d;
                Come, my exceeding great reward, for whom I first was made.
                Come, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, and seal me thine abode!
                Let all I am in thee be lost, let all be lost in God.






                “Come to Me...I will give you rest.”
                Matthew 11:28
                He said to them, “Come aside...to a deserted place and rest a while.”
                Mark 6:31-32

                There is a Rest for You

                When the cares of earth are pressing,
                Not a star of hope in view,
                There are healing streams refreshing,
                In a Savior’s love for you.
                There’s a home and rest forever,
                When the cares of earth are done.
                Where the heart is weary never,
                There is rest for everyone.
                There is rest, sweet rest for you.

                  Praise the Lord!

                  The LORD is your keeper; the LORD is your shade at your right hand.
                  Psalm 121:5
                  You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.
                  Isaiah 26:3





                  In His Keeping

                  When the early morning breaking, slumber from my eyelids shaking,
                  Comes the blessed tho’t with waking, I am in His keeping.
                  Day advances, labor bringing, care, her mantle ’round me flinging,
                  Yet midst all my soul keeps singing, I am in His care.

                  Sometimes dark clouds hang o’er me, not one step I see before me,
                  Still, my Savior, I adore Thee, I am in His keeping.
                  I can trust His hand to guide me, ’neath His wings He’ll safely hide me,
                  And no harm can e’er betide me, I am in His care.

                  When gentle eventide is nearing, light from heaven disappearing,
                  Still the blessed tho’t so cheering, I am in His keeping.
                  Now night’s curtains gather ’round me, yet its dangers have not found me,
                  For His angel guards surround me, I am in His care.

                  I am in my Father’s keeping,
                  I am in His tender care;
                  Whether waking, whether sleeping,
                  I am in His care.






                  When the day began to wear away...
                  they constrained Him, saying, “Abide with us, for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent.”
                  And He went in to stay with them.

                  Luke 9:12, 24:29

                  Abide With Me, ’Tis Eventide!

                  Abide with me, ’tis eventide!
                  The day is past and gone;
                  The shadows of the evening fall;
                  The night is coming on!
                  Within my heart a welcome guest,
                  Within my home abide.
                  O Savior, stay this night with me;
                  Behold, ’tis eventide!

                    You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in You.
                    Isaiah 26:3





                    Peace, Troubled Soul

                    Peace, troubled soul, thou need’st not fear;
                    Thy great provider still is near;
                    Who fed thee last, will feed thee still:
                    Be calm, and sink into His will.
                    The Lord, who built the earth and sky,
                    In mercy stoops to hear thy cry;
                    His promise all may freely claim;
                    Ask and receive in Jesus’ name.

                    Without reserve give Christ your heart,
                    Let Him His righteousness impart;
                    Then all things else He’ll freely give;
                    With Him you all things shall receive.
                    Thus shall the soul be truly blest,
                    That seeks in God His only rest;
                    May I that happy person be,
                    In time and in eternity.






                    Perfect Peace
                    Isaiah 26:3

                    Peace, Perfect Peace

                    Peace, perfect peace, in this dark world of sin?
                    The blood of Jesus whispers peace within.
                    Peace, perfect peace, with loved ones far away?
                    In Jesus’ keeping we are safe, and they.
                    Peace, perfect peace, our future all unknown?
                    Jesus we know, and He is on the throne.
                    It is enough: earth’s struggles soon shall cease,
                    And Jesus call us to Heaven’s perfect peace.

                    • Evening Praise the Lord




                      Praise the Lord!

                      He departed from there…to a deserted place.
                      Matthew 14:13

                      ..........
                      There is no music in a rest, but there is the making of music in it.
                      ..........






                      Music and Rest

                      Called aside – From the glad working of thy busy life,
                      From the world’s ceaseless stir of care and strife,
                      Into the shade and stillness by thy Heavenly Guide
                      For a brief space thou hast been called aside.
                      Called aside – Perhaps into a desert garden dim;
                      And yet not alone, when thou hast been with Him,
                      And heard His voice in sweetest accents say:
                      ’Child, wilt thou not with Me this still hour stay?

                      Called aside – In hidden paths with Christ thy Lord to tread,
                      Deeper to drink at the sweet Fountainhead,
                      Closer in fellowship with Him to roam,
                      Nearer, perchance, to feel thy Heavenly Home.
                      Called aside – Oh, knowledge deeper grows with Him alone;
                      In secret of His deeper love is shown,
                      And learnt in many an hour of dark distress
                      Some rare, sweet lesson of His tenderness.

                      Called aside – We thank thee for the stillness and the shade;
                      We thank Thee for the hidden paths Thy love hath made,
                      And, so that we have wept and watched with Thee,
                      We thank Thee for our dark Gethsemane.
                      Called aside – Oh, restful thought–He doeth all things well;
                      Oh, blessed sense, with Christ alone to dwell;
                      So in the shadow of Thy cross to hide,
                      We thank Thee, Lord, to have been called aside.






                      God my Maker...Who gives songs in the night.
                      Job 35:10

                      You (LORD) are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble;
                      You shall surround me with songs of deliverance.

                      Psalm 32:7





                      Songs in the Night

                      We make our songs in the day of our gladness,
                      When life is all laughter and joy and delight,
                      When never a shadow has clouded our sunshine;
                      But God giveth songs in the night!
                      Give us Thy songs, O Thou Maker of music!
                      Teach us to sing, O Thou Bringer of joy!
                      Till nothing can silence the notes of our triumph
                      And naught our rejoicing destroy!



                      Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

                      • Praise the Lord!

                        Waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
                        1 Corinthians 1:7





                        Sunday Morning Praise

                        Waiting

                        Only waiting till the shadows are a little longer grown;
                        Only waiting till the glimmer of the day’s last beam is flown;
                        Till the night of death is faded from the heart once full of day;
                        Till the stars of heav’n are breaking thro’ the twilight soft and gray.

                        Only waiting till the reapers have the last sheaf gathered home;
                        For the summertime has faded and the autumn winds have come.
                        Quickly, reapers! gather quickly, all the ripe hours of my heart;
                        For the bloom of life has withered, and I hasten to depart.

                        Only waiting till the angels open wide the pearly gate,
                        At whose portals long I’ve lingered weary, poor and desolate:
                        Even now I hear their footsteps, and their voices far away;
                        If they call me, I am waiting, only waiting to obey.

                        Waiting for a brighter dwelling than I ever yet have seen,
                        Where the tree of life is blooming, and the fields are ever green:
                        Waiting for my full redemption, when my Savior shall restore,
                        All that sin has caused to wither; age and sorrow come no more.






                        Whom have I in Heaven but You?
                        Psalm 73:25

                        Wait on the Lord

                        Wait on the Lord, wait patiently,
                        And thou shalt in Him be blest;
                        After the storm, a holy calm,
                        And after thy labor rest.
                        Wait on the Lord, for whom hast thou
                        On earth or in Heaven but He?
                        Over thy soul a watch He keeps,
                        Wherever thy path may be.



                        Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

                          Praise the Lord!

                          Eagerly waiting for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ.
                          1 Corinthians 1:7





                          I’m Waiting For Thee, Lord

                          I’m waiting for Thee, Lord, Thy beauty to see, Lord;
                          I’m waiting for Thee For Thy coming again.
                          Thou art gone over there, Lord, a place to prepare, Lord,
                          Thy home I shall share at Thy coming again.

                          ’Mid danger and fear, Lord, I’m oft weary here, Lord,
                          The day must be near of Thy coming again.
                          ’Tis all sunshine there, Lord, no sighing nor care, Lord,
                          But glory so fair at Thy coming again.

                          Whilst Thou art away, Lord, I stumble and stray, Lord;
                          Oh! hasten the day of Thy coming again.
                          This is not my rest, Lord, a pilgrim confessed, Lord,
                          I wait to be blest, at Thy coming again.

                          E’en now let my ways, Lord, be bright with Thy praise, Lord;
                          For brief are the days ere Thy coming again.
                          I’m waiting for Thee, Lord, Thy beauty to see, Lord,
                          No triumph for me like Thy coming again.






                          When He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is.
                          1 John 3:2
                          O I Want to See Him

                          As I journey thro’ the land, singing as I go,
                          Pointing souls to Calvary to the crimson flow,
                          Many arrows pierce my soul from without, within;
                          But my Lord leads me on, thro’ Him I will win.
                          O I want to see Him, look upon His face,
                          There to sing forever of His saving grace;
                          On the streets of glory let me lift my voice,
                          Cares all past, home at last, ever to rejoice.

                          • Praise the Lord!

                            My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials,
                            knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.

                            James 1:2-3





                            Never Give Up

                            Never be sad or desponding,
                            If thou hast faith to believe.
                            Grace, for the duties before thee,
                            Ask of thy God and receive.

                            What if thy burdens oppress thee;
                            What though thy life may be drear;
                            Look on the side that is brightest,
                            Pray, and thy path will be clear.

                            Never be sad or desponding,
                            There is a morrow for thee;
                            Soon thou shalt dwell in its brightness,
                            There with the Lord thou shalt be.

                            Never be sad or desponding,
                            Lean on the arm of thy Lord;
                            Dwell in the depths of His mercy,
                            Thou shalt receive thy reward.

                            Never give up, never give up,
                            Never give up to thy sorrows,
                            Jesus will bid them depart.
                            Trust in the Lord, trust in the Lord,
                            Sing when your trials are greatest,
                            Trust in the Lord and take heart.






                            Therefore…stand fast in the Lord, beloved.

                            Be faithful, ever faithful,
                            Where’er thy lot be cast,

                            Stand fast for Christ thy Savior!
                            Stand fast He stands fast for thee.
                            Stand fast for Christ thy Savior!
                            Stand faithful to the last!

                              And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory,
                              the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

                              John 1:14
                              He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.
                              Colossians 1:15



                              I go to prepare a place for you…that where I am, there you may be also.
                              John 14:3

                              When We See Christ

                              Oft times the day seems long, our trials hard to bear,
                              We’re tempted to complain, to murmur and despair;
                              But Christ will soon appear to catch His Bride away,
                              All tears forever over in God’s eternal day.
                              .
                              It will be worth it all when we see Jesus,
                              Life’s trials will seem so small when we see Christ;
                              One glimpse of His dear face all sorrow will erase,
                              So bravely run the race till we see Christ.




                              For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face.
                              1 Corinthians 13:12

                              Face to Face With Christ, My Savior

                              Face to face with Christ, my Savior,
                              Face to face what will it be,
                              When with rapture I behold Him,
                              Jesus Christ who died for me?
                              .
                              Face to face I shall behold Him,
                              Far beyond the starry sky;
                              Face to face in all His glory,
                              I shall see Him by and by!




                              I will speak with Him face to face.
                              Numbers 12:8

                              Saved by Grace

                              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!
                              .
                              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.



                              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!

                                And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body;
                                and be thankful.

                                The Blessings That Remain

                                There are loved ones who are missing from the fireside and the feast;
                                There are faces that have vanished, there are voices that have ceased;
                                But we know they passed forever from our mortal grief and pain,
                                And we thank Thee, O our Father, for the blessings that remain.

                                Thanksgiving, oh, Thanksgiving, that their love once blessed us here,
                                That so long they walked beside us, sharing every smile and tear;
                                For the joy the past has brought us, but can never take away,
                                For the sweet and gracious memories growing dearer every day.

                                For the faith that keeps us patient looking at the things unseen,
                                Knowing Spring shall follow Winter and the earth again be green,
                                For the hope of that glad meeting far from mortal grief and pain -
                                We thank Thee, Oh our Father, for the blessings that remain.

                                For the love that still is left us, for the friends who hold us dear,
                                For the lives that yet may need us, for their guidance and their cheer,
                                For the work that waits our doing, for the help we can bestow,
                                For the care that watches o'er us wheresoe'er our steps my go.

                                For the simple joys of living, for the sunshine and the breeze,
                                For the beauty of the flowers and the laden orchard trees,
                                For the night and for the starlight, for the rainbow and the rain,
                                Thanksgiving, O our Father, for the blessings that remain.






                                The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much...
                                Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly.

                                James 5:16-17

                                A Blessing in Prayer

                                There is rest, sweet rest, at the Master’s feet,
                                There is favor now at the mercy seat,
                                For atoning blood has been sprinkled there;
                                There is always a blessing, a blessing in prayer.
                                There’s a blessing in prayer, in believing prayer,
                                When our Savior’s name to the throne we bear;
                                Then a Father’s love will receive us there;
                                There is always a blessing, a blessing in prayer.



                                Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!
