  • Evening Praise the Lord




    Praise the Lord!

    Under His wings you will find refuge…You will not fear the terror of night.
    Psalm 91:4-5





    The Day is Past and Over

    The day is past and over; all thanks, O Lord, to Thee!
    We pray Thee that offense less the hours of dark may be.
    O Jesus, keep us in Thy sight,
    And guard us through the coming night.

    The joys of day are over; we lift our hearts to Thee,
    And call on Thee that sinless the hours of dark may be.
    O Jesus, make their darkness light,
    And guard us through the coming night.

    Lord, that in death I sleep not, and lest my foe should say,
    I have prevailed against him, lighten mine eyes, I pray,
    O Jesus, keep me in Thy sight,
    And guard me through the coming night.

    The toils of day are over; we raise our hymn to Thee,
    And ask that free from peril the hours of dark may be.
    O Jesus, keep us in Thy sight,
    And guard us through the coming night.

    Be Thou our souls’ preserver, O God, for Thou dost know,
    How many are the perils through which we have to go.
    Lord Jesus Christ, O hear our call
    And guard and save us from them all.






    Even the night shall be light about me.
    Psalm 139:11

    Round Me Falls the Night

    Round me falls the night; Savior, be my light:
    Through the hours in darkness shrouded
    Let me see Thy face unclouded;
    Let Thy glory shine in this heart of mine.
    Earthly work is done, earthly sounds are none;
    Rest in sleep and silence seeking,
    Let my hear Thee softly speaking;
    In my spirit’s ear whisper “I am near.”



    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

    • Praise the Lord!

      Also to You, O Lord, belongs mercy;
      For You render to each one according to his work.

      Psalm 62:12

      For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ,
      that each one may receive the things done in the body,
      according to what he has done, whether good or bad.

      2 Corinthians 5:10





      His Plan for Me

      When I stand at the Judgment Seat of Christ
      And He shows me His plan for me,
      The plan of my life as it might have been,
      Had He had His way; and I see

      How I blocked Him here, and I checked Him there
      And I would not yield my will,
      Will there be grief in my Saviour's eyes,
      Grief though He loves me still?

      How I blocked Him here, and I checked Him there
      And I would not yield my will,
      Will there be grief in my Saviour’s eyes,
      Grief though He loves me still?

      Then my desolate heart will well nigh break
      With tears that I cannot shed;
      I shall cover my face with my empty hands;
      I shall bow my uncrowned head.

      Lord of the years that are left to me,
      I give them to Thy hand;
      Take me and break me, mold me to
      The pattern Thou hast planned.




      I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. Galatians 2:20

      Only to Know

      Only to know that the path I tread
      Is the path marked out for me;
      That the way, though thorny, rough and steep,
      Will lead me nearer to Thee!
      Nearer to Thee! nearer to Thee!
      Blessed Redeemer, to Thee!
      Only to know that the path I tread
      Is bringing me nearer to Thee!



      Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

        Praise the Lord!
        Now a leper came to Him, imploring Him, kneeling down to Him and saying to Him, "If You are willing, You can make me clean." Then Jesus, moved with compassion, stretched out His hand and touched him, and said to him, "I am willing; be cleansed." As soon as He had spoken, immediately the leprosy left him, and he was cleansed. Mark 1:40-42
        Then he gave her his hand and lifted her up.
        Acts 9:41





        The Touch of His Hand on Mine

        There are days so dark that I seek in vain
        For the face of my friend divine;
        But though darkness hide, He is there to guide
        By the touch of His hand on mine.

        There are times, when tired of the toilsome road,
        That for ways of the world I pine;
        But He draws me back to the upward track
        By the touch of His hand on mine.

        When the way is dim, and I cannot see
        Through the mist of His wise design,
        How my glad heart yearns and my faith returns
        By the touch of His hand on mine.

        In the last sad hour, as I stand alone,
        Where the powers of death combine,
        While the dark waves roll He will guide my soul
        By the touch of His hand on mine.

        Oh, the touch of His hand on mine,
        Oh, the touch of His hand on mine,
        There is grace and power, in the trying hour,
        In the touch of His hand on mine.






        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

        Does Jesus Care?

        Does Jesus care when my heart is pained
        Too deeply for mirth or song,
        As the burdens press, and the cares distress
        And the way grows weary and long?
        Oh yes, He cares, I know He cares,
        His heart is touched with my grief;
        When the days are weary, the long nights dreary,
        I know my Savior cares.

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





          Always Enough

          Always enough of grace is giv’n to me from day to day,
          Always enough of grace to help me on the upward way.

          Always enough of comfort to console me when I’m sad,
          Always enough of peace in time of storm to make me glad.

          Always enough of Jesus’ love to fill me with delight,
          Always enough of hope to keep faith’s altar burning bright.

          Always enough of joy to make my heart rejoice and sing,
          Always enough of pleasure in the service of my King.

          Always enough for me,
          This is my song, the whole day long,
          There’s always enough for me.






          For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels,
          and then He will reward each according to his works
          .
          Matthew 16:27

          The Last Mile of the Way

          If I walk in the pathway of duty,
          If I work till the close of the day;
          I shall see the great King in His beauty,
          When I’ve gone the last mile of the way.
          When I’ve gone the last mile of the way,
          I will rest at the close of the day,
          And I know there are joys that await me,
          When I’ve gone the last mile of the way.

            Praise the Lord!
            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 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!






            Whoever believes will not act hastily.
            Isaiah 28:16
            The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delights in his way.
            Psalm 37:23

            He That Believeth

            He that believeth shall not make haste
            In useless hurry his strength to waste;
            Who walks with God can afford to wait,
            For he can never arrive too late.
            He that believeth shall walk serene,
            With ordered steppings and leisured mien,
            He dwells in the midst of eternities,
            And the timeless ages of God are his.

              To You, O LORD, I lift up my soul...O my God, I trust in You;
              Let me not be ashamed; let not my enemies triumph over me.

              Psalm 25:1-2





              To Thee I Lift My Soul

              To Thee I lift my soul,
              In Thee my trust repose;
              My God, O put me not to shame
              Before triumphant foes.

              None shall be put to shame
              That humbly wait for Thee,
              But those that willfully transgress,
              On them the shame shall be.

              Show me Thy paths, O Lord,
              Teach me Thy perfect way,
              O guide me in Thy truth divine,
              And lead me day by day.

              For Thou art God that dost
              To me salvation send,
              And patiently through all the day
              Upon Thee I attend.

              Recall Thy mercies, Lord,
              Their tenderness untold,
              And all Thy loving-kindnesses,
              For they have been of old.






              Show me Your ways, O LORD;
              Teach me Your paths.

              Psalm 25:4

              Lord, To Me Thy Ways Make Known

              Lord, to me Thy ways make known,
              Guide in truth and teach Thou me;
              Thou my Savior art alone,
              All the day I wait for Thee.
              Grace and truth shall mark the way
              Where the Lord His own will lead.
              If His Word they still obey
              And His testimonies heed.

                I trust in You.
                Psalm 25:2





                Simply Trusting

                Simply trusting all the way,
                Taking Jesus at His word;
                Simply trusting, when I pray,
                Every promise of my Lord.

                Trusting when my sky is bright,
                Trusting when my heart is glad;
                Trusting in the gloom of night,
                When my every thought is sad.

                Trusting when ’tis well with me,
                Trusting whatsoe’er befall;
                Trusting Jesus’ love for me,
                Simply trusting, that is all.

                Simply trusting, simply trusting,
                Trusting Jesus, that is all;
                To the cross of Christ I cling;
                Simply trusting, that is all.

                  • 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 take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. Ephesians 6:13-16

                    Therefore…stand fast in the Lord, beloved.
                    Philippians 4:1

                    Stand Fast For Christ Thy Savior

                    Stand fast for Christ thy Savior!
                    Stand fast whate’er betide!
                    Keep thou the Faith, unstained, unshamed,
                    By keeping at His side;
                    Be faithful, ever faithful,
                    Where’er thy lot be cast,
                    Stand fast for Christ thy Savior!
                    Stand fast whate’er betide!
                    Stand fast for Christ thy Savior!
                    Stand fast He stands fast for thee.
                    Stand fast for Christ thy Savior!
                    Stand faithful to the last!

                    • Evening Praise the Lord




                      Praise the Lord!
                      For this reason I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day. 2 Timothy 1:12




                      I Know Whom I Have Believed

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

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

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

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




                      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 4:8

                      I love His Appearing

                      There was One came to die in the sinner’s stead,
                      Who the fullness of grace brought to view;
                      He is coming again, Judge of quick and dead,
                      And I love His appearing, don’t you?
                      The glad day is nearing, ’tis true;
                      He will take us on high
                      Where the saints cannot die;
                      I love His appearing, don’t you?


                      Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

                        Sunday Morning Praise


                        Sing Out Your Gladsome Carols

                        Sing out your gladsome carols, set all the echoes ringing!
                        Welcome the joyous season, welcome it now with singing.
                        Light in the midst of darkness, coming from realms of day;
                        Hail to the King of Glory, ’neath the star He lay!

                        Up from the lowly manger, tell out the wondrous story!
                        Jesus who brought salvation, dwells in His home in glory.
                        Looks with His love unceasing, down to the Christmas earth;
                        O let Him see increasing, faith in His great worth!

                        Memory so sweet and precious, Christ in a manger dwelling!
                        Born in a lowly stable, coming from light excelling!
                        Seeking that lowest place, henceforth that all might know,
                        How He who brought salvation, came God’s love to show.

                        Welcome! welcome! Joyous Christmas season!
                        All thy gladness hath a blessed reason.
                        Welcome! welcome! Joyous Christmas season!

                          Then the angel said to them, “…I bring you good tidings of great joy…”
                          Luke 2:10





                          Carol, Sweetly Carol

                          Carol, sweetly carol, a coming Savior today;
                          Bear the joyful tidings, oh, bear them far away:
                          Carol, sweetly carol, till earth’s remotest bound
                          Shall hear the mighty chorus, and echo back the sound.

                          Carol, sweetly carol, as when the angel throng
                          O’er the vales of Judah awoke the heavenly song:
                          Carol, sweetly carol, goodwill, and peace, and love,
                          Glory in the highest to God who reigns above.

                          Carol, sweetly carol, the happy Christmas time:
                          Hark! When the bells are pealing their merry, merry chime:
                          Carol, sweetly carol ye shining angels above,
                          Sing in loudest numbers oh, sing of redeeming love.

                          Carol, sing the carol sweetly today;

                          • Praise the Lord!

                            Indeed the cypress trees rejoice over you, and the cedars of Lebanon.
                            Isaiah 14:8





                            The Cedars and the Pines

                            In the tops of the cedars and pines,
                            A whisper was heard sweet and low;
                            And each branch as it hears and inclines,
                            Shakes off its fair burden of snow.
                            List!, the whisper says, Christmas is near;
                            The pines and the cedars all know
                            That they’ll aid in the joy and the cheer,
                            For this day they flourish and grow.

                            They have heard that their branches so green,
                            All ladened with silver and gold,
                            To enliven the fairy-like scene
                            Tinted candles abundant will hold.
                            While their fruits far more precious and rare,
                            Than summer or autumn can bring
                            Cause the children, so happy and fair,
                            Their praises to shout and to sing.

                            Then the whispering turns to a song,
                            And catching the welcoming cheer,
                            They, too, for the Christmas-day long,
                            And joy to leave forests so drear.
                            As the eve of the year nears its close,
                            When verdure and flowers seem dead,
                            Then the evergreen calm in repose,
                            To Christmas and gladness is wed.




                            Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

                              Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, upon them a light has shined.

                              Isaiah 9:2
                              To give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death,
                              To guide our feet into the way of peace."

                              Luke 1:79





                              The People That Long in Darkness Pined

                              The people that long in darkness pined, have seen a glorious Light;
                              The people dwell in day, who dwelt in death’s surrounding night.
                              To hail Thy rise, Thou better Sun, the gathering nations come,
                              Joyous as when the reapers bear the harvest treasures home.

                              For Thou our burden hast removed, and quelled the oppressor’s sway,
                              Quick as the slaughtered squadrons fell in Midian’s evil day.
                              To us a Child of Hope is born, to us a Son is given,
                              Him shall the tribes of earth obey, Him all the hosts of heaven.

                              His name shall be the Prince of Peace, forevermore adored,
                              The Wonderful, the Counselor, the great and mighty Lord.
                              His power increasing still shall spread, His reign no end shall know:
                              Justice shall guard His throne above, and peace abound below.
