  • Evening Praise the Lord.




    Praise the Lord!

    Behold, I am building a temple for the name of the LORD my God, to dedicate it to Him.
    2 Chronicles 2:4





    Lord God, Let Me Dedicate

    Lord God, let me dedicate, all this year to Thee,
    In whatever worldly state Thou wilt have me be:
    Not from sorrow, pain or care, freedom dare I claim;
    This alone shall be my prayer, glorify Thy name.

    Can a child presume to choose where or how to live?
    Can a Father’s love refuse all the best to give?
    More Thou givest every day than the best can claim
    Nor withholdest aught that may glorify Thy name.

    If in mercy Thou wilt spare joys that yet are mine;
    If on life, serene and fair, brighter rays may shine;
    Let my glad heart, while it sings, Thee in all proclaim,
    And, whate’er the future brings, glorify Thy name.

    If Thou callest to the cross, and its shadow come,
    Turning all my gain to loss, shrouding heart and home;
    Let me think how Thy dear Son to His glory came,
    And in deepest woe pray on, “Glorify Thy name.”






    Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me.
    Psalm 139:23-24

    Turn a New Leaf For Me

    Turn a new leaf for me, Father, I pray;
    This one is blotted, O take it away;
    Cleanse all its stains in the blood of the cross;
    Let me in Jesus find gain for my loss.
    Turn a new leaf for me, Father, I pray;
    Turn a new leaf in my life-book today;
    Pardon me graciously, deal with me wondrously,
    Turn a new leaf in my life-book today.



    Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

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

    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!
      For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, says the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9




      Better Than My Best

      I prayed for strength, and then I lost awhile
      All sense of nearness, human and divine;
      The love I leaned on failed and pierced my heart,
      The hands I clung to loosed themselves from mine;
      But while I swayed, weak trembling, and alone,
      The everlasting arms upheld my own.

      I prayed for light; the sun went down in clouds,
      The moon was darkened by a misty doubt,
      The stars of heaven were dimmed by earthly fears,
      And all my little candle flames burned out;
      But while I sat in shadow, wrapped in night,
      The face of Christ made all the darkness bright.

      I prayed for peace, and dreamed of restful ease,
      A slumber free from pain, a hushed repose;
      Above my head the skies were black with storm,
      And fiercer grew the onslaught of my foes;
      But while the battle raged, and wild winds blew,
      I heard His voice and perfect peace I knew.

      I thank you, Lord, You were too wise to heed
      My feeble prayers, and answer as I sought,
      Since these rich gifts Your bounty has bestowed
      Have brought me more than all I asked or thought;
      Giver of good, so answer each request
      With your own giving, better than my best.






      What shall I render to the LORD for all His benefits toward me?
      Psalm 116:12

      Give of Your Best to the Master

      Give of your best to the Master; give of the strength of your youth.
      Throw your soul’s fresh, glowing ardor into the battle for truth.
      Jesus has set the example, dauntless was He, young and brave.
      Give Him your loyal devotion; give Him the best that you have.
      Give of your best to the Master; naught else is worthy His love.
      He gave Himself for your ransom, gave up His glory above.
      Laid down His life without murmur, you from sin’s ruin to save.
      Give Him your heart’s adoration; give Him the best that you have.



      Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

        Praise the Lord!

        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 not delay;
        Who carries the word of the King on its’ way
        Keeps pace with Jahovah’s marching tune,
        And he can never come too soon.

        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.






        Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example that you should follow in His steps.
        1 Peter 2:21

        Stepping in the Light

        Trying to walk in the steps of the Savior,
        Trying to follow our Savior and king;
        Shaping our lives by His blessed example,
        Happy, how happy, the songs that we bring.
        How beautiful to walk in the steps of the Savior,
        Stepping in the light, led in paths of light.

          Lord, what will You have me to do?
          Acts 9:6





          What Wilt Thou Have Me To Do?

          Lord, Thou hast granted salvation to me,
          What wilt Thou have me to do?
          From Satan’s bondage at last I am free,
          What wilt Thou have me to do?

          Since I am saved by the Crucified One,
          What wilt Thou have me to do?
          I would point others to God’s only Son,
          What wilt Thou have me to do?

          Pardon is granted thro’ Him who hath died,
          What wilt Thou have me to do?
          I am so happy with Thee at my side,
          What wilt Thou have me to do?

          Ready and willing Thy voice to obey,
          What wilt Thou have me to do?
          Bid me to follow Thee day unto day,
          What wilt Thou have me to do?

          What wilt Thou have me to do?
          Where wilt Thou have me to go?
          Jesus, my Master, Thy will shall be mine,
          What wilt Thou have me to do?






          The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few.
          Luke 10:2


          While The Years Are Rolling By

          There is work that we can do,
          While the years roll by;
          For the laborers are but few,
          While the years roll by;
          Let us work and watch and pray,
          Till the crowning day,
          There is work that we can do,
          While the years are rolling by.

            Praise the Lord!

            He reserves for us the appointed weeks of the harvest.
            Jeremiah 5:24





            Now Sing We a Song For The Harvest

            Now sing we a song for the harvest;
            Thanksgiving and honor and praise,
            For all that the bountiful Giver
            Hath given to gladden our days.
            For grasses of upland and lowland,
            For fruits of the garden and field,
            For gold which the mine and furrow
            To delver and husbandman yield.

            And thanks for the harvest of beauty,
            For that which the hands cannot hold;
            The harvest, eyes only can gather,
            And only our hearts can enfold.
            We reap it on mountain and moorland,
            We glean it from meadow and lea,
            We garner it from the cloud-land,
            We bind it in sheaves from the sea.

            But now we sing deeper and higher,
            Of harvests the eye cannot see;
            They ripen on mountains of duty,
            Are reaped by the brave and the free.
            O Thou who art Lord of the harvest,
            The Giver who gladdens our days,
            Our hearts are forever repeating,
            Thanksgiving, and honor, and praise!






            I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also.
            John 10:16

            Bring Them In!

            Hark! ’tis the Shepherd’s voice I hear
            Out in the desert dark and drear,
            Calling the sheep who’ve gone astray
            Far from the Shepherd’s fold away.
            Bring them in from the fields of sin,
            Bring them in, yes, bring them in,
            Bring the wand’ring ones to Jesus.

              Praise the Lord!

              They heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden.
              Genesis 3:8





              Christ In His Heavenly Garden

              “Christ in His heavenly garden walks all day,
              And calls to souls upon the world’s highway;
              Wearied with trifles, maimed and sick with sin,
              Christ by the gate stands, and invites them in.

              “How long, unwise, will ye pursue your woe?
              Here from the throne sweet waters ever go:
              Here the white lilies shine like stars above:
              Here in the red rose burns the face of love.

              “ ’Tis not from earthly paths I bid you flee,
              But lighter in My ways your feet will be:
              ’Tis not to summon you from human mirth,
              But add a depth and sweetness not of earth.

              “Still by the gate I stand as on ye stray:
              Turn your steps hither: am not I the Way?
              The sun is falling fast; the night is nigh:
              Why will ye wander? Wherefore will ye die?

              “Look on My hands and side, for I am He:
              None to the Father cometh, but by Me:
              For you I died; once more I call you home:
              I live again for you: My children, come!”






              He went out with His disciples over the Brook Kidron,
              where there was a garden, which He and His disciples entered.

              John 18:1

              In The Garden

              I come to the garden alone
              While the dew is still on the roses
              And the voice I hear falling on my ear
              The Son of God discloses.
              And He walks with me, and He talks with me,
              And He tells me I am His own;
              And the joy we share as we tarry there,
              None other has ever known.

                Therefore, for Your name's sake,
                Lead me and guide me.

                Psalm 31:3





                Sunday Morning Praise

                I Do Not Ask, O Lord

                I do not ask, O Lord, that life may be a pleasant road;
                I do not ask that Thou wouldst take from me aught of its load.
                I do not ask that flowers should always spring beneath my feet;
                I know too well the poison and the sting of things too sweet.

                For one thing, only Lord, dear Lord, I plead: lead me aright,
                Though strength should falter and heart should bleed, through peace to light.
                I do not ask, O Lord, that Thou shouldst shed full radiance here
                Give but a ray of peace, that I may tread without a fear.

                I do not ask my cross to understand, my way to see,
                Better in darkness just to feel Thy hand, and follow Thee.
                Joy is like restless day; but peace divine like quiet night,
                Lead me, O Lord, till perfect day shall shine, through peace to light.






                You shall hide them in the secret place of Your presence.

                He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
                Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

                Psalm 91:1

                In the Secret Place of God

                He that dwelleth in the secret place of God, Most High,
                When the days of biting bitterness and travail draweth nigh,
                With the crimsoned lintel over and the sheltering solace sure,
                Doth abide beneath the shadow of Omnipotence, secure.
                Art thou dwelling in this hiding, underneath the sprinkled blood?
                Is thy soul, by grace abiding “In the secret place of God?”
                There is fullness there, and sweetness, all thy pow’rs find full employ,
                Gladness, comforting, completeness, peace, and everlasting joy.

                  Praise the Lord!

                  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

                  Abide with me; fast falls the eventide;
                  The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide.
                  When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
                  Help of the helpless, O abide with me.

                  Swift to its close ebbs out life’s little day;
                  Earth’s joys grow dim; its glories pass away;
                  Change and decay in all around I see;
                  O Thou who changest not, abide with me.

                  I need Thy presence every passing hour.
                  What but Thy grace can foil the tempter’s power?
                  Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be?
                  Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with me.

                  I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless;
                  Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness.
                  Where is death’s sting? Where, grave, thy victory?
                  I triumph still, if Thou abide with me.

                  Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes;
                  Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies.
                  Heaven’s morning breaks, and earth’s vain shadows flee;
                  In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.






                  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 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.

                  • Praise the Lord!

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





                    It Is Mine

                    God’s abiding peace is in my soul today,
                    Yes, I feel it now, yes I feel it now;
                    He has taken all my doubts and fears away,
                    Tho’ I cannot tell you how.

                    He has wrought in me a sweet and perfect rest,
                    In my raptured heart I can feel it now;
                    He each passing moment keeps me saved and blest,
                    Floods with light my heart and brow.

                    He has given me a never failing joy,
                    Oh, I have it now! oh, I have it now!
                    To His praise I will my ransomed pow’rs employ,
                    And renew my grateful vow.

                    Oh, the love of God is comforting my soul,
                    For His love is mine, yes, His love is mine!
                    Waves of joy and gladness o’er my spirit roll,
                    Thrilling me with life divine.

                    It is mine, mine, blessed be His name!
                    He has given peace, perfect peace to me;
                    It is mine, mine, ever blessed be His name!
                    Mine for all eternity!






                    For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.
                    Matthew 18:20
                    For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
                    Hebrews 13:5
                    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.

                    • Evening Praise the Lord




                      Praise the Lord!

                      Here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.
                      Hebrews 13:14





                      No Abiding City Here

                      We do not know, and can not tell
                      What path our feet may take;
                      We only know that all is well
                      When borne for Jesus’ sake.

                      We lay our life, our little all,
                      In His dear guiding hand,
                      And hasten to obey the call
                      We strive to understand.

                      A home, a harp, a robe and crown,
                      To faithful followers giv’n;
                      The trials, crosses, all laid down,
                      Then rest, sweet rest, in Heav’n.

                      We’ve no abiding city here;
                      We seek for one to come;
                      We strive to prove our title clear
                      To mansions fair, at home.






                      Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God,
                      prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

                      Revelation 21:2
                      The wall…was of jasper, and the city was pure gold.
                      Revelation 21:18

                      Blessed Homeland

                      A city awaits us we soon shall behold,
                      Whose walls are of jasper, whose streets are of gold;
                      Not half of its glories have ever been told,
                      Blessed homeland, dear homeland, sweet home of the soul.
                      Oh, I long, yes I long there to dwell,
                      Mid the pleasures no mortal can tell,
                      In the place our dear Savior has gone to prepare,
                      Blessed homeland, dear homeland, sweet home of the soul.

                      • Praise the Lord!

                        Behold, a king will reign in righteousness, and princes will rule with justice.
                        A man will be as a hiding place from the wind, and a cover from the tempest,
                        As rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land.

                        Isaiah 32:1-2

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

                        Psalm 32:7





                        The Hiding Place

                        Have you ever wished, deep down inside
                        That you could find a place to hide?
                        To hide from folks who come your way
                        With endless problems day by day?
                        To hide from all that lies ahead,
                        The unseen foes and griefs you dread?
                        To flee decisions you must make,
                        Avoid the path that you must take?
                        To run away and find a spot
                        Where even self can be forgot?

                        Earth has no place as such you seek
                        No place of refuge for the weak;
                        For ev'ry shelter here on earth
                        Soon proves to be of little worth
                        And we are left alone to face
                        The woes that plague the human race.

                        BUT WAIT!! The Rock of Ages He still stands,
                        A refuge from all life's demands;
                        A place to hide to weep to rest;
                        A place to hover and be blest.

                        For Jesus is that Rock Who stands
                        Holding forth His nail pierced hands
                        A covert from the storm is He,
                        Saying, “Come, and hide in Me.”





                        For You have been…a refuge from the storm.
                        Isaiah 25:4

                        A Shelter in the Time of Storm

                        The Lord’s our Rock, in him we hide,
                        A shelter in the time of storm;
                        Secure whatever ill betide,
                        A shelter in the time of storm.
                        Oh, Jesus is a Rock in a weary land,
                        A weary land, a weary land...
                        Jesus is a Rock in a weary land,
                        A shelter in the time of storm.



                        Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

                        • Evening Praise the Lord




                          Praise the Lord!

                          Then He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm.
                          Matthew 8:26-27





                          Jesus, Savior, Pilot Me

                          Jesus, Savior, pilot me over life’s tempestuous sea;
                          Unknown waves before me roll, hiding rock and treacherous shoal.
                          Chart and compass come from Thee; Jesus, Savior, pilot me.

                          Though the sea be smooth and bright, sparkling with the stars of night,
                          And my ship’s path be ablaze with the light of halcyon days,
                          Still I know my need of Thee; Jesus, Savior, pilot me.

                          When the darkling heavens frown, and the wrathful winds come down,
                          And the fierce waves, tossed on high, lash themselves against the sky,
                          Jesus, Savior, pilot me, over life’s tempestuous sea.

                          As a mother stills her child, Thou canst hush the ocean wild;
                          Boisterous waves obey Thy will, when Thou sayest to them, “Be still!”
                          Wondrous sovereign of the sea, Jesus, Savior, pilot me.

                          When at last I near the shore, and the fearful breakers roar
                          ’Twixt me and the peaceful rest, then, while leaning on Thy breast,
                          May I hear Thee say to me, “Fear not, I will pilot thee.”






                          He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed…and He guided them to their desired haven.
                          Psalm 107:29-30

                          Guide Us, Pilot, To The Harbor

                          Our frail bark is on the ocean,
                          By the tempest wildly tossed;
                          Savior, calm the troubled waters,
                          Ere we are forever lost.
                          Oh, the storm! the wild, dark storm!
                          See the lighthouse on the strand;
                          Guide us, Pilot, to the harbor,
                          Safe into Immanuel’s land.

                              I Love to Steal Awhile Away

                              I love to steal awhile away
                              From every cumbering care,
                              And spend the hours of closing day
                              In humble, grateful, prayer.

                              I love in solitude to shed
                              The repentful tear,
                              And all His promises to plead
                              Where none but God can hear.

                              I love to think on mercies past,
                              And future good implore,
                              And all my cares and sorrows cast
                              On God, whom I adore.

                              I love by faith to take a view
                              Of brighter scenes in heaven;
                              The prospect doth my strength renew,
                              While here by tempests driven.

                              Thus, when life’s toilsome day is o’er,
                              May its departing ray,
                              Be calm at this impressive hour,
                              And lead to endless day.

                              But take thy Savior at His word, and know thou shalt prevail.
                              What tho’ thy prayers thro’ many tears may reach His throne on high;
                              He knows the anguish of thy heart, and will not pass thee by.
                              Tho’ the cross is hard to bear, there is balm in secret prayer;
                              Go and tell thy sorrows there, and leave it all with Jesus.

                              .....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

                              • Evening Praise the Lord.




                                Praise the Lord!
                                But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. Matthew 6:6




                                The Simple, Earnest Prayer

                                In the twilight of the morning, when the shadows steal away,
                                And we wake from balmy slumber to behold another day,
                                Let us go alone in secret, and unburden all our care
                                At the feet of our Redeemer, in the simple, earnest prayer.

                                In the noontide, calm and peaceful, when we pause awhile to rest,
                                Ere the sun in all its glory is declining towards the west;
                                In the midst of our temptation, when the cross is hard to bear,
                                If we cannot go in secret, God will hear the silent prayer.

                                When the toils of day are over, and we seek the hallowed place
                                Where by faith we meet our Savior, and adore Him for His grace;
                                How we feel our burden lighter, till we loose our weight of care,
                                While we lift our hearts together in the simple, earnest prayer.

                                Let Thy presence, blessed Savior, our protection ever be;
                                Give us strength for every trial, keep, oh, keep us close to Thee.






                                The Lord’s Prayer

                                Matthew 6:9-13

                                Our Father in heaven,
                                Hallowed be Your name.
                                Your kingdom come.
                                Your will be done
                                On earth as it is in heaven.
                                Give us this day our daily bread.
                                And forgive us our trespasses,
                                As we forgive those who trespass against us.
                                And do not lead us into temptation,
                                But deliver us from the evil one.
                                For Yours is the kingdom
                                And the power and the glory forever.

                                Amen.



                                Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

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