    Praise the Lord!

    The grace of God which was given to you by Christ Jesus.
    1 Corinthians 1:4





    O Grace of God So Boundless

    There was never a prince so royal,
    So worthy of deathless fame;
    There was never a friend so loyal,
    Such an ocean of love in a name!
    There were never such springs of sweetness,
    Such streams of ineffable bliss,
    Such powers of holy meetness
    As welled in that heart of His.

    Ever busy His hands with kindness,
    His lips overflowed with grace,
    While His feet were impelled to mercy,
    Love immortal illumined His face.
    And yet never a fiend did fathom
    Such depth of derision and shame,
    And never the vilest traitor
    Did bear such a burden of blame.

    There were never such floods of sorrow,
    Such grief as the Savior braved,
    As were brimming His cup on Calvary,
    When He drained it that we might be saved.
    O, was ever a heart so hardened,
    And can such ingratitude be,
    That one for whom Jesus suffered
    Will say, “It is nothing to me?”


    O grace of God, so boundless!
    O love of Christ, so true!
    Has sin your soul so blinded,
    That Jesus is nothing to you?





    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!

      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.




      Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

        Praise the Lord!

        For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
        1 Corinthians 2:2





        Ask What Great Thing I Know

        Ask what great thing I know, that delights and stirs me so?
        What the high reward I win? Whose the name I glory in?
        Jesus Christ, the Crucified.

        What is faith’s foundation strong? What awakes my heart to song?
        He who bore my sinful load, purchased for me peace with God,
        Jesus Christ, the Crucified.

        Who is He that makes me wise to discern where duty lies?
        Who is He that makes me true duty, when discerned to do,
        Jesus Christ, the Crucified.

        Who defeats my fiercest foes? Who consoles my saddest woes?
        Who revives my fainting heart, healing all its hidden smart?
        Jesus Christ, the Crucified.

        Who is life in life to me? Who the death of death will be?
        Who will place me on His right, with the countless hosts of light?
        Jesus Christ, the Crucified.

        This is that great thing I know, this delights and stirs me so;
        Faith in Him who died to save, Him who triumphed over the grave:
        Jesus Christ, the Crucified.

          Praise the Lord!

          But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit.
          For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.

          1 Corinthians 2:10





          Deeper, Deeper

          Deeper, deeper in the love of Jesus
          Daily let me go;
          Higher, higher in the school of wisdom,
          More of grace to know.

          Deeper, deeper, blessed Holy Spirit,
          Take me deeper still,
          Till my life is wholly lost in Jesus,
          And His perfect will.

          Deeper, deeper! though it cost hard trials,
          Deeper let me go!
          Rooted in the holy love of Jesus,
          Let me fruitful grow.

          Deeper, higher, every day in Jesus,
          Till all conflict past,
          Finds me conqu’ror, and in His own image
          Perfected at last.

          Deeper, deeper in the faith of Jesus,
          Holy faith and true;
          In His pow’r and soul exulting wisdom
          Let me peace pursue.

          O deeper yet, I pray,
          And higher every day,
          And wiser, blessed Lord,
          In Thy precious, holy Word.

            Praise the Lord!
            So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase. Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor. For we are God's fellow workers; you are God's field, you are God's building. 1 Corinthians 3:7-9




            God the Lord Does Ask

            God the Lord does ask us to do a task,
            Whether planting or watering seed.
            We are servants all of our God who has called
            Us to come to Him and believe.
            We all are God’s fellow workers;
            We’re His field where His seed does grow.

            God alone does know how to make things grow;
            Let none quarrel or be filled with pride.
            For the ones who sow and who water know
            That their purpose is unified.
            We all are God’s fellow workers;
            Each man’s labor will bring reward.

            By God’s gift of grace, a foundation’s placed
            And a building ere long does rise.
            But we each must take care how we build our share;
            It must rest upon Jesus Christ.
            For we are the Lord’s own building;
            Our foundation is Christ the Lord.

            If we build with gold that has worth untold
            Or with silver or costly stones,
            Then our work still will last when the judgment has passed;
            Its true character will be shown.
            The Day will reveal each building;
            Each man’s work will be tested by fire.

            If our work displays only wood, straw, hay,
            We will suffer great loss and shame.
            For though we will survive, we will win no prize;
            We’ll escape only as through flames.
            O Lord, may we build with wisdom,
            That our work may come forth as gold!




            Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

              Praise the Lord!

              Whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas, or the world or life or death,
              or things present or things to come all are yours.
              And you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s.

              1 Corinthians 3:22-23





              I am His, and He is Mine

              Loved with everlasting love, led by grace that love to know;
              Gracious Spirit from above, Thou hast taught me it is so!
              O this full and perfect peace! O this transport all divine!
              In a love which cannot cease, I am His, and He is mine.

              Heav’n above is softer blue, Earth around is sweeter green!
              Something lives in every hue Christless eyes have never seen;
              Birds with gladder songs o’erflow, flowers with deeper beauties shine,
              Since I know, as now I know, I am His, and He is mine.

              Things that once were wild alarms cannot now disturb my rest;
              Closed in everlasting arms, pillowed on the loving breast.
              O to lie forever here, doubt and care and self resign,
              While He whispers in my ear, I am His, and He is mine.

              His forever, only His; who the Lord and me shall part?
              Ah, with what a rest of bliss Christ can fill the loving heart!
              Heav’n and earth may fade and flee, firstborn light in gloom decline;
              But while God and I shall be, I am His, and He is mine.




              Yes, Amen and Amen! I am His, and He is Mine!



              Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

                Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble…For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds through Christ. 2 Corinthians 1:3, 5




                Jesus, Lover of My Soul

                Jesus, lover of my soul, let me to Thy bosom fly,
                While the nearer waters roll, while the tempest still is high.
                Hide me, O my Savior, hide, till the storm of life is past;
                Safe into the haven guide; O receive my soul at last.

                Other refuge have I none, hangs my helpless soul on Thee;
                Leave, ah! leave me not alone, still support and comfort me.
                All my trust on Thee is stayed, all my help from Thee I bring;
                Cover my defenseless head with the shadow of Thy wing.

                Wilt Thou not regard my call? Wilt Thou not accept my prayer?
                Lo! I sink, I faint, I fall Lo! on Thee I cast my care;
                Reach me out Thy gracious hand! While I of Thy strength receive,
                Hoping against hope I stand, dying, and behold, I live.

                Thou, O Christ, art all I want, more than all in Thee I find;
                Raise the fallen, cheer the faint, heal the sick, and lead the blind.
                Just and holy is Thy name, I am all unrighteousness;
                False and full of sin I am; Thou art full of truth and grace.

                Plenteous grace with Thee is found, grace to cover all my sin;
                Let the healing streams abound; make and keep me pure within.
                Thou of life the fountain art, freely let me take of Thee;
                Spring Thou up within my heart; rise to all eternity.

                  As you are partakers of the sufferings, so also you will partake of the consolation.
                  2 Corinthians 1:7





                  As Above the Darkest Storm Cloud

                  As above the darkest storm cloud
                  Shines the sun, serenely bright,
                  Waiting to restore to nature
                  All the glory of his light,
                  So, behind each cloud of sorrow,
                  So, in each affliction, stands,
                  Hid, an angel, with a blessing
                  From the Father in his hand.

                  As without the tempest, pouring
                  O’er the earth the welcome rain,
                  All were but a fruitless desert,
                  Barren sand for ripening grain,
                  So if ne’er a cloud of sadness
                  Veiled the sunshine of the soul,
                  If affliction’s waves were never
                  Suffered o’er the heart to roll.

                  Love and faith might fail forever
                  To bring forth their fruits of peace;
                  Heaven’s good seed of truth would perish
                  In a thorny wilderness.
                  So, with cloud and storm and tempest
                  Grows our earthly summer dim,
                  That the rebel heart, our Father
                  Thus may win to turn to Him.

                    The fragrance of Christ.
                    2 Corinthians 2:15





                    Still Sweeter Every Day

                    To Jesus every day I find my heart is closer drawn,
                    He’s fairer than the glory of the gold and purple dawn;
                    He’s all my fancy pictures in its fairest dreams, and more,
                    Each day He grows still sweeter than He was the day before.

                    His glory broke upon me when I saw Him from afar,
                    He’s fairer than the lily, brighter than the morning star;
                    He fills and satisfies my longing spirit o’er and o’er,
                    Each day He grows still sweeter than He was the day before.

                    My heart is sometimes heavy, but He comes with sweet relief,
                    He folds me to His bosom when I droop with blighting grief;
                    I love the Christ who all my burdens in His body bore,
                    Each day He grows still sweeter than He was the day before.

                    The half cannot be fancied this side the golden shore;
                    O there He’ll be still sweeter than He ever was before.

                      "The sweet fragrance of Jesus"! I've not heard it expressed that way before. A sweet fragrance is healing, it lifts my spirit.

                        Hello bybee! When matching a verse to the hymn "Still Sweeter Every Day" and I read "The sweet fragrance of Jesus," I like it, that's it. The Evening Praise the Lord I'll be posting the hymn "The Loveliness of Christ." I like that hymn because He is the altogether lovely.

                          Evening Praise the Lord.




                          Praise the Lord!

                          Indeed a greater than Solomon is here.
                          Luke 11:31

                          Yes, he is altogether lovely.
                          Song of Solomon 5:16





                          The Loveliness of Christ

                          Could we catch the glist’ning of the dew or snow flake,
                          Or the rainbow colors painted on a clouds,
                          Add to these the brightness of the stars and moonlight,
                          And the mountain white with mountain peaks in shroud;
                          Then if we could catch the glitter of each jewel
                          From the earth, or from the briny sea,
                          Blend them all together in one mighty prism,
                          Still the loveliness of Christ is more to me.

                          Did you ever see a baby smile in waking,
                          Or behold the mother light in eyes of love,
                          Something which no artist ever yet was able,
                          To portray, unless inspired from above?
                          Yet my soul hath seen a vision quite immortal,
                          Far beyond the power of human eyes to see,
                          Something sweeter, grander, holier and lasting
                          ’Tis the loveliness of Jesus Christ to me.

                          I have reveled in the glory of the sunset,
                          And the blending of God’s colors at the dawn,
                          I have marveled at the plumage of the flowers,
                          And I’ve thrilled while list’ning to the night birds’ song.
                          I have passed through lanes with orange perfume laden,
                          Till enraptured in its magic pow’r I’d be.
                          Could some way be found to gather these and blend them,
                          Still the loveliness of Christ is more to me.

                          He is altogether lovely, He’s the fairest of the fair,
                          And on Him alone through life I can depend.
                          Oh all language fails completely when I try to tell the world
                          Of the loveliness of Christ my Lord and friend.




                          Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

                            Praise the Lord!

                            Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us,
                            that we should be called children of God!

                            Sunday Morning Praise


                            Behold the Amazing Gift of Love

                            Behold the amazing gift of love
                            The Father hath bestowed
                            On us, the sinful sons of men,
                            To call us sons of God!

                            Concealed as yet this honor lies,
                            By this dark world unknown,
                            A world that knew not when He came,
                            Even God’s eternal Son.

                            High is the rank we now possess;
                            But higher we shall rise;
                            Though what we shall hereafter be
                            Is hid from mortal eyes.

                            Our souls, we know, when He appears,
                            Shall bear His image bright;
                            For all His glory, full disclosed,
                            Shall open to our sight.

                            A hope so great, and so divine,
                            May trials well endure;
                            And purge the soul from sense and sin,
                            As Christ Himself is pure.




                            Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

                              Evening Praise the Lord.




                              Praise the Lord!

                              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.

                              When in service for my Lord dark may be the night,
                              But I’ll cling more close to Him, He will give me light;
                              Satan’s snares may vex my soul, turn my tho’ts aside;
                              But my Lord goes ahead, leads whate’er betide.

                              When in valleys low I look tow’rd the mountain height,
                              And behold my Savior there, leading in the fight,
                              With a tender hand outstretched tow’rd the valley low,
                              Guiding me, I can see, as I onward go.

                              When before me billows rise form the mighty deep,
                              Then my Lord directs my bark; He doth safely keep,
                              And He leads me gently on thro’ this world below;
                              He’s a real friend to me, O I love Him so.

                              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! Amen! and Amen!

                                Sing, My Soul, His Wondrous Love

                                Sing, my soul, His wondrous love,
                                Who from yon bright world above,
                                Ever watchful o’er our race,
                                Still to man extends His grace;
                                Sing, my soul, His wondrous love.

                                Heaven and earth by Him were made;
                                He by all must be obeyed;
                                What are we that He should show
                                So much love to us below?
                                Sing, my soul, His wondrous love.

                                God, thus merciful and good,
                                Bought us with the Savior’s blood;
                                And to make our safety sure,
                                Guides us by His spirit pure;
                                Sing, my soul, His wondrous love.

                                Sing, my soul, adore His name,
                                Let His glory be my theme;
                                Praise Him till He calls thee home;
                                Trust His love for all to come;
