    Praise the Lord!

    For we are sojourners and pilgrims before You, as were all our fathers.
    1 Chronicles 29:15
    The days of our lives are seventy years; and if by reason of strength they are eighty years, yet their boast is only labor and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away. So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. Psalm 90:10, 12




    Time, By Moments, Steals Away

    Time, by moments, steals away, first the hour, and then the day;
    Small the daily loss appears, yet it soon amounts to years:
    Thus another year is flown, now it is no more our own
    If it brought or promised good, than the years before the flood.

    But may none of us forget it has left us much in debt;
    Favors from the Lord received, sins that have His Spirit grieved;
    Marked by an unerring hand in His book recorded stand;
    Who can tell the vast amount, placed to each of our account?

    Happy, the believing soul! Christ for you has paid the whole;
    While you own the debt is large, you may plead a full discharge:
    But poor careless sinner, say, what can you to justice pay?
    Tremble, lest when life is past, into prison you be cast!

    Will you still increase the score? Still be careless, as before?
    O, forbid it, gracious Lord, touch their spirits by Thy Word!
    Now, in mercy, to them show what a mighty debt they owe!
    All their unbelief subdue, let them find forgiveness too.

    Spared to see another year, let Thy blessing meet us here;
    Come, Thy dying work revive, bid Thy drooping garden thrive:
    Sun of righteousness arise, warm our hearts, and bless our eyes;
    Let our prayer Thy heart move, make the next year a time of love!






    I am with you always.
    Matthew 28:20

    Moment by Moment

    Dying with Jesus, by death reckoned mine, living with Jesus, a new life divine;
    Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine, moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine.
    Moment by moment I’m kept in His love, moment by moment I’ve life from above;
    Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine, moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine.


    Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

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

    Praise the Lord!

    A pure river of water of life, clear as crystal,
    proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

    Revelation 22:1





    The River of Life

    O wonderful river! O life giving river!
    That flows thro’ the streets of the city above;
    The trees on thy margin, that blossom and quiver,
    Bring forth for the nations a fruitage of love.

    O throne of the Lamb, with its glory unspoken!
    O trees He hath planted for healing and rest!
    Shine on in our vision, and give us a token
    To comfort the heart that is sore and oppressed.

    We pine in the bondage that sin has thrown o’er us,
    We long for the joy and the freedom of home
    To join in the swell of the glorified chorus,
    To drink of the river that flows from the throne.

    Wonderful river! Wonderful river!
    Gladdening the plains where the ransomed abide:
    Flow onward forever, wonderful, wonderful river!
    Pure as thy source, which no darkness can hide!






    The exceeding riches of His grace.
    Ephesians 2:7

    The River of Thy Grace

    The river of Thy grace is flowing free, we launch upon its depths to sail to Thee;
    In the ocean of Thy love we soon shall be, we are sailing to eternity.
    Earthly joys cannot compare with all the glory, when our longing eyes shall see Thy face;
    We shall have Thy fellowship forever, in the splendor of the throne of grace.


    Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

    Praise the Lord!

    Sing to Him a new song; play skillfully with a shout of joy.
    Psalm 33:3
    Oh, sing to the LORD a new song! For He has done marvelous things.
    Psalm 98:1
    Sing to the LORD a new song, and His praise in the assembly of saints.
    Psalm 149:1





    O the New, New Song

    There are songs of joy that I loved to sing,
    When my heart was blithe as a bird in spring,
    But the song I have learned is so full of cheer,
    That the dawn shines out in the darkness drear.

    There are strains of home that are dear as life,
    And I list to them oft ’mid the din of strife;
    But I know of a home that is wondrous fair,
    And I sing the psalm they are singing there.

    Can my lips be mute, or my heart be sad,
    When the gracious Master hath made me glad?
    When He points where the many mansions be,
    And sweetly says, There is one for thee?

    I shall catch the gleam of its jasper wall
    When I come to the gloom of the even fall,
    For I know that the shadows, dreary and dim,
    Have a path of light that will lead to Him.

    O the new, new song! O the new, new song!
    I can sing it now with the ransomed throng:
    Power and dominion to Him that shall reign,
    Glory and praise to the Lamb that was slain.






    O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.
    Psalm 108:1
    To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
    1 Peter 5:11

    Singing Glory!

    I’ve something in my heart that Jesus gave to me,
    It makes me feel like singing glory all the day;
    He found my captive soul and gave me liberty,
    And now I feel like singing glory!
    He makes the path grow brighter ev’ry passing day;
    He makes the burden lighter all along the way;
    His Word is my delight, His will I now obey,
    And all the time I’m singing glory!



    Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

    Praise the Lord!

    I have set the LORD always before me;
    Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved.

    Psalm 16:8





    I Have Set the Lord

    I set Thy love between the world and me,
    O Lord, it cruelty, its wrong, its scorn;
    They cannot reach me through Thy tenderness
    That once for me their worst has known and borne.

    I set Thy cross between my sins and me,
    That so their shadow darken not my days,
    Nor rob my nights of rest, Thy blood blots out
    The long indictment from my shrinking gaze.

    I set Thy prayers between my doubts and me,
    That so my faith shall fail not, but abide,
    Though tried and tested sore; that shield shall serve
    All fiery darts to quench or turn aside.

    I set Thy strength between my foes and me,
    And walk, so guarded, panoplied and girt,
    Through dangers seen and unseen, unafraid;
    Through flames unscorched and raging waves unhurt.

    I set Thy thoughts between my thoughts and me,
    The calm, pure visions of Thy holy mind,
    Till nothing that disturbs me or defiles,
    Into my heart or soul can entrance find.

    I set Thy self between my self and me,
    And losing mine, Thy life abundant gain;
    Take Thy sufficiency for my deep need,
    And to Thy perfect stature so attain.






    The LORD has appeared of old to me, saying:
    “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love;
    Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.”

    Jeremiah 31:3

    “My Lord and my God!”
    John 20:28

    Now I Belong to Jesus

    Jesus, my Lord will love me forever,
    From Him no pow'r of evil can sever,
    He gave His life to ransom my soul;
    Now I belong to Him;
    Now I belong to Jesus,
    Jesus belongs to me,
    Not for the years of time alone,
    But for eternity.

    Praise the Lord!

    Who is this who comes from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah,
    This One who is glorious in His apparel, traveling in the greatness of His strength?
    “I who speak in righteousness, mighty to save.”

    Isaiah 63:1





    The Coming One

    Who is this that cometh in the starlit glow,
    As a newborn infant, to the manger low;
    While the shepherds wonder at the wondrous sight,
    While the angel chorus wakes the silent night?

    Who is this that cometh, this poor Nazarene,
    With His timely counsel, with His faultless mien;
    With His help and healing for the lame, the blind,
    For the poor, the needy, for the burdened mind?

    Who is this that cometh, spurning earthly gain,
    To the midnight garden, to the cross of pain;
    Cometh forth triumphant, from the sealed grave,
    Cometh in His beauty, in His might to save?

    ’Tis the Meek and Lowly, Just and Holy One;
    This is He that cometh God’s beloved Son:
    ’Tis the Meek and Lowly, Just and Holy One;
    This is He that cometh God’s beloved Son.






    Mighty to save.
    Isaiah 63:1

    The Saving Power

    On the earth, long ago, dwelt the Savior of men
    As a lowly and meek Nazarene;
    And His wonderful pow’r is the same now as then
    For He washed me and made me clean.
    Oh, the wondrous, marvelous saving power,
    Of the everlasting Prince, Savior, King;
    For He washed me in the flood of his precious,
    Saving blood, and forever His praise I’ll sing.



    Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

    Praise the Lord!
    And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria. So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city. Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife, who was with child. So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. Luke 2:1-7




    Christmas Eve - December 24th, 2014


    In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness.
    John 1:4-5

    Light Looked Down

    Light looked down and beheld Darkness.
    “There will I go,” said Light.
    Peace looked down and beheld War.
    “There will I go,” said Peace.
    Love looked down and saw Hatred.
    “There will I go,” said Love.
    Light came and did shine.
    Peace came and gave rest.
    Love came and brought Life.






    And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:
    “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”
    Luke 2:13-14

    Across the Templed Hills

    Now sweeps a song of solemn joy across the templed hills;
    From seraph harps sweet music floats, that earth and Heaven thrills.
    The tuneful notes still ring afar, like bells that gaily chime,
    Thro’ moonlit skies, from star to star, to hail the Christmas-time.
    We hear again the blissful the message breathed once more;
    All glory be to God! we cry, whose name our souls adore.
    Hark the song, glad song, overflowing all the earth!
    Hark the anthem sweet, bringing news of Jesus’ birth!



    Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!

    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!

    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;
    Sing the joyful tidings, oh, bear them far away.
    Sweetly sing the carol, the sweet carol today;
    Sing joyfully tidings, and bear them far away.

    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!
    Rich with blessings from above!

    Praise the Lord!

    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.



    Praise the Lord! Amen! and Amen!
