Praise The Lord

Praise Him when the sun is shining,
    When the winds of trouble blow,
When you see no silver lining
    On the clouds that hand so low.

Praise illumines clouds of sorrow,
    Turns the gray skies into gold
Giving promise of a morrow
    Bright with blessings manifold.

Praise Him when your load is heavy
    And the day no comfort brings,
Then your burden God will cary,
    Bear yo as on eagle's wings.

God delights to have us praise Him.
    And believe His Holy Word;
And He knoweth them that trust Him,
    For they always praise the Lord.

LIft Up Your Hearts!

We thank Thee, Lord for all Thy love,
For countless blessings from above;
From north tosound, from east to west,
Thy glories shine, and man is blest.

In every zone, in every clime,
We hear Thy praise, its happy chime;
For sun and moon and radiant stars,
And all the glory night unbars.

For every flower that decks the way,
For all the birds with songs so gay,
For smiles upon each human face,
For all Thy wondrous love and grace.

Lift up your heart, lift up your voice,
Give thanks to God, rejoice, rejoice!
Into His courts we'll make our way,
And parise him each and every day!

Family Alter Fragrance

How far the holy fragrance of
    The family alter goes!
When childhood days are far behind
    The beauty of it glows.

Though some things to my memory
    Are indistinct and blurred,
I still can hear my father's voice
    Expound the Holy Word.

I did not heed its counsel then,
    Nor did realize its worth,

But now I know that shrine to be
    The sweetest place on earth.

It proved a shield to keep my faith
    Undimmed through joy and care;
The mem'ry of that hallowed place
    My father's voice in prayer.

The "U" in Jesus

Before U were thought of or time had begun,
God even stuck U in the name of His Son.
And each time U pray, you'll see it's true
You can't spell out JesUs and not include U.

You're a pretty big part of His wonderful name,
For U, He was born, that's why He came.
And His great love for U is the reason He died.
It even takes U to spell crUcified.

Isn't it thrilling and splendidly grand
He rose from the dead, with U in His plan.
The stones split away, the gold trUmpet blew,
And this word resUrrection is spelled with a U.

When JesUs left earth at His upward ascension,
He felt there was one thing He just had to mention.
"Go into the world and tell them it's true
That I love them all - Just like I love U."

So many great people are spelled with a U.
Don't they have a right to know JesUs too?
It all depends now on what U will do,

He'd like them to know
But it all starts with U.

Where The Bullet Stops

   A lieutenant in the United States Army on some far-off battle front and his buddy were sent on an important mission. When the enemy discovered them the lieutenant faced them, saying to himself, "Lord, it's your responsibility now." As he reached for his carbine, a shot from one of them struck him in the breast and blasted him down. Thinking he was dead, his pal grabbed his carbine and blasted away with both guns. He received three bullet wounds, but when he finished not one of the enemy was left. The lieutenant wrote his sister in Pennsylvania: "He was amazed when I rolled over and tried to get up. The force of that bullet had only stunned me. Dazedly, wondering why, I pulled my Bible out of my pocket and in utter muteness looked at the ugly hole in the cover. It had ripped through Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and kept going. Where do you think it stopped? In the middle of the Ninety-first Psalm, pointing like a finger at this verse, 'A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.' I did not know such a verse was in the Bible.... In utter humility I said, 'Thank You, Precious God.'
