We Will Glorify

Holy, Holy, Holy!

Praise His holy name!

I Sing The Mighty Power of God

Take Time To Be Holy

Take time to be holy, speak oft with thy Lord;
Abide in Him always, and feed on His Word.
Make friends of God’s children, help those who are weak,
Forgetting in nothing His blessing to seek.

Take time to be holy, the world rushes on;
Spend much time in secret, with Jesus alone.
By looking to Jesus, like Him thou shalt be;
Thy friends in thy conduct His likeness shall see.

Take time to be holy, let Him be thy Guide;
And run not before Him, whatever betide.
In joy or in sorrow, still follow the Lord,
And, looking to Jesus, still trust in His Word.

Take time to be holy, be calm in thy soul,
Each thought and each motive beneath His control.
Thus led by His Spirit to fountains of love,
Thou soon shalt be fitted for service above.

Lord of Glory, We Adore Thee!

1 LORD of glory, we adore Thee,
Christ of God, ascended high;
Heart and soul we bow before Thee,
Glorious now beyond the sky;
Thee we worship,
Thee we praise,
Excellent in all Thy ways.

2 Mighty King, with glory crowned,
Rightful Heir and Lord of all:
Once rejected, scorned, disowned,
E’en by those Thou cam’st to call:
Thee we honour,
Thee adore,
Glorious now and evermore.

3 Lord of life, to death made subject,
Blesser, yet a curse once made;
Of Thy Father’s heart the object,
Yet in depths of anguish laid:
Thee we gaze on,
Thee recall,
Bearing here our sorrows all.

4 Royal robes shall soon invest Thee,
Royal splendours crown Thy brow;
Christ of God, our souls confess Thee
King and Sovereign even now;
Thee we reverence,
Thee obey,
Own Thee Lord and Christ alway.

Memorial Day

I didn’t say anything on Memorial Day but I want to wish every one of our troops that are serving now, that have served in the past and that will be serving in the future the very best.

The Desert Pastor did a very good article on his blog. I hope you will visit his blog and read his tribute to our troops. Thank you, men and women, for your dedication to our country and the freedom that we enjoy still (what’s left of it)! We know that freedom of any kind comes at a very high price.

I also want to thank each and every Christian soldier that takes a stand on the truth and purity of God’s Word. Let nothing stand in your way of proclaiming truth! Truth is no longer truth if even a little bit of error is mixed in it. A half-truth is the same thing as a whole lie! Let’s be willing to speak forth God’s truth regardless of the cost! Eternity is ahead of us, true believers in the Lord, and whether we live or we die we are the Lord’s. May God keep us faithful to His Word so we will not be ashamed at His coming!

Who is on the Lord’s side? Who will serve the King?
Who will be His helpers, other lives to bring?
Who will leave the world’s side? Who will face the foe?
Who is on the Lord’s side? Who for Him will go?
By Thy call of mercy, by Thy grace divine,
We are on the Lord’s side—Savior, we are Thine!

Not for weight of glory, nor for crown and palm,
Enter we the army, raise the warrior psalm;
But for love that claimeth lives for whom He died:
He whom Jesus nameth must be on His side.
By Thy love constraining, by Thy grace divine,
We are on the Lord’s side—Savior, we are Thine!

Jesus, Thou hast bought us, not with gold or gem,
But with Thine own life blood, for Thy diadem;
With Thy blessing filling each who comes to Thee,
Thou hast made us willing, Thou hast made us free.
By Thy grand redemption, by Thy grace divine,
We are on the Lord’s side—Savior, we are Thine!

Fierce may be the conflict, strong may be the foe,
But the King’s own army none can overthrow;
’Round His standard ranging, victory is secure,
For His truth unchanging makes the triumph sure.
Joyfully enlisting, by Thy grace divine,
We are on the Lord’s side—Savior, we are Thine!

Chosen to be soldiers, in an alien land,
Chosen, called, and faithful, for our Captain’s band,
In the service royal, let us not grow cold;
Let us be right loyal, noble, true and bold.
Master, Thou wilt keep us, by Thy grace divine,
Always on the Lord’s side—Savior, always Thine!

Hallelujah! What a Saviour

Have you ever heard the saying, “Go ahead and take it, it’s free!” Of course, the other saying that goes with it goes something like this, “Nothin’ in life is free!” There are two sides to this because when someone offers you something then it is free to you because it’s a gift; however, it cost the giver something so it wasn’t free originally!

I think we tend to forget that when the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross He paid the price for true believers to become His children. Once someone has accepted the Lord into their hearts it is their responsibility to take up their cross and follow Him! I like to remember, through this song, that our Lord Jesus Christ paid the ultimate sacrifice; therefore, it is my delight, my responsibility, my privilege to serve Him in every area of life! Thank You, Lord, for Your sacrifice!

Man of Sorrows! what a name
For the Son of God, who came
Ruined sinners to reclaim.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Bearing shame and scoffing rude,
In my place condemned He stood;
Sealed my pardon with His blood.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Guilty, vile, and helpless we;
Spotless Lamb of God was He;
“Full atonement!” can it be?
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Lifted up was He to die;
“It is finished!” was His cry;
Now in Heav’n exalted high.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

When He comes, our glorious King,
All His ransomed home to bring,
Then anew His song we’ll sing:
Hallelujah! What a Savior!
