    There’s a sacred and hallowed retreat,
    Where my soul finds a fellowship sweet,
    Where the Lord of my life I may meet,
    In the garden of my heart.

    In the cool of the day He walks with me,
    In the rose bordered way He talks with me;
    In love’s holy union,
    And sacred communion,
    In the garden of my heart.


    There is naught can disturb or molest,
    There my spirit finds comfort and rest,
    And my soul is no longer distressed
    In the garden of my heart.

    Shut away from earth’s strife and its din,
    And protected from soul staining sin,
    For my Savior is dwelling within,
    In the garden of my heart.

    There the dove of sweet peace always sings,
    And my faith ever trustingly clings;
    And the chime of sweet happiness rings
    In the garden of my heart.

    If you will only let God guide you,
    And hope in Him through all your ways,
    Whatever comes, He’ll stand beside you,
    To bear you through the evil days;
    Who trusts in God’s unchanging love
    Builds on the Rock that cannot move.

    Only be still, and wait His leisure
    In cheerful hope, with heart content
    To take whatever the Father’s pleasure
    And all discerning love have sent;
    Nor doubt our inmost wants are known
    To Him Who chose us for His own.

    Sing, pray, and swerve not from His ways,
    But do your part in conscience true;
    Trust His rich promises of grace,
    So shall they be fulfilled in you;
    God hears the call of those in need,
    The souls that trust in Him indeed.

    For the beauty of the earth
    For the glory of the skies,
    For the love which from our birth
    Over and around us lies.

    Lord of all, to Thee we raise,
    This our hymn of grateful praise
    .

    For the beauty of each hour,
    Of the day and of the night,
    Hill and vale, and tree and flower,
    Sun and moon, and stars of light.

    For the joy of ear and eye,
    For the heart and mind’s delight,
    For the mystic harmony
    Linking sense to sound and sight.

    For the joy of human love,
    Brother, sister, parent, child,
    Friends on earth and friends above,
    For all gentle thoughts and mild.

    For Thy Church, that evermore
    Lifteth holy hands above,
    Offering up on every shore
    Her pure sacrifice of love.

    For the martyrs’ crown of light,
    For Thy prophets’ eagle eye,
    For Thy bold confessors’ might,
    For the lips of infancy.

    For Thy virgins’ robes of snow,
    For Thy maiden mother mild,
    For Thyself, with hearts aglow,
    Jesu, Victim undefiled.

    For each perfect gift of Thine,
    To our race so freely given,
    Graces human and divine,
    Flowers of earth and buds of Heaven.

    The Lord’s my Shepherd, I’ll not want.
    He makes me down to lie
    In pastures green; He leadeth me
    The quiet waters by.

    My soul He doth restore again;
    And me to walk doth make
    Within the paths of righteousness,
    Even for His own Name’s sake.

    Yea, though I walk in death’s dark vale,
    Yet will I fear no ill;
    For Thou art with me; and Thy rod
    And staff my comfort still.

    My table Thou hast furnishèd
    In presence of my foes;
    My head Thou dost with oil anoint,
    And my cup overflows.

    Goodness and mercy all my life
    Shall surely follow me;
    And in God’s house forevermore
    My dwelling place shall be.

    Precious Lord, take my hand,
    Lead me on, let me stand,
    I am tired, I am weak, I am worn;
    Through the storm, through the night,
    Lead me on to the light:

    Take my hand, precious Lord,
    Lead me home.


    When my way grows drear,
    Precious Lord, linger near,
    When my life is almost gone,
    Hear my cry, hear my call,
    Hold my hand lest I fall:

    When the darkness appears
    And the night draws near,
    And the day is past and gone,
    At the river I stand,
    Guide my feet, hold my hand:

    I ask everyone to pray for the men and women in Washington tonight.
    Pray the good Lord gives them strength. Strength to do what is right for Americas people. Not for money, Not for personal gain, but for what is right for America.



    Ask what thou wilt, believing heart,
    The answering time will come;
    Pray and believe—that is thy part,
    The answering time will come.

    The answering time will come;
    The answering time will come.
    Tho’ dark the way, still trust and pray,
    The answering time will come.


    Ask in the name of Christ thy Lord,
    The answering time will come;
    Rest on the promise of His Word,
    The answering time will come.

    God’s Word is sure; it cannot fail,
    The answering time will come;
    The prayer of faith shall yet prevail,
    The answering time will come.

    God will not mock believing prayer,
    The answering time will come;
    He knows the burden thou dost bear,
    The answering time will come.

    amen

    [i][b][size=150][color=orange]I asked the Lord that I might grow
    In faith, and love, and every grace;
    Might more of His salvation know,
    And seek, more earnestly, His face.

    ’Twas He who taught me thus to pray,
    And He, I trust, has answered prayer!
    But it has been in such a way,
    As almost drove me to despair.

    I hoped that in some favored hour,
    At once He’d answer my request;
    And by His love’s constraining pow’r,
    Subdue my sins, and give me rest.

    Instead of this, He made me feel
    The hidden evils of my heart;
    And let the angry pow’rs of hell
    Assault my soul in every part.

    Yea more, with His own hand He seemed
    Intent to aggravate my woe;
    Crossed all the fair designs I schemed,
    Blasted my gourds, and laid me low.

    Lord, why is this, I trembling cried,
    Wilt thou pursue thy worm to death?
    “’Tis in this way, the Lord replied,
    I answer prayer for grace and faith.

    These inward trials I employ,
    From self, and pride, to set thee free;
    And break thy schemes of earthly joy,
    That thou may’st find thy all in Me.

    [color=darkblue][size=150]Lord Jesus, I long to be perfectly whole;
    I want Thee forever to live in my soul.
    Break down every idol, cast out every foe;
    Now wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

    Whiter than snow, yes, whiter than snow.
    Now wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.


    Lord Jesus, let nothing unholy remain,
    Apply Thine own blood and extract ev’ry stain;
    To get this blest cleansing, I all things forego—
    Now wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

    Lord Jesus, look down from Thy throne in the skies,
    And help me to make a complete sacrifice.
    I give up myself, and whatever I know,
    Now wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

    Lord Jesus, for this I most humbly entreat,
    I wait, blessèd Lord, at Thy crucified feet.
    By faith, for my cleansing, I see Thy blood flow,
    Now wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

    Lord Jesus, Thou seest I patiently wait,
    Come now, and within me a new heart create;
    To those who have sought Thee, Thou never saidst “No,

    Folks can we send up some Special prayers today for our moderator, and researcher, JAK (Judy).
    She is undergoing heart surgery.
    Let us pray now for her safe and speedy return to us.
    We Love Ya Judy, we will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.




    Now let us come before Him,
    With song and prayer adore Him,
    Who to our life hath given
    All needed strength from Heaven.

    The stream of years is flowing,
    And we are onward going,
    From old to new surviving
    And by His mercy thriving.

    In woe we often languish
    And pass through times of anguish
    Of wars and trepidation
    Alarming every nation.

    As mothers watch are keeping
    O’er children who are sleeping,
    Their fear and grief assuaging
    When angry storms are waging.

    So God His own is shielding
    And help to them is yielding.
    When need and woe distress them,
    His loving arms caress them.

    O Thou Who dost not slumber,
    Remove what would encumber
    Our work, which prospers never
    Unless Thou bless it ever.

    O God of mercy, hear us;
    Our Father, be Thou near us;
    Mid crosses and in sadness
    Be Thou our Fount of gladness.

    To all who bow before Thee
    And for Thy grace implore Thee,
    Oh, grant Thy benediction
    And patience in affliction.

    Be Thou a Helper speedy
    To all the poor and needy,
    To all forlorn a Father;
    Thine erring children gather.

    Be with the sick and ailing,
    Their Comforter unfailing;
    Dispelling grief and sadness,
    Oh, give them joy and gladness!

    Above all else, Lord, send us
    Thy Spirit to attend us,
    Within our hearts abiding,
    To Heav’n our footsteps guiding.

    All this Thy hand bestoweth,
    Thou Life, whence our life floweth.
    To all Thy Name confessing
    Grant, Lord, Thy New Year’s blessing!

    Do you see in the distance yonder,
    That line drawn up in array?
    ’Tis the host of the Loyal Leaguers,
    Come forth to the conquest day.
    They follow the bloodstained banner,
    And the path that their Master trod,
    For their sign is the cross of Calv’ry,
    And their sword is the Word of God.


    Victory, we’ll sing of victory,
    For Christ hath promised us the victory;
    Victory, we’ll sing of victory,
    Faith brings the victory.


    They are marching away to conquest
    That shall never know a defeat,
    For the Christ hath assured all vict’ry
    Who are faithful and scorn retreat.
    Then join this advancing army,
    And look to the throne above,
    Lift the form of thy fallen brother,
    And point to the God of love.
