Welcome To August!




From The Truth Media family,
Happy New Month!!!

I’ve seen the ways of the humble and just,
How they March through grace to August;
Though sometimes are weary but never weak,
They in the Lord abide and remain meek.

When trials fester and persecutors pester,
They stand resolute and bold as Esther,
Confidence reposed in the King of kings,
Knowing that triumph is what He gladly brings.

Let this mind be in you this August
And not to delight in contention or lust;
Sow for yourself righteousness
And reap the fruit of love and God’s goodness.

Another month, another blessing,
Another month of progressing.
Welcome to August!

Welcome To July!




From The Truth Media family,
Happy New Month!!!

A heart in pain, a soul with strain,
Though days before that bred July
Is fraught with loss and weighty lack,
Be grateful still, the Lord will supply.

Your nights be full of fears and groans,
So hard the tides, you wonder why;
And though despair defeats your smiles,
Be hopeful still, the Lord will supply.

The Lord will supply,
Even in July;
The poor man called, He answered him;
No shame befalls who trusts in Him.

Bestir your faith, wait on the Lord;
Trust in His word, delight in July;
Though folks around denigrate you,
Be faithful still, the Lord will supply.

Welcome To June!




From The Truth Media family,
Happy New Month!!!

Not of your prudence or your strength,
Nor of how brave you think you are,
Not of your wealth and tactfulness
Have you lived to come this far

But for the mercies of the Lord,
His ‘YES’ to prayers when we call;
And should you seek to brag of self
That you’ve had and seen it all,

Remember, swift it is to drown
For one who choose to wear the crown:
The crown of pride and vanity;
It only brings calamity.

So take this time to praise the Lord,
Worship and praise His holy name;
Remember, June is half the mile,
Don’t stop to make Jesus your aim.

My House Is Full But My Field Is Empty




There is peace and contentment in my Father’s house today,
Lots of food on His table and no one is turned away,
There is singing and laughter as the hours pass by
But a hush calms the singing as the Father sadly cries:

My house is full, but my field is empty,
Who shall go and work for me today?
It seems my children all want to stay around my table
But no one wants to work in my field,
No one wants to work in my field

Push away from the table, look out through the windowpane,
Just beyond this house of plenty lies a field of golden grain
And it’s ripened unto harvest but the reapers, where are they?
In the house, oh, can't the children hear the Father sadly say:

My house is full, but my field is empty,
Who shall go and work for me today?
It seems my children all want to stay around my table
But no one wants to work in my field,
No one wants to work in my field

Souls are crying,
Men are dying,
Won’t you lead them to the cross?
Go and find them,
Help to win them,
Win the lost at any cost
But no one wants to work in my field,
No one wants to work in my field.

Welcome To May!




From The Truth Media family,
Happy New Month!!!

All your worries, all your pains,
The Lord has promised they won't stay;
He knows the height you wish to gain,
He feels your woes of yesterday,

He understands your every fear,
He sees them all: your sighs and tears
And only asks you trust, obey
His Word today and everyday;

To daily walk with Him by faith,
To simply trusting everyday.
At you the world has mocked and called a wraith,
Just keep on trusting everyday.

As you enter this month of May,
Please don't relent to watch and pray,
And miracles only shall you see
In all your ways in Jesus' name. Amen.

The Cross



Text: John 3:15-16; Isaiah 53; Romans 4:24-25; 1 Peter 3:18


In evil long I took delight,
Unawed by shame or fear,
Till a new object struck my sight,
And stopped my wild career.

I saw One hanging on a tree,
In agonies and blood;
He fixed His languid eyes on me,
As near His cross I stood.

Sure never till my latest breath,
 Shall I forget that look!
It seemed to charge me with His death,
Though not a word He spoke.

A second look He gave, which said,
 "I freely all forgive;
This blood is for thy ransom paid;
I die that thou mayest live."

Thus while His death my sin displays
 In all its blackest hue,
Such is the mystery of grace,
It seals my pardon too!

Blest, Blest Forever




Only a little while, sowing and reaping,
Only a little while, our vigil keeping;
Then we shall gather home, no more to sever,
Clasped in eternal love, blest, blest forever.

Only a little while, heartbreak and sorrow,
Dark though the night may be, cloudless the morrow;
Only a little while, Earth ties to sever,
Then in our Father land, blest, blest forever.

Only a little while, shadow and sadness,
Then in eternity sunshine and gladness;
Only a little while, then o'er the river,
Home, rest and victor palm, life, joy forever.

Now That The End of Man Is At Hand



Text: 1 Peter 4:7-10


In these days of mischief, loss and lust,
Of mores and trust buried in dust,
Of lies and pride that satiate dodgy head,
Guard with diligence thy heart till the very end.

Let thine eyes see no evil,
Its fruits resist, shun the devil;
Order thy steps in paths of peace and light,
Abide in the truth, thy thoughts make right.

Such fate befell perverse ones before you:
A life of woes and worries all through;
That thy ‘morrow may be good in every way,
Take time to be holy, take time to pray.

Desire not the noxious wine of violence,
Watch thy soul lest it breeds pretense;
Now that the end of man is at hand,
It’s time to seek the Lord and for righteousness stand.

Arise, O ye Christians! Behold your Saviour and Lord,
Love not the world or the riches it can afford;
Sinners will entice, consent not,
For yielding is death; recall the wife of Lot?

Another Year Is Dawning




Another year is dawning, dear Father, let it be
In working or in waiting, another year with Thee.
Another year of progress, another year of praise,
Another year of proving Thy presence all the days.

Another year of mercies, of faithfulness and grace,
Another year of gladness in the shining of Thy face;
Another year of leaning upon Thy loving breast;
Another year of trusting, of quiet, happy rest.

Another year of service, of witness for Thy love,
Another year of training for holier work above.
Another year is dawning, dear Father, let it be
On earth, or else in Heaven, another year for Thee.

Take The Junk In My Trunk




Jesus, Please Take the “Junk In My Trunk.”

In my life, I allowed a lot of “junk in the trunk.”
There was so much that my life stunk!
There were many things I collected along the way,
They just seemed to hang around me every day.

Some of the junk were old and some were new,
I was at a loss as to what I was going to do.
As my life began to take a downward turn…
This was the moment I became concerned.

I came to the decision; “this junk has to go!”
My life needed to be cleansed and made whole!
I know my life was burdened and “bottomed out”,
I needed to be cleansed from the inside out!

I cried out to Jesus; “please take the junk of mine”,
“It’s ruining my life and destroying my mind!”
Jesus reached out and did a beautiful work within;
By His power He removed all of my junk and sin!

Praise the Lord! He began a beautiful work in me!
The load of junk is gone! I've been set free!
He can do the same for you! Won’t you let Him?
Won’t you give him your life and simply trust Him?

You too can be forever changed by His power;
He can remove all of your junk this very hour!

The Fear Of The Lord



The fear of the Lord

Text: Proverbs 19:23; 9:10

My fear of Thee, O Lord, exults
Like life within my veins,
A fear which tightly claims to be
One of love's sacred pains.


There is no joy the soul can meet
Upon life's various road
Like the sweet fear that sits and shrinks
Under the eye of God.


Oh, Thou art greatly to be feared,
Thou art so prompt to bless!
The dread to miss such love as Thine
Makes fear but love's excess.


But fear is love, and love is fear,
And in and out they move;
But fear is an intenser joy
Than mere unfrightened love.


They love Thee little, if at all,
Who do not fear Thee much;
If love is Thine attraction, Lord!
Fear is Thy very touch.

Welcome To March: Adulation



Adulation

Text: Psalm 150:6; 34:3; 107:1; Micah 6:8

Happy New Month!!!

When the glory of the Lord,
The immeasurable grace of Adonai
Rest upon a man; he is as the radiant sun
Stretched in its might across the sky

Not an iota of fear,
Not the burden of sadness,
Not the shame of sinful past
Can rob his heart of true gladness

As free as a bird,
Strong and full of life;
As cheery as a child,
He’s whole and knows no strife

For Christ has paid the prize;
One who knew death at the Cross.
Jesus has died for you and I
And in Him is victory over grief and loss

Blessed be the name of the Lord
For He’s good and His mercy endures forever;
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Who reigns in majesty now and forever.

Christian Poem: Saying Goodbye



Saying goodbye | The Truth Media

When my life as a pilgrim ends
I will say goodbye to my friends;
But though we must part for a while,
There is a reason for a smile.

Because our hope is in the Lord
And not what the world can afford,
The joys of heaven we will share
With the saints of all ages there.

We will walk upon streets of gold
Where there is beauty that's untold
And have a wondrous dwelling place
With Him Who saved us by His grace!

Wisdom



Text: Proverbs 4:7, 9:10; Ecclesiastes 12:1-8; Zephaniah 2:3


If age doth speak of wisdom learned,
And battles won, and sorrows earned,
Then youth doth boast of hopes to come,
Of strength to waste, and wisdom shunned.

But if youth could seek instead the wise,
and see life through more vintage eyes
And turn to God while still they sow
The seeds of harvest they've yet to know,

They might then be blessed to reap
A bounty they'll delight to keep,
And share with those who come behind
A harvest of a richer kind.

Welcome To December: It's End Of Year



Text: 1 John 3:17; Hebrews 13:16; Proverbs 21:13

“Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others” (Philippians 2:4)


From The Truth Media family,
Happy New Month!!!

If the dead had known their end
Would cave in fast, unexpected;
If they had known the things they dread
Would quash their fate unsuspected

The strive to have it all at once,
To rule the world and amass wealth
Would they abhor and left for dunce
To hound around against their health.

To care and share with warmth in heart
Prolongs the soul that holds not back;
The ones who reach out to impart,
They never beg; they never lack.

If the sun had lost its virtue
Who would help the lilies bloom?
If life only was meant for you,
Not a flower will greet your tomb.

So, spread some cheer,
It’s not a crime;
It’s end of year,
It’s Christmas time.

No Scar




Hast thou no scar?
No hidden scar on foot, or side, or hand?
I hear thee sung as mighty in the land,
I hear them hail thy bright ascendant star,
Hast thou no scar?

Hast thou no wound?
Yet I was wounded by the archers, spent,
Leaned Me against a tree to die; and rent
By ravening beasts that compassed Me, I swooned:
Hast thou no wound?

No wound, no scar?
Yet, as the Master shall the servant be,
And, pierced are the feet that follow Me;
But thine are whole: can he have followed far
Who has no wound nor scar?

Did He Hang For Me?



Text: Rev. 2:11, John 8:36; Deuteronomy 30:19


So you say He hung on the tree,
That I might be set free?
But I was never shackled.
I walked free, speak unheckled

The one that is in chains knows not,
Still a slave, though his freedom’s bought

So you say He willingly bled,
That I might not to hell be led?
Was it I that paved the path to hell
Or designed its flaming cells?

Before all is life and death to choose
Choose hell and heaven you lose

So you say He bore my sins?
Enough! You paint such torrid scenes!
But He died thousands of years ago!
Yet, this death, you link to me?

His blameless blood was split that the lost
Be redeemed. He alone could pay the cost

Ah, did He die for me on that cross?
Did He bleed to save me, save us
From unseen fetters of sin;
Tethers that eyes have not seen?

He that has ears let him hear,
For the day of reckoning is near!

From The Dust To The Throne



Text: Mark 1:34; Psalm 103:2-3; 40:2; 145:14


He lifts up the poor, from the dust to the throne
He gathers the needy, and calls them his own
He heals the sick, and makes the dumb speak
He lifts up the shabby, and makes him a king

From poverty to riches, from the muds to a gold
From a scrap to a diamond, of values untold
From a commoner, to the palace, forever to sing
He lifts up the shabby, and makes him a king

From rejection to celebration, from nothing to something
From tears to cheers, of joys unspeakable
From pains to gains, as the blessed comes rejoicing
He lifts up the shabby, and makes him a king

From bondage to freedom, from darkness to light
He takes away all sorrows, all worries and strife
A husband to widows, to sinners a friend
He lifts up the shabby, and makes him a king

He cleanses our hearts, from all the filths of sin
And makes it pure, whiter than snow
From a polluted mortal, without and within
He lifts up the shabby, and makes him a king

He gives us a hope, for a Kingdom of light
The abode of the Father, spirit and the son
Blessed trinity, the three who lives as one
He lifts up the shabby, and makes him a king

He lifts up the poor, from the dust to the throne
He gathers the needy, and calls them his own
He heals the sick, and makes the dumb speak
He lifts up the shabby, and makes him a king
