#45 • Vision Week, July 2016 • Excerpt 15 • “The Olive Oil for the Lampstand” (2)

In this program we are continuing to feature excerpts from this past summer’s Vision Week in Cleveland, Ohio, which focused on the lampstand described in Exodus 25 as it portrays our spiritual growth.

In this message, Brother Titus considers further the spiritual significance of the olive oil that was burned in the lamp (Exo. 27:20). In particular, he reminds us of how the Mount of Olives was related both to the Lord’s death, and to His ascension.

In this program, Brother Titus asks the saints to sing a hymn, as a reminder of how the Lord and His disciples sang a hymn on their way to the Mount of Olives.  The text of the hymn called by Brother Titus is below.

Father, to Thee a Joyful Song We Raise

Father, to Thee a joyful song we raise
With all Thine own;
And in Thy presence sound a note of praise
To Thee alone;
Bro’t nigh, bro’t home to Thee—O wondrous grace,
That gives us now with Thine own Son our place.

How deep the holy joy that fills that scene,
Where love is known!
Thy love, our God and Father, now is seen,
In Him alone;
As, in the holy calm of Thine own rest,
He leads the praise of those Thy love has blessed.
He leads the praise! How precious to Thine ear
The song He sings!
How precious, too, to Thee—how near, how dear
Are those He brings
To share His place: ’twas thus that Thou didst plan;
Thou lovedst Him before the world began.
