If you know where to get a good pho­to of Shaw (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els), or a bet­ter one of Black,


All the day my heart is sing­ing,
Not a throb of care I know,
For the Mas­ter’s feet have trod­den
Every path He bids me go.


In the Lord is all my joy,
Blessèd Sav­ior, friend di­vine!
Glad the songs my heart has known,
Since this Je­sus has been mine.

Thro’ the night my heart keeps sing­ing,
Sheltered in His sec­ret place,
Midnight is as bright as noon­day,
By the glo­ry of His face.


When I reach that land of pro­mise,
Sweeter strains my lips shall frame,
But the theme will still be Je­sus,
Glory! glo­ry! to His name!
