If you know where to get a good pho­to of Mack (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


Jesus is victor, Je­sus is King;
Let men and an­gels, praise to Him sing.
Hail ev­ery na­tion, hail all cre­ation,
Peace un­to earth and good will to men.


Radiance beam­ing, bright­ly gleam­ing,
Star of beau­ty won­drous­ly shin­ing,
Glory! glo­ry! beau­ti­ful story,
Watching shep­herds heard so long ago.

Bright was the morn­ing when o’er the earth,
Music pro­claim­ing, told of His birth;
Wondrous the sto­ry, tell­ing His glo­ry,
Jesus the Son un­to men has come.


Monarch of ag­es, Rul­er of all;
Victor for mank­ind lost in the fall.
Now with obla­tion, glad ado­ra­tion,
Jesus our Lord, is the name adored.
