If you know where to get a good photo of Sanford (head-and-shoulders, at least 200×300 pixels), would you ?
How kind is my heavenly Father!
He touches my heart every day
With sweetness of love He has for me,
A love I can never repay.
A stream of the heavenly water
Goes singing along by my door;
I fill there my cup every morning—
At evening I linger for more.
I never shall weary of living
While that stream runs close to my door,
And sings of the far away fountains
Of love that my Lord has in store.
