If you know where to get a good pho­to of Keyes or Brack­ett (head-and-shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


God is the life, the truth, the way
Which leads unto the perfect day,
The way which mortals should adore,
If they would reach the unseen shore.

Come to this fount which flows for all,
Come, and accept the gracious call;
Jesus, who came the way to show,
Has said that all the way may know.

Press forward to the Horeb height,
Look up and thou shalt see the light;
Acquaint thyself at once with love,
And truth shall guide to light above.
