If you know when this hymn was writ­ten, or where to get a good pho­to of Skemp (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


I love to think that Je­sus saw
The same bright sun that shines today;
It gave Him light to do His work,
And smiled up­on His play.

The same white moon with sil­ver face
That sails across the sky at night,
He used to see in Ga­li­lee,
And watch it with de­light.

The same great God that hears my pray­ers
Heard His, when Je­sus knelt to pray;
He is my Fa­ther, who will keep
His child through ev­ery day.
