If you know where to get a good photo of Binkley or Prothero (head-and-shoulders, at least 200×300 pixels), would you ?
I thank Thee, Father, that I live
To see this day of Thine;
This day of rest, this day of peace,
Proclaims Thy love divine.
Today, I thank thee, most of all,
For Thy best gift of love;
The gift of Christ, whose saving grace
We all, today, may prove.
And when the evening shades of life
Bring slumber and repose,
Oh, may I see Thee face to face,
Where Sabbaths never close!
