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


Jesus, gentle Sav­ior,
Loving children small,
In Thy tender mercy
Hear us when we call.

We would be, dear Sav­ior,
More like Thee each day;
Keep our feet from straying,
Lead us in Thy way.

May we be to others
Gentle, true and kind,
Helping other children
Our dear Lord to find.

In whate’er we’re doing,
May we be like Thee;
Then at last, dear Sav­ior,
We Thy face shall see.
