If you know where to get a good pho­to of Beat­tie (head-and-shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els), would you ?


We are little heralds,
Marching thro’ the land,
Bearing joyful tidings,
At our king’s command.


Join with ours your voices—
Let earth’s kingdoms ring,
Loud with endless praises,
Unto Christ our king.

Jesus is our watchword,
As we onward go;
With His banner o’er us,
We will fear no foe.


He is ever faithful,
Good and kind and true;
And He watches o’er us,
Whatsoe’er we do.


Joined in love together,
Hearts made pure and free;
In this world of darkness,
Joyful lights we’ll be.
