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


The little ones, tho’ very young,
May learn the story precious;
And evermore may stand among
The friends who worship Jesus.


Then, little girls and little boys,
Come in for loving greeting;
O come and share our Sabbath joys,
The Bible truths repeating.

The little ones may sunshine bring
To many hearts aweary;
Like little birds upon the wing
Light up the pathways dreary.


The little ones may please the Lord
By using best endeavor,
To win their mates by deed and word
To love and serve Him ever.
