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


Lord, dis­miss us with Thy bless­ing;
Bid us now de­part in peace;
Still on heav’n­ly man­na feed­ing,
Let our faith and love in­crease.

Fill each heart with con­so­la­tion;
Up to Thee our hearts we raise;
When we reach our bliss­ful sta­tion,
Then we’ll give Thee nob­ler praise.
