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


The Lord love thee and keep thee
Upon the land and sea;
And cause His face in every place
To shine divine on thee.

The Lord bless thee and rest thee,
Where’er thy journeys be;
And never cease to give His peace
By day and night to thee.

The Lord guide thee and bring thee
To where the home shores be;
And every hour in joyous power
His blessings lay on thee.
