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

Miss Grace Em­ma Euh­ler, of Bal­ti­more, writes that the lines were prompt­ed by a deep sense of my own need and the all-suf­fi­cie­ncy of the great Gift, which ex­pressed it­self in the se­cond verse, and then the oth­er two vers­es grouped them­selves around it.

Lyrics

O Gift of God, we praise Thee,
That ever Thou didst come
To guide our wayward footsteps
Back to the Father’s home.

O Gift of God, we take Thee
To be our All in All;
We know Thou art sufficient
Whatever may befall.

O Gift of God, we give Thee
Ourselves, Thine own to be;
Accept us, save and keep us
Throughout eternity.
