If you know the au­thor, or where to get a good pho­to of him or Tay­lor,


O Lord, all glo­ri­ous, Life of life!
To Thee we raise our grate­ful song;
Lift up our souls from thoughts of self
To Thee, to whom all lives be­long.

Below all depths Thy mer­cy lies,
Above all heights Thy love as­cends;
Thy pro­vi­dence our path sur­rounds,
Thy watch­ful care each step at­tends.

From Thee all good de­sires pro­ceed,
All ho­ly thoughts we gain from Thee;
The good we do is Thine alone,
Thine shall our heart’s thanks­giv­ing be.
