If you know where to get a good pho­to of Ar­rick or Mc­Ew­an (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


One by one we’re pass­ing over,
One by one we cross the tide;
Soon we’ll reach the peace­ful har­bor,
Rest at last on Ca­naan’s side.


Rest at last, when earth is past,
Rest at last on Ca­naan’s shore;
Rest at last, when earth is past,
With our loved ones gone be­fore.

There in that bright land of beau­ty,
With the loved ones gone be­fore,
We will meet in blest re­un­ion,
Meet again to part no more.


Then dis­pel! thou dark­en­ing sha­dow!
Shine up­on us, light above!
Take away the sting of part­ing,
Bring us soon to those we love.


But if we must wait and suf­fer,
Ease the hurt, and soothe the pain;
Make us know that in the day­break
We shall see our loved again.
