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


I thank Thee, Lord, that I can cast
My bur­dens all on Thee;
Tho’ I be tempt­ed, Thou has died
To bear them all for me.


O Je­sus, I will cling to Thee,
I’ll love Thee more and more;
I’ll place my trem­bling hand in Thine
Until the bat­tle’s o’er.

Tho’ tried and pressed, yet I will trust,
This one thing I can do;
I’ll lean up­on Thy lov­ing breast,
Thou’lt guide me safe­ly thro’.


Tho’ rag­ing storms about me sweep,
And fie­ry bil­lows roll,
To Thee, dear Lord, I hum­bly trust
The keep­ing of my soul.
