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


Oh, the pre­cious love of Je­sus,
Growing sweet­er day by day,
Turning all my heart so joy­ous,
To a heav’n­ly me­lo­dy.


Christ is pre­cious, Christ is pre­cious;
In life’s jour­ney He will lead thee;
Christ is pre­cious, Christ is pre­cious;
He will lead thee all the way.

But we can not know the full­ness
Of the Sav­ior’s won­drous love,
Till we see and know His glo­ry,
In the heav’n­ly home above.


Come and taste the love of Je­sus,
At His feet thy bur­dens lay;
Trust Him with thy grief and sor­row,
Bear this joy­ful song away.
