If you know Glov­er’s full name, or where to get a good pho­to of him (head-and-shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els), would you ?


Come, join in a song,
With voice clear and strong,
To welcome the glorious day,
The day which of all
The day we should call
Most welcome and glorious alway,


Our Savior and King,
Of Him will we sing,
High praises to Him we will render;
All thanks to His name,
Spread wide His great fame,
Redeemer and loving Defender.

Then join in the praise
Of this best of days,
On which our Redeemer rose,
The day which was giv’n
To lead us to Heav’n,
Redeemed by His pow’r from our foes,
