If you know Shankland’s full name, or where to get a good pho­to of her or Chapman, would you ?


O trust thyself to Jesus when thou art full of care,
When life with all its problems seems more than you can bear;
Then is the time for taking thy burdens all to Him,
And, on His Word relying, know peace and joy within.

He’s able to defend thee from every weary care,
From every weight of sorrow that would thy soul ensnare;
He’s able to deliver, to tear these bands away,
And, wondrous light revealing, change darkness into day.

O Jesus, loving Savior, fulfill this truth in me,
And save me from mistreating the care that comes from Thee;
O lead me on in knowledge to see Thee as Thou art,
And in a higher glory possess my longing heart.
