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


The peace which God alone re­veals,
And by His word of grace im­parts,
Which on­ly the be­liev­er feels,
Direct and keep, and cheer your hearts.

And may the ho­ly Three in One,
The Fa­ther, Word, and Com­fort­er,
Pour an abun­dant bless­ing down
On ev­ery soul as­sem­bled here!
