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


Praise the Lord—His pow­er con­fess;
Praise Him in His ho­li­ness;
Praise Him as the theme in­spires,
Praise Him as His fame re­quires.
Let the trum­pets lof­ty sound;
Spread its loud­est notes around;
Let the harp unite in praise,
With the sac­red min­strel’s lays.

Let the or­gan join to bless
God, the Lord of right­eous­ness;
Tune your voice to spread the fame
Of the great Je­ho­vah’s name.
All who dwell be­neath His light,
In His praise, your hearts unite,
While the stream of song is poured,
Praise and mag­ni­fy the Lord.
