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


All na­ture tells us of His won­drous care;
For us He’s fa­shioned all its beau­ties rare;
His pre­sence is re­flect­ed ev­ery­where;
Do you re­flect Him, too?


Reflect the Sav­ior in your life to­day;
As you go out upon the crowd­ed way,
Let Him be seen in all you do and say—
Reflect the Christ to­day.

We hear His whis­per in the birds that sing,
In sway­ing trees and in the bub­bling spring;
We look, and find Him in each grow­ing thing—
Can He be found in you?


From dawn of day un­til the night is here
We look around us, and we feel Him near,
And joy lights up the path we once thought drear—
Does He shine forth in you?


Throughout the world are ea­ger ones who long
To leave their wretch­ed paths of sin and wrong;
They seek the Christ amid the anx­ious throng—
Can they see Him in you?
