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


O Jesus, at Thy cross I fall!
From sin and shame I fly;
And on Thy hallowed name I call:
Save, Jesus, or I die.


Now save me, save me, gracious God!
As now to Thee I fly;
Oh, wash me in Thy cleansing blood!
Oh, wash me, or I die!

Speak pardon, Lord! show pity now;
What yet have I to flee?
See! at Thy feet I humbly bow;
My life I give to Thee.


God of almighty power and love,
Say, is there grace for me?
Oh, let my cry Thy pity move!
Oh, let me fly to Thee.


Yes, bless the Lord, I now believe
Thy blood was shed for me!
Glory to God! I now receive
A pardon full and free.
