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


See, Father, Thy belovèd Son,
Whom here we now present to Thee;
The all sufficient sacrifice,
The sinner’s one and only plea.

Through Him we pray for all we love,
For all by pain or sin oppressed;
For souls departed in Thy fear:
O grant them eternal rest.
