If you know where to get a good pho­to of Criss (head-and-shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els), would you ?


Show me the way, dear Savior!
The shadows are falling fast;
And thro’ the clouds above me
No ray of light is cast;
The storm is wildly raging,
The thunders loudly roar;
The restless waves are dashing
Against the wreck-strewn shore.


Show me the way, dear Savior
That Thou wouldst have me go;
Show me the way, dear Savior,
For Thou alone dost know.

Show me the way, dear Savior!
The night is so wild and dark;
I cannot stem the current,
Unless Thou guide my bark;
Oh, fiercer grows the tempest,
And wilder rolls the sea!
Help! help me O my Savior!
I trust alone in Thee.


Show me the way, dear Savior!
My courage is failing fast;
My storm tossed bark is sinking;
Shall I be lost at last?
Come nearer, nearer to me,
And speak the word of peace
That stills the angry waters,
And bids the tempest cease.
