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


Sing the prais­es of the Sav­ior,
Tune your hearts and sweet­ly sing;
Join in ask­ing for His fa­vor,
Ask, for He is list­en­ing.


Allelujah is the cho­rus,
By the choirs of Hea­ven sung;
By the loved ones gone be­fore us,
By the pure of ev­ery tongue.

Mercy was His chief­est plea­sure,
Ere the world be­gan to move;
Sweetly sing in num­bered mea­sure,
Sing the dear Re­deem­er’s love.


Turn to Je­sus—Prince of glo­ry,
Holy pro­phet, priest and king;
Spread abroad the won­drous sto­ry,
Children all, His prais­es sing.
