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


There shall be no more tears,
No weeping evermore,
But end of earthly fears,
On that celestial shore.


Over there, may we meet,
Over there, you and I,
All our loved ones to greet,
In the sure by and by.

There shall be no more sighs,
No death nor sickness there,
No mournful heavy eyes,
Within those mansions fair.


There shall be no more pain,
No moanings, nor distress.
With everlasting gain,
Shall God His people bless.
