If you know Holt or Law­ence’s full name, or where to get their pho­tos, would you ?


Oh, tell of His goodness today,
And speak of His wonderful grace;
All along life’s glorified upward way,
Let the love-light gleam bright on your face.


Oh, tell it, oh, tell it,
At each step in your pathway along;
And blessings will come
Like the sweetness of sunlight and song.

Oh, tell the sweet secret today,
To those who are pressing around,
Or the loved ones toiling beside the way,
All in sorrow and wretchedness found.


Oh, tell it while yet you can speak
The words full of sweetness and cheer;
To sustain with hope and uphold the weak,
Who are foll’wing and trembling with fear.
