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


There’s a gleam of light in the skies of morn,
There’s a great stone rolled from the grave away;
To the waiting world there’s a hope new born
Of a joy to last for aye!


Ten thousand voices sound the word
Through gleaming courts on high;
The mighty One, the ris­en Lord,
Hath gained the vic­to­ry.

There’s an angel’s voice that good tidings brings,
There is light and peace after Calv’ry’s strife;
By the silent tomb there’s a gleam of wings:
In the place of death is life.


There’s a triumph song that shall ever ring
From the ages gone to the years before;
There’s a living Lord—there’s a ris­en king
Who abides for­ev­er­more.
