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


Whom have I in Heav’n but Thee?
Whom on earth beside Thee?
Thou alone canst cheer my way:
Save, and guard, and guide me.


Savior mine, I am Thine,
Thou wilt not de­ceive me;
If I put my trust in Thee,
Thou wilt ne­ver leave me.

Earthly friends may all for­sake,
Earthly woes be­tide me;
Let me put my hand in Thine,
Walking close be­side Thee.


Who re­deemed my soul from sin?
Life and par­don gave me?
All the glo­ry be to Thee:
Thou hast died to save me.


In the sha­dow of Thy wing,
I will safe­ly hide me;
Whom have I in Heav’n but Thee?
Whom on earth be­side Thee?
