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


Who will suffer with the Sav­ior,
Take the little that remains
Of the cup of tribulation
Jesus drank in dying pain?


Lord, we fellowship Thy passion,
Gladly suffer shame and loss;
With Thy blessing pain is pleasure,
We will glo­ry in Thy cross.

Who will offer soul and body
On the altar of our God?
Leaving self and worldly mammon,
Take the path that Je­sus trod?


O for consecrated service
’Mid the din of Babel strife!
Who will dare the truth to herald
At the peril of his life?


Soon the conflict will be over,
Crowns await the firm and pure;
Forward, brethren, work and suffer,
Faithful to the end endure.
