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


Awake in Jesus—O how blest
To be forever on His breast;
No sorrow now, and no more tears,
But peace and joy that banish fears.


Awake in Jesus, awake in Jesus,
To bear His likeness forevermore.

Awake in Jesus—sweetest frame,
To feel His breath like living flame;
And hear my loving Father say,
Now all thy tears are wiped away.


Awake in Jesus—heav’nly light,
Whose presence drives away my night;
Who bids me all His glory trace,
And see my Savior face to face.
