If you know So­lo­mon or J. Straub’s full name, or where to get good pho­tos of them (head-and-shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els), would you ?


Shall peace on earth be waiting,
Shall man with man contend,
While Jesus stands inviting
The soul to love’s blest end?


By love and sweet submission,
The Master’s voice obey;
Come, join the heav’nly mission,
And watch and work and pray!

Shall passion still be able
From truth to lead astray?
Shall from the Lord’s free table
The hungry turn away?


Nay, on Thine altar holy,
With unreservèd mind,
To Christ and God all glory;
Help us our hearts to bind.
