If you know Bow­den’s full name, or where to get a good pho­to of him or Spar­row (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


Sweet East­er morn that saw the Lord arise,
Sweet East­er day when prais­es rent the skies,
Shed o’er me, with thy rays of heal­ing balm,
A heav’n­ly peace, a high and ho­ly calm.

Sweet har­bin­ger of joy and peace and love,
Glad en­sign of a glo­ri­ous life above,
Thy peace­ful vi­gils in my life shall reign,
Banish all doubts and hal­low grief and pain.
