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


The happy morn is come!
The Savior leaves the grave,
His glorious work is done
Almighty now to save.


Captivity is captive led;
For Jesus liveth that was dead.

Who to our charge shall lay
Iniquity and guilt?
All sin is done away,
Since His rich blood was split.


Now the ungodly dares
The holy God draw near;
Justice itself declares
No cause remains for fear.


Christ hath the ransom paid;
The glorious work is done;
Oh Him our help is laid;
By Him our victory won.


Hail, the triumphant Lord!
Thy resurrection Thou!
We bless Thy sacred Word;
Before Thy throne we bow.
