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


How good is the God we adore,
Our faithful unchangeable friend;
His love is as great as His power,
And knows neither measure nor end.

’Tis Je­sus the first and the last,
Whose Spi­rit shall guide us safe home,
We’ll praise Him for all that is past,
And trust Him for all that’s to come.
