If you know Bry­ant’s full name, or where to get a good pho­to of him (head-and-shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els), would you ?


I’ve a home beyond the sea,
Where the shining angels wait;
There’s a place prepared for me,
Just inside the golden gate.


Just inside the golden gate,
Over in the blest estate;
O that home so bright and fair,
Just inside the golden gate.

There are mansions bright and fair,
In the blest redeemed one’s state;
Peace and joy beyond compare,
Just inside the golden gate.


I shall pass within the gate,
Where the many mansions wait;
I’m an heir to that estate,
Just inside the golden gate.
