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


Into Thy ser­vice, Lord,
Thou call­est me;
Faithful in all my work
Help me to be;
Emptied of self and sin,
With only Christ with­in,
Aid me lost souls to win
From sin to Thee.

Thou gav’st Thy­self for me,
Lord, Thou art mine;
I give my­self to Thee,
Savior di­vine;
Now for Thine own name’s sake,
I full sur­ren­der make;
All I pos­sess now take,
All, all is Thine.

That I Thy will may do,
Show me the way;
For this my strength re­new
From day to day;
This is my ear­nest plea,
Thine whol­ly, Lord, to be,
Serve ev­er on­ly Thee,
And Thee obey.
