If you know where to get a good pho­to of Shepard (head-and-shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els), or a bet­ter one of Rowe, would you ?


My path was always rough and drear,
My soul was always sad;
But now my path is smooth and bright,
My soul forever glad.


It was Jesus, my Savior
Who wrought this change in me;
It was Jesus, my Savior,
Blest Lamb of Calvary;
I came to Him just as I was,
From sin He set me free;
It was Jesus, my Savior,
Who wrought this change in me.

My soul was stained with many sins,
I lived in fear and dread;
But now my soul is free from stain,
And all my fears have fled.


O wandering one in paths of sin,
The Savior calls to thee;
He longs to give you peace and rest,
From sin to set you free.
