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


We sing our song of ju­bi­lee,
Our voic­es ris­ing loud and free;
And with the notes of sweet accord,
We praise our ev­er bless­èd Lord.


Singing to­ge­ther, sing­ing to­ge­ther,
Teachers and schol­ars glad­ly unite;
Singing to­ge­ther, sing­ing to­ge­ther,
Love fills our hearts, and our fac­es are bright.

We praise Him for our mer­cies past,
And at His feet our cares we cast;
And O may He who guides our way
Forbid our youth­ful steps to stray.


Our Sabbath school, O may He bless,
And guard its lambs with ten­der­ness;
And lead us gent­ly when we die
To our good shep­herd’s fold on high.
