If you know where to get a good pic­ture of Kethe or Far­na­by (head-and-shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els), would you ?


Such as in God the Lord do trust
As Mount Sion shall firmly stand,
And be removèd at no hand,
The Lord will count them right and just,
So that they shall be sure
Forever to endure.

As mighty mountains huge and great
Jerusalem about do close,
So will the Lord be unto those
Who on His godly will do wait;
Such are to Him so dear
They never need to fear.

For though the righteous try doth He
By making wicked men His rod,
Lest they through grief forsake their God;
It shall not as their lot still be.
Give, Lord, to us Thy light
Whose hearts are true and right.
