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


Who will labor for the Master?
Who will hear His call today?
Who will gladly reap the harest?
Who will now the call obey?


Come, come, work today for Jesus;
White the harvest, look around about thee;
Come, come, work today for Jesus,
Precious souls thy hire shall be.

Labor on and falter never,
Strive some other souls to win;
Lead them gently to the Savior,
From the desert paths of sin.


Help some stumbling, fainting brother
Who has heavy griefs to bear;
There’s a glorious harvest waiting,
For the faithful ones to share.
