With Best
WISHES

THE BIBLE! THE BIBLE!
MORE PRECIOUS THAN GOLD,
THE HOPES AND THE
GLORIES ITS PAGES UNFOLD,
IT SPEAKS OF A
SAVIOUR,
AND TELLS OF HIS LOVE,
IT SHOWS US THE WAY TO
THE MANSIONS ABOVE.

THE BIBLE! THE BIBLE!
BLEST VOLUME OF TRUTH,
HOW SWEETLY IT SMILES ON
THE SEASON OF YOUTH,
WE'LL SING OF ITS TRIUMPHS
WE'LL TELL OF ITS WORTH,
AND SEND ITS GLAD TIDINGS
AFAR O'ER THE EARTH.
