Search the Scriptures."

Deeper dig into this mineBrighter yet the jewels shine. My Bible.

My own dear Bible ! How I love

On these fair leaves to look ! My friend, my guide to realms above,

My bright, my golden book!

In early life it touched my heart,

It gave me eyes to see ;
O ne'er may cold indifference part

My own loved book and me!

To silent rooms and shady bowers

The cherished page 1 bear ;
Sole witness of my secret hours-

Companion of my prayer.
Sage penmen were inspired of oli,

Its treasures to record ;
In thee, O book! mine eyes behold

My Saviour, King, and Lord. What heavenly kindness in his face,

What beauty in his crown! O best of books ! wherein such grace,

Such love to man is shown.
