HOW painfully pleasing the fond recollection
Of youthful connection and innocent joy,
While blest with parental advice and affection,
Surrounded with mercies and peace from on high!
I still see the seats of my father and mother,
And those of their offspring as ranged on each hand;
And that richest of books that excelled every other,
The Family Bible that lay on the stand.
The old fashioned Bible!
The dear blessed Bible!
The family Bible that lay on the stand.
