HOW painfully pleasing the fond recollection,
Of youthful connection and innocent joy;
When blest with parental advice and affection,
Surrounded with mercy and peace from on high!
I still view the seats of my Father and Mother,
And those of their offspring as ranged on each hand;
And the riches 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.
