A gift from thy sister – my dear boy
‘Tis the true source of happiness, peace, and joy.
May its beautiful precepts thy footsteps guide
And keep thee through life on virtue’s side/
This Book, imparted by a siters tears,
May it speak to thy heart in after years;
And when she rests ‘neath the lowly sod.
May I trach thee to put thy trust in God.
May thine, beloved, be a blessed lot- And oh, may the giver be never forgot!
