Side iv - The trivial round, the common task, Would furnish all we ought to ask; Room to deny ourselves ; a road To lead us, daily, nearer God.
Side iv - ... father came to breakfast or dinner, as soon as the repast was finished, (and a working man in health does not usually loiter over his meals,) our mother used to read aloud till the hour was finished, either with the youngest child upon her knee, or, if it was in the cradle, knitting while she read. She used to say, that it was disagreeable and improper to be bustling about while father was within ; and when he was gone out, the work must be done up.
Side 3 - AMONG the deepest shades of night, Can there be one who sees my way ? Yes ; God is like a shining light, That turns the darkness into day. When every eye around me sleeps, May I not sin without control ? No ; for a constant watch he keeps On every thought of every soul.
