A Boy’s Prize


In the Bible of a little boy after his death, 

show how highly he prized and loved his Bible:

"This little book I'd rather own,

Than all the gold and gems

That e'er in monarchs' coffers shone,

Than all their diadems.

"Nay, were the seas one chrysolyte,

The earth a golden ball,

And diamonds all the stars of night,

This book were worth them all."
