The Poem that Inspired my blog name

“There’s just one Book,” cried the dying sage,

Read me the old, old, story.”

And the winged words that can never age

Wafted him home to Glory

There’s just one book.

There’s just one book for the tender years,

One book for alone for guiding

The little feet through the joys and fears,

The unknown days are hiding.

There’s just one book.

There’s just one Book for the bridal hour,

One Book of love’s own coining;

Its truths alone lend beauty and power,

To vows that lives are joining.

There’s just one Book.

There’s just one Book for life’s gladness,

One Book for the toilsome days,

One Book that cure life’s madness

One book that can voice life’s praise.

There’s just one book

There’s just one Book for the dying,

One Book for the starting tears,

And one for the soul that is going home,

For the measureless years.

There’s just one book.
