As we sat by her side one calm day
And we read a sweet Psalm from God’s own holy Word
Which did fill her whole heart with its ray.
I do love it said she, as with fondness she laid
A dear wrinkled old hand on its page
Tis a light and a lamp to our path all the way
And a comfort from youth to old age.
T’was a joy to behold her deep love for her God
As she drank in the truths of His Word.
And like her, I’m resolved I must strive to become,
Tis for sure the desire of the Lord.
