And perishable toys. Without Thy pardoning love.
And perishable toys. IWithout Thy pardoning love.

standing by the carcase : and they came and told it in the city where the old

Lord : therefore the Lord hath delivered him unto the lion, which hath torn him,

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.. She
looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of
idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed ; her husband also,
and he praiseth her. Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain : but a woman
that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. Proverbs xxxi. 10-30,
Yes, home is a delightful word! 0 Saviour! drawn by boundless grace,
The father's fervent prayer, From Thy bright throne in heaven,
The mother's love, the infant's smile, To lead a pilgrim's life on earth!
The springs of life are there. To us may grace be given!
