Note:  I did not change the layout of this to fit a 'web page', as I thought it was nicer to have it as appears in the Bible.

The following is taken from the family Bible of Aaron Robertson and Elizabeth Beck.

This Bible was later
Presented to
Mary F. Evans
by her father

A. Robertson & Family

Within these light illumined pages
So beauteous to behold
Are hidden gems of Revelation
Treasures of the New and Old.

Mankind in times long since forgotten
Have sought to understand the Truth
Yet many a truth remains unspoken
Precious to the aged and youth.

Herein we find no contradiction
Man will sometime understand
Each parable, metaphor and vision
For all point to that Happy Land.
