1 One of the sweet old chapters,
After a day like this,
A day of toil and sorrow,
And evening brings no kiss.
Bring out the fam’ly Bible
That father used to read,
The one that mother loved so well
In ev’ry time of need.

Refrain:
One of the sweet old chapters,
From God to His children dear;
O gracious, heav’nly Father,
Grant us the ear to hear.

2 One of the sweet old chapters,
That always will avail,
So full of heav’nly comfort,
When earthly comforts fail.
A sweet and blessed message
From God to His children dear,
So rich in precious promises,
So full of love and cheer. [Refrain]

3 One of the sweet old chapters,
When comes the lonely night,
When all things earthly fail us;
And tears have dimmed our sight,
This only can relieve us,
A message from above,
Then we can rest so sweetly,
In faith and hope and love. [Refrain]
