Title

The New England Primer , featuring "An Alphabet of Lessons for Children"

Description

Text on left page reads "Time cuts down all Both great and small; Uriah's beauteous wife Made David seek his life. Whales in the sea God's voice obey. Xerxes the Great did die, And so must you and I. Youth Forward slips, Death soonest nips. Zaccheus he Did clime the tree, His Lord to see." Right page reads" An Alphabet of lessons for children. A wise son makes a glad father, but a foolish son is the heaviness of his mother. Better is a little, with the fear of the Lord, than great treasure, and trouble therewith. Come unto Christ, all ye who labor and are heavy laden, and he will give you rest. Do not the abominable thing which I hate, saith the Lord. Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child, but the rod of correction will drive it from him. Grieve not the Holy Spirit, lest it depart from thee. Holiness becomes God's house forever. It is good for me to draw near unto God. Keep they heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life. Liars will have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone."
