O cheered gospel! blessth be thee..
with all the pleasure of the world..
and if that be less, yet again, may he..
bestow the heavenly dues and gold..
let roses red and lilies blue..
combined with health and quintessence
be sprinkled along with hue..
from heavens proper essence..
your ventures vast and vivid..
we pray to be efficacious..
and your spirit less livid..
your life and times gracious..
on this happy day and time..
blessing and peace with this rime..
(was written for my teacher)
