Books! Books! Books! (William L. Stidger)

Books! Books! Books!
And we thank Thee, God,
For the gift of them;
For the glorious reach
And the lift of them;
For the gleam in them
And the dream in them;
For the things they teach
And the souls they reach!
For the maze of them
And the blaze of them;
For the ways they open to us
And the rays that they shoot through us!

Books! Books! Books!
And we thank Thee, God,
For the light in them,
For the might in them;
For the urge in them
And the surge in them;
For the souls they wake
And the paths they break;
For the gong in them
And the song in them;
For the throngs of folk they bring to us
And the songs of hope they sing to us!

Books! Books! Books!
And we thank Thee, God,
For the deep in them;
For the rhythmic swing
And sweep in them;
For the croon in them
And the boon in them;
For the prayers they pray
And the doubts they slay;
For the do in them
And the true in them;
For the blue skies they bring to us
And the new stars that they strew us.
