The two following chapters, relating to the supreme importance of reading the Bible daily in every public school of the land, are a supplement to the brief discussion of this subject, that appears in the introductory part of this volume.
“Truth crushed to earth shall rise again,
The eternal years of God are hers;
But Error, wounded, writhes in pain,
And dies among his worshippers.”
“Truth forever on the scaffold;
Wrong forever on the throne;
Yet that scaffold sways the future;
And behind the dim unknown,
Standeth God, within the shadow,
Keeping watch above his own.”
Queen Victoria said to the King of Siam: “England owes her greatness to this book-The Open Bible.”
The Bible, and the public school to make known to all the children its moral principles and religious truths, have brought liberty, greatness and enlargement to the United States of America and Great Britain.
These two instrumentalities-the open Bible and public school-will bring the needed blessings of intelligence, happiness and prosperity to the people of the United States of Mexico, of Central and South America, when they are accorded a fair chance.
