The
Priceless Gem.

Tell me not of sparkling gems,
Set in regal diadems,
You may boast
Your diamonds rare,
Rubies bright,
And pearls so fair;
But there's a priceless
Gem on earth,
Of richer ray and purer worth;
'Tis priceless
But 'tis worn by few --
It is, it is
The heart that's true.

with words beneath:
 
GATHERING OF PURE AFFECTION

 

Bring the tulip and the rose,
While their brilliant
Beauty glows;
Let the storm--cloud
Fling a shade.
Rose and tulip both will fade;
But there's a flower
That still is found,
When mist and
Darkness close around;
Changeless, fadeless
In its hue --
It is, it is
The heart that's true.
