The twenty-six SAINTS in this volume of rhymes
Lived in various places at various times;

But now they're together in Heaven, and know
All we think, say and do in the world here below;

And since ail that you ask—if you pray for good ends—
Will be granted by GOD at the prayer of His friends,

You should call on these SAINTS in the days of your youth
For the Peace of the Church and the Triumph of Truth.

We hope, as these Rhymes are the best we can do,
That the SAINTS will be pleased, and that you'll be pleased too.
