Jesus Permit Thy Gracious Name samplers

One of the more popular verses on antique samplers seems to be "Jesus permit thy gracious name to stand as the first efforts of this infant's hand" and variations thereof. I thought it would be fun to post a few of the images I've collected of these verses as I find it so interesting to see how each needleworker chose to illustrate their sampler uniquely.

I don't always remember where I find these images but if you like browsing antique samplers as much as I do then M.Finkel and Daughter have a wonderful website showing all kinds of antique samplers.
