'There is a book, who runs may read', is the first line of the poem by J. Keble. The poem in 12 stanzas of 4 lines was written in 1819, and published in 1827, as the poem for Septuagesima Sunday. The quote on the stone tablet is the final stanza. (visit link)

"THOU, WHO HAST GIVEN ME EYES TO SEE
AND LOVE THIS SIGHT SO FAIR
GIVE ME A HEART TO FIND OUT THEE,
AND READ THEE EVERYWHERE"
KEBLE."

"Author: John Keble
Keble, John, M.A., was born at Fairford, in Gloucestershire, on St. Mark's Day, 1792. His father was Vicar of Coln St. Aldwin's, about three miles distant, but lived at Fairford in a house of his own, where he educated entirely his two sons, John and Thomas, up to the time of their entrance at Oxford.
In 1806 John Keble won a Scholarship at Corpus Christi College, and in 1810 a Double First Class, a distinction which up to that time had been gained by no one except Sir Robert Peel. In 1811 he was elected a Fellow of Oriel, a very great honour, especially for a boy under 19 years of age; and in 1811 he won the University Prizes both for the English and Latin Essays."
