PREFACE.

THE EDITOR has sought in this Collection to include Hymns suitable to our youngest scholars; advanced enough for our Bible Classes ; appropriate for Teachers' Meetings, and Anniversary Services; and, also, a Book

which shall be acceptable in Day Schools, and in

OUR HOMES,

Very hearty thanks are presented to the Authors

and Proprietors of Hymns who have kindly given permission to use them. If in any case an Author

has been overlooked, it has been by mistake, for which

we tender an apology, and ask forgiveness.
