PREFACE.

I HAVE compiled this book primarily for use in Sunday-Schools and the Home Circle.

I have selected such Hymns as I could find most suitable to the wants and tastes of the young. I have not thought it necessary that they should be childish. It is not childishness, but picturesqeness in a hymn that most interests children. There will be found, however, some hymns and tunes suitable for the youngest.

The Tunes are such as seemed, from their familiarity, or their easy melody, or their congregational character, best suited for the purpose intended. Most of the good congregational tunes will be found here; both because it is desirable that the children should early learn these tunes, that they may afterwards sing them in the congregation, and because the book is thereby rendered available for congregational use; for which also a considerable number of the Hymns are fitted.

The association of Hymns with Tunes is so much a matter of personal taste or accident, that no arrangement can be made which will not disturb some associations. I have endeavored to unite them by something more than an arbitrary relation, so as to justify that permanent union which is desirable.

The Hymns are followed by a selection of Psalms, (in Dr. Noyes's version) arranged for alternate reading. I intended to add a series of Scripture Lessons, selected from the various parts of the Bible; but have concluded to reserve them for a separate volume.

TO THE CHILDREN OF THE NEW CHAPEL, this book, prepared first of all for them, is affectionately DEDICATED, by their Pastor. He hopes that they will learn to love its Music and its Hymns; to sing them in school, at church, and at home; to know them by heart; and to cherish the true thoughts and holy feelings which they express. And often in coming years may these words and melodies, associated with happy hours, sacred resolutions, and dear friends, come up in their memories to comfort and to strengthen them.
