Now in their youngest days;
And sing their Saviour's praise.

Tais hymn book has been prepared at the sug gestion of several friends who thought the Sunday-school hymn-books hitherto in use among us were in some respects defective. The present collection will be found to contain a great er variety of hymns suited to the capacities of children, and also of hymns for special occasions. As far as was practicable the hymns have been classed under appropriate heads, so that persons may readily turn to hymns on almost any subject or occasion they may wish.
As many of the hymns in this volume were nyc originally composed with a view to their use in Sunday schools, it has occasionally been found necessary to make a few verbal alterations to adapt them to that purpose. On the principle of rendering honour to whom it is due the author's name has been put to each hymn when it could be traced with any degree of certainty.
The collection, such as it is, is now offered to the public in the hope that if it be not found ai!
that is desired, it will at least be regarded as an improvement on its predecessors. S. B. W.
