FOR SUNDAY SCHOOLS.
Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1863, by
WALKER, WISE, AND COMPANY, in the Clerk's Office of the District Court of the District of Massachusetts.
The present Services have been compiled to accompany the Hymn-Book, entitled “ Youthful Voices,” prepared by a committee of the Sunday-School Teachers' Institute. The collection of hymns suffers from having been the work of several hands, and the Services, owing their existence to yet another; are not perhaps entirely at one with the hymns. The want of a Service-Book, however, at once combining a large variety of subjects, and brevity and unity in each exercise, seems to call for a publication in this present form.
At the commencement of each exercise references are given to appropriate chapters of the Bible, although in many instances the Superintendent may select others.
The selections for alternate reading are all from Scripture, and transferred without alteration; and it is hoped that by the constant use of Bible texts the pupils may ever become more familiar with the value and universal application of the Sacred Book.
Many of the prayers have been written by Boston clergymen, and to them thanks are also due for expressions of encouragement and approbation in a work pleasant, but delicate and laborious.
