This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you.

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

I have selected snch 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 child- 
ish. 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 chipracter, 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 associa- 
tions. 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 
&r a separate volume. 

To THE Childsen OP THE Nsw 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.

Come ye to the waters. 

The fountain in its source 
No drought of summer fears ; 
The farther it pursues its course, 
The nobler it appears. 

But shallow cisterns yield 
A scanty, short supply ; 
The morning sees them amply filled, 
At evening they are dry. 

The cisterns I forsake, 
Fount of life, for Thee ! 
My thirst with living waters slake, 
And drink eternity. 

Let him that heareth say 
To all about him, " Come !" 
Let him that thirsts for righteousness, 
To Thee, the fountain, come I

Comb, children, let us go I 
Our leather is our guide ; 
And if our way be bright or dark, 
He's ever at our side. 

Our spirits He will cheer 
With sunshine of his love. 
He guards us, and we need not fear, 
With such a Friend above. 

Come, children, let us go I 
Nor by the way faU out ; 
But help each other brotherly,- —

ITie Hymn of Nature, 

The heavenly spheres to thee, God, 

Attune their evening hymn j 
All- wise, iJl-holy, thou art praised 

In song of seraphim. 
Unnumbered systems, suns, and worlds, 

Unite to worship thee, 
While thy majestic greatness fills 

Space, time, eternity. 



Nature, a temple worthy thee, 

Beams with thy light and love ; 
Whose flowers so sweetly bloom below, 

Whose stars rejoice above ; 
Whose altars are the mountain-oIi£& 

That rise along the shore ; 
Whose anthems, the sublime accord 

Of storm and ocean-roar. 



Her song of grati^^^^o is sung 

By Spring s awakening hours ; 
Her SuDimer offers at thy shrine 

Its earliest^ loveliest flowers; 
Her Autumn brings its golden finiits^ 

In glorious luxury given ; 
While Winter's silver heights reflect 

Thy brightness back to heaven. 



On all thpu smil*st ; and what is man 

Before thy presence, God ? 
A breath — ^but 'tis a breatii from thee, 

That makes him nature's lord ; 
His body to the earth belongs, 

But quickened, Lord, by mee, 
His spirit to its Father springs, 

To immortality.

Of meekness, fidth, and love, 
Of trials, sufferings, glory.

And, as we need, renew us 

In Christ-like piety.

Opening Hymn, 

"We come, Q-od, with gladness, 

Our humble thanks to bring ; 
With hearts yet free from sadness^ 

Our hymns of praise we sing. 
Along our path are glowing 

The tokens of thy love ; 
like streams of boimty flowing 

Thy mercies from above. 

Health, peace, and joy attend us, 

Kind friends are ever near ; 
O Father I thou dost send us 

Unnumbered blessings here : 
And though we, in our blindness, 

^joy, but disobey, 
Yet stiU, thou, in thy kmdness, 

Tak'st not Ihy gifts away. 



Here, then, in childhood's morning, 

Our hymns to thee we raise ; 
Thy love, our lives adorning, 

Shall All our hearts with praise. 
Thy will henceforth for ever 

Shall be our only guide ; 
Prom duty's path we *d never, 

0, never I turn aside. 

18. 

Closing Hymn, 

O God, whose truth believing, 

We gathered here to-day. 
The truths we've been receiving 

Bless, ere we go away I 
Deep in our spirits living, 

Like seeds of golden grain, 
In fruits of noble striving 

May they spring up again.

The sultry sun's intenser heat, 

And thorns of worldly care. 

22. 

Now that the sun is gleaming bright^ 

Implore we, bending low, 
That He, the uncreated light. 

May guide us as we ga 

No sinftil word, nor deed of wrong. 

Nor thoughts that idly rove ; 
But simple truth be on our tongue. 

And m our hearts be love.

Lovrng-Tem^^Mss of God, 

Father, to thy kind love we owe 
All that is fair and good below ; 
Bestower of the health that lies 
On tearless cheeks and cheerful eyes I 

Giver of sunshine and of rain I 
Ripener of fruits on hill and plain I 
Fountain of light, that rayed afar, . 
Fills the vast urns of sun and star 1 

Who send'st thy storms and frosts to bind 
The plagues that rise to waste mankind ; 
Then, breathest o'er the naked scene. 
Spring gales, and life, and tender green« 

Yet deem we not tliat thus alone, 
Thy mercy and thy love are shown ; 
For we have learned, with higher praise. 
And holier names, to speak thy ways. 



50. 

SongofFaiih, 

Sing to the Lord, and loud proclaim 
His mighty and his loving name I 
Oh, may he not be named alone. 
But by our sure experience known I 

Through every age his gracious ear 
Is open to his servants* prayer ; 
Nor can one humble soul complain 
That it hath sought its God in vain. 

What unbelieving heart shall dare 
In whispers to suggest a fear. 
While still he owns his ancient name^ 
The same his power, his love the same ? 

To thee our souls in faith arise ; 
To thee we lift expectant eyes. 
And boldly through the desert tread, 
For Gk)d will guard where God diall lead.

E*en the hour that darkest seemeth, 
Will his changeless goodness prove : 

From the gloom his brightness streameth ;

Hope and comfort firom above : 

Every where his glory shineth j

Praise the Lord, when early breezes 
Come so fragrant from the flowers ! 

Praise, thou willow by the brookside ! 
Praise, ye birds among the bowers ! 

Praise the Lord I and may his blessing 
Guide us in the way of truth, 

Keep our feet from paths of error, 
Make us holy in our youth. 

Praise the Lord, ye hosts of heaven I 
Angels, sing your sweetest lays I 

Children, utter forth his glory !

I WAS a wandering sheep, 

I did not love the fold, 
I did not love the Shepherd's voice, 

I would not be controlled. 

I was a wayward child, 

I did not love my home, 
I did not love m j ^Father's vdce, 

I loved a&r to roam. 

The Shepherd sought his sheep. 
The Father sought his child. 
They followed me o*er vale and hill. 
O'er deserts waste and wild ; 
They found me nigh to death, 
An-hungered, &int, and lone, 
They bound me with the bands of love, 
* They saved the wandering one. 

I was a wandering sheep. 
I would not be controlled, 
But now I love my Shepherd's voice, 
I love, I love the fold. 



I was a wayward child, 
I once preferred to roam. 
But now I love my Fatiier's voice, 
I love, I love his home. 

69. 

Gk>D, who is just and kind, 
Will those who err instruct, 
And to the paths of righteousness 
Their wandering steps conduct 

Give me the tender heart 
That mingles awe with love. 
And lead me through whatever path 
Thy wisdom shall approve. 

Oh I ever keep my soul 
From error, shame, and guilt ; 
Nor suffer the fair hope to fail, 
Which on my youth is built.

72. 

Ih'ayer, 

Pbayer is the souVs sincere desire, 

Unuttered or expressed ; 
The motion of a hidden fire 

That trembles in the breast 

Pi^er is the burden of a sigh, 

The falling of a tear, 
The iqiward glancing of an eye, 

When none but (&d is near. 

Prayer is the simplest ff^Ta of speech 

^Hiat infant lips can try : 
Prayer, the sublimest strains that readi 

The Majesty on high. 

Prayer is the contrite sinner^s voice, 

Betuming from his ways ; 
While ang^ in their songs rejoice. 

And cry — " Behdd he prays."

Evening Meditation. 

I LOVE to steal awhile away 
From every cumbering care, 

And spend the hours of setting day 
In humble, grateful prayer. 

I love to think on mercies past, 

And future good implore. 
And all my cares and sorrows cast 

On him whom I adore. 

I love by faith to take a view 
Of brighter scenes in heaven ; 

The prospect doth my strength renew, 
While here by tempests driven. 

Thus, when life's busy day is o*er, 

May its departing ray 
Be calm as this impressive hour. 

And lead to endless day.

How sweet to be al - lowed to proy To Qod, the Ho - ly One, 




With fil -» ial love and truBt to -aay, Gk>d, thy will be done I 



81. 

Siknt Prayer, 

Sweet is the prayer whose holy stream 

In earnest pleading flows ; 
Devotion dwells upon the theme, 

And warm and warmer glows. 

Faith grasps the blessiiigs she desires, 
Hope points the upw£^ gaze ; 

And loye, untrembling love, inspires 
The eloquence of praise. 

But no less sweet the still, small Yoice, 

Unheard by human ear, 
When Otod hath made the heart rejoice, 

And dried the bitter tear. 

Nor accents flow, nor words ascend ; 

All utterance mileth there ; 
But listening spirits comprehend, 

And Gk>d accepts the prayer. 



Ihs Projyer of Trust. 

How sweet to be allowed to pray ' 

To God, the Holy One, 
With filial love and trust to say, 

God, thy will be done I 

We in these sacred words can find 

A cure for every ill ; 
They cabn and soothe the troubled mind, 

And bid all care be still 

Oh, let that will, which gave me breath, 

And an immortal soul, 
In joy or grie^ in life or death, 

My every wish control 

Oh, teach my heart the blessed way 

To imitate thy Son ! 
Teach me, G^ in truth to pray, 

*' Thy will, not mine, be done."

Aloft, through virtue's purer air,

To thee our souls we lift ;

We ask not golden streams of wealth . 

Along our path to flow ; 
We ask not undecaying health, 

Nor length of years below. 

We ask not honors, which an hour 

May bring and take away ; 
We ask not pleasure, pomp, and power, 

Lest we should go astray. 

We ask for wisdom : — ^Lord, impart 
The knowledge how to live ; 

A wise and understanding heiurt 
To all before thee give.

That hates to quarrel, fret, and tease, 
And would not say an angry word, —

Than if we gave him all our store ; 
And children here, who dweU in love,

Thus shall we best proclaim abroad 
The honors of our Saviour Gk)d, 
When l^e salvation reigns within. 
And there subdues tlie power of sin. 

Our flesh and sense must be denied, 
Passion and envy, lust and pride ; 
While justice, temperance, truth, and love^ 
Our inward piety approve. 

Religion bears our spirits up, 
While we expect that blessed hope, 
The coming of thy kingdom, Lord, 
And £uth stands leaning on thy word.

ChUdhood of Jesus, 

In fair green fields of Palestine, 
And by its winding rills, ^ 

Along the Jordan's sacred stream, 
And o'er the vine-dad hills, 

Once lived and roved the fairest child 
That ever blessed the earth ; 

The holiest, the happiest, 
And yet of humblest birth. 

How beautiful his childhood was, 

How fair and undefiled I 
Oh, dear to his yoimg mother's heart 

Was this pure, sinless cHild I 

Kindly in all his deeds and words. 

And gentle as the dove ; 
Obedient, affectionate, 

His very soul was love. 



•116. 

Manhood of Jesus, 

The child of Nazareth grew up 
A noble, holy youth ; 
' Grew up, to sufier and to die, 
A saci^ce for Truth. 

He put all thought of praise away. 

Content with low estate, 
To live a life of toil and pain. 

And meet a martyr's fate. 

[babes 
One day when mothers brought their 

To be by Jesus blessed. 
He clasped them in his loving arms, 

And held them to his breast 

And as we read his story now. 

Our grateful bosoms sweU, 
With warm and reverent love to him 

Who loved the children well.

And man to man was stem and cold ;

A meek and lowly stranger came ;

He raised the contrite sinner's head; 
And on the loved ones' lowly rest 
The light of better life he shed.

In the Saviour's hour of death, 
Bound upon the cross of fear. 
While his quick and struggling breath 
Spoke the fatal moment near. 
While his proud, triumphant foes 
Mocked the sufferings that he bore, 
Then his loving spirit rose 
More sublime than e'er before. 

He has taught us to forgive, 
By his words in days gone by ; 
He has taught us how to live ; 
Can he teach us how to die ? 
Listen 1 as the cross they raise. 
One brief prayer ascends to heaven ; 
For his murderers he prays, — 
" Father, may they be forgiven 1"

Sat enwrapt in holy thought ; 
Listening to his accents sweet. 
Eagerly each word she cauffht 
How those accents cahned her hearty 
Falling from the lips she loved I — 
Thus she chose the better part, 
Thus the " one thing needful" proved. 

" Raiment do ye need and food, 
This your heavenly Father knows ; 
But there is a higher good. 
Righteousness which he bestows." 
Sitting as at Jesus' feet 
May those words sink in our heart ; 
While we hear the accents sweet. 
May we choose the better part

Then here reposing, let us raise 
A* song of gratitude and praise. 

Look up to heaven I the obedient sun 
Already half his race has run ; 
He cannot halt nor ^o astray, 
But our immortal spuits may. 

Lord, since his rising in the east, 
If we have faltered or transgressed. 
Guide, from thy love's abundant souree, 
What yet remains of this day's course. 

Help with thy grace, throughout life's day, 
Our upward and our downward way ; 
And glorify for us the west 
When we shall sink to final rest

And while our voices raise, 

Oh, let our lives, great Gk>d, breathe forth 

A constant melody ;

O Lord of seasons I unto thee 

Our hymn with grateiul hearts we raise, 

For all thy gifts so rich and free, 

That crown these sweet autumnal days. 

By thy dear love the lap of Spring 
Was heaped with many a blooming flower. 
And smiling Smnmer joyed to bring 
The sunshine and the gentle shower. 

And Autumn brings her riches now; 
Of ripening grain and burstilig shell, 
And golden sheaf and laden bgugh 
The fulness of thy bounty telL 

Beneath blue skies^ the fragrant breeze 
O'er rustling, fallen leaves doth blow ; 
And purple, gold, and scarlet trees 
The ftdness of thy beauty show. 



145. 

'T IS Winter now ; the gleaming snow 
Has left the heavens all cold and clear ; 
Through leafless boughs the sharp winds blow, 
And aJl the earth lies dead and drear. 

And yet God's love is not withdrawn; 
His lue within the keen air breathes. 
His beauty paints the crimson dawn. 
And clothes the boughs with glittering wreaths. 

And though abroad the sharp winds blow, 
And skies are chill, and frosts are keen, 
Home closer draws her circle now. 
And warmer glows her light within. 

God I who giv'st the winter's cold 
As well as sunamers joyous rays. 
Us warmly in thy love enfold, 
And keep us thro' life's wintry days I

How when Jesus was here among men, 
He onoe called little children as lambs to his fold, 

I should like to hare been with them then. 

I wish that his hands had been placed on my head, 
That his arm had been thrown around me, 

And that I might haye seen his kind look when he said, 
«Let the Httle ones oome unto me." 

Yet still to his presence in thouj^t I may go, 

And ask for a share of his love ; 
He who loved little children, when dwelling bdk>w, 

Must love them, when dwelling above.

With the sweet food she makes I

Lest there be found some mischief still 

For idle hands to do.

That I may give for every day 

Some good account at last.

His joy our hearts within. 
We need not, Lord, our gladness leave, 

To worship thee aright ; 
Our joyfulness for praise receive I 

Thou mak^st our lives so bright I 

We turn to God a smiling &ce, 

He smiles on us again ; 
He loves to see our cheerfulness.

To blameless hearts reveal

Bow down and adore him with heart unde-

Under thy care my childhood take. 
And bless me when I sleep or wake.

And he will keep me by his power,

I USED to think that yonder sky 
Was God's own palace bright and high ; 
That winged angels, glittering fair. 
Were ever singing praises there. 

I looked for them in sunset skies, 
I thought the stars were their bright eyes 
But now I'm glad that when I pray, 
God's heaven is not so far away. 

I feel the soft and silent air, 
And joy to know that God is there ; 
And when mv heart to him is given, 
I love to think that that is heaven.

Then seize, youth I the present hour, 

Of that thou hast most need.

For in the present time.

Each seed that thou hast sown ; 

And every act and word at last

Felix trembled, long ago, 

When the great apostle told 
Of the judgment, that should show 

What was dross and what was gold 
Judgment sure which would not spare 

Even the king upon the throne ; 
And the stem decision th^re 

Must be made by truth alone. 

" Go thy ways," the Roman said, 
" Till a more convenient time ;" 
Thus his soul shook off its dread — 

But that season never came.

Say to conscience, " Go thy ways," 
Think upon this solemn truth,

Ho I ye that rest beneath the rock,

Or roam at will, a favored flock, 

By waters gently flowing —

Where, cold upon the bairen moor, 

God's little lambs are dying. 

See, the great Shepherd bend and call 

From fields of light and gloiy : 
** Go, feed my lambs and bring them all,

Thou hast kept us in safety through another 
week [year]. We praj thee to pardon what- 
ever we have done amiss therein. 

Thou, who in thy great love for litfle 
children, ^dst give us me, and dost every day 
give us blessings, we thank thee for tiiy great 
loving-kindness, and the multitude of thy 
mercies to us. 

We thank thee for the light of day and the 
stillness of night; for the beauty of the sky 
and the earth ; for the stars and the flowero ; 
for the dear fiJces of those we love. 

We thank thee for our homes and friendi ; 
for our daily bread and our nightly rest 

We thank thoe for the gift of immortal life ; 
that when we die, and our bodies are laid away 
in the beautiful earth, our spirits may live for- 
ever with thine angels, in a more beautiAil 
world. 

We thank thee for the life and words of the 
holy Jesus; and for aJl who teach us what is

to our parents and our teachers, and to ^ 
commandment; not with eye^ervice^ but
