The Parish Hymnal : For the Service of Song in the House of the Lord (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Parish Hymnal: For the Service of Song in the House of the Lord And yet, when I think of the original design to provide a book for Sunday schools, I imagine a friend, after glancing his eyes over the pages of this Hymnal, suggesting, with a smile, that I have adhered too rigidly to the princi ple enunciated by St. Paul in the familiar verse When I was a child, I spake as a child but when I became a man, I put away childish things. Such a friend might venture to insinuate that the book is too old-fashioned, too dry and hard featured to suit children's wants and wishes. I find it necessary, therefore, by way of an apology, to expose more fully the motives which have inﬂuenced me while selecting the Hymns and the accompanying Tunes.
