Excerpt from The Council School Hymn Book, and Prayers: With Accompanying Tunes In preparing "The Council School Hymn Book," the Editors have been guided by two main considerations, viz.: (1) To include only those hymns which express the central truths of religion, and which are at the same time within the comprehension and suited to the capacities of children. (2) To make the collection as large and varied as it can be, consistently with the maintenance of a literary standard equal to that of the best books used in the general educational work. They venture to hope that in the present collection these considerations have been met, and that in it will be found all that is best of such hymns hitherto written as are adapted for use in the nation's Public Elementary Schools. The Prayers for the Opening and Closing of School have been chosen on the same principle as the hymns. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
