A SHORT time since the Lord God took to himself a dear
boy, between twelve and thirteen years old, whose kindness
and f/ankness made him very much beloved by all who
knew him. Before his death he shewed, clearly, in many
ways, that he had been born again, and made a child of God
through faith in Jesus Christ ; and this little book of
hymns gave him much comfort and light. It was his wish
that what he enjoyed so much might be put within the
reach of others, and the book printed for the good of the
young. His father and mother, thankful for the new birth
of their son, and for the strength which God gives them to
bear up under their heavy trial, have fulfilled his wish, and
the book is now sent to you, dear young reader, as the dying
gift of Samuel George, in the hope that God, for the sake
of His beloved Son, would make it as great a blessing to
you as it was to their child.
