THESE SERVICES AND MUSIC FOR CHILDREN AND FOR MISSION AND PRIVATE CHAPELS,* WITH OTHER BEAUTIFUL
MUSIC, BOTH REVIVED AND NEW, FOR WIDER USE, HAVE ALL
BEEN PREPARED BY MOST SKILLED AND LOVING HANDS.
I EARNESTLY HOPE THAT THEY WILL MINISTER TO THE LOVE AND GLORY OF GOD IN HIS CHURCH.
Edw: Cantuar :
December 29, 1894.
*The Shortened Service has been compiled primarily for use in Mission and Private Chapels.
THE ARCHBISHOP writes:
"In Churches the only additions to the prescribed shortening must be taken out of the Morning and Evening Prayer itself, and the Lessons must be those from the Calendar."-[ED.]
PREFACE TO FIRST EDITION.
MY DEAR MR. Bouverie,
I am greatly ashamed to think how long a time has passed since I received your interesting MS. and how imperfectly I have examined it. But I have dipped into it repeatedly and entirely, and with thanks accept the honour you propose to do me, by dedicating the publication of it to me.
May every blessing of the Holy Spirit of God rest upon your flock and their pastor under The Great Shepherd, Who is as loving of the lambs as of the full-grown sheep, or it may be said even more so.
Believe me, Dear Mr. Bouverie,
PALACE, SALISBURY, 31st October, 1883.
Yours very faithfully,
PREFACE TO SECOND EDITION.
I have much pleasure in commending this new edition of the "Children's Service Book" to friends of Children both in the Diocese and out of it.
The Author has kindly submitted the MS. to me, and has, in my opinion, made many improvements in the book.
24th October, 1890.
The former edition was, I believe, much valued by those who used it. I cannot, therefore, doubt that in its present form it will be even more acceptable. The tone and spirit in which it is written will of themselves commend it to loving Christian hearts.
