HE inquiry is sometimes made, “Why issue so many Sabbath-school song books ? we

cannot keep pace with all the new music that is published, and have not sung out

the last book yet.” On the other hand, it is perhaps more frequently asked, “What
is to be the new book for this year ? we have been using your last book in our Sunday-school
and now are looking for a new book; please send us sample pages of your latest." Which
of these voices shall we obey ? It cannot do the first any harm to issue new books, seeing
they are not compelled to use them. We have material always on hand-choice. pieces as ever
were sung-shall we hold them back until they become antiquated, or at once give them to an
eager throng, ready and willing to receive them? We prefer the latter course,—it is our chosen
business to meet just such demands, and while the schools of the land are enjoying the beau-
tiful melody and sacred poetry of the present collection, we will, D. V., continue our labors in
preparation of a successor to meet other demands when these shall have served their purpose.
That each SABBATH HOME may thereby become more attractive and more spiritual is the aim
and earnest prayer of

THE COMPILERS.
