FRANCIS JAMES CHILD

“'Tis Life whereof our nerves are scant,

Oh life, not death, for which we pant;

More Life, and fuller, that I want."
I am come that they might have life, and
that they might have it more abundantly."

PUBLISHERS' NOTE.

The present edition of this book is a reissue of that published in 1866, which was enlarged from a previous edition. The compiler in his brief preface then stated: “It is necessary to say that the titles given to some of the pieces are not those of the authors, and that, having a practical object in view, I have often taken only so much of a poem as answered my purpose. But in no instance have the words of an author been altered, though there are phrases here and there which I do not approve."
