Excerpt from Poems Divine and Moral: Many of Them Now First Published
As youth is the season best fitted for ia struction, and every Christian must admit that religious knowledge is the most import ant of all; and as verse is more easily learnt, and longer retained than prose; I have made the rising generation my principal objects. And, being convinced by long experience, that such instruction cannot begin too soon, and that short hymns and psalms are suited to the minds and memories of children, even in infancy, I have placed such in the first pages of my book, and would earnestly recommend to those of my readers who have the charge of children in their tender years, to teach them to repeat a few stanzas of these, even before they can speak plain. I know it may be done with pleasure to them, as well as to their instructors, and it will implant in their minds pious ideas and use ful maxims, which will be retained, and prove highly beneficial throughout their fu ture lives.
