Editorial Foreword 



The present work is one of two manuals that have been prepared in col- 
laboration by Mrs. Rowland and Mrs. Smith. The plans for both manuals 
have followed along similar lines. The introductory pages are made up in 
the main from the teachers' books in each course. 

After a short series of General Orders of Service come Special Orders of 
Service, one only for the Cradle Roll in the manual for teachers of beginners, 
and two each for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, Mother's Day, Missions, 
and Promotion Day. Tfac -mami'al f^)r-psin??.-ry ^teachers does not contain a 
special for cradle roll, bu4;-T!as t?^ree 'e.aLCtr for: ihose mentioned above, with 
an addition of two on tempter sncc and three on missions. 

All of the music in the tea'chcrs'- ijuatrterly parts has been retained in the 
same order and numbering J^^SOFiginallv published, with much additional 
music, the shorter pieces b^ifti^'tr^sertVd 'in vhe text, the rest indicated numer- 
ically. The musical selections will be found varied, particularly pleasing, and 
within the range of children's voices. A few extra pieces of music not in- 
cluded in the Orders of Service will afford opportunity for choice, if desired. 
The Round Tables and list of Musical and Teachers' Helps have been pre- 
pared especially for each of the two manuals. 

The arrangement of recitations and music need not be literally followed : the 
several Orders of Service may be easily changed or adapted to any particular 
occasion ; or may form a basis of fresh programs at the option of teachers, 
with omissions or additions as may be desired. 

The editor takes pleasure in saying that these manuals are the product 
of painstaking and conscientious effort on the part of the authors, whose 
wide experience as practical teachers has given them such appreciation of the 
needs of their coworkers in the departments as to render the work especially 
valuable. 



INTERNATIONAL GRADED 
SUNDAY-SCHOOL LESSONS 



PRIMARY COURSE 



The Primary Graded Lessons^Tajj-j-i, to.' ori^g-tli^'^Mttle children into touch 
with the evidences of our heaveril)^. '^gtHer's \!are, .ffie^expression of the feeling 
of gratitude and thanksgiving thus ii]s,pired, ;pjici«of God's' great love for us as 
shown in the gift of his Son — Jesus Xvlirist." '''.•"' '! '" 

From these stories the child sho|tfcf g;anj„cl.eap ^iqipressions of mother and 
child-love, parental care mirrored ./in!; "the d'ifel'&SUKs t)irds and animals; the 
child in whom the mother-love a?nd God-love'' tneet, the promptings of the 
human heart in view of God's care, and God's heart-promptings in view 
of our needs. 

With this combination we create spiritual atmospheres where the unfolding 
life of the little child finds its truest spirit-nurture. With our timely help the 
child's religious instincts are changed into insight ; the feelings are stimulated 
and directed into proper channels of activity, thus increasing the natural 
power of right seeing, thinking, and doing. 



Program Suggestions 



The most helpful things are those that inspire teachers to help themselves. 
The given outline of a general working plan will simplify for the teacher the 
arrangement of special programs adapted to changes of topics, seasons, and 
special days. Special songs and verses that are suggested will give oppor- 
tunity for personal choice and adaptation of program material to special 
groups of children. 

The primary program should be simple, informal, and elastic. Changes 
should be made when necessary to give variety or adapt to the conditions 
above mentioned. There is a divine order and sequence of thought in pro- 
gram work that is vital in all teaching. Spontaneity in action, song, and story 
is desirable in teacher and program. The program supplies, in large part, the 

4 



PRIMARY TEACHERS' MANUAL 

child's spiritual atmosphere, music being its chief element. Teach the songs 
by using them frequently, artistically, as a musical form of thought illustration ; 
avoid formal drill. 

Arrange all plans and accessories before the session. Let each assistant 
understand the general plan and her special part. Calmness and quietness 
should characterize all conditions of the work as being vital to interest and 
impression. Inspire each child to do his or her part, and demonstrate the 
beauty of unity in action. In program construction the child's need is the 
law of the teacher's supplies. 



Concerning Promotion Day 



The last Sunday in September is preferred with Graded Lessons. 

The pupils should be promoted while teachers remain in a grade department. 

A public service is desirable, to which parents and friends are invited. 

Decorations in elementary colors (green and white) are appropriate. 

An exhibit of pupils' work should be arranged. 

In all cases leaders should state to the audience that the program is built 
upon the lessons taught during the year. 

Certificates may be given from grade to grade, and a diploma tied with 
ribbon upon promotion from a department. 

Teachers can use the whole or part of each program, according to the 
size of the class. 

Age, ability, development, and a reasonable amount of grade work accom- 
plished should be considered in promoting pupils. 

If promotion occurs on Children's Day, the summer work is important, and 
should be continued through September, so that the work of a new grade may 
begin with October. 

It is suggested that the music should be taught to the children through the 
year as part of their weekly work, a little at a time, and not be left to a short 
time before promotion. 

The object in the programs for promotion is to found them on lessons 
of the year that will not conflict with the programs for special seasons. The 
program on " Father's Care " can be readily adapted by the teacher for 
Promotion Day.

Recitation. 



Recitation. 



Great, wide, wonderful, beautiful world. 
With the wonderful water about you curled, 
And the wonderful grass upon your breast; 
World, you are beautifully dressed. 

The wonderful air is over me. 
The wonderful wind is shaking the tree; 
It walks on the water, and turns the mills, 
And talks to itself on the tops of the hills. 



I saw the different things you did, 
But always you yourself you hid ; 
I felt you push ; I heard you call ; 
I could not see yourself at all. 
O wind, a-blowing all day long ! 
O wind, that sings so loud a song ! 



Recitation. 



God, who made both you and me, 
Sends the wind we cannot see, 
Though we hear it blow and sing; 
God takes care of everything. 

Everything on earth that lives, 
Each and all God's care receives; 
Thanks and praise to him we sing; 
God takes care of everything. 



Sunbeams dancing all around, 
Raindrops falling to the ground, 
Wind that blows, and nests that swing- 
God takes care of everything. 

Father, mother, babies dear. 
All the children everywhere ; 
Thanks and praise we'll sweetly sing, 
God takes care of everything. 

—M. C. B.

Recitation. 

I'm only a little sparrow, 

A bird of low degree; * 
My life is of little value, 

But the dear Lord cares for me. 

I know there are many sparrows, 
All over the world we're found ; 

But our heavenly Father knoweth 
When one of us falls to the ground. 



Though small, we are not forgotten ; 

Though weak, we are not afraid ; 
For we know that the dear Lord keepeth 

The life of the creatures he made. 

And I fold my wings at twilight, 

Wherever I happen to be ; 
For the Father is always watching. 

And no harm will come to me. 



Recitation. 



Recitation. 



Round about us, like the sunshine. 
Is our heavenly Father's care ; 

Warming, brightening, helping, blessing; 
God himself is everywhere. 

In the daylight, in the darkness, 
We will trust our Father's care; 

O'er his children safe watch keeping; 
God himself is everywhere. 



God is near me all the day. 
In my work, and in my play. 
Loving me in every way ; 
He cares for me. 



God is near me all the night, 
When the stars are shining bright. 
Keeps me safe till morning light ; 
He cares for me. 



God is near me when I pray. 
Hearing every word I say ; 
I will love him and obey; 
He cares for me.

many years ?

And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea ; 
Even there shall thy hand lead me, 
And thy right hand shall hold me. 

Recitation. 

How strong and sweet my Father's care, 
That round about me, like the air. 
Is with me always, everywhere ! 
He cares for me. 

Teacher. Do you remember about the long journey the children of Israel took? 

All. The heavenly Father was with them in the pillar of cloud and fire. 

Recitation. 

See the cloudy pillar Through the darkness shining, 
Coming from above. See it onward move. 

Telling of our Father's care. Calling, " Follow, children. 
Saying, "God is love." Follow; God is love." 

Class. " What time I am afraid I will put my trust in thee." 

Teacher. When Jacob went on a lonely journey, God sent him a beautiful 
dream, and said to him : 

Class. " I am with thee, and will keep thee whithersoever thou goest."

Class. " They came to Elim, where were twelve springs of water, and threescore 
and ten palm trees : and they encamped there by the waters." 

Teacher. Once more the children of Israel sought in vain for water. They 
complained to Moses, who cried unto Jehovah for help. What was he 
told to do? 

Girls. " Jehovah said to Moses, Pass on before the people, and thy rod take in 
thy hand, and go." 

Boys. (God said) "Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in 
Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of 
it, that the people may drink." 

All. " Moses did so, and he called the name of the place Massah."

First child. 



Second child. 



No birds singing in the treetop ; 

No fish swimming in the sea ; 
No lambs playing in the meadow; 

Think how this would be. 

Shining little raindrops 
Make the silver showers; 

Sparkling on the window. 
Sprinkling thirsty flowers. 

Dancing on the housetops. 
Falling down below, 

Giving life to all things, 
Everywhere you go. 



-M. C. B.

On this glad Thanksgiving Day; 
Ring, bells, ring ! 

Ring, bells, ring! 

High up in the steeple; 
Ring, bells, ring ! 

Calling to the people. 
For the fruitful fields of grain. 
Waving over hill and plain. 
We will thank our Lord again ; 
Ring, bells, ring! 

Second child. To and fro the church bells swing, 

In the steeple high, 
Hear them while they loudly sing. 

Underneath the sky. 
Ding, dong, ding, the great bells ring. 

Calling, This is Sunday morning, ding, dong, ding! 
Ding, dong, ding, the great bells ring, 
Hear them loudly calling in the morning. 

— Will. E. Hoivard.

i6 : II, and 17 : 15.) 

First hoy. "When the Philistine saw David, he disdained him; for he was but 
a youth, and ruddy and of a fair countenance." 

Second hoy. " David said unto Saul, Thy servant was keeping his father's 
sheep ; and when there came a lion or a bear, and took a lamb out of 
the flock, I went out after him, and smote him, and delivered it out of his 
mouth ; and when he arose against me, I caught him by his beard, and 
smote him and slew him." 

Music. " Lux Eoi." No. 57. 

Recitation. (Finger play.) 

This is the meadow where all the day long, 
Ten little frolicsome lambs are at play. 

These are the measures the good farmer brings 
Salt in, and corn meal, and other good things. 

This is the lambkin's own big water-trough ; 
" Drink, little lambkins, and then scamper off." 

These are the big shears to shear the old sheep; 
Dear little lambkins their soft wool may keep.

This is the rack where in winter they feed; 
Hay makes a very good dinner indeed. 

Here, with its big double doors shut so tight, 
This is the barn where they all sleep at night. 

— Emilie Poiilson. 
Recitation. 

Creeping here, creeping there, Day is gone, night is come. 

Comes the green grass growing; Darkness round it falling; 

Food for sheep, food for lambs, Lovingly, tenderly. 

Ere the winter snowing. Hear the shepherd calling. 

Raining here, raining there. Calling here, calling there. 

In the brown earth sinking, " Sheep-0 ! Sheep-O ! Sheep-0 ! " 

Water pure, water clear. In the fold, safe from cold, 

Everywhere for drinking. Little lambs may sleep, O ! 

Here a stone, there a stone, Lambs and sheep fast asleep; 

Working all together. Comes the soft night creeping; 

Build a fold for the sheep, Overhead, o'er their bed. 

Ere the stormy weather. Stars their bright watch keeping. 

—M. C. B.

(Teacher will explain that while David greatly feared his king, as shown 
in Lesson II, we need have no fear of our King.) 

First child. Young David greatly feared the king; 

He asked the Lord in prayer 
To keep him safely from all harm, 
In his strong", loving care. 

Second child. I'm thinking of One, 

So gentle and kind. 
That even a child need not fear him ; 

He came from above 

To teach us to love; 
He helps everyone who comes near him. 

Third child. Hear, O Father ; hear our prayer ; 

Bless the children of thy care, 
Everywhere, everywhere. 

When awake or sleeping, 
In the dark or in the light, 
In thy ever-watchful sight. 
Every day, every night, 

In thy holy keeping. 

Music. " He Shall Lead Us." No. 3. 

First child. The Lord is my Shepherd, and I am his lamb, 

His strong arm my shelter shall be ; 
On his loving breast I safely may rest; 
My Jesus, he loveth me. 

Second child. What a friend I have in Jesus ! 

He is gentle, kind, and good; 
Everything I need he gives me. 
Home and friends and daily food. 

Jesus loved me ere I knew him ; 

I his little lamb would be. 
In his tender care enfolded. 

Loving him, who first loved me ! — M. C. B. 

Closing prayer. Thanking the heavenly Father for our Shepherd,

Recitation. ^, , , .. , , . 

Oh, what a beautiful day it was. 

That Christmas day, so long ago, 
Though there wasn't a single Christmas tree, 

Nor even one little drift of snow, 
In the far-off land of Palestine, 

The land where the olive and fig tree grow. 

But out in the fields that blessed night 
The sheep lay sleeping, peaceful and still, 

And the shepherds sat by their quiet flocks 
And watched, while over a distant hill 

One star in the east shone marvelous, bright. 
Seeming the very heavens to fill. 

It was the angels sang that night, 

And the lowly shepherds, wondering, heard; 

They saw above them the glorious light, 
And then, with many a whispered word. 

They left their flock asleep on the hill, 
Aftd wandered to where the city stirred. 

And what did they see when they reached the place? 

A hillside stable, a rude ox-stall, 
A fair young mother whose saintly face 

Bent over her baby ; and that was all. 

— The Independent. 

And lo ! through him was given 
Our song to earth and heaven, 
The song two worlds together sing upon a Christmas day: 
" Glory to God ; Good will to men ! " 
Oh, listen ! Wake it once again ! 
" Peace upon earth ! Good will to men ! " 

Music. "In the Field with Their Flocks Abiding," No. 12; or "While Stars 
of Christmas Shine," No. 28. 

Teacher. Who afterward came to see Jesus ? 

Recitation. 

Lo, travelers enter Bethlehem's gate, 

Arrived from some far distant land ; 
They seem to be of high estate, 

And hold rich presents in their hand.

Recitation. 



PRIMARY TEACHERS' MANUAL 

They swiftly pass from street to street, 

Nor need they fear to go astray, 
Nor need they ask the men they meet, 

To guide them on their unknown way. 

For see, there shines a beauteous star; 

On it they fix their joyful eyes; 
That heavenly guide has led them far, 

And now it lightens Bethlehem's skies. 

But lo, it stops — its course is done ; 

On Mary's roof it sheds a light ; 
Enter; there dwells God's blessed Son — 

Enter; enjoy the glorious sight. 

But where is he, the Lord of all. 

Who made the heavens, and earth, and seas ? 

Behold him there, an infant small. 
Lying upon his mother's knees. 

Their Lord full well the strangers know, 

And humbly worship at his feet; 
Joyful their golden treasures show. 

And give their precious spices sweet. — Peep of Day. 

Teacher. When Herod told the wise men to seek Jesus, and then come and tell 
him, did they do it? 

Class. The wise men did not return ; for God warned them in a dream not to 
return to Herod. 

Teacher. When Herod saw that he was mocked of the wise men, what did 
he do? 

Class. " Herod sent forth, and slew all the male children that were in Bethle- 
hem from two years old and younger." 

Teacher. How was Jesus saved? 

Class. " An angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying. Arise 
and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be 
thou there until I tell thee, for Herod will seek the young child to destroy 
him." 

Teacher. How long did Jesus remain in Egypt? 

Class. " When Herod was dead, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to 
Joseph in Egypt, saying, Arise and take the young child and his mother, 
and go into the land of Israel."

Recitation. xhe moon shone bright that Christmas night, 

And silvered all around; 
The air was cold, and crisp the snow 
That covered thick the ground. 

And while the bells from here and there 

Were pealing forth their chime, 
The world seemed bright, and all delight 

In the glad Christmastime. 

A little maid had crossed my path, " I'll go within the great church door, 

And oh ! so poorly clad ; As you go bravely in, 

But then I knew 'twas more than cold And hide behind the pillar there. 

That made her face so sad. Hark ! now they say, ' Begin.' " 

And then she sank to hide her rags, 

While music filled the place, 
And happy children, as they sang. 

Saw not the tear-stained face. 

The song, so sweet, told of a Child And as she heard the story sweet, 

That in a manger came; • She took it all within. 

It was the Babe of Bethlehem, And said, " O Babe of Bethlehem, 

Whom angels did acclaim. Be thou my kith and kin." 

And with that thought the world seemed bright, 

For this some way she knew, 
That those who love the Lamb of God, 

Would love poor children too. —Mary Hayes Rood. 

Teacher. Are we only to think of the gifts that we receive? 

Recitation. What does Christmas mean to you, 

My pretty lass with eyes so blue? 
A doll, a book, a ribbon, a ring. 
That this day of gifts is going to bring? 
A feast, with games and song and fun, 
Where you are ever the foremost one? 
A time when all is merry and gay — 
Is this the meaning of Christmas Day? 

What does Christmas mean to you. 
My frank-faced lad. with brow so true? 
A holiday full of gifts and toys. 
And jolly fun with the other boys?

A frolic the freest of all the year, 
A table heaped with the best of cheer, 
And skating, or snow, or hearty play — 
Is this the meaning of Christmas Day ? 

Ah, bright are the hours of this happy time, 

And gay is the ring of the Christmas chime, 

Yet through it all must whisper still, 

" Glory to God, to men good will." 

And in every heart of girl or boy 

Must be the holy Christmas joy 

Before we can gladly and truly say, 

" I have learned the meaning of Christmas Day." 

E'er since the great stars' shining. 
E'er since the angels' singing. 
E'er since the wise men's seeking 
Of " Bethlehem's cradle throne," 
O'er all the wide, wide world

Teacher. When was the Christ-Child first brought to the house of worship ? 

Class. " Mary and Joseph brought him up to Jerusalem, to present him to 
the Lord, and to offer a sacrifice, a pair of turtle-doves or two young 
pigeons." 

Recitation. 

A little child with beaming eye 

Was to the temple brought, 
Where holy men before the Lord 

Their sacred service wrought; 
With glad thanksgiving voices raised, 

They blessed the Babe divine ; 
Now is salvation come to us, 

This is the Father's sign. — Adeline Beery. 

Teacher. Who else praised God for the child who was brought into the temple ? 

Class. " There was one Anna, a prophetess, and coming up at that very hour, 
she gave thanks unto God." 

Music. " O Come, x^ll Ye Faithful." No. 64. 

Class. "The child grew, and became strong, filled with wisdom; and the grace 
of God was upon him." 

Legend of Saint Christopher 

Teacher or Assistant. Once upon a time there was a giant named Offerus. 
He was large and strong, and lived alone near a big river. Offerus 
determined to live on the bank and carry people over, for the river was 
wide and deep. He pulled up a big palm tree, and when anyone wanted 
to cross he took it in his hand, put the person on his shoulders, and 
waded over. 

One stormy night he wakened from his sleep, thinking that a child was 
calling him. " Offerus ! Offerus ! Carry me over ! Carry me over ! " 
He went outside of his hut but could not see anyone. A second time he 
wakened and heard the same cry. Again he went out but could not 
see anyone. No sooner had he gone to sleep than he heard the third 
time the child say: "Offerus! Offerus! Carry me over! Carry me 
over ! " 

Then he lighted his lantern and hunted up and down the banks until 
he found a little child in the dark and rain, who said plaintively: " Offerus! 

31 



PRIMARY TEACHERS' MANUAL 

Offerus ! Carry me over," He lifted the child on his shoulders, and 
stepped into the water, holding the palm tree. But the child grew heavier 
and heavier, and the strong giant feared that he would sink. He held 
tightly to the palm tree, and when he reached the other side he gently 
put the child down and said: "Who art thou, child? If I had carried the 
whole world on my shoulders it would not have been heavier." 

The child answered, " To-night thou hast carried over the Christ- 
Child. In helping the weak thou hast helped me. Thou shall be called 
Christofferus, which means the ' Christ-bearer.' " 

Then the Christ-Child slipped away, and though the weather was 
wintry and cold, as Christopher leaned upon the tree it took root and 
bore leaves and ripe dates on its branches. 



Recitation. 



Gentle, holy Jesus, 

Saviour meek and mild; 
Thou, who once wast fashioned 

Like a little child ; 



And in grace and meekness 
Up to manhood grew ; 

Sharing human weakness. 
Human sorrow too. 



In thy word so holy, 
Saviour, we can see. 

That of us thou sayest, 
" Let them come to me." 



Glad we come and render 
All we have to give; 

While our hearts are tender, 
Help us, Lord, to live." 



— Emma Whitfield. 



Class. " Thou shalt call his name Jesus, for it is he that shall save his people 
from their sins." 



Prayer. 



With joyful voice we praise Thee; 

For his lowly birth, and his rest in the manger, 

For the pure tenderness of his mother, Mary, 

For the fatherly care that protected him. 

For the Providence that saved the holy Child 

To be the Saviour of the world.

Recitation. 



In the spring the flowers awaken, 

Waken from their winter's sleep ; 
They say to us, " Look up, dear children, 

God forever watch doth keep." 

— Primary and Junior Songs. 

Brave and bold Sir Robin Redbreast 

Came to town one day. 
Dressed up in a vest of scarlet 

And a coat of gray. 
Bold Sir Robin chirped quite gaily. 

He was proud, you see. 
For there was. no other birdie 

Dressed so well as he. 



" How I wish the flowers would waken. 

They are late this spring; 
I will call them," and Sir Robin 

Loudly starts to sing: 
" Blossoms ! Blossoms ! You are lazy ! 

Don't you know 'tis spring? 
Wake up, flowers, and see my red vest — 

Such a pretty thing." 

Just then Robin heard a purring. 

"Gracious! what is that? 
If I am not much mistaken, 

It sounds like a cat." 
Bold Sir Robin ceased his singing, 

Flew to treetop nigh ; 
Even there he was quite frightened — 

Cats can climb so high. 

How he wished his dress of scarlet 

Were of duller tone, 
So the cat could not espy him 

In the treetop lone ! 

37 



PRIMARY TEACHERS' MANUAL 

Trembling, fearing, watching, peering, 

On the bough he sat; 
How his httle neck he twisted 

Looking for that cat. 

Suddenly he hears beneath him 

Peals of laughter gay, 
And some soft and gentle voices 

Cry in merry way : 
" Robin, oh, you foolish Robin ! 

Come, oh, come and sing, 
We are only pussy-willows 

Waking up the spring." — Mary Canncy.

Birds sing their songs in the leafy bowers; 
The bees are hovering above the flowers; 
The life of spring makes glad the hours. 
Loud let the children sing ! 

For life is given to the bird and bee, 
But a higher life to you and me; 
Then shout for joy! life's beauty see; 
'Tis the gift of God, our King. 

Thus to the love of God in heaven. 
The God who made both you and me; 

The praise of all things here is given, 
And evermore shall be.

Rise, for the bluebird is flying this way; 
Rise, Easter voices are calling to-day; 
Rise, little blossoms, rise ! " — M. C. B.

And the Lord was led away 

By a band of cruel soldiers, 
From the rulers sent that day.

Then upon a cross they lift him, 

Just outside the city gate, 

Joseph's rock-hewn tomb received him, 
But he triumphed o'er his foes; 

Lo ! he burst the tomb asunder. 
And in majesty arose.

There's always work in plenty for little hands to do, 
Something waiting every day that none may try but you; 
Little burdens you may lift, happy steps that you can take, 
Heavy hearts that you may comfort for the blessed Saviour's sake. 

Second child. 

There's room for children's service in this busy world of ours; 
We need them as we need the birds, and need the summer flowers; 
And their help at task and toiling the church of God may claim, 
And gather little flowers in Jesus' holy name. 

Third child. 

There are words for little lips, sweetest words of hope and cheer; 
They will have the spell of music for many a tired ear; 
Don't you wish your gentle words might lead some soul to look above. 
Finding rest and peace and guidance in the dear Redeemer's love ? 

Fourth child. 

There are orders meant for you, swift and jubilant they ring; 
Oh, the l)Iiss of being trusted on the errands of the King! 
Fearless march in royal service ; not an evil can befall 
Those who do the gracious bidding, hasting at the Master's call. 

Fifth child. 

There are songs which children only are glad enough to sing, 
Songs that are as full of sunshine as the sunniest hours of spring.

In the old, old days.

There is no sweeter story told 

In all the blessed book, 
Than how the Lord within his arms 

The little children took. 



And closer to his loving self 
Our human hearts are brought, 

When for the little children's sake, 
Love's sweetest spell is wrought. 



For their young eyes his sorrowing face 

A smile of gladness wore, 
A smile that for his little ones, 

It weareth evermore.

the cross? 

Class. " When Jesus saw his mother, and the disciple standing by whom he 
loved, he saith unto his mother : Woman, behold thy son ! Then saith he 
to the disciple. Behold thy mother ! And from that hour, the disciple 
took her unto his own home."

Who sat and watched my head, When pain and sickness made me cry, 

When sleeping on my cradle-bed. Who gazed upon my heavy eye. 

And tears of sweet affection shed ? And wept for fear that I should die ? 
My mother. My mother. 

Who ran to lift me when I fell. 
And would some pretty story tell, 
Or kiss the place to make it well ? 
My mother. 

Who taught my infant lips to pray, And can I ever cease to be 

And love God's holy book and day. Affectionate and kind to thee. 

And walk in wisdom's pleasant way? Who was so very kind to me, 
My mother. My mother? 

Ah, no ! the thought I cannot bear. 
And if God please my life to spare, 
I hope I shall reward thy care. 
My mother.

Take an ear of yellow corn, and then rub, rub, rub, 
Till the kernels rattle off from the nub, nub, nub; 
Then put them in a popper made of wire, wire, wire. 
And put the little popper o'er the fire, fire, fire;

Turn the snow into a dish, for it's done, done, done, 
Now pass it 'round and eat, for that's fun, fun, fun. 

Recitation. (Teacher will show apple-seed while a child recites.) 

I know a little brown wonder-box, 
That only opens when the south wind knocks. 
It holds a thousand leaves folded tight; 
It holds a thousand blossoms pink and white ; 
It holds a tree with branches complete. 
And fruit that is golden, juicy, and sweet: 
And all the fruit holds, tightly packed down, 
More and more boxes tiny and brown.

'Tis God our heavenly Father And then he leaves us our part. 

Who makes each little seed. To seek that plant within, 

And puts away within it " So when we add our work to his, 

The tiny plant we need. We find what is therein.

Plant the seed in the earth. 
Sun and rain give it birth : 
Up it comes, like a horn; 
Soon the blade greets the morn; 
Climbs the stalk toward the sky.

On the stalk forms the ear, 
Food for all growing here; 
Corn for food, some for seed; 
God gives corn for our need.

We have a part in God's great plan. 
So let us do the best we can. 
To guard our hearts and lives so well 
That only right in them shall dwell. 

Let all we touch and hear and see, 
Help us each day more pure to be; 
It pleases him when we are strong 
To choose the right and shun the wrong. 

There are many kinds of sin; 
We need to pray for strength to win ; 
To watch the gates and take good care 
That nothing harmful enters there. 

Teacher. (Read the pledge of the Rechabites:) "I set before the sons of 
the house of the Rechabites bowls full of wine, and cups; and I said unto 
them, Drink ye wine. But they said, We will drink no wine; for Jonadab, 
the son of Rechab, our father, commanded us, saying, Ye shall drink no 
wine, neither ye, nor your sons, forever. And we have obeyed the 
voice of Jonadab the son of Rechab, our father, all our days, we, our 
wives, our sons, and our daughters."

More to buy with, more to sell ; 
More of comfort, less of care; 
More to eat, and more to wear; 
Happier homes with faces brighter;

Conscience clean and minds much stronger; 
Debts much shorter, purses longer; 
Hopes that drive away all sorrow;

It is time to be brave, it is time to be true.

It is time to put by the dream and the sigh. 
And work for the cause that is holy and high. 
It is time to be kind, it is time to be sweet. 
To be scattering roses for somebody's feet; 
It is time to be sowing, it is time to be growing, 
It is time for the flowers of life to be blowing.

promise on your word of honor that I may do so."

PRIMARY TEACHERS* MANUAL 

Recitation. Perchance some fable, but more truth 

Lurks in this story of a youth 
Who, Hving in a cabin rude, 
Hard by a lonely solitude, 
Let in a lion's cub one day. 
That from its dam had strayed away. 

A pretty pet, and playful quite. 
It frisked and gamboled with delight; 
From the boy's hand it often fed, 
And slept beside him in his bed, 
Patting his cheek with velvet paws. 
Not yet aware that they held claws. 

Fed well each day with wholesome food. 
The cub grew fast to lionhood. 
One day on provocation slight, 
It turned with all a lion's might, 
And slew the boy; then from the door. 
His body to a jungle bore. 

And in a cruel, angry mood, 
Devoured the friend that gave him food. 
For every guileless, thoughtless youth 
This story hath a wholesome truth. 
Guard well your hearts, and let not in 
The weakest vice, the smallest sin; 

For evil ways and habits wrong 

Soon rival wild beasts fierce and strong. 

When, like a vagrant gipsy race. 

They make young hearts their camping-place. 

They tear their victims and destroy, 

As the grown lion tore the boy. 

Teacher. " King Nebuchadnezzar ordered brought before him youths in whom 
there was no blemish, and who would have ability to stand in the king's 
palace, and learn the tongue of the Chaldeans. And the king appointed 
for them a daily portion of the king's dainties, and of the wine which he 
drank, and that they should be nourished three years; that at the end 
thereof they should stand before the king." 



Class. " But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with 

ane 

59 



the king's dainties nor with the wine which he drank." 



PRIMARY TEACHERS' MANUAL 



Teacher. " The keeper said unto Daniel, I fear my lord the king, who hath 
appointed your food and your drink : for why should he see your faces 
>vorse looking than the youths that are of your own age ? " 

Boys. " Then said Daniel to the steward. Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, 
ten days ; and let them give us pulse to eat, and water to drink. Then 
let our countenances be looked upon before thee." 

Teacher. " At the end of ten days their countenances appeared fairer, and 
they were fatter in flesh than all the youths that did eat of the king's 
dainties. So the steward took away their dainties, and wine that they 
should drink, and gave them pulse." 

Recitation. 

It was a true man among cruel men, 

Who before the king so bravely stood ; 

And was thrust into that dreadful lions" den. 

Because he dared to be brave and good. 

Oh, that every child here may remember each day, 

Whether clouds come or sunshine, whatever the weather. 

To be brave though lions stand in the way, 
Whenever they're playing or working together. 



Recitation. 



God gave me this good body 

To grow both strong and tall; 
Whatever harms my body 

I will not use at all. 
Like brave Daniel in the story, 
I'll do all things for God's glory. 
And every day I'll watch and pray, 
Lord, keep me pure and strong alway.

And the next time they can keep 
Up a little longer.

Many a blast that bowed her.

Habit at first is but a silken thread, 
Fine as the light-winged gossamers that sway 
In the warm sunbeams of a summer's day; 

A shallow streamlet, rippling o'er its bed; 

A tiny sapling ere its roots are spread; 
A yet unhardened thorn upon the spray ; 
A lion's cub, that has not scented prey ; 

A little smiling child, obedient led. 

Beware ! 



That thread may bind thee as a chain; 
That streamlet gather to a fatal sea; 
That sapling spread into a gnarled tree; 
That thorn, grown hard, may wound and give thee pain; 
That playful cub, his murderous fangs reveal ; 
That child, a giant, crush thee with his heel. 



Three bands of little children 
Together marched along; 

Their banners floated in the breeze, 
Their lips were gay with song. 



For they were little soldiers. 

Enlisted each to fight 
Against the foe, " King Alcohol,' 

And conquer if they might. 



They all were zealous in the cause. 
They knew no " can't " nor " fail "; 

To them there were no direful foes 
Before whom they might quail. 



Oh, may they never lose their zeal 
For this great cause of ours; 

And when to men and women grown, 
May they use all their powers 



To gather to the temperance fold 
Those who have gone astray, 

And lead the little ones to choose 
In life the better way. 



All. 



I am only one. 

But I am one ; 

I cannot do everything. 

But I can do something: 

And what I can do I ought to do ; 

And what I ought to do, 

By the grace of God 

I will do.

Should a servant idly wait. 
For fear, or love, or pleasure.

Prayer. 

Teacher. Why was David, the shepherd boy, not afraid of Goliath, the giant? 

Class. " I will fear no evil, for thou art with me." 

Teacher. To what nation did Goliath belong ? 

Class. Goliath was a Philistine, a nation that worshiped idols. 

Teacher. What are idols ? 

Recitation. (With motions.) 

Idols are the work of men's hands. 
They have mouths, but they speak not; 
Eyes have they, but they see not; 
They have ears, but they hear not; 
Noses have they, but they smell not; 
They have hands, but they handle not; 
Feet have they, but they walk not; 
Neither speak they through their throat. 
They that make them shall be like unto them; 
Yea, everyone that trusteth in them. 

Teacher. Are there those in the world to-day who worship idols? 

Class. Yes; all heathen nations worship idols. 

Recitation. 



Far off in heathen countries 

The little children pray 
To gods that cannot save them. 

Of wood, or stone, or clay. 
In happy Christian countries 

We learn to bow the knee 
To Father. Son. and Spirit. 

The blessed One in Three. 



O God, our gracious Father, 

In thy Son's name we pray, 
Send forth thy Christian heroes 

To hasten the glad day 
When of thy love the knowledge 

Shall spread from shore to shore. 
And those of every nation 

Shall thy great name adore.

PRIMARY TEACHERS' MANUAL 

Recitation. 

Here in this happy land we have the light 
Shining from God's own word free, pure, and bright. 
Shall we not send to them Bibles to read, 
Teachers, and preachers, and all that they need ? 

Recitation. 

Kind friends, we are glad that you've come here to-day, 
And if you will listen to what we shall say, 
You will not be surprised that we children delight 
To labor for Jesus, our Master. 

Far over the ocean, so far, far away. 
To where the bright sunbeams roll on with the day. 
And across to the East, where the poor heathen stay. 
There is work to be done for the Master. 

To the north, where the icy mountains appear, 
To the rock-bound capes of the south hemisphere. 
To the hearts of all heathendom, distant and near. 
We must send the good news of the Master, 

They ask for our offerings, they ask for our prayers, 
They ask that the light of the gospel be theirs. 
They ask that with Jesus they may be made heirs, 
Joint heirs, with Jesus, our Master. 

Then we'll cheerfully answer to all the demands 
That are made for the labor of our weak hands. 
For we know our Father in readiness stands 
To bless our work for the Master. 

Teacher. We have heard of those who are doing work for the Master in far- 
away lands; these missionaries are working in our place; our offerings 
send and keep them. Often they suffer persecution, as did the three 
Hebrew children in the fiery furnace, and because of their faithfulness we 
call them " Heroes of the Cross." 

Music. " Dare to Do Right." No. 36. 

Recitation. 

There was a little Hindu girl. 

She was about so tall (measuring). 
Each morning she had rice to eat. 
But did not eat it all. 
70 



PRIMARY TEACHERS' MANUAL 

Oh, no ! She took a little out, 

About so much, I think (holding out hand). 

And gave it to a wooden god 
That could not eat nor drink. 

She laid it down before his face. 
And said a little prayer (clasping hands); 

The idol could not see nor hear, 
For her he did not care. 

She did the very best she knew, 

'Twas what her mother taught her; 
She thought the idol, old and grim, 

Could help her little daughter. 

I want that little Hindu girl 
To love our Lord in glory (looking up). 

And I'll do all I can to help 
Send her " the old, old story." 

Teacher. The chief work of our missionaries is to tell the story of Jesus' love 
to those who do not know him, as did Peter, and Paul, and the other 
apostles who, though persecuted, beaten, and imprisoned, did not fear 
to preach and teach in his name. (Give incidents illustrative of mis- 
sionary heroism in the lives of such men as David Livingstone, Adoniram 
Judson, John G. Paton, Marcus Whitman, John Eliot. See " Heroes of 
Modern Missions"; "Men of Mark in Modern Missions.") 

Music. " The Son of God Goes Forth to War." No. 56. 

Prayer. 

Once again, dear Lord, we pray 
For the children far away, 
Who have never even heard 
Jesus' name, our sweetest word. 

Little lips that thou hast made. 
'Neath the far-off temple's shade. 
Give to gods of wood and stone 
Praise that should be all thy own. 

71 



PRIMARY TEACHERS' MANUAL 

Little hands whose wondrous skill 
Thou hast given to do thy will. 
Offerings bring, and serve with fear 
Gods that cannot see nor hear. 

Teach them, O thou heavenly King, 
All their gifts and praise to bring 
To thy Son, who died to prove 
Thy forgiving, saving love. 

(Have a number of children carrying the flags of foreign countries march to 
the platform, with, the American and Christian flags elevated or crossed in 
center. While they stand thus grouped let the other children in the room 
sing.) 

Music. " Onward, Christian Soldiers." No. 49. 

(Children on platform repeat) : 

There is no king but Jesus; 

The red, the black, the brown, 
The yellow, and the white man 

Shall tender him the crown. 
Sound forth the gospel message, 

Resounding let it ring; 
The whole round world shall conquered be 

For Christ our King. 

Teacher. " Blessing, and honor, and glory, and power be unto him that 
sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever."

With weary, drooping head 
To seek for rest.

couraged. What did Jesus tell them to do, and what lesson can we learn? 

Recitation. ^ , , .„ 

1 rust to your nets and not to your skill, 

Trust to the royal Master's will ;

And the King's own word comes over the sea, 

Let down your nets for a draught from me. 

Teacher. What help did Jesus give to Bartimeus? 



Recitation. 



Blind Bartimeus at the gates 

Of Jericho in darkness waits; 

He hears the crowd ; he hears a breath 

Say, " It is Christ of Nazareth ! " 

And calls, in tones of agony, 

" Jesus, have mercy upon me ! " 

8o 



PRIMARY TEACHERS' MANUAL 

The thronging multitudes increase ; 
" BHnd Bartimeus, hold thy peace ! " 
But still, above the noisy crowd, 
The beggar's cry is shrill and loud; 
Until they say, " He calleth thee ! 
Take hope, arise, he calleth thee." 

Then saith the Christ, as silent stands 
The crowd, " What wait thou at my hands ? " 
The man replies : " Oh, give me light ! 
Rabbi, restore the blind man's sight! " 
And Jesus answers, " Come to me; 
Thy childlike faith hath saved thee." 

Ye that have eyes, yet cannot see, 

In darkness and in misery 

Recall those mighty voices three : 

" Jesus, have mercy upon me ! " 

" Take hope, arise, and come to me ! " 

"Thy childlike faith hath saved thee." 

— LongfcUozv.

May know the Lord." 

Teacher. How did Jesus show his love for little children? 

Recitation. 

He smiled as he stretched out his arms in glad welcome. 
While little ones hastened to press 'round his knee. 

While he laid his kind hand on each little forehead, 
Saying, " Suffer little children to come unto me." 

F 8i 



PRIMARY TEACHERS* MANUAL 

He loved them e'en then, though his heart had much sadness. 

He loveth them still in their innocent glee; 
And still does he utter those words of sweet welcome, 

" Oh, suffer the children to come unto me. 
Send them not from my presence, the children ; I love them, 

And they shall be merry and joyous and free; 
But bring them where blessings from heaven are dropping. 

Oh, suffer the children to come unto me." 

Teacher. What young lad helped Jesus ? 

Recitation; or music, "Lord, When to Thee a Little Lad." No. i8. 

What if the little Jewish lad. 

That summer day, had failed to go 
Down to the lake, because he had 

So small a store of loaves to show? 

But to the lakeside forth he went. 

Bearing the scant supply he had; 
And Jesus, with his eyes intent 

Through all the crowds, beheld the lad ; 

And saw the loaves and blest them. Then 

Beneath his hand the marvel grew ; 
He brake and blest, and broke again. 

The loaves were neither small nor few; 

For, as we know, it came to pass 

That hungry thousands there were fed. 

While sitting on the fresh green grass. 
From that one basketful of bread. 

Teacher. How did Jesus help the disciples once in a time of storm? 

Recitation. ^, ,. . , . , -r i • t , 

1 he disciples, with Jesus their Lord, 

On the sea in a vessel were tossed ; 

As the winds loudly blew, and the waves rolled, 

Much they feared that all would be lost. 

Soon the water rushed into the boat; 

For the Master all eagerly look; 
On a pillow they find him asleep — 

Had the dear Lord his children forsook? 
82 



PRIMARY TEACHERS' MANUAL 

Ah, no; while he slept, he still thought 

Of their danger and bitter distress ; 
For his merciful eyes slumber not. 

But are watching his children to bless. 

To their prayers his ears are inclined; 

To the winds and the waves he's spoken, 
" Peace ! be still ! " and soon hushed is the wind, 

And the strength of the waves is broken. 

Teacher. Sad news came one day to Jesus. A little maid was very ill, and the 
father sent for Jesus to come to see her. 

Recitation. 

Hark ! 'tis a fatlier crying, The Saviour soon consented 

And this is what he saith : To come and heal the maid ; 

" My little daughter's lying Nor was he e'en prevented 

Just at the point of death." By hearing she was dead. 

He found the people weeping 

Because her breath was gone; 
And when he said, " She's sleeping," 

They laughed him to scorn. 

The Lord no sinful mocker, Ah ! see the maid arising, 
Would suffer to remain; According to his word; 

Then by the hand he took her. Does not the deed surprising 
And bade her rise again. Show Jesus to be Lord ? 

Teacher. What are the marching orders we have then, in summing up the 
lessons of the year? 

Recitation. -r^ , , tt- ,i i 

Ready to act when His call comes clear; 

Ready to answer him, " I am here " ; 

Ready to march when he bids you come ; 

Ready to go when he calls, " Come home."

Prayer by entire class.

Come, little children ; come and raise Sing of the wonders of his love, 

Your voice with one accord. Who with his own right arm 

Come, sing in joyful songs of praise Upholds and keeps you hour by hour. 

The glories of our Lord. And shields from every harm. 

Prayer. 

Teacher. In the first two years of our graded work we studied about many 
characters in the Old and New Testaments. Last year we learned about 
the judges who ruled Israel. In this year's work we learned of Israel as 
a kingdom, with Saul as the first king. Whom did Jehovah choose as his 
successor? 



Recitation. 



Good David, whose psalms have so often been sung. 

At first was not noble nor grand. 
But only a shepherd boy when he was young, 



Though afterward king of the land. 
84 



PRIMARY TEACHERS' MANUAL 

He tended his flocks in the pasture by day, 

And kept them in safety by night; 
And though a poor shepherd, he did not delay 

To do what was holy and right. 

For while he sat watching his sheep in the fold, 

To guard them from danger abroad. 
It then was his greatest delight, we are told. 

To think on the works of the Lord. 

When ready for battle Goliath appeared. 

Young David first offered to go; 
He knew that his God, whom he trusted and feared, 

Would help him to conquer the foe. 

In war and in fighting he had not been skilled. 

Yet ventured to meet him alone ; 
And this mighty giant he presently killed 

With only a sling and a stone. 

Teacher. David did a great work, but had many hard experiences. What 
caused his troubles? 

Class. Saul was jealous of him, and tried to kill him, and David had to hide. 

Teacher. Who became David's best friend ? 

Class. " Jonathan, the son of Saul, truly loved David." 

Teacher. David and his men many times suffered for food; they never stole; 
they tried to help the farmers save their sheep. Can you tell the name of 
one man who was rich whom David helped? 

Class. Nabal was the man, and Abigail was his wife. 

Teacher. What happened? 

Class. When Nabal sheared his sheep he made a great feast, but forgot what 
David had done for him. 

First child. David sent ten young men to ask Nabal for food. 

Second child. Nabal said: "Who is David? Shall I take my bread, and water, 
and the flesh I have killed, and give to him?" 

Third child. Then David was angry, and planned to kill Nabal. 

Fourth child. But one of the servants told Abigail, who went to David with 
bread and wine and raisins and cake. 

All. " David said. Blessed be Jehovah the God of Israel, who sent thee this day 
to meet me."

PRIMARY TEACHERS' 



MANUAL 



Teacher. What would you call Abigail ? 

Class. Abigail was a " peacemaker." 

Teacher. After David became king, what did he plan to do ? 

Class. David planned to build a temple for worship. 

Teacher. What did David say? 

All. " Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise. 



Music. " We love thy house, O God."

Teacher. Long afterward, who chose to do the right thing always? 
All. Daniel and his three friends chose the right. 
Teacher. Who made an image of gold, and what did he order? 
Class. Nebuchadnezzar made an image of gold and ordered all to worship it. 
Teacher. Who disobeyed, and what followed? 
Class. The king cast them into a fiery furnace. 
Teacher. What fourth figure appeared in the flames? 
Class. A figure like the Son of God. 

Teacher. God showed his love for these three young men; how has he shown 
his love to us? 

Class. He sent Jesus Christ to be our Saviour. 

86 



PRIMARY TEACHERS' MANUAL 



Teacher. We have heard of Abigail, the peacemaker. Jesus preached a 
sermon in which he referred to the peacemaker. What do we call that 
part of the Sermon on the Mount? 

Class. That part of the Sermon on the Mount is called the Beatitudes. 

(Just here have those who are to be promoted recite the Beatitudes. Some 

may prefer to sing only the chorus of this hymn.) 

Music. " Angry Words." No. i6. 

Teacher. Jesus came to show us the Father's love. What help did he give to a 
sick man ? 

Recitation. 

Beside the pool of Bethesda, " No help, no hope is offered 

I hear a mournful cry : To one so weak as I." 

Class. " Jesus said unto him. Arise, take up thy bed, and walk." 

Teacher. Jesus had many busy days ; especially one at Capernaum. What did 

he do? 
Recitation. 

He the sick to health restored; Even children had a share 

To the poor he preached the word ; Of his tender love and care. 

Teacher. Jesus knew that the Father wanted us to go to him for help. What 
prayer did he teach us? 

Music. " Our Father, who art in heaven."

PR-IMARY TEACHERS' MANUAL 

Teacher. God sent Jesus to save us; just before his death, where did he meet 
the disciples, and what lesson can we learn from it? 



Recitation. 

When the sad hour was almost come 

That Jesus must depart, 
He gathered in an upper room 

Those nearest to his heart. 

Ah, great was their astonishment. 
When, rising from his seat. 

Upon the floor he lowly bent 
To wash his servants' feet. 

Music. " I love them that love me." 



Beside the board again he sat, 
And thus expressed his mind: 

" If I, your Lord, upon you wait, 
Oh, should not you be kind ? 

" Oh, let the love that I have shown. 

By you remembered be; 
And by your love let it be known 

That you belong to me."

Teacher. Jesus was in the tomb only a short time, when he arose. How long 
was it before his ascension? 

Class. Jesus came to the disciples during forty days, until he ascended into 
heaven. 

Teacher. We are often anxious to know about heaven. Will one of you tell 
us the different ideas some young people have of heaven? 



Recitation. 



The lesson hour was nearly past, 
When I asked of my scholars seven, 

" Now tell me, each one, please, in turn, 
What sort of a place is heaven ? " 

" Oh, meadows, flowers, and lovely trees ' 
Cried poor little North Street Kitty; 

While Dorothy, fresh from country lanes, 
Was sure it was a " great big city ! " 



88 



PRIMARY TEACHERS' MANUAL 

Bessie, it seemed, had never thought 

Of the home beyond the river; 
She simply took each perfect gift. 

And trusted the loving Giver. 

Then up spoke Edith, tall and fair — 

Her voice was clear and ringing 
As she led in the Easter anthem choir — 

" In heaven they're always singing." 

To Esther, clad in richest furs, 

'Twas a place for " outdoor playing " ; 
But Bridget drew her thin shawl close, 

For " warmth and food " she was praying. 

The desk-bell rang. But one child left, 

My sober, thoughtful Florry, 
" Why, heaven just seems to me a place — 

A place — where you're never sorry." 

Teacher. During Jesus' life he called Peter to do special messenger work lur 
him. Tell us something about Peter, 

Class. Peter was a fisherman ; he left his work and followed Jesus. Peter tried 
to walk on the water to Jesus, but his faith failed. Peter denied Jesus. 

Recitation. 

When Peter sat within the hall. His sorrowing Master turned his head. 

To see what should his Lord befall, And by his looks he sweetly said : 
He said he never knew the man, " Does Peter say he knows me not? 

And e'en to curse and swear began. Has Peter then my love forgot ? " 

— Peep of Day. 

Teacher. Jesus forgave Peter, and he did his work bravely after that. What 
happened to him when he was in prison ? 

Recitation. 

" Awake ! " the angel cries ; and from the hands 
Of wondering Peter fell the iron bands; 
The gates flew open of their own accord. 
And Peter is to liberty restored. 

His guide he follows through the gloom of night; 
Where angels are, there needs no other light; 
The angel's gone, and Peter, left alone. 
Sees and admires the love that God has shown. 

89 



PRIMARY TEACHERS' MANUAL 

At yonder gate he knocks ; thence prayer ascends, 
On this sad night, from Peter's sorrowing friends; 
With glad surprise the maiden hears his voice; 
All round him flock, and with one heart rejoice. 

Teacher. Peter the fisherman became a great and good man, whom Christian 
people love and honor. To whom did Jesus appear after his death, 
because he wanted him as a special messenger? 

Class. " Jesus appeared to Saul in a bright light, saying, Saul, Saul, why perse- 
cutest thou me ? " 

Teacher. To what was Saul's name changed? 

Class. Saul's name was changed to Paul; he is the first missionary named in 
the New Testament. 

Teacher. Ought we to be discouraged if we cannot do such great work as 
Paul did? 

Recitation. _. , ,., , 

If you cannot speak like angels. 

If you cannot preach like Paul, 

Try to help some weak one near you; 

Tell how Jesus died for all. 

Teacher. We come now to the last lesson in our primary grade. Can you tell 
us what it is? 

Class. " The two great commandments." 

Teacher. What are these commandments? 

Class. Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy 
soul, and with all thy mind. Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. 

Teacher. Who gave these commandments ? 

Class. Jesus Christ, the Son of God. 

Music. " The Two Commandments." No. 38. 

Announcement, by teacher, of those who have done the best work in lesson 
study, and presentation of certificates. 

Closing prayer. (A summary of the review.) Dear Jesus, help us to be 
loving and true ; keep us from angry words ; help us to be strong and brave 
and kind to all ; help us to honor God and to help the weak ; give us the 
missionary spirit; grant that we may keep thy commandments, for thy 
dear sake. Amen.

In the far-off tow - ers swinging, Hear the children's voic - es sing-ing. 

On each word the sweet tones dwelling, Soft and low, then loud - ly swell-ing. 

While its chimes are soft - ly playing. And all hearts with joy are pray-ing.

Pointers for Teachers of the New Graded Lessons 

1. Each of the series is progressive in plan and construction, and constitutes 
a distinct system easily comprehended and applied. 

2. The issuance of the several series in quarterly parts w^as not the original 
purpose, but became a necessity because of the shortness of time available for 
preparation of the complete work of the year in book form; a volume for each 
series w^ill be the plan followed later. 

3. Subscriptions for the teacher's book should, in every case, be made for a 
whole year, and not for a single quarterly issue. The first part of each year 
always contains important matter that is not, and will not be, repeated in any 
subsequent number, but which it is essential that every teacher should have, 
no matter when the new course may be started. 

4. The course in each grade may be commenced at any quarter by starting 
with the lesson indicated for that quarter ; but not in any case with any earlier 
lesson in the series. Any deviation from this fundamental rule will cause 
confusion and trouble. 

5. Subscriptions for the pupils' papers for each grade should be made only 
as required by each class, and should correspond with the period of introduc- 
tion of a given series. 

There will be no difficulty in following any of the Graded Courses if the 
above simple plan is strictly followed.
