This facsimile reproduction of beloved hymn writer Frances Ridley Havergal's children's devotional was originally published in 1881 by James Nisbet, & Co. (London), shortly after Miss Havergal's death.
Each of the thirty-one short chapters brings to light one among the many scriptural names of our Lord Jesus Christ. Parents and grandparents will enjoy sharing these devotional writings with their own "little ones"!
Excerpt from the Prefatory note to the reader from Maria V. G. Havergall, September 1879:
Just a week before my dear sister F. R. H. died, I took her letters upstairs.... She was too ill to care about her letters, but was so pleased to get the first page of this book. she looked at it carefully, and with her pencil corrected mistakes. Then she was anxious every reader should have space to add the verses, and asked me to write about it. May I say that she hoped you would read one chapter daily! My dear sister intended writing another book for you, Evening Stars; or, Promises for the Little Ones. But, though she is gone, the Promises are left. Will you not search them out in your Bibles every evening, and just say, as she often did, "This promise is so bright, and it is for me."
