The Pattern of Life, Or, Lessons for Children From The Life Of Our Lord

William Chatterton Dix

London: Griffith, Farran, Okeden & Welsh, 1885

Christmas-tide Hymns & Carols

This book is comprised of a series of essays directed towards children regarding the many aspects of life as taken from the life of Our Lord. Included, however, are a few poems that could easily be made into hymns with an appropriate melody.

Preface from W. C. D., 1885.

The Hymns, now first printed, may be committed to memory, and may, themselves, form instructions upon the practical truths sought to be enforced by them.

Editor's Note.

In addition to many of the hymns and carols linked above, Mr. Dix was the author of several other notable hymns and carols including these two for the Christmas-tide:
