Six Steps to the Throne: Programme for Children's Day, June 1889. Copyright 1889 by Hunt and Eaton, New York. Published by Cranston and Stowe, Cincinnati (Ohio). As the needle in the compass trembles till it settles in the north point, so the heart of man can have no rest but in Christ (Robert Leighton). Eight page pamphlet with order of service, readings and hymns for a Christian service on Children's Day, this particular program was offered on June 9, 1889. This is a Methodist publication. There are six steps, for which there are six corresponding divisions in the service. Participation is directed for boys, girls, and leaders. An address is directed to be given by an adult scholar. References to a Supplement are made, but with no indication as to what this supplement is. The readings and recitations are from the Holy Bible, King James Version, as well as from inspirational writings. Scripture references and authors of writings are not given, which is very typical of this time period. Interesting Note: found a newspaper reference that can be used that is a brief article about North Avenue M. E. Church, Allegheny (New York), having used this service. The article states, An interesting and instructive programme was rendered. A pyramid was built on the pulpit, bearing the words, All for Christ, Six Steps to the Throne, and each stone contained [one of] the words: Mind, Body, Will, Conscience, Heart, and Christ. First Lines of Hymns with printed music in hymn-format as follows: O Day of Festal Glory (Payne/Sweney) In Our Life's Early Hours (Blossom/Sweney) Blest Are the Pure in Heart (Keble/Sweney) Brothers, Have You Strength of Will (Blossom/Zundel) To Reach the Throne We Eager Try (Blossom/Neal) O Wisdom, Precious Wisdom (Blossom/Carl).
