Never forget the dear ones. [Home.] The tune by Dr. G. F. Boot with the title from the first line of this hymn has led many to assume that he was the author of the words also. So far as we can gather this is not so. It is, however, in his Young Men's Singing Book, N.Y., 1855, and thence in the Tonic Solfa Reporter, March, 1856, p. 117. In the Sunday School Hymnary, 1905, it is given as Anon., circa 1850. We know of no authority for this date. [Rev. James Mearns, M.A.]
