A member of the Baptist denomination, Hearn lived in Farningham, Northampton, and Gravesend.

  1. Anywhere with Jesus
  2. Christ, We Children Sing to Thee
  3. Father Who Givest Us Now the New Year
  4. He Smiled as He Stretched Out His Hand in Glad Welcome
  5. Hail the Children’s Festal Day
  6. Just as I Am, Thine Own to Be
  7. Let the Children Come, Christ Said
  8. Little Feet Are Passing
  9. Sing, for the World Rejoices
  10. We Hope in Thee, O God!
  11. When Mysterious Whispers Are Floating About
