The Primary Song Book: Including Marches and Voluntaries, 1939
The general tone of the this book is drastically different than the current book. There are instructional songs about doing chores and obeying parents, (Scrubbing Song, Setting the Table, and Washing Dishes ) songs about health and hygiene, (Come to Healthland, Early to Bed and Early to Rise, and Little Brother Vegetable) songs specific to abandoned or updated programs and classes, (Primary Penny Song, Builder Boys, and The Bluebirds), songs far too secular or pagan to be permitted in today’s Sunday meetings (Jack Frost and I, Hallowe'en Surprise, and Fairy Fiddles), yet surprisingly few songs that teach scripture stories or gospel principles like I'm Trying to Be Like Jesus.
- Published by The General Board Of The Primary Association Of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints Salt Lake City, Utah.
- There was also a 1948 edition containing 194 songs.
