To those friends, who have kindly afforded us their aid in making this compilation, we would here express our thankful acknowledgments.

In the title of the book, we embody our leading idea and purpose in this enterprise, which have been to provide a collection, not of Jewish psalms or elegant songs, but essentially Christian hymns, pitched, so to say, after the grand master-tone of our faith, whatever intermingling subordinate notes they might have of joy or sorrow, encouragement or warning, praise or confession. We have striven that the high doctrines, duties, and promises of our holy religion might shine forth from these pages in their noon-day distinctness, and arrayed in all the charms of taste and melody, that the great Master might be honored with the love of his disciples, and the greater Father worshipped with the fervent adoration, praise, and thanks giving of his children.

ACCORDING to thy gracious word A charge to keep I have Affliction is a stormy deep Again, from calm and sweet repose Again our ears have heard the voice Again the Lord of life and light Again we've seen the Sabbath day A holy air is breathing round A host of spirits round the throne Alas! how poor and little worth . All hail the power of Jesus' name All men are equal in their birth All nature dies and lives again All nature feels attractive power All nature's works his praise declare All-seeing God! 't is thine to know All ye nations, praise the Lord Almighty and immortal King Almighty God, in humble prayer Almighty God, thy word is cast Almighty Lord, before thy throne Almighty Maker! Lord of all Am I a soldier of the cross Amidst a world of hopes and fears And can my heart aspire so high And is the gospel peace and love And is there, Lord, a rest And now, my soul, another year. An offering to the shrine of power Another day is past Another day its course hath run Another six days' work is done Arise, and bless the Lord Arm of the Lord, awake, awake Arrayed in clouds of golden light As body when the soul has fled As, bowed by sudden storms, the roso As flows the rapid river Asleep in Jesus! blesséd sleep. As in solemn congregation As o’er the past my memory strays A soldier's course from battles won As the hart, with eager looks As the sun's enlivening eye As the sweet flower that scents the morn As twilight's gradual veil is spread At thy table, Lord of life

Author of good, to thee we turn
A voice upon the midnight air
Awake, and sing the song
Awake, my soul, and with the sun

Awake, my soul! lift up thine eyes
Awake, my soul! stretch every nerve
Awake, my tongue; thy tribute bring
Awake, our souls; away, our fears
Awake, ye saints, awake
Awake, ye saints, and raise your eyes

Baptized into our Saviour's death
Before Jehovah's awful throne
Begin, my soul, th' exalted lay
Begin the high, celestial strain
Behold, amid his little flock
Behold th' amazing sight
Behold the morning sun
Behold! the Prince of Peace
Behold the western evening light
Behold, where, breathing love divine
Behold, where, in a mortal form
Behold yon bright array,
be joyful in God, all ye lands of the earth
Beneath our feet and o'er our head
Be thou, O God, exalted high.
Beyond, beyond that boundless sea
Blest are the humble souls that sec
Blest are the pure in heart
Blest are the sons of peace
Blest are the souls that hear and know
Blest be the tie that binds
Blest hour, when mortal man retires'
Blest Instructer! from thy ways
Blest is the hour when cares depart
Blest is the man who fears the Lord
Blest is the man, whose heart is kind
Blest Shepherd, I am thine
Blest Spirit, Source of grace divine
Borne o'er the ocean's stormy wavc
Brightest and best of the sons of the morning
Bright Source of everlasting love
Bright Source of intellectual rays
Bright the vision that delighted
Bright was the guiding star that led
Brother, rest from sin and sorrow
Brother, thou art gone before us
Brother, thou art gone to rest :
Brother, though from yonder sky
By cool Siloam's shady rill
By us the seed is sown

Dark, dark indeed the grave would be .
Daughter of Zion, awake from thy sadness
Day unto day doth utter speech
Dear as thou wert, and justly dear
Death has been here, and borne away
Deathless spirit, now arise
Deem not that they are blest alone
Delightful is the task to sing

Early, my God, without delay
Eat, drink, in memory of your Friend
Ere mountains reared their forms sublimo
Eternal Father, God of love
Eternal God! how frail is man
Eternal God, thou Light divine
Eternal Source of every joy
Eternal Source of life and light
Eternal Source of joys divine
Eternal Spirit, God of truth .
Eternal Wisdom, thee we praise
Ever sounds with holy hymns
Exert thy power, thy rights maintain

Faith adds new charms to earthly bliss
Faith, hope, and charity, these three
Faith, hope, and love now dwell
Faith is the brightest evidence
Faith is the Christian's prop
Far as thy name is known
Farewell, dear friend ! a long farewell
Far from mortal cares retreating
Far from these narrow scenes of night
Far from thy servants, God of grace
Father and Friend, thy light, thy love
Father! and is thy table spread
Father, bless thy word to all
Father, breathe an evening blessing
Father divine, the Saviour cried
