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.

TABLE OF FIRST LINES.
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
