Come before his presence with singing.— PsALM c. 2.

I will sing of thy power: yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy.—PsALM lix. 16.

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, in all wisdom; teaching and
admonishing one another in psalms and hymns, and spiritual songs, singing
with grace in your hearts to the Lord.—Col. iii. 16.

I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.-
1 COR. xiv. 15.

This volume consists of two parts, the LITURGY and the HYMNs— for the use of the PROTESTANT CHURCH of the UNITED or MoRAVIAN BRETHREN. The collection of Hymns consists partly of translations from the German, (marked by an asterisk,) and partly of original compositions. The present Edition, carefully revised, and supplied with a full Index of every verse, contains the same hymns as the editions of 1851 and 1853, which had been prepared with a view to their embracing the emendations and additions by the late brother James Montgomery, and at the same time retaining a number of valuable hymns of earlier editions, and adapting others to more familiar tunes. The numbers of the hymns in brackets, referring to earlier editions, are omitted, those editions being but little used at the present time. The numbers of the Tunes correspond with the German Tune-Book by Gregor, as also with that published in England by C. J. Latrobe, and with the book arranged for four voices by Peter Wolle, for the use of our Church-choirs and social meetings. May all who use these Hymns, experience at all times the happy effects of compliance with the apostolic injunction, (Eph. v. 18, 19,)— “Be filled with the Spirit; speaking to yourselves in psalms, and hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord.” Yea, may they anticipate, while here below, though in an humble and imperfect strain, the song of the blessed above, who, being redeemed out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation, and having washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb, are standing before the throne, and singing in perfect harmony with the myriads of angels that surround it (Rev. v. 9–12; vii. 9–14): “Worthy is the Lamb that was slain, to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory,

and blessing, for ever and ever. Amen.” (iii)
