A37 preface

THE GOSPEL SONGS contained in this volume have been

1 very carefully selected by the editors with a view of presenting to christian workers and others, a book that would be of especial value in evangelistic work. It contains a choice selection of the old favorites, together with some of the newer compositions, also new songs which have not heretofore been published in any book. We believe every song is singable, and that the book is devoid of the padding usually found in books of this order. It has been carefully and prayerfully selected, and for evangelistic work we believe no better selection of songs can be found.

We wish to acknowledge the unfailing courtesy and valuable suggestions of I. Allan Sankey, son of the famous evangelist, Ira D. Sankey, and President of The Biglow & Main Company, without whose responsible interest this book as arranged and proposed would not have been possible.

To the following named firms and individuals we hereby tender our sincere thanks for their generous gifts and concessions on copyrighted pieces : Ira D. Sankey, Geo. C. Stebbins, Hubert P. Main, W. H. Doane, H. R. Palmer, John J. Hood, Mrs. Robert Lowry, Mrs. R. E. Hudson, Mrs. Joseph F. Knapp, Geo. C. Hugg, The John Church Co.
