PREFACE.

THE CHAPEL HYMN Book is an abridgea edition of the CHURCH HYMN BOOK. It is designed for the Chapel, the Lecture-Room, the Social Meeting, and the Family. It aims, also, to meet the demands of missionary and feeble churches for a book less expensive than the more comprehensive and complete work.

To this end, the most familiar and best approved hymns and tunes of the CHURCH HYMN BOOK have been incorporated, without abridgment or alteration, and in the same order of topics, into this humbler selection. Both the hymns and the tunes of this MANUAL OF PRAISE are regarded as among the choicest in use among the churches of America. As the numbering of the larger work is attached to each of the hymns in this selection, Loth books may readily be used together.

The principles on which the original compilation was made are fully set forth in the preface to the CHURCH HYMN BOOK.

The Blessed Trinity.
1 HOLY, holy, holy ! Lord God Almighty!

Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee:
Holy, holy, holy! merciful and mighty;

God in Three Persons, blessèd Trinity!
2 Holy, holy, holy ! all the saints adore thee,

Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
Cherubim and seraphim falling down before thee,

Which wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.
3 Holy, holy, holy! though the darkness hide thee,

Though the eye of sinful man thy glory may not see;
Only thou art boly: there is none beside thee,

Perfect in power, in love, and purity.
4 Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!

All thy works shall praise thy name, in earth, and sky, and sea:
Holy, holy, holy! merciful and mighty;
God in Three Persons, bleseed Trinity. Amen.

Reginald Heber, 1827.
