The Trustees have been induced to publish this work by the urgent call of our denomination for a collection of Hymns peculiarly adapted to Conference and Prayer Meetings. How far they have succeeded in meeting the necessity for a collection of Hymns of this kind, must be determined by that public to which this selection is now submitted.

Should this work prove a means of facilitating the of. ferings of praise and devotion, and in cherishing and elevating the piety of Christians, and of conveying truth to the hearts and understandings of the unconverted—of adding to the declarative glory of God, then will the objects and desires of the publishers be accomplished.

Dover, Dec. 1836.

I C. M.
The Christian Soldier.
M I a soldier of the cross?
-- A follower of the Latmb?
And shall I fear to own his cause,
Or blush to speak his name?

2 Must I be carried to the skies,
On flowery beds of ease ;

While others fought to win the prize,
And sailed through bloody seas?

3 Are there no foes for me to face?
Must I not stem the flood?

Is this vain world a friend to grace,
To help me on to God?

4 Sure I must fight, if I would reign :
Increase my courage, Lord ;

I’ll bear the toil, endure the pain,
Supported by thy word.

5 Thy saints, in all.this glorious war,
Shall conquer, though they die ;

They view the triumph from afar,
And seize it with their eye.
