PREFACE

The object of “Praise Songs” has been admirably set forth in the Introduction by the Rev. Charles Cuthbert Hall, D.D. The compiler is greatly indebted to Dr. Hall and also to Mr. R. R. McBurney and Mr. George A. Warburton for their advice and help.

It has been our aim to select hymns of literary merit, warmth, and devotion, setting them as far as possible to tunes of acknowledged excellence and of distinctively religious character. If in some instances we seem to have failed, it is because we believe the time is not ripe for the ideal book.

“ Praise Songs" is adapted for the use of Young Men's Christian Associations, Young Women's Christian Associations, Schools, Colleges ; Christian Endeavor, Epworth League, and other Young People's Societies; Prayer Meetings, Sunday Schools, and small Churches. ·

To the many authors, composers, and publishers who have granted us the use of copyrighted hymns and tunes, we extend our hearty thanks. Special mention should be made of Messrs. P. A. Schnecker, Arpad Laszlo, Sigfrid Stenhammar, Samuel S. Gaines, and William S. Chester for the new tunes they have written. We would also thank Mr. George A. Warburton for the hymns now published for the first time.

ARTHUR H. DADMUN
