“How beautiful is Genius when combined
With Holiness! Oh, how Divinely Sweet
The tones of earthly harp, whose chords are touched
By the soft hand of Piety, and hung
Upon Religion's shrine.'

To
WILLIAM EUING, Esq., F.S.A. Scot.,

Glasgow.

MY DEAR SIR,

An examination of your rare Collection of the works of British Hymd-writers enabled me to constitute the basis of the present work. In the perfecting of my design, I have received from you many obligations. Now that the labour of nine years is consummated in the appearance of this volume, I inscribe it to you, as a token of my esteem.

That the Hymns contained in this Collection, which have cheered myself under the cloud of trial, may prove a source of consolation to you in the valley of years, and may be to both of us a foretaste of the Songs of the Redeemed, is the earnest

desire and prayer of

My dear Sir,
Your very obedient faithful servant,

CHARLES ROGERS.
