FREQUENT enquiries for a Temperance Hymn Book have led to this compilation. Wesley said years ago, it was a pity Satan should have all the best tunes. The same may as properly be said of songs, which have contributed much to intemperance. Surely it is time that both music and song which have been thus perverted, should at once be rescued to the aid of tem. perance. The numerous beautiful poetical effusions on the subject, now enable us to present a valuable compilation. It is hoped that it will prove acceptable and useful to the American public;- valuable not only in temperance meetings, but in families, forming the minds and hearts of children and youth to an abhor. rence of those intoxicating drinks, which have slain their millions.

Moral Reform.

6s. & 4s.
1 YOME thou Almighty King,


Help us to praise !
Father all glorious,
O'er all victorious,
Come and reign over us

Ancient of days.
2 Jesus our Lord arise,
Scatter our enemies,

And make them fall!
Let thine Almighty aid,
Our sure defence be made,
Our souls on thee be stay'd,

Lord, hear our call !
3 To the great One in three,
The highest praises be,

Hence evermore ;
His sovereign majesty,
May we in glory see,
And to eternity,
Love and adore.

Madans Coll,
