PREFACE.

W H IS Hymn Book has been prepared after the most careful and

prayerful thought. For a number of years as Evangelists and

Christian workers we have been brought in contact with the different Churches and feel that we know their need, and it is to help meet this in common with other Hymn Books that this collection of CHRISTIAN HYMNS is sent forth. We have designed it for use in the Church, and with this fact in mind many of the old Standard hymns, together with very many new ones, have been chosen. We have had in our minds the special work of the Sunday-school, and believe we have some of the best Sunday-school hymns published, in our collection. We have not forgotten the Young People's Societies of the Churches, and have at considerable expense secured some of the most inspiring hymns we know. In addition to all this we feel perfectly confident that Evangelists and Pastors engaged in special meetings will find just such hymns as would be an inspiration in their work, and in addition to all this such Responsive Readings have been chosen as make the book useful in any service of any character, in all the work of the Church. With a prayer that the Hymn Book may be a blessing, we send it forth on its mission of song.

1. I am walking thro' this earth-life, Oft- en wea - ry, oft - en sad;
2. I am trav’ling to a cit - y Where the light is nev - er dim,
3. I am looking for re- demption Thro' the mer- its of my King;

But my Saviour walketh with me, And his presence makes me glad.
And my Saviour leads so gent - ly, It is sweet to walk with him.
Bless- ed beams of free sal - va - tion Shine a- bout me as I sing.

And he whispers thro’ life's shadows, “Do not tremble, I am near !"

1. Have you heard the voice of Je - sus Whisper, “I have chosen you?”
2. As the first dis - ci- ples followed, As they went where'er he sent ;
3. Or, if he shall choose to send us On some er - rand in his name,
4. Master, at thy foot-stool kneeling, We, thy children, humbly wait ;

Does he tell you in commun - ion What he wish - es you to do?

So to - day we, too, may fol - low, On his lead - ing still in- tent.
We can serve him as dis - ci - ples, For our place is just the same.
Lead us, send us, bless us, use us, Till we en - ter heaven's gate.

CHORUS

Are you in the in- ner cir- cle? Have you heard the Master's call ?

Are you in the in- ner cir- cle? Have you heard the Master's call ?

No. 5. "SAVED TO SAVE OTHERS.”
FLORA KIRKLAND.

Chas. H. GABRIEL.

1. “Saved to save others,” rejoicing, I sing ; Lord be my Teacher to - day!
2. Life's little moment is hast ning away, Come to the Master, ( come!
3. Sin is al - luring ; but how will it end? Powers of e- vil are strong?
4. Master, thy mercy has reached even me, Help me show others the way ;

-

-

Help me lead someone to heaven's pure spring, Help me show someone the way.
Come to him now, while’tis yet called ''to-day,” Come, heavy-laden one, come!
Come to the sinners' unchangeable Friend, He giveth victry and song.

Up to the fountain of mercy so free Help me lead someone to - day.
