Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1869, by
For the General Synod of the Reformed Church in America,
Southern District of New York,
This hymnal is designed for use in closet and family worship; in social services of prayer and praise; at sea; in hospital service; at military stations; at mission stations; and in small churches. Its compact form fits it for such use. It contains the choicest of Christian hymns, whose careful selection is the result of years of patient labor. In making this selection, the whole field of Christian hymnody, ancient and modern, has been traversed. Hymns of expressive and impressive power, of objective worship and subjective experience, have been brought together in it, so as to form a concise but complete manual of prayer and praise. These hymns have been adjusted to such simple, sweet, and suitable music as is fairly within the reach of all. The arrangement of the pages, withal, is such as to give as often as possible, a choice of music. The editors cannot but cherish a sense of devout thankfulness to God for the acceptance with which the book has been received. And with the prayer that it may in yet larger degree be used to the honor of Our Blessed Lord, and to the welfare and comfort of His people, this new edition has, after careful revision, been issued.
