used at the beginning of a line, to
contradict any mark of musical ex-
pression which has gone before it.
In the middle of a line, or at the
end, it signifies a pause, longer or
shorter, according to the judgment
of the performer.

The marks for musical expression have been prefixed, in general, with reference to the tunes named. The same psalm or hymn, sung to a different tune, might often require some variation of the expression.

After all which can be done, directions for musical expression must be merely hints, by which the general character of the expression to be given is indicated. The various kinds and degrees of the emotions to be expressed, requiring a corresponding variation of the manner of performance, are so numerous, and so complicated in their nature, that only a ready susceptibility of emotion, joined to good taste and judgment, and careful attention to the subject, can secure a correct manner of singing.

In the index to the first lines, as well as in that to the subjects, the psalms and hymns are brought together without distinc tion, and the reference is uniformly to the page. In the latter index, the different subjects are not inserted under words arbitrarily selected, and placed in alphabetical order, but under the principal and subordinate topics of the arrangement in the book, thus bring. ing all the psalms and hymns on the same or kindred topics near each other in the index, so as to be easily found. This is believed to be the most convenient plan for such an index.

With these remarks and explanations, this work, on which the compilers have bestowed much time and labor, and in which they have found much pleasure, is now given to the churches for their use.

Boston, August, 1831.

DAVID GREENE.

INDEX OF FIRST LINES.

ABOVE these heavens' created rounds..
According to thy word.......
Again, indulgent Lord, return...
Again our earthly cares we leave...
Again the day returns of holy rest..
Again the Lord of life and light..
Ah, how shall fallen man...
Ah, wretched, vile, ungrateful heart..
Alas! and did my Saviour bleed...
Alas! what hourly dangers rise..
All-glorious God, what hymns of praise.
All hail, incarnate God....

All hail the great Immanuel's name..
All power and grace to God belong..
All power is to our Saviour given...
All-powerful, self-existent God.....
All ye nations, praise the Lord.....
All ye that love the Lord, rejoice.....
All ye who feel distressed for sin.....
All ye who serve the Lord with fear..
All yesterday is gone......
Almighty Father, God of grace....
Almighty Father, gracious Lord..
Almighty Father of mankind..
Almighty God, eternal Lord....
Almighty Lord, before thy throne...
Almighty Maker, God....
Almighty Maker of my frame.....
Almighty Ruler of the skies...
Almighty Spirit, now behold...

Along the banks where Babel's current

Am I a soldier of the cross..
Am I an Israelite indeed.......
Amid displays of wrath and love..

Another six days' work is done...........
Are sinners now so hardened grown..
Arise, arise, with joy survey.....
Arise, great God, and let thy grace.
Arise in all thy splendor, Lord..
Arise, my gracious God......
Arise, my soul, on wings sublime..
Arise, my tender thoughts, arise.

Arise, O King of grace, arise..
Arise, O Lord, lift up thine hand...
Arise, ye people, and adore......
