PREFACE

[graphic]

HOSE who know LIVING HYMNS will welcome LIVING HYMNS No. 2.

If the object in publishing it were only pecuniary profit it would have been issued long ago, because of the popularity and large sale of the first

book. But LIVING HYMNS is too good a book to hastily supplant. It will not wear out, and its use will still go on, with the new No. 2 LIVING HYMNS as a valuable supplement.

This new book, complete in itself, contains, with some of the dear old hymns, the last thoughts and tunes that were in the brain and heart of John R. Sweney, that master singer of his time.

As the latest days of his beautiful and blessed life were spent in the preparation of LIVING HYMNS No. 2, it is the child of his heart, born when he was not far from the City of Endless Song.

While thinking and praying and whispering these songs the good man was lifted up nearer and nearer to God. So may this memorial-book be uplifting to all who use it. Mrs. JOHN R. SWENEY, Executrix,

JOHN WANAMAKER,

John R. Sweney's Intimate Friend.
