PREFACE

The Committee duly authorized by the Directors of the Universalist Publishing House to compile and prepare for publication a new hymnal, with services and chants, now offers to the constituency which called for it, this volume. Pains have been taken to present in adequate number, and with comprehensive variety, orders for divine worship, classified hymns and tunes, and responsive selections from the Holy Scriptures, adapted to the varying needs of a broad, modern church worshipping God and serving man in the spirit of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

It is the prayer of the Committee that this work, including as it does so much of the liturgical literature, poetry and music found acceptable in the past, may serve to strengthen the religious faith, enrich the spiritual life, and quicken to greater social and missionary activity the Christian people who shall use it in public and private devotions.
