awaken former trains of feeling, sometimes painful, sometimes joyous, but profitable withal, either to humble us under the sense of our transgressions, or to animate us to perseverance and hope. On this account, not to name other motives, how important to have the minds of the Young stored with Hymns and Portions of Scripture.
I have prefixed an appropriate Text of Scripture to each Hymn. A Table of those Texts will be found immediately after the Table of First Lines.
I have only to add my earnest Prayer, that the Great Head of the Church will be pleased to continue his blessing on the use of these Psalms and Hymns, which he has so often acknowledged before, to the comfort and edification of his people. May He fill with his Spirit all who may use them, that they may 'sing with the spirit" and "with the understanding" also, "singing and making melody in their hearts unto the Lord.” (1 Cor. xiv. 15. Eph. v. 19.)
St. Michael's, June 8, 1838.
In this Table, Psalms and Hymns are both included. The Psalms are distinguished by the letter P prefixed to each.
