PREFACE

This volume has been prepared in response to many requests for
a small and inexpensive collection of well known Standard Church
Hymns, together with a selection of the best and most useful
Gospel Hymns and Sacred Songs

It contains three hundred and sixty-seven hymns, with music,
selected with great care, conveniently arranged, covering a large
range of subjects, and provided with a complete Topical Index.

We believe this collection will prove a great boon to many
Churches throughout the country, that do not care to purchase the
large and expensive Hymnals of the day, from which only a small
portion of the pieces are sung by any congregation.

Trusting that these Standard Hymns and Sacred Songs may find
a warm welcome, not only in all Church Services, but also in the
Prayer Meetings of the land, and be a blessing wherever used, we
send them forth on their joyful mission.

THE AUTHORS.

United States, Great Britain and Provinces, under the provisions of the International Copy-
right aw, and must not be printed published for any purpose whatever, without the

2 Holy, holy, holy! all the saints adore Thee,

Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea; Cherubim and seraphim falling down before Thee,

Which wert and art and evermore shalt be. 3 Holy, holy, holy! though the darkness hide Thee,

Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see; Only Thou art holy; there is none beside Thee,

Perfect in power, in love and purity. 4 Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!

All Thy works shall praise Thy name, in earth and sky and sea; Holy, holy, holy, merciful and mighty; God in three persons, blesséd Trinity!

Reginald Heber.
