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 the 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.

Many of the new pieces in this collection, both words and music, are Copyright in the United States, Great Britain and Provinces, under the provisions of the International Copyright Law, and must not be reprinted or published for any purpose whatever, without the written permission of the owners thereof,

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

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

Which wert and art and evermore shalt be.
8 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 Then,

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 porsons, blesséd Trinity!

Reginald Heber.
