AND BY ALL BOOKSELLERS.
In singing Psalms and Hymns, all slowness approaching to a drawl should be carefully avoided; and the Tunes should be sung, simply and distinctly, as they are written; all extemporaneous flourishes, slides, and grace-notes, as they are called, being not merely in bad taste, but wholly inadmissible in Congregational or Choral Singing.
It will be observed that all the Tunes in this Book are arranged for Treble (or Soprano), Counter-Tenor (or Contralto), Tenor, and Bass voices; the Treble and Counter-Tenor parts being on the upper Staff, and the Tenor and Bass parts on the lower Staff, of the Score.
God's glory the vast heavens proclaim
God's perfect law converts the soul
Great is the Lord, and greatly praised
Let all the just to God with joy..
Come, praise the Lord, come praise Him 150 Let all the lands with shouts of joy
Erect your heads, eternal gates
How blest is he who ne'er consents
How good and pleasant must it be
How happy are the folk, to whom
How long wilt Thou forget me, Lord
How shall the young preserve their ways
How vast must their advantage be 133
No change of times shall ever shock
33 O bless'd estate! bless'd from above
O God, my gracious God, to Thee
O God, my heart is fixed, 'tis bent
19 My God, my God, why leavest Thou me
My Shepherd is the living Lord
My soul, inspired with sacred love
