PREFACE.

THE character and variety of this Selection - embracing, as it does, not only a large number of those standard hymns, which, from their religious fervor, beauty, or familiarity, have become indispensable aids to worship in all Christian Protestant congregations, but also many of the finest hymns and lyrics of modern times, not a few of which have been written since the publication of any other Hymn Book - is such, it is believed, as will commend the volume to those congregations which feel the want of a Hymn Book. Some of the best minds of our Church have been engaged in its compilation. And the hope is entertained that all the congregations that may adopt it, will find it a minister of aspiration, strength, and comfort, – a help to them in their Christian work.

Solemn Invocation.
YOME, thou Almighty King,

Help us thy name to sing,
Help us to praise ;
Father all glorious,
O'er all victorious,
Come, and reign over us,

Ancient of Days 1

2 Come, thou all-gracious Lord !
By heaven and earth adored,

Our prayer attend !
Come, and thy children bless ;
Give thy good word success ;
Make thine own holiness

On us descend !

3 Never from us depart;
Rule thou in every heart,

Hence, evermore!
Thy sovereign majesty
May we in glory see,
And to eternity

Love and adore !
