THE present

collection of Hymns for Public

Worship is made upon the basis of the “Book of Hymns” by the same compilers, with considerable omissions and additions, and a new arrangement.

Gathered around the central idea of God as the Present Spirit and the Indwelling Life of all, these Hymns will be found to present Nature as His outward manifestation; the human Spirit as His more intimate revealer, and its experiences as the steps of its growth in union with Him; human Life as the doing and bearing His will; and Human history as the process of His education of the race.

It is believed that this Book of Hymns will be found to embody the most earnest religious faith, united with the largest hope and the most advanced thought of the time.

S. LONGFELLOW,
S. JOHNSON.

Boston, January, 1864.
