The words of the hymns have been carefully selected and revised. Many of the best church hymns, especially those suited to the free, joyous, and active temperament of youth, and inculcating a robust and healthy piety, have been incorporated in the book. The sacred lyrics of a Hosmer, Chadwick, Gannett, Savage, Williams, and other recent writers, are largely represented. The field of recent English hymnology has been gleaned with advantage. The number of absolutely new tunes and poems is not large, but will, it is hoped, add something to the enrichment of our church song

The editor desires to return his grateful acknowledgments for valuable suggestions and helps in the preparation of the work to Mrs. Theodore C. Williams, Eugene R. Shippen, George A. Burdett, J. W. Tufts, William C. Gannett, Frederick L. Hosmer, the John Church Company, W. A. Pond & Co., Houghton, Mifflin & Co., and other authors and publishers of music and poetry who have kindly allowed the use of the same for this hymnal. He also confesses his obligation to those well-known and admirable collections of sacred song: “The Hymn and Tune Book” (Rev. R. R. Shippen, editor), “Unity Hymns and Chorals,” “Unity Services and Songs" (J. Vila Blake, editor), “ Amore Dei” (Mrs. Theodore C. Williams, editress), “Hymns for Church and Home" (Mrs. Mary W. Tileston and Arthur Foote, editors), “The Essex Hall Hymn and Tune Book” (Rev. W. Copeland Bowie), “Ethical Songs, Hymns of Modern Thought " (Miss E. Josephine Troup, editress), “A Book of Song and Service” (E. A. Horton, editor), also to other publications, too numerous to specify, which have been consulted for this work.

If any copyright has been unknowingly infringed, the editor asks for kind indulgence, and that he be informed of his mistake. He also offers his apologies to any authors whose hymns, owing to the practical impossibility of obtaining their addresses, he has used without their permission.

2 Mighty Maker, ever nigh,

Work in me as silently ;
Veil the day's distracting sights,

Show me heaven's eternal lights.
3 Living worlds to view be brought

In the boundless realms of thought;
High and infinite desires,

Flaming like those upper fires. 4 Holy Truth, Eternal Right,

Let them break upon my sight;
Let them shine serene and still,

And with light my being fill. 5 Let my soul attuned be

To the heavenly harmony,
Which, beyond the power of sound,
Fills the universe around.

William H. Furness.

3 If there be some weaker one,

Give me strength to help him on;
If a blinder soul there be,

Let me guide him nearer thee.
4
Make

my mortal dreams come true With the work I fain would do ; Clothe with life the weak intent,

Let me be the thing I meant ! 5 Out of self to love be led,

And to heaven acclimated,
Until all things sweet and good
Seem my natural habitude.

John G. Whittier. 4

Invocation.
I Lo, we stand before thee now

And our silent inward vow
Thou dost hear in that profound,
Where is neither voice nor sound.

3

Out of Self. 1 What thou wilt, O Father, give!

All is gain that I receive :
Let the lowliest task be mine,

Grateful, so the work be thine. 2 Let me find the humblest place

In the shadow of thine grace;
Let me find in thine employ
Peace, that dearer is than joy.

2 Not by any outward sign

Dost thou show thy will divine;
Deep within thy voice doth cry,

And our quickened souls reply.
3 Thou dost hear, and thou wilt bless

With thy strength and tenderness;
Lo! we come to do thy will;
With thy life our spirits fill.

John W. Chadwick.
