Tar. happy influence of sacred music upon
the heart, has been admired by the pious of
all ages: and such was the estimate which
they placed upon this great duty and privi-
lege of the sanctuary, that they have transmit-
ted it to their children, from generation to
generation, both by precept and example.

Not only are we exhorted, in the Holy
Scriptures, to celebrate the high praises of
God, and to lift up our voices “ in the assem-
‘tly of the upright, and in the congregation,"
)ut God, who requires the service of the heart.
In all we do, has expressly enjoined it upon us
to “ sing with the spirit, and with the under-
standing also.”

It is, therefore, highly important, that a.
strict regard be had to the sentiments contain-
ed in the language we use in the performance
if this sacred duty.

Since sacred mustc is so conspicubus a part
)l' our exercises in the worship of the true
God, it is very destrahle to see every congre-

ation in Zion furnished with such psalms,

ymns, and spiritual songs, as express the
Iteutiments and doctrine contained in the Holy
l3criptures, adapted to the various necessities
and conditions of men. with such an arrange
ment as to suit their convenience.

With this ohjeet, in View, the committee
have compiled, and now submit this work
which has cost much time and labor.





But it is due to our brethren t0 presmt a
few reasons for offering a new collection of
hymns to the christian public, which we
Cheerlitlly do. As lar as our acquaintance ex.
tends, a large majority of the Christians in
the \Vest have decided, that the hymn-books
in use among us are delicient, either in ar-
rangement or variety; and, in some instances,
in the sentiment contained in the hymns. \Ve
have diversity ol' hymn-books among us, of-
ten diilering both in the sentiment. and in the
phraseology ol' the hymns, to the great incon-
venience of the congregations. It is expected,
and truly desired. that by collecting the most
approved hymns out of them all into one
work, the congregations will soon he in pos-
session ol' a unilorinity of hymn-books. The
increasing demand. and pressing calls of out
brethren in the West for hymn-books, show
that such a work is highly IHPCUSSHI‘y. Many
ol the old collections among us are sold out,
and no more of them are to he obtained. Zion
has enlarged her borders. multitudes have
{locked to the standard of Emmanuel. and
united with the saints in singing the praises
of God. May our highest expectations be
realized; and may this collection of hymns
he so attended with the blessing of God. as
to encourage true devotion, and cheer all the
lovers ol' God on their pilgrimage-jonrney, un-
til we shall all meet in heaven to chant the
praises of God and of the Lamb forever.
