THE PRAISE HYMNAL is intended to promote spirituality in worship, holiness in
life, and activity in world—wide evangelization. The singing of hymns has ever been
one of the mightiest influences for good. It makes possible a deeper experience of
truth, a more real fellowship with (iod, and a holy union with devout souls of all
ages in their highest ideals of duty. The great periods in the history of the Church
have been creative of new song. No more decisive proof exists that the Gospel is the
rising force in human affairs than the joy and spirit with which Christians sing their

Recent years have added largely to the hymnology of the Church. Out of the
modern revival has come the “Gospel Song,” and the people have accepted it as truly
helpful in the (‘hristian life. \Vhat the people love to sing ought to be, in a Church
hyninal. The new songs and the old should stand side by side in one book which is
adapted to all the various services of an aggressive Church.

THE Prensa HvMXAL is, first of all, a book of devotion. Its hymns are largely
prayer and praise, in which the heart speaks dire tly to God and to Christ. Then it
is also a book of gospel hymns, which are intended to rouse the mind to the blessed-
ness of salvation and to the importance of activity in the Christian life.

In a gene ‘al say the two classes of hymns are distinguished by the fact that the
hymn of worship is addressed to (iod, and the gospel hymn to those about us. The
ti ‘st is most suitably sung to a solemn, dignified choral tune, while the latter is set to
music with a more rapid movement and wit-h a chorus. Each kind of tune is needed,
the choral to express reverence, and the lively air to awaken zeal and activity. V

THE I’RAIsE HvMNAL contains the best of the. old Chorals, many simple and beau-
tiful new ones, and a large number of double. tunes, which often combine the excel—
lence of the choral and of the gospel song. 'Widely differing musical tastes will find
here a common meeting-ground, but the book is specially suited to congregational
use. It is the people’s book.

These hymns reflect the inner life of the Churchflthe triumphant spirit in which
it is moving forward to its work and destiny, They are full of the thought of God’s
love, of salvation in Christ, of strengthening by the Holy Spirit, and they reveal the
people of God as striving to perfect themselves in love, in devotion, in trust, in zeal

or the gospel, and in self—sacrifice. In a true sense these hymns are the voice of the
Church universal calling Christians to a deeper spiritual life, and to more Christ-like
service in the field of duty. Let these be sung by all the peOple, and our Churches
will be glorious not only with the beauty of music, but with the noble offering of

that worship which is “in the beauty of holiness.” i

A few suggestions :

1. Brood over these hymns; feel the blessed truth in them ;' When this is ap-
preciated the tunes will be loved, and singing them will aid the spiritual life.

2. Let there be more mutual respect in matters of musical taste. If people love

a song join heartily with them in it.

3. \Vhile singing, make much of the thought that it is an offering to the Lord.

- Sing with a sense of being heard in. heaven and to please God.

4. \Vhether we sing or play on instruments, let us feel strongly that What we do
for God ought to be well done. .

5. Choirs will greatly aid congregations by singing to them the choral tunes in
unison till the melodies have become familiar. Unison singing by the whole congre-
gation is very impressive.

6. Occasionally bring the children into the Church and have them sing a hymn
with which they are familiar as a special song.

7. The “Scripture Readings” are intended to give the people one more edifying
way of taking part in public worship. The Psalms selected are devotional, and to
read them aright is to pray in the heart.

The “Topical Selections” are largely the expression of experience of living real-
ities/ii ‘.All public reading of the \Vord is essentially a paying of honor to God, and
not merely a didactic exercise. It is suggested that these readings be used in addi-
tion to the ordinary reading of a lesson.

The Psalms retain the numbers and the order which they have in the Bible, and
are to be referred to by number and page.

Th6 “Topical Selections” are well suited to revivals and special occasions. It

‘ is better that leaders of meetings study the apprOpriateness of these selections for

special uses, and we, therefore, make no suggestions as to their fitness for particular

The “Orders of Worship” give some hints as to how they may be introduced to

All the readings are taken from the Revised Versw’n except the Lord’s Prayer and
the Twenty-third Psalm. The paragraphs are the verses just as they stand in the
Bible. The reading may be either responsive or in concert. Six selections are given
for recitation in concert from memory. This is an effective way of using short selec-

Here, then, in hymn and tune and Scripture, are the fit elements which the sin-

cere and the spiritual may employ so as to bring beauty and dignity into the worship
of God. In the Church let us, in the Spirit, go near to the throne of grace; let us

~pour out our souls in gladness and yet be filled with the awe of His presence. So

shall our Churches be indeed “none other but the house of God and the gate of
heaven.” GILBERT J. ELLIS,
Cincinnati, January, 1896. - J. H. FILLMORE.

our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from

BLESSED are the poor in spirit: for theirs
is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are they that mourn: for they
shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek: for they shall in-
herit the earth.

Blessed are they that hunger and thirst
after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

Blessed are the merciful: for they shall
obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart: for they
shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they
shall be called sons of God—[Matt 5 .° 3—9.


THOU shalt love the Lord thy God with
all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and
with all thy mind. This is the great and
first commandment. And a second like
unto it is this, Thou shalt love thy neigh—
bour as thyself. _ On these two command—
ments hangeth the whole law, and the
prophets—{Matt 29: 37—40.


FOR this cause I bow my knees unto
the Father, from whom every family in
heaven and on earth is named, that he
would grant you, according to the riches
of his glory, that ye may be strengthened
with pOWer through his Spirit in the in-
ward man; that Christ may dwell in your
hearts through faith; to the end that ye,
being rooted and grounded in love, may
be strong to apprehend with all the saints
what is the breadth and length and height


and depth, and to know the love of Christ
which passeth knowledge, that ye may
be filled unto all the fulness of, God.

Now unto him that is able to do ex-
ceeding abundantly above all that we ask
or think, according to the )ower that
worketh in us, unto him be t}l

generations for ever and ever. jAnien.’——
[Epih 3:14-21.

5. PSALM 23.

THE Lord is my shepherd: I shall not
want. He maketh me to lie down in
green pastures: he leadeth me beside the
still waters. He restoreth my soul: he
leadeth me in the paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the
presence of mine enemies: thou anointest
my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow
me all the days of my life: and I will
dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.


\VHo can discern his errors? Clear
thou me from hidden faults. Keep back
thy servant also from presumptuous sins:
let them not have dominion over me:
then shall I be perfect, and I shall be
clear from great transgression. Let the
words of my mouth and the meditation
of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, 0
Lord, my rock and my redeemer.—-—[Ps.

24 Be strong, and let your heart take
All ye that hope in the LORD.

REJOICE in the LORD, 0 ye righteous:
Praise is comely for the upright.

Give thanks unto the LORD with harp:
Sing praises unto him with the psal-
tery Of ten strings.

Sing unto him a new song;
Play skilfully with a loud noise.

For the word Of the LORD is right;

And all his work is done in faithful-

He loveth righteousness and judge-

- ment:

The earth is full of the lovingkindness
Of the LORD.

By the word of the LORD were the
heavens made;

And all the host of them by the breath
of his mouth.

{He gathereth the waters of the sea to-
gether as an heap:
He layeth up the deeps in storehouses.

Let all the earth fear the LORD:
Let all the inhabitants of the world
stand in awe of him.

For he spake, and it was done;
He commanded, and it stood last.

The LORD bringeth the counsel of the
nations to nought:

He maketh the thoughts of the peo-
ples to be of none effect.

The counsel of the LORD standeth fast

The thoughts of his heart to all gen-

Blessed is the nation whose God is
the LORD;

The people whom he hath chosen for
his own inheritance.

The LORD looketh from heaven;
He beholdeth all the sons Of men;

14 From the place of his habitation he

looketh forth
Upon all the inhabitants Of the earth;

15 He that fashioneth the hearts of them

That’considereth all their works. _

16 There is no king saved by the multi-
tude of an host:








A mighty man is not delivered by
great strength.

An horse is a vain thing for safety:
Neither shall he deliver any by his
great power.

Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon
them that fear him,
Upon them that hope in his mercy;

To deliver their soul from death,
And to keep them alive in famine.

Our soul hath waited for the LORI):
He is our help and our shield.

For our heart shall rejoice in him,
Because we have trusted in his holy

Let thy mercy, 0 LORD, be upon us,
According as we have hoped in thee.

PSALM 3’ .

I will bless the LORD at all times:
His praise shall continually be in my

My soul shall make her boast in the

The meek shall hear thereof, and be

O magnify the LORD with me,
And let us exalt his name together.

I sought the LORD, and he answered
And delivered me from all my fears.

They looked unto him, and were light-

And their faces shall never be con-

heard him,
And saved him out of all his troubles.

The angel of the LORD encampeth
round about them that fear him,
And delivereth them.

0 taste and see that the LORD is good:
Blessed is the man that trusteth in

For there is no want to them that fear

10 The young lions do lack, and suffer

But they that seek the LORD shall not
want any good thing.
