Entered according to Act of Congress in the year 11b7,


In the Clerk‘s Office of the District Court of the Unitnd
States, for the Southern District of Ohio.





Singing the praises of God may justly be regarded a:
In important part of the worship we oll'er to him, andi
was enjoined by divine authority upon both Jews and
Christians. The relation that the Hymn Bonk standa
in to singing in the Church, is such, that gives it a place
next in importance to the Bible, among Christians.
And as the Ilymn Book is an important auxiliary in
promoting Christian worship and edification, the pro-
priety of having one scriptural in its character, conve—
nient in its arrangement, and varied and full in the
hymns it contains, will be apparent to all. It has been
the object of the compiler to make such a. book. How
far he has succeeded, those who make themselves ac—
quainted with it, can best judge.

There has existed an impression among us for years,
that our Hymn Book should be revised and improved;
and this impression has grown with the growth of the
Brotherhood. To meet the want of the Church in this
respect, the Annual Meeting held in Tennessee. in 1861,
appointed a committee to compile a new llymn Book.
That committee consisted of the following brethren
James Quinter, of Ohio; Samuel Garver, 01 Illinois
John Metzger, of Indiana; John Kline, of Virginia
and John II. Umstad, of Pennsylvania. But the vii-m
hers of the committee living so far from each other.
found it very inconvenient to co-operate together to ac-
complish the worlt committed to them, and confided it
to the undersigned. We felt the responsibility great
when we commenced the work, but had we anticipated
that responsibility as we afterward felt it, and the dim-




culties attending the undertaking, we would have do<
clincd it, could it have been done in arcordanee with a
seme of duty. It has given us a considerable amount
of perplexing labor. But the thought that in our hum «
ble labors we were serving the Church, and through it
tbs glorious Head of the Church, our Heavenly Master,
mingled some pleasure with our anxiety. The eompiler
regrets that remoteness of residence did not permit thl
other members of the committee to render more assist-
ance in the important work, thinking that could their
A:,-:pnrience and judgments have been brought to bear
upon it, greater satisfaction might have, been given to the
Brotherhood. But he assures his brethren that he has
sparet. no labor, or pains, or expense that his circum-
stances made available, to compile a Ilymn Book that in
his humble Judgment would best meet the wants of the
Church. In collecting materials for the work, his li-
brary of works on Ilymnology grew to nearly one hun-
dred volumes. The most of these afforded some hymns.
'I‘he books,however, hitherto in use amongr the brethren,
have formed the basis of the new book, and a large pro-
portion of the hymns in those books has been retained.
The compiler is aware that upon the idea as to the num-
Ewr of hymns a llymn Book should contain, a. difl'erenca
nt’ opinion obtains Some, in looking at a llymn Book as
being designed especially for public worship, and finding
.iiat the number of hymns used on oeca~ions of that
22ind is somewhat limited, think a large number of
mine is objectionable. But when it is remembered
that the Bible and Ilymn Book constitute the library of
some Christians; that the latter \- the only book of se-
ered poetry they Inssess; that it is not only used as )1
book to sing from, but is also read and studied with
pleasure and profit, the propriety ofliaving some hymns
beside those that are popular in the congregation, will
be acknowledged. Some Christians who sing but little,
Ind indeed some, who sing none at all, enjoy themselvnfl

very much in reading their llymn Book, and regaId it
as an excellent companion in retirement. llymns are
lyrical discourses generally addressed to the feelings;
and though usually used to L‘xrnizss feelings, they may
also l'izont'eh‘ them, and this may he done by reading
tin-m as well as by singing,r them, though not in the samn
dr'gl'ct). 'l'hc llymn Book now ott‘ered to the Bl‘ulh’lilnud
is in size, a medium between the two prevailing ex

llad the compiler consulted his own taste alone, ther
lave been hymns admitted which would have been omit-
wd, and some omitted which would have been inserted.
:1» has tried to keep before his mind the consideration,
that he was compiling a llymn Book for the llzse of the
Brotherhood and not for a few individuals only.

The dottrinal uharactvrot' the hymns has not ln-en diu—
rvtcardi-d, and it ishoped that nothing will he found in the
heel; that will materially conlliet with the teachings of
the gospel.

lu the arrangement of the hymns, these of the same
general (‘llill‘flCtCl‘ are brought together. This is more
natural and more CollYl‘lllt'llE than tlu- :tl'l‘:\llg4'lll('llt that
is founded upon the letters of the alphabet with which
they eomnu-nee. And a proper acquaintanve with the
arrangement adopted, and the help of tht- Alphabetical
lndex of Subjects, any one wishingr to St‘lwtt a hymn
adapted to any occasion, can readily do so. The Scrip-
tural Index will also he t'ouud useful in selecting hymns.

lt is rut-mumvmlml that in naming hymns to he sung,
the nuluhei'of the hymn, and not the page, he given.
As two or more hymns may uomnu-nc‘» on the same page,
if the page is given, the number also must, at times,
he given, and when both the number and page are given,
they may heeome confounded in the mind. To give the
number of the hymn is suiliuient.

"he uompiler thankfully acknowledges the sugges-
tions, counsel, and suleetitns with whieh he has been fu-



vored by the brethrvn, and though as h? is wdl aware
his work is not perfect, he hopvs it will give gr-nvral sat
isf‘uction to the Brotherhood. As the result of much
anxious and prayerful labor, it now goes to the Churolws
with his prayer to God that he may bless if, and mnkn
it minister to the promotion of the spirit of Christian
devotion in all the leparcmnnts of worship, and thereby

run a. holy influence upon the Churches, and through

hum upon the world, and thus contribute in some de-

ree to advance the (muse and kingdom of Chrst.

Disturb‘d their peace within;
No frowning storm their path o’ersprvnd.
While undeliled with sin.
