Page  iii !.NTRO0DUC TION. Ix preparing this volume, the Editors have had several aims, some of which have, at some times, crossed each other; and the less important have been occasionally, but unavoidably, sacrificed to the more important. The first aim of all has been, to select hymns of a truly devotional character. We have been unwilling to lose some stanzas, which, though inferior in poetic value, are yet, in themselves or in their associations, adapted to quicken religious feeling. We have deemed it unwise to part with such endeared and spiritual, though homely expressions of religious thought and feeling, as are found in Hymns 31, 220, 490, 492, 853, and 923 of this Collection. With the same aim, we have omitted many popular religious songs, which, though of high lyrical merit, are still, in themselves or in their associations, poorly fitted to nurture the Christian life. We are not insensible to the excellence of such songs of Thomas Moore as those commencing with "Like morning, when her early breeze," and "The bird let loose in eastern skies," and "This world is all a fleeting show;" but we are more sensible of the uncongeniality between such effusions of such a Muse, and the scenes of communion with God, in his temple and on his holy day. But while we have aimed to make the chief: merit of this volume consist in its thoroughly Christian spirit, we have not forgotten that its lyrical value should have the precedence over all except its religious excellences. It is not meant to be a Book of Theology in Qh tla Is "I4 _0 -

As we have inserted some stanzas because their spiritual value prevailed over their lyrical defects; so we have omitted some stanzas because their poetical faults cannot fail to impair their religious influence. We have sought for devotional poems, rather, than for short rythmical sermons,- narrative, expository, or didactic. In laboring to compile a volume of sacred lyrics, we have also endeavored to select such as are peculiarly adapted to the worship of the Most High in his Sanctuary. A true hymn for "the house of the Lord," is an expression of worship in a form adapted to utterance in song. All lyrical compositions produce their full effect only when they are accompanied with music; and those which are designed for the Sanctuary develop their highest power only when they are uttered in musical cadence, and assume the form of a direct address to God, or, at least, a form predisposing the soul to such direct address. "Modern hymns," says a German author, "are not lyrical, but didactic. They only preach in rhyme; and thus they reach the head, but not the heart. If, now, the sermon preaches, and the singing preaches, and the prayer preaches, the monotony of the service will occasion weariness; but if the sermon preaches, and the hymn sings, and the prayer prays, there will be a beautiful variety to exercise and interest all the faculties of the soul." In order to make this volume a manual of worship, as well as for worship, and to fit it distinctively for " the service of song in the house of the Lord," we have collected a large number of hymns, which are direct addresses to the Most High. We have given to these a prominence above the hymns which lead indirectly to prayer and praise. This is seen in the Classification of Hymns: -Book I. Part I. Sect. 1, 2. Part II. Sect. 1. Book II.

Page  v INTRODUCTION. As we have aimed to compile a volume which may be fitly called a' Sabbath Hymn Book," we have sought for the choicest metrical ve.rsions of pass*es from the Bible. The inspired volume, containing the best records of devotional experience, must furnish the best materials for every good book of Psalmody. It erpresses the tiue sentiment, in its accurate proportions, and it always suggests even more than it expresses. The inspired poems are the standard for all Christian hymns. As we depart from the Biblical standard, we are in danger of introducing a morbid pietism in the place of a healthful piety. Althoughli we have not divided this volume into a distinct Book of Psalmis, and a distinct Book of Hymns, yet we have endeavored to insert every good version of the Biblical Psalms which seemed inimportant for the Biblical associations and influence of the volume, and we have introduced some paraphrases of other portions of the inspired text, which have not been ordinarily found in American Hymn Books. Examples of these are fbunid in Hymns 1, 95, 245, 313, 321, 339, 641, 689, 779, 867, 868, 881, 918, 1273, 1275. We have not arranged the versions of the inspired Psalms in a separate book, because, first, many of these versions are too general anid free to be called Psalmns, in distinction from Hymns; secondly, some of the inspired Psalms have never been translated into metrical versions worthy of the name, and at the same time adapted to the worship of a promiscuous Christian assembly; and therefore a book of English paraphrases of Psalms for the service of song must be, at present, incomplete; and, thirdly, the separate arrangement of the Psalms and Hymns interferes with the logical and rhetorical unity of the Hymn Book, and this unity is important for its practical usefulness; and, fourthly, the Bibli cal Index will supply, in part, the advantage of preserving a distinct classification of the Psalms, and will show that many passages in the Prophecies, Gospels, and Epistles, are in fact Psalins of devotion, and, on the ground of intrinsic lyrical and spiritual merit, are worthy of being distinguished by being col lected into appropriate books. Indeed, the Editors were, at one time, somewhat inclined to arrange the hymns of this volume according to the Biblical sources whence they wvere derived. As the devotional influences of a Hymin Book are increased by its being associated with the phrases and the authority of inspired B3 .~

Page  vi INTRODUCTI0O. men, so they are increased by the association of the book with the writings and the names of all the pious in past ages. Therefore the Editors have endeavored to select those ancient hymns, which, though devoid of Biblical authority, have yet been sealed with the approbation of the most devout worshipers; those hymns which have been used by the Church in the periods of her most earnest and progressive religious,life. We have secured several new translations of Greek, Latin, and German hymns, which have acquired a standard value in other ages and other lands; and, breathing the fragrance of ancient piety, have come down to us with inspiriting associations.} Several of them have a rich history. They have been sung on the eve of battle, at the death-bed and the burial of saints, in scenes of the most heart-rending persecution, or of ecstatic triumph. Some of these new translations, and other ancient hymns of this Collection, are Nos. 46, 96, 200, 220, 263, 293, 336, 451, 685, 686, 765,- 809, 899, 1051, 1203, 1230, 1281, 1282, 1284. Such relics of the Church of the past, cannot but be dear to the Church of the present and the future. We cannot but love thehymn of grateful delight in Christ, by Bernard (Hymn 686): "Jesus, thou Joy of loving hearts," and the sacramental hymn of Aquinas (Hymn 1051), - "0O Bread to Pilgrims given! " and it stirs the heart to know that Hymn 899 "Fear not, O little flock, the foe" was the song of Gustavus Adolphus, sung before the great battles that he fought for the Protestant Reformation. What more affecttug burial hymn can be found than Hymn 1203, "The pangs of death are near," which has come down to us from beside the graves of ancient saints? And upon the subject of the Judgment, it deepens our thoughts to meet with stanzas like those of Hymn 1281, - "That great day of wrath and terror,,, - which is the root of the old "Dies Irae," in all its versions, and which has proved its worth by a life of a thousand years. There

Page  vii INTRODUCTION. are many such hymns, we think, Which the Church "will not willingly let die.": It may be thought that some of the old English hymns in this volume are too quaint for modern Psalmody. But these were among the chosen hymns of our own ancestors. They have been sung, with tears of penitence or of joy, by men and women whom we love to venerate. One of these (Hymn 31), " All people that on earth do dwell," was the old favorite version of the one hundredth Psalm; and was the first English hymn to which the tune of the Old Hundredth was applied by our English forefathers. It has, therefore, great historical value, and a special adaptedness to one of the noblest:tunes in the "service of song." It is beautifully fitted for certain celebrations of events that occurred in the remote past, and for some of our anniversary Jubilees. In preparing a Hymn Book for the best religious influence in the Sanctuary, the Editors have aimed to introduce the ripest fruits of modern Hymnology. As we have sought to compile a Book of Poetry, in distinction from prose; and of poetry for worship, in distinction from songs of general application, so we have aimed to furnish a book of real life, in distinction from mere imaginative poetry; a book of various Christian experience, and containing the most valuable records of what religious men have actually felt, and have expressed in lyrical form. But the various experience of the Church cannot be exhibited without the aid of her modern, poets. The experience of the present age has a new individuality. Hymnology is receiving constant accessions from men now living. Some of its choice treasures are recent. This is especially true of Hymns upon the Person and Work of Christ.. Certain productions of living hymnologists have already taken a strong hold of the affections of the Church, as expressive of an existing Christian life. They will be precious to the hearts of Christians in'a coming: age, and will be permanent contributions to our Christian literature. We have introduced into this volume many hymns which have never been used in American churches, and some of which have never been previously published. The "Sabbath Hymn Book" has been enriched by several contributions prepared expressly for it, by vit *,f

Page  viii INTRODUCTION. the Rev. Horatius Bonar, of Scotland; and by many of his poems, abridged and accommodated to the use of our Psalmody, after a full consultation with him, and with his very kind permission. It has been also enriched by several hymns, some of them written immediately for it by Rev. Ray Palmer, D. D., of Albany, and others translated expressly for it, by him, from the original Latin. Among the hymns which we have not seen in any American Manual for worship, may be named the following selection. viz.: Hymns 175, 233, 237, 239, 260, 264, 304, 315, 320, 335, 336, 343, 367, 372, 373, 415, 418,421,444,446,460, 623, 653, 716, 717, 747, 748, 753, 761, 771, 792, 868, 899, 902, 936, 977, 980, 987, 1019, 1032, 1169, 1174, 1177, 1182, 1203, 1204, 1228, 1230, 1244, 1262, 1269, 1270, 1271, 1273, 1281, 1289, 1290. The Editors of this Manual have spent no small amount of labor upon the relative proportion of its Hymns. Where other aims have not conflicted with this, we have designed to give the best place to the best themes; and among the different hymns on the same topic, to give the first place to the hymns which, all things considered, are most congruous with the spirit of worship. Thus, under the title of " Worship," we have given the first place to hymns of direct address to the Godhead; arranging subsequently to these, " Meditations upon Worship," and "Calls to Worship." Under the title of the "Atonement," we have thought it obvious that, after the historic hymns on Gethsemane and the Cross, the superior position should be assigned to such as Hymn 299, "Not all the blood of beasts," - and such as Hymn 300, — "There is a Fountain filled with blood," rather than to hymns descriptive of the influence of the Atonement. Under the title of "The Holy Spirit," we assign the last place to a didactic and descriptive hymn on the coming and office of the Holy Spirit, and the first place to a strictly devotional invocation of the presence of the Holy Spirit in the Sanctuar.v. Under the title of "Faith in the Atonement," we have reserved for the last position, the definitive hymns on the nature Vill

Page  ix INTRODUCTION. of faith; and under the title of "Prayer," we have assigned the beautiful poem of Montgomery, on the nature of prayer, to the least prominent position. Other instances also occur, in which we have made the logical order subordinate to the chief aim of the volume, as a book of worship, in distinction from a book of religious meditation. We have striven also to preserve the "Sabbath Hymn Book" from unseemly excrescences, and to give an especial fullness on those topics to which a healthy Christian mind turns most frequently, and with the most earnest affection. Hence, those parts of the book which are devoted to the Person and Work of the Redeemer, have assumed a prominence above the other parts. Here are the richest fruits of poetry, as here is the most fertile root. Many of the hymns on the Life, Sufferings, and Example of Christ, are the most appropriate hymns which can be selected or written for the administration of the Lord's Supper, and for the occasional Charities of the day. Hymns upon an occasion, are not necessarily the hymns best adapted to a devotional commemoration of that occasion. Very many of the hymns on the great doctrines of the Gospel are better fitted for such a purpose, than are a majority of the hymns written expressly for it. Special hymns for special occasions are apt to be artificial, meager, cold. They are often utilitarian hymns, calculated for a precise end. But the songs inspired, in actual Christian experience, by the Being and Perfections of God, and by the vast truths revolving around his redemptive work, are the true outflowings of sacred poetry. They come because they must come, and men sing them because they must sing, and the soul is borne upward by them, without any calculation, into a height of Christian life, which animates and emboldens it for any and every special form or incident of duty. While the predominant aim of this Manual is to be a Sabbath Hymn Book, "for the service of Song in the House of the Lord," it is also designed, subordinately and incidentally, to aid in the more private social devotions, in the conference room, the family, and the closet. Hymns are inserted which are less appropriate for the Congregation in the temple, than for the more familiar and domestic worship. Such a hymn as No. 1199, of this Collection, may move too slowly for the happiest influence on a large assem PB+ IX

Page  x INTM)DUCTION. bly, joining in public worship; and yet it is finely adapted to cheer a bereaved household at the hour of evening prayer. Such hymns as Nos. 138, 237, 460, 614, 856, of this Collection, may appear to require, for their full appreciation, a mood of mind too meditative for the quick expression of sympathy with a multitude in song; and such as Nos. 215, 361, 444, may seem to be too densely crowded with incidents,,to be well sustained by the emotion of a promiscuous assembly; yet, for private devotion, or where "two or three are gathered together," these hymns are eminently fit, and suggestive of certain experiences which no others would express as well. The occasions may seem to be-rare, on which such hymns as Nos. 418, 761, 792, 969, would be as becoming to the Sanctuary as to private worship; yet, in the seclusion of the sickroom, no others could take their places.: There is a considerable class of hymns which, like No. 747, express individuality of religious experience, more intensely than many would deem to be natural in the meditations of public worship; yet such hymns express realities of religious life, and the more the tone of even public worship can rise to the honest utterance of such hymns, the more it will express of a life that is "hid with Christ in God." We question the wisdom which would invariably say "We," rather than "I," in "the service of Song," even by the great Congregation. The various purposes of the "Sabbath Hymn Book" have come into most decided conflict, in the arrangement of -the hymns. The songs of Zion disdain a strictly logical classification, and yet the logical element may be so applied as to facilitate a convenient order., We have.endeavored to arrange the hymns so as to exhibit most vividly the mutual relations of the themes, and to render it easy for the worshiper to find, at any time, the hymn most appropriate to his wants. In promoting this end, we have attempted to adjust the hymns according to their first, most obvious, and most abiding impression on the feelings. The First Division includes those hymns, which, on the whole, are more objective than subjective; although it includes many stanzas which, apart from their history and associations, might perhaps be classified under the subjective, more properly than the objective The Second Division comprehends those hymns in which the feel XI

Page  xi INTEODUCTION. ings or relations of the worshiper towards his Maker, Ruler, Redeemer, and Judge, are brought forward into a more prominent position than is the character of the Godhead. Still, in the Second Division are many hymns which, apart from their history and associations, might perhaps be more properly classified among the hymns pertaining to~ God, than among. the: hymns pertaining to man. In the general, however, the hymns having direct reference to the Most:High will be found in the First Division, and the hymns having immediate reference to human duty and destiny will be found in the Second Division. It is of essential importance- to note the fact, that, while the hymns are classified according to the doctrine or the duty to which they have explicit regard, still it is very often true that other hymns than those distinctively appropriated to that doctrine or duty, may be more fitly sung during the services in which that doctrine or duty is the theme of discourse. For example: several of the hymns on "Worship," or on the "Attributes of God," are better suited to prepare the mind for a sermon on the" Sovereign Decrees of God," than are the Hymns 233-242. And two or three of the hymns on the "Sovereign Decrees of God"' are more beautifully adapted to introduce a sermon on "Affliction," than are the majority of Hymns 926-956. There are very few hymns on the "Death of an Infant," which are not either offensive to many devout men, on account of some doctrinal error, or repugnant to a sensitive taste, on account of vague, or vapid, or prosaic statements; and yet there are some such hymns as Nos. 933, 1204, 1276, of this Collection, which are delicately appropriate to such an event, without any express allusion to it. It has been in a constant view of this feature of the arrangement, that the "Alphabetical Index of Subjects," pages 825-867, has been prepared. That Index notes the spirit and the general impression of the hymns, as well as their more precise reference, which is exclusively noted in the "Classification.of Hymns," pages 813-824. This peculiarity in the Alphabetical Index gives rise, often, to two classes of references to hymns; the one embracing hymns more specific and direct in their bearings upon the theme than the other. The'more specific are placed first in order, and usually are conformed to the references under the same I xi

Page  xii INTRODUCTIO,'. or the corresponding theme, in the "Classification of Hymns," and are separated from thjie second class, by the sign =. Yet, the Alphabetical Index being necessarily more minute in details than the Classification, this distinction between the more and the less specific is by no means uniform. In the majority of cases, as will be seen, the strict numerical order of references is preserved. It has also been our aim, in the construction of the Alphabetical Index, to make it, as it professes to be, an Index of Subjects, and not an Index of Words. Prominent themes, therefore, are made the leading objects to the eye, and, when it is necessary, subordinate themes are arranged under these. The alphabetical order is almost uniformly adopted; but, in one or two instances, it is designedly abandoned in the arrangement of the subordinate themes, because a different principle of arrangement was so obviously more convenient, as to justify the exception. An instance of this occurs under the theme "Christ -Events in his History." We have supposed that the utility of the Alphabetical Index would be increased by the compilation of certain "Selections" of Hymns, not upon a given topic, but appropriate to a given occasion, or class of worshipers. Such selections could not be numerous, without defeating the object of the Index by giving it a cumbrous length. But a few are inserted under the themes -" Burial of the Dead," "Children and Youth," "Morning Worship," "Evening Worship," "Ordination of Ministers," and others of similar generalness of character, which require, for practical usefulness, that an Index should rather specify subordinate topics, with their appropriate hymns, than merely name the few hymns upon the main topic. In many instances, also, where brief texts from the Scriptures are of frequent recurrence in the structure of hymns, distinguislhing them as "motto-hymns," we have indicated them by introducing the texts in the Alphabetical Index, under the appropriate theme. The Editors of this Manual have spent much time in selecting those readings, which are the best in themselves, and also the best adapted to actual use in our churches. These are commonly the xii

Page  xiii INTRODUCTION. original readings. In general, the Author's words should be pre ferred to others. This is especially the fact in those hymns which have been consecrated by long and reverential usage. It is im possible, however, always to retain the original forms and phrases of hymns. There is no modern Hymn Book which has altogether retained them. Some alterations are indispensable. Without them, many valuable hymns would fall into disuse. It is not gener -lly known how numerous are the deviations from the originals, in hymns which now profess to be standard. Besides, an omission of a stanza is often the most serious alteration of a hymn. It affects often the whole shading and coloring of the original. But from many of the best hymns, there must be omissions, or the hymns could not be used at all. The Editors of this Hymn Book have admitted no changes for slight reasons, and few without obvious necessity. The majority of the alterations, which they have adopted, have already displaced the originals in the usage of English an d American Churches. To abandon them now, wouldI be an unwise innovation. In many instances, an alteration of aL hymn has been a nearer approach to the original than that hymn itself had made. Thus, a popular lyric, "Jerusalem, my happy home," - has, in its second stanza, "Where congregations ne'er break up, And Sabbaths have no end." This prosaic couplet, which has no authority in the original, is changed in the Sabbath Hymn Book (Hymn 1231), to "Where evermore the angels sing, Where Sabbaths have no end." This couplet is an approach to the original well known antique,. which has, for one of its stanzas, " There trees for evermore bear fruit, And evermore do spring; There evermore the angels sit, And evermore do sing." Sometimes a dull, uncouth line in a Biblical hymn is exchanged xiii

Page  xiv INTRODU.CTION. for a line expressed more nearly in the words of the text from which the hymn was derived. Thus, in Hymn 53, the phrase " Within the tents of sin," is a nearer approximation to the original Psalm than the phrase " Of pleasurable sin." In some instances, both the old and the new forms of popular hymns have been retained. Examples of this are seeln in Hymns 300 and 301; also in Hymns 1221 and 1222; and in Hymns 1253 and 1254. The favorite Hymn by Cowper, " There is a fountain filled with blood," we have given entire, because it is so much endeared to the Christian world, and because the omission of the last two stanzas is an injurious alteration of the hymn in its spirit, unless the fifth stanza, when made the last, be altered as in Hymn 301. The titles of the hymns, in this collection, have been arranged with reference simply to naturalness and suggestiveness; and this has led to a diversity of kind in the titles. In common with several of the Editors of English Manuals of Psalmody, we have, in the majority of cases, chosen a brief text from the Scriptures, as the most suggestive of the sentiment of the hymn, and congenial with the spirit of worship. But often a hymn has already entitled itself, in the usage of the Church, by its first line. In other instances, some striking clause in the hymn has seemed to be more expressive of its character than any equally brief passage from the Bible; and by adopting such a clause as a title, we have aimed to avoid the danger of forced applications of Scriptural language. In some cases, also, a plain definitive title has appeared to be more natural than any other. We have chosen to sacrifice any supposed advantage, arising from absolute uniformity, to the superior excellence of ease and diversity. In the use of Scriptural titles, we have been sensible of the peril of confounding, in the reader's mind, hymns written upon certain passages from the Bible, and those merely congruous with such passages and suggestive of them; and this evil we have endeavored to avoid, by subjoining to the title of a hymn a reference to the chapter, or the xiv I

Page  xv INTRODUCTION. chapter and verse, in cases in which the Author has professed to found the hymn upon a Scriptural passage, and in no others. It is a minute matter, and yet one which is perhaps worthy of a word, that our use of capital letters, in the titles, has varied according to the diverse usage respecting original and quoted language. Few of the incidents to the compilation of a Book of Psalmody occasion greater difficulty than the decision of questions of authorship. In reference to many hymns, no uniformity exists, in this respect, among our standard Hymn Books, In some cases, hymns are credited to Authors to whom they certainly do not belong; in others, they are ascribed to Authors on very doubtful authority; in others still, as in the case of many hymns attributed to the Wesleys, the authorship is only that of translation; and yet again, some hymns have come down from a remote period, so changed that they cannot, w fairness, be accredited to the Authors of the originals. We have seldom ventured upon conjectural decisions of authorship, but have chosen to leave without a name, those hymns, the authorship of which seemed to us to be doubtful, or unknown; and where hymns have been very materially changed, we have distinguished them by appending the sign t to the Author's name. The names of Authors we have preferred to insert in the Index of the First Lines of Hymns, rather than to append them to the hymns themselves, the latter method seeming to us to be scarcely conducive to the spirit of worship in the service of Song. The Editors have aimed, in the construction of the Indexes of this volume, to render them a practical help to worshipers, and especially to those on whom it may devolve to conduct the services of the Sanctuary. We have therefore made these Indexes as copious as our limits have allowed. The Biblical Index contains references to the hymns already noticed, as being founded by their Authors upon certain passages of the Bible; and a larger number of references to hymns which are suggestivelof Scriptural passages, but not constructed upon them. The first of these classes of hymns are distinguished in the Biblical Index by an asterisk prefixed. In the typography of this volume, the Editors have desired to fmcilitate the cultivation of Congregational Singing, and have xv

Page  xvi INTRODUCTION. therefore made more numerous elisions, than might otherwise b deemed necessary. The Orthography adopted is that employed by the Publishers o' the Work, in other volumes from their press. The present volume of Hymns is to be accompanied with volume of Tunes, adapted to the Hymns, and entitled, "Th. Sabbath Tune Book;" and is to be followed by a volume contain ing both the Hymns and the Tunes, and entitled, "The Sabbat' Hymn and Tune Boo' Both of these volumes are designed t facilitate Congregational Singing. In both of them will be give the Musical Notation appropriate to the Selections for Chanting which constitute one of the most important parts of the presen Hymn Book. It is hoped that the Biblical and Ancient Hymn inserted on pages 763-812 of this Manual, will help to resto.the primitive and truly delightful practice of chanting the praicof God, especially in the identical fomns of speech which hSpirit has indited. We now offer " The Sabbath Hymn Book" to the Churches invoking the blessing of the Great Head of the Church upon oi, labors, that they may meet the wants of devout worshipers, an especially that they may be found conducive to the spirituality oi "The Service of Song in the House of the Lord."

When shall I come and ap- pear be- fore - God? 3 My tears have been my meat day and night, While they continually say unto me, I where is thy- God? 4 When I re- member. these things, I pourI out my I soul- I in me; 5 For I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, With the voice of joy and praise, with a mul titude that kept- holy- I day. 6 WHY ART thou cast down, I O my |soul? And why art thou dis- quiet- ed in I me? 7 Hope I thou in I God: For I shall yet praise him for the help of his- countenance. 8 OH, SEIND OUT thy light and thy truth: I let them lead me; Let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and I to thy [ taber- na- I cles. 9 Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto God my ex- I ceeding I joy: Yea, upon the harp will I praise I thee, 0 God, my I God. i0 WHY ART thou cast down, I O my I soul?
