To those friends, who have kindly afforded us their aid in making this compilation, we would here express our thankful acknowledgments.
In the title of the book, we embody our leading idea and purpose in this enterprise, which have been to provide a collection, not of Jewish psalms or elegant songs, but essentially Christian hymns, pitched, so to say, after the grand master-tone of our faith, whatever intermingling subordinate notes they might have of joy or sorrow, encouragement or warning, praise or confession. We have striven that the high doctrines, duties, and promises of our holy religion might shine forth from these pages in their noon-day distinctness, and arrayed in all the charms of taste and melody, that the great Master might be honored with the love of his disciples, and the greater Father worshipped with the fervent adoration, praise, and thanksgiving of his children.

ACCORDING to thy gracious word
A charge to keep I have
Affliction is a stormy deep .
Again, from calm and sweet repose
Again our ears have heard the voice
Again the Lord of life and light.
Again we've seen the Sabbath day
A holy air is breathing round
A host of spirits round the throne
Alas! how poor and little worth.
All hail the power of Jesus' name .
All men are equal in their birth .
All nature dies and lives again .
All nature feels attractive power . .
All nature's works his praise declare
All-seeing God ! 't is thine to know
All ye nations, praise the Lord
Almighty and immortal King . .
Almighty God, in humble prayer ..
Almighty God, thy word is cast.
Almighty Lord, before thy throne
Almighty Maker! Lord of all
Am I a soldier of the cross
Amidst a world of hopes and fears
And can my heart aspire so high
And is the gospel peace and love
And is there, Lord, a rest
And now, my soul, another year.
An offering to the shrine of power.
Another day is past
Another day its course hath run .
Another six days' work is done
Arise, and bless the Lord. .
Arm of the Lord, awake, awake.
Arrayed in clouds of golden light
As body when the soul has fied.
As, bowed by sudden storms, the ros
As flows the rapid river .
Asleep in Jesus ! blesséd sleep..
As in solemn congregation . .
As o'er the past my memory strays
A soldier's course from battles won .
As the hart, with eager looks . .
As the sun's enlivening eye
As the sweet power that scents the morn
As twilight's gradual veil is spread
At thy table, Lord of life

Dark, dark indeed the grave would be .
Daughter of Zion, awake from thy sadness
Day unto day doth utter speech ,
Dear as thou wert, and justly dear.
Death has been here, and borne away.
Deathless spirit, now arise
Deem not that they are blest alone
Delightful is the task to sing .
