"Let the people praise thee, O God; let ALL the people praise thee." Ps. lxvii. 5.
NO. 1122 CHESTNUT STREET.
This collection of Hymns, prepared by a Committee of the Young Men's Christian Association, under the advice of several eminent clergymen of different evangelical denominations, is published for them by The American Sunday-school Union.
rjlHE want of a small collection of PRAYER MEETING HYMNS
has been greatly felt in the meetings which are now being held in various parts of our country, and this little book is offered in the hope that it will meet the want of the Christian community in this respect. It is believed that no collection of hymns in present use among evangelical Christians has been overlooked in making this selection. No one who loves to "serve the Lord with gladness, and come before his presence with singing," will fail to find here those words in which he is accustomed to "Praise God in his sanctuary."
Christian brethren! Sing these hymns with your whole heart and voice. Send up to the throne of the Divine Majesty, the full chorus of praise from glad and grateful hearts. "Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness," "speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord."
