historically and inevitably composite, are so noted, and their sources are explained in the index of authors. In the musical settings similar pains have been taken to secure accurate and authorized readings, as appears in the index of composers. The verification of authorities has been made by Rev. Charles F. Russell, with assistance at the British Museum and elsewhere in England. Mr. Russell has also prepared the biographical indexes."

The book thus prepared is, in our judgment, a collection quite without parallel in excellence of hymns and tunes, literary accuracy, and beauty of form; and we have therefore obtained, by purchase from the University, the use of its plates and have adapted this undenominational book for use in our own churches. To this end we have omitted some hymns which are purely academic in character, or which do not accurately express the spirit of our worship, and have added some hymns which reflect religious sentiments and experiences not natural to the young men for whom the original book was designed. A few hymns for parish ceremonies and occasions not observed in the University Chapel have also been inserted. For these reasons in thirty-one cases hymns have been substituted for those in the University Hymn Book; and twenty others have been added.

Great pains have been taken to preserve the high literary and musical standards of the University Book, but for the changes in the present arrangement the University is not responsible. The words of the added hymns, like those derived from the University Book, have been carefully traced to their sources, and are here given in their original readings. In the musical settings similar pains have been taken to secure authorized readings.

FIRST LINE.
Before Jehovah's awful throne
Behold us, Lord, a little space
Beneath the shadow of the cross
Beneath thine hammer, Lord, I lie .
Be not dismayed, thou little flock
Beyond, beyond that boundless sea.
Breathe on me, breath of God
Brief life is here our portion .
By cool Siloam's shady rill
Call Jehovah thy salvation.
Calm on the listening ear of night
Christ the Lord is risen to-day
Christian, rise and act thy creed
City of God, how broad and far .
Come, kingdom of our God
Come, mighty Spirit, penetrate

Come unto me, ye weary
Come, ye thankful people, come
Day by day the manna fell
Dig channels for the streams of love
Draw nigh, draw nigh, Emmanuel
Earth, with its dark and dreadful ills
Eternal and immortal King
Eternal Love, whose law doth sway
Eternal One, thou living God
Eternal Ruler of the ceaseless round
Expectant of my Lord's command .
Father and Friend, thy light, thy love .

Father, in thy mysterious presence kneeling
Father, let thy kingdom come
