" IN PSALMS AND HYMNS AND SPIRITUAL SONGS, SINGING WITH GRACE IN YOUR HEARTS
TO THE LORD."
AMERICAN UNITARIAN ASSOCIATION.
UNIVERSITY PRESS: JOHN WILSON & Son,
THIS book is a revised edition of the Hymn and Tune
Book published by the American Unitarian Association in 1868.
The hymns and tunes that could best be spared are replaced by hymns and music, new and old, gathered from the ample resources supplied within the last ten years by composers and compilers of all denominations in England and America. To all whose contributions and labors have helped to enrich this book, our obligations are gratefully acknowledged.
While many hymns have been restored to their original text, some slight changes, established by familiar usage, have been accepted without note. Hymns with substantial variations from the original are indicated by the sign † attached to the author's name.
The collection has been made catholic and inclusive for varying moods and experiences, and for manifold phases of thought. Its aim is to present within moderate size, and with appropriate music, the best hymns in the English tongue.
To all who desire, with Jesus of Nazareth, to worship one God as Father, believing that the substance of all true religion is love to God and man, this book is respectfully offered.

Thrice Holy. Rev. iv. 8.
Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee;
All thy works shall praise thy name in earth, and sky, and sea..
Holy, holy, holy! all the saints adore thee,
Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
Thou who wast, and art, and evermore shalt be!
Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide thee,
Though the eye of sinful man thy glory may not see,
Bp. Reginald' Heber. 1897. t
