PREFACE.

Without nu;cb Lcsitatlou I accepted the proposal to o.lit the Hymuul with accom- pauyiug tuaes, being Riad oL tlie opportunity tbui proseuted oi piomoting •' vtie strvice of soaj iu tli.3 House ol tiie Lord." But uo Booncr bud I st t luystlf iu caruest to the work thau I bocanic coa.:ciou3 that, through lack of technical t:kill on uiy part, the aid ol professional musicians must be cought. Applications were accordiuj^Jy made to kad- iag composers of Hymn-music in England and our own country; by whoso co-opera- tion I am now abb to oflfor my brethren r. Hymual with suita'jb tune;. Did I not be- lieve that this book had merito of its own, I nhouLl not ventur j to assume tho responsi- bility of its publication. "What those merits ara, however, I must leave othcr-i to discover lor them.i2lve3, mrrcly intimating ihat my aim has been to provide tunes which ere fitted rather to the purposes of Divine wcr- Ghip, than aflaptcd to thi secular and popu- lar tastes of the d.iy. In othe; worJj, I have considered the v.-ants and wishes of the worshipper, rather than the fdicies of the connoisseur; and by special care to accci- tuation in the tunes selected, I have faitli- fnll}' trie.l to help those who use the Hvmnal in the holy service of Praise, " to sing with the spirit and to sing with the understand- ing also."

I may aJld that as no pains have been npared to reach t'lis end, I trust the result may prove that time and labour have not been misapplied; and that by ray own best en- deavours, I have contributed, with others, to promote tho interests of (jood congregational music.

It is now my pleasant task to acknowledge tho kindness nnd courtesy received from my clerical Irethren and musical friends.

To the Rev. Dr. Dykes, the R-^v. John Henry Hopkins, Sir George J. Elvey, Six John Goss, Mr. E. J. Hopkins, Mr. "W. H.

Monk, Mr. Henry Smart, Mr. 11. lledhead, j Dr. Cutler, Dr. W illcox, James Pt crce, Mus. liac, Mr. S. 13. Saxlou, M»-. George W. ; Warren, Mr. S. P. ^Varren and Mr. Henry I Wdsou, I return my sincere thanks for the ' proiupt and careiul manutr in whicu they , complied wiih my wish to compose tunes lor special hymns.

To the Kl^v. Drs. Muhlenberg, Geer and Hodges, Dr. Lowell Ma^:on, ^li-. J. W. A. Cluett,Mr. H. K. Oliver, Mr.I.F.Tuckcimau, M. D., Mr. N. L. Wiirren and Mr. L. II. Weis I am much indebted for the pirmis.'-ion to use tunes, several of which are now published for the liist time. I would gratefully ex- press my fbligaticns to the Eev. Jr.mes Da vies and other kind friends, vsho have added to the materials from which to make a selection of proper tunes.

To Mr. William W. Eourseau, the Organist of the Church of the Holy Cross, who has taken cuch a lively interest in my work, nnd has not only helped me by many timely suggestions but relieved me of much care and drudgery, with my Leaily thanks I most ccrdally refer a large ehare of what- ever Luccess may attend our cloteiy joined labours in the choice and adaptation of tunes. I am pi ased' thus publicly to recognize tho faithful and cfiicicnt ter^-ices of W. H. Walter, Mus. Doc, to v,hem I committed, with entire confidence in hia judgment and skill, the mi:sieal Lupcrvisicn ol tie whole work, which has been mur-h enricheel by his own excellent compositions.

And last ii crder, but not h att according to my appreciation of Fympathy and work, to Messrs. F. J. Iluntir.gton r.nd Ccmpany, the publishers, I acknowledge my obliga- i tions for their generous endeavour to furnish j every facility which I needed to nccomplish an object, which no less fondly than de- j voutly is associated in my heart with the 1 worship and glory of God.

4 To heal the sick stretch out Thine hand, And bid the fallen sinner stand ;

Shine forth, and let Thy light restore Earth's own true loveliness once more.
