Having yielded to Miss Cary's importunity that this Preface be written in my own name, and contain the statement that much of the labor has fallen upon my hands, I cannot be denied the pleasure of saying that Miss Cary has frequently and carefully reviewed every line of this volume with me, and that to her fine poetic taste the Christian public must feel indebted for much that appears in this book, and perhaps still more for what has been excluded.

“CHURCH of THE STRANGERs,”
CHARGE to keep I have,
2 Arm me with jealous care,
2 In Memory of Jesus. S. M.
(By JAMES Montgomery, England, born 1771; died 1854. A paraphrase of Luke xxii. 19.]
Aco. to Thy gracious word,
This will I do, my dying Lord, –
* 2 Thy body, broken for my sake,
8 Remember Thee and all Thy pains,
4 And when these failing lips grow dumb,
3 Surrender at the Cross. G. M.
[By Is AAc WATTs, D. D., a, Non-conformist English minister, born 1674, died 1726. This hymn was written in 1709.]
LAS 1 and did my Saviour bleed?
2 Was it for crimes that I have done,
Amazing pity! grace unknown
3 Well might the sun in darkness hide,
4 Thus might I hide my blushing face
5 But drops of grief can ne'er repay
4 Morning. L. M. [By Bishop KEN, of England, born 1667, died 1711. Written for the Winchester School. The last stanza has probably been sung more frequently than any other four lines in the language, and is, by some of the best critics, pronounced the finest Doxology in the English tongue.] LL praise to Thee, who safe hast kept, And hast refreshed me whilst I slept; Grant, Lord, when I from death shall wake,
I may of endless light partake.
2 Lord, I my vows to Thee renew:
3 Direct, control, suggest this day, All I design, or do, or say,
That all my powers, with all their might,
4 Praise God from whom all blessings flow :
5 Evening. L. M.
2 Forgive me, Lord, for Thy dear Son,
3 Teach me to live, that I may dread
4 O may my soul on Thee repose,
5 Praise God, from whom all blessings flow:
