SONGS OF PRAISE has been carefully prepared with one aim in view—to furnish a book of sacred song adapted to the needs of Churches and Christian Associations in social worship. Many of its hymns are also in the larger collection, the Carmina Sanctorum, and in such cases the same tunes will be found, in almost every instance, at the same opening. Many hymns, however, have been added, especially such as are adapted to seasons of religious interest, and such as emphasize Christian aspirations and the activities of the Christian life. The musical adaptations also have been carefully studied to meet the requirements of social worship.

The same thoroughness of editing which is a marked feature of the Carmina Sanctorum will be found to characterize this book, and the copious indexes will, it is hoped, not only aid in ready reference, but also enhance the literary value of the book.

Copyright music or hymns must not be taken from this volume, for the sake of publication, without the permission of those who own the same.

Songs of Praise."

JOB xxxviii. 7.
2 Songs of praise awoke the morn,

When the Prince of Peace was born;
Songs of praise arose, when He
Captive led captivity.

3 Heaven and earth must pass away,

Songs of praise shall crown that day;
God will make new heavens, new earth,
Songs of praise shall hail their birth.

4 Saints below, with heart and voice,

Still in songs of praise rejoice;
Learning here, by faith and love,
Songs of praise to sing above.

5 Borne upon their latest breath,

Songs of praise shall conquer death;
Then, amidst eternal joy,
Songs of praise their powers employ.

The love of God shed abroad in the heart. 4 2 Come, fill our hearts with inward 1 My God, permit me not to be strength;

A stranger to myself and Thee; Make our enlarged souls possess, Amidst a thousand thoughts I rove. And lea the height and breadth and Forgetful of my highest Love.

Of Thine immeasurable grace. [length 2 Call me away from flesh and sense, 3 Now to the God, whose power can do One sovereign word can draw me thence

More than ourthoughtsor wishes know, I would obey the voice divine, Be everlasting honors done,

And all inferior joys resign. By all the church, thro'Christ, His Son. 3 Be earth, with all her scenes, withdrawn:

Rev. Isaac Watts (1674-1748), 1709. 3

Let noise and vanity be gone;
Delight in Worship.

In secret silence of the mind 1 Far from my thoughts, vain world, be

My heaven, and there my God, I find. Let my religious hours alone; [gone;

Rev. Isaac Watts, 1709. Ab Fain would mine eyes my Saviour sec: I wait a visit, Lord, from Thee. 5

Matt. xviii, 20. 2 My heart grows warm with holy fire, 1 “Where two or three, with sweet accord And kindles with a pure desire;

Obedient to their sovereign Lord, Come, my dear Jesus, from above, Meet to recount His acts of grace,

And feed my soul with heavenly love. And offer solemn prayer and praise; 3 Blest Jesus, what delicious fare, 2“ There,” says the Saviour,“ will I be,

How sweet Thine entertainments are: Amid this little company;
Never did angels taste above

To them unveil My smiling face, Redeeming grace, and dying love. And shed My glories round the place.” 4 Hail, great Immanuel, all-divine, 3 We meet at Thy command, dear Lord,

In Thee Thy Father's glories shine: Relying on Thy faithful word:
Thou brightest, sweetest, fairest One, Now send Thy Spirit from above,
That eyes have seen, or angels known. Now fill our hearts with heavenly love.
