This Collection of Hymns for the use of the PROTESTANT CHURCH of the UNITED BRETHREN, consists partly of translations from the German, and partly of original English compositions. The former are marked with an asterisk.
An INDEX containing the first line of each verse, and a TABLE of Tunes are subjoined.
May all who use these Hymns, delight in, and experience at all times, the blessed effects of the apostle Paul's advice, (ErHESIANS, v. 18, 19,) “ Be filled with the Spirit, speaking to yourselves in Psalms, and Hymns, and spiritual Songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord,” yea anticipate already, whilst in the body, though in an humble and imperfect strain, the song of the innumerable company of angels, and the spirits of just men made perfect, (HEB. xii. 22, 23.) who being redeemed out of every kindred and tongue, and people, and nation, and having washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb, (Rev. v. 9, and vii. 14,) are singing in persect harmony (Rev. v. 12-14,) “Worthy is the Lamb that was slain, to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing, forever and ever." Amen.
