There are extant Hymn Books containing excellent Hymns and Spiritual Songs. Thee books have their respective excellencies, and give credit to their authors or compilers. The demand for books of this kind having teen very great cf late. Giving to the happy revival of religion in many towns in New-ENGLAND, several book-fillers applied to the Editors for advice, which of the many selections of hymns extant it would be most advisable to reprint. On reviving different compilations, with a view of answering this question, the Editors conceived that a volume might be compiled better adapted to the tape of pious minis in this country than any they have seen. They were urged to attempt such a selection by book-fellers., and also by several pious people. An additional motive to tie attempt was, an expectation that a small fum of money might be. annually raised, from the tale of the books, for the support of Mission- Aries in the new settlements.
In making this selection, the Editors have endeavored to adapt it to the use of Christians in their closets, families, and private religious meetings; and also to the feelings of persons in every fate of religious impression.
