LONDON: SAVILL, EDWARDS AND CO., PRINTERS, CHANDOS STREET,

COVENT GARDEN,

PREFACE.

THE “Religious Song Book” is not put forth as a collection of sacred poetry, but rather of such sacred pieces as are suitable to be sung, and were written for that purpose. It is intended for recreation in the home circle on the Sabbath, rather than for congregational use; and, consequently, the plan of numbering the pieces and arranging them in arbitrary sections has not been adopted. The monotony of several pieces on the same subject following each other in succession is thus avoided.

Should the reader fail to find any favourite song in the following pages, he is referred to the companion volume, “The Moral Song Book”—the aim of the Editor having been to include in the two volumes all the favourite of the old blended with the choicest gems of modern writers. Tor permission to include the latter the Editor desires to returil his sincere thanks, both to the several authors-including several high dignitaries of the Church-and the publishers in whom the copyrights are vested.
