Excerpt from Book of Common Prayer: Hymnal Companion to the Prayer Book, Suited to the Special Seasons of the Christian Year, and Other Occasions of Public Worship, as Well as for Use in the Sunday-School and Family The book OF common praise, as a Hymnal, was compiled by members of the Reformed Episcopal Church with a loyal regard to the services and worship of this Church as set forth in its Prayer Book, and is w issued by the Reformed Episcopal Publication Society, Limited. It certainly meets a long-felt need in our communion. The compilers of this Hymnal recognized the principles laid down by the Hymnal Committee, in the General Council of 1879 - that a Hymnal is always a most effective and powerful preacher, and hence we have sought to make this which we w offer, present the great distinctive truths of the Gospel in the fullest, clearest, and most em phatic way. N o hymn has been allowed a lace that does t contribute its part to the attainment of this great end; while still we ave sought to present such hymns only as do this in such forms of expression as are worthy of the greatness of the theme in hand. We have variety without the encumbrance of too great weight of numbers, and have combined positiveness of evangelical truth with beauty of poetic thought, and force and clearness of expression. While it is probable-that some will look in vain through these pages to find some old or new favorite, it is still believed that every evangelical doctrine and every mood of Christian experience has its lyrical counterpart. Ln the collection will be found old hymns, hallowed by a thousand sacred memories, together with many of the best English and German hymns of recent use. The classification and arrangement makes prominent the great facts in the Christian year, as also the great truths in the Christian system and life, making the Hymnal the companion of our Book of Common Prayer. Its use will hence tend to nurture, t only a feeling of exalted and earnest devotion, but a sentiment of loyalty to our own dear Church.
