SELECTED FOR THE USE OF THE PARISH CHURCHES
Richard Watts, Printer, Crown Court, Temple Bar.
AT THE SEVERAL SCHOOL-HOUSES; AND BY THE PARISH-CLERKS
THE Psalms and Hymns contained in this volume have been selected by the united labours of the Clergy of the Parish of Islington, from various approved Collections.
The Editors cannot but express their obligation to the Rev. H. F. LYTE, for permitting them to enrich their Selection with several Psalms extracted from his original Versions of the Psalms of David *.
It has been the endeavour of the Editors to give the Hymns in their original forms: though it has been. difficult, and often impossible, to ascertain the authentic versions, amidst the numerous varieties which have appeared. In a few cases, also, alterations, which appeared to have been so generally adopted as to have acquired the character of established emendations, have been admitted.
A systematic arrangement of the Hymns has been adopted, together with Titles and appropriate Texts for each Hymn, in the hope of assisting those who desire to sing with the understanding:" (1 Cor. xiv. 15.)
The Editors humbly trust and pray that the Collection thus prepared by them, for the use of their Congregations, may be blessed by the Great Head of the Church, as a means of animating and leading the adoration of His worshippers; and of thus advancing the edification of that "Church which He purchased with His own blood."
"The Spirit of the Psalms, or the Psalms of David adapted to Christian Worship, by the Rev. H. F. Lyte, M.A., Minister of Lower Brixham."
