INTRODUCTION.

The General Conference of 1889 ordered the publication of a hymnal that should be fully adapted to the needs of our church. In compliance with these instructions, the publishing agent, Rev. W. J. Shuey, arranged for its issue. Rev. E. S. Lorenz, well and favorably known throughout the Church, was asked to edit it, and with the assistance of a thoroughly competent com- mittee, has accomplished his task. I have carefully examined it in everj part, and cannot see where any improvement can be made. It is pre-eminently a United Brethren Hymn - Book, providing as it does for every phase of oui characteristic church life. It combines the solidity and stateliness of the standard hymns of the ages, with the life and sprightliness of the modern gospel songs. The most recent songs are here for the young people, while the older members of the Church will hail with delight the reappearance of old songs dear to the hearts of many of us, because they are precious and good, and because our mothers sang them. Meeting every need of the public serv- ice, revival and social meetings, the Sunday-school, and the family, I can most cheerfully recommend this collection of hymns to our people, and trust that it will speedily be permitted to bring its help and blessing into every United Brethren church in our broad land, and beyond the seas, and that it will prove one of the many tender ties that unite our widely scattered members. J. Weaver,

Senior Bishop.

PREFACE.

To be useful, a hymnal must express the peculiar type of Christian lift characterizing the denomination it is to serve. The Church of the Unitec* Brethren in Christ emphasizes the necessity of Christian experience— exper imental religion, the fathers would have phrased it and recognizes revival effort as the characteristic phase of its church activity; hence, its hymna) must furnish ample expression for its full and varied Christian experience and large facilities for revival work. In attempting to do this, the othei phases of church life, which it has in common with other denominations, have not been forgotten or ignored, and it is hoped this collection of hymns and songs will be found as full and symmetrical as the church life it seeks to express.

In order to meet the needs of the many stages of literary and musical culture, hymns and tunes of the highest artistic merit stand side by side with songs whose practical value and spiritual purpose must atone for lack of literary and musical grace.

Doubtless many favorites will be missed from these pages, but the body of popular sacred songs is so large and rich that it was impossible to include everything desirable in so small a volume.

Typographical beauty has often been sacrificed to practical needs. The words are inserted in the music wherever possible. " Alternative tunes may be found on the same or opposite pages. A line drawn through a page indicates that the music for the hymn or hymns below it is found on the opposite page.

To the many brethren, whose number makes personal mention impossible, who kindly responded to a call for suggestions and advice, the thanks of the editor are due. While all could not be accepted, they have been very helpful, and have had large influence in giving character to the book. The valuable assistance furnished by the Advisory Committee deserves most kindly and hearty recognition. The owners of the many valuable copyright songs, in connection with which their names severally appear, will accept thanks for the kindness which so greatly enriches these pages.

That this volume will prove an effective instrument in the hands of the workers of the Church of the United Brethren in Christ for the accomplish- ment of great and lasting good, and bring to many hearts the same comfort and joy which its preparation brought to that of the editor, is his earnest hope and prayer. E. S. L.

Before Jehovah's awful throne,

Ye nations, bow with sacred joy; Know that the Lord is God alone; He can create, and he destroy.

2 His sovereign power, without our aid, Made us of clay, and formed us men ;

And when like wandering sheep we strayed, He brought us to his fold again.

3 We are his people, we his care Our souls, and all our mortal frame ;

What lasting honors shall we rear, Almighty Maker, to thy name ?

4 We'll crowd thy gates with thankful songs, High as the heavens our voices raise;

And earth, with her ten thousand tongues, Shall fill thy courts with sounding praise.

5 Wide as the world is thy command ; Vast as eternity thy love ;

Firm as a rock thy truth shall stand, When rolling years shall cease to move.

Isaac Watts.

4(3) All Men Invited to Praise God.

From all that dwell below the skies, Let the Creator's praise arise ; Let the Redeemer's name be sung, Through every land, by every tongue.

2 Eternal are thy mercies, Lord ; Eternal truth attends thy word ; Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore, Till suns shall rise and set no more.

3 Your lofty themes, ye mortals, bring; In songs of praise divinely sing ; The great salvation loud proclaim, And shout for joy the Savior's name.

4 In every land begin the song ; To every land the strains belong; In cheerful sounds all voices raise, And fill the world with loudest praise.

Isaac Watts, 1713. O Psalm 103. (8)

Awake, my soul, awake my tongue, My God demands the grateful song ; Let all my inmost powers record The wondrous mercy of the Lord.

2 Divinely free his mercy flows, Forgives my sins, allays my woes, And bids approaching death remove,. And crowns me with indulgent love.

3 His mercy, with unchanging rays, Forever shines, while time decays ; And children's children shall record The truth and goodness of the Lord.

4 While all his works his praise proclaim, And men and angels bless his name, Oh, let my heart, my life, my tongue Attend, and join the blissful song!

Anne Steele, 1760.

Come, oh, my soul, in sacred lays, Attempt thy great Creator's praise ; But oh ! what tongue can speak his fame? What mortal verse can reach the theme?

To form a robe of light divine,

Ten thousand suns around him shine.

God of my life ! through all my days My grateful powers shall sound thy praise ; The song shall wake with opening light, And warble to the silent night.

2 When anxious cares would break my rest, And griefs would tear my throbbing breast, Thy tuneful praises, raised on high, Shall check the murmur and the sigh.

3 When death o'er nature shall prevail, And all its powers of language fail, Joy thro' my swimming eyes shall break, And mean the thanks I cannot speak.

4 Soon shall I learn th' exalted strains, Which echo o'er the heavenly plains, And emulate, with joy unknown, The glowing seraphs round thy throne.

Philip Doddridge, 1740.

1 \J Psalm 106.

Oh, render thanks to God above, The fountain of eternal love ; Whose mercy firm, through ages past, Hath stood, and shall forever last.

2 Who can his mighty deeds express, Not only vast— but numberless? What mortal eloquence can raise His tribute of immortal praise?

3 Extend to me that favor, Lord, Thou to thy chosen dost afford ; When thou return'st to set them free, Let thy salvation visit me.

Now to the Lord, a noble song ! Awake, my soul ! awake, my tongue, Hosanna to th' eternal name, And all his boundless love proclaim.

2 See where it shines in Jesus' face, The brightest image of his grace ! God, in the person of his Son,

Has all his mightiest works outdone.

3 Grace ! 'tis a sweet, a charming theme; My thoughts rejoice at Jesus' name: Ye angels ! dwell upon the sound ; Ye heavens! reflect it to the ground.

4 Oh ! may I live to reach the place, Where he unveils his lovely face, Where all his beauties you behold, And sing his name to harps of gold.

Join, my soul, with ev - 'ry creat-ure, Join the u - ni - ver - sal song. Hail the Lord of our sal-va - tion ! Praise him for his love di - vine. Sound his praise thro' earth and heaven, Sound Je-ho-vah's praise on high.

Praise him, ev - 'ry liv - ing creat-ure, Earth and heav'n's unit - ed host.

FRST VERSE INSERTED IN MUSIC. J

Praise of Divine Love.

2 Thy bountiful care, what tongue can recite ? It breathes in the air, it shines in the light ;

It streams from the hills, it descends to the plain, And sweetly distills in the .dew and the rain.

3 Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail, In thee do we trust, nor find thee to fail ;

Thy mercies, how tender ! how firm to the end, Our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend !

4 Our Father and God, how faithful thy love ! While angels delight to hymn thee above, The humbler creation, though feeble their lays, With true adoration shall lisp to thy praise.

Sir Robert Grant, 1839. J. y Salvation to God.

Ye servants of God, your Master proclaim, And publish abroad his wonderful name : The name, all- victorious, of Jesus extol ; His kingdom is glorious, and rules over all.

2 God ruleth on high, almighty to save; And still he is nigh, his presence we have: The great congregation his triumph shall sing, Ascribing salvation to Jesus our King.

3 " Salvation to God, who sits on the throne," Let all cry aloud, and honor the Son ;

Our Saviour's high praises the angels proclaim, Fall down on their faces, and worship the Lamb.

q C Wesley, 1744.
