ACTS AND PROCEEDINGS

Of the General Synod of the Reformed Dutch Church, in North America, held at Albany, June, 1812..

REVISION of the Psalms and Hymns now in use in A

the Dutch Church, having been requested and referred to the General Synod, by the Particular Synod of New-York; and it being desirable that our selection of Psalms and Hymns should be improved and enlarged:

Resolved, That the Synod request the Rev. Dr. Liv. INGSTON to make a selection of Psalms and Hymns agreeably to the views expressed upon this subject; and they appoint the Rev. James V. C. Romeyn, James S. Cannon, Peter Steddiford and John Schureman, a committee to whom Dr. Livingston will submit the selection; but for the greater security in a work of such importance, it is resolved, that after it is adopted by the committee, it shall be reported to the General Synod and obtain their ultimate арprobation before it be published.

Acts and proceedings of the General Synod of the

Reformed Dutch Church, held at an extraordinary session, at New-York, October, 1813.

THE committee to whom Professor Livingston was requested to submit his selection of Psalms and Hymns, reported: That he had accomplished the work assigned him; that they have examined the same, and judge it to be a judicious and excellent selection; that they accordingly recommend it to the General Synod for their ultimate approbation, and suggest the propriety of having it immediately published and introduced into all our Churches.

The General Synod having received the report of the 'committee appointed upon the subject of the Psalms and Hymns, and having inspected the selection made by the Rev. Professor Livingston, agreeably to the request of the General Synod in their last session, do express their high satisfaction and decided approbation of the same. It is therefore resolved, That this selection be forthwith published and introduced into public worship in all our Churches. And the General Synod recommend the same to all families and individuals within their communion, to be adopted instead of the book which has hitherto been in use. It is further resolved, that the Catechism, Articles of Faith, and what has formerly been published with the book of Psalms and Hymns, be also added to the new edition ;-and that the copyright of the book be secured for the express and sole benefit of such students as may attend our theological lectures, and may need pecuniary assistance.

Resolved, That the Rev. Dr. Livingston be requested to superintend the publication of the first Edition of the new Psalm Book, and when published that he affis his name hereto.
