Selections of Psalms and Hymns are already so numerous, that any addition may perhaps appear unnecessary. The Compiler of the present volume has, however, met with none, in his judgment, so fully calculated to promote uniformity in this part of divine worship as to forbid the present attempt.

His leading object has been to select those portions of every Psalm which best illustrate its general subject, and are calculated to be practically useful; together with such Hymns as, elevating and warming the heart, without inflaming the imagination or offending the judgment, may at once, by their expression and sentiment, commend themselves both to the educated and to the unlettered Christian. Portions of four verses only have been chosen, in compliance with the custom which has obtained in most of our Churches, except where the unity of the subject required an addition.
