Excerpt from Offices of Worship and Hymns: Principally for Use in Schools; With an Appendix of Tunes With the exceptions stated below, the hymns in the first edition have been retained in this. Many desirable changes suggested themselves, both as regards the arrangement and omission of hymns, and the introduction of new ones, but it was on the whole deemed best to make as few of these as possible, inasmuch as a large number of copies of the first edition is still in use. Besides verbal or other slight corrections in the text of the hymns, which have only been adopted after a careful examination of standard authorities, the following are the alterations made in this edition: In Office of Worship No. IV, the sentence, "May Thy holy birth" etc., with its response, has been omitted, as the idea intended to be conveyed was not always clearly understood. In the Hymns, Nos. 221 and 281 are new, the one having, in the first edition, been a repetition, and the other was rejected because of its difficult metre. Four Scriptural litanies have been added to the Offices of Worship. They have been taken, with some modifications, from other collections. A few new hymns have been added after the Doxologies. In accordance with various suggestions to that effect, the names of some tunes, and the books in which the Peculiar Metres are found, are given in foot notes. The full titles of these books are given below. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
