OT TRIS collection of Hymns, prepared by a committee of the Young Men's CBRISTIAN ASSOCIATION, under the advice of several eminent clergymen of different evangelical denomina tions, is published for them by Thx AMERICAN SUNDAY-SCHOOL UNIOX.
THIS Collection of PRAYER MEETING HYMNS
was prepared in the spring of 1858, to meet a want then apparent to all who frequented devotional meetings. The hymns which are contained in it are gathered from all the collections in use among Evangelical Christians, and are appropriate for all occasions of Christian worship. This little book has been used in the daily prayer meeting, the firemen's meeting, the church evening meeting, the prison, almshouse and penitentiary. It has cheered the afflicted believer in the chamber of sickness; the voice of praise has been sounded in the words of its hymns, in the mountain cabin, the coal mine, the railroad car and the steamboat. Multitudes of Christian worshippers in the tent and in the open air meeting have praised God with the words of its hymns; and in innumerable instances has it been blessed to the spiritual edification of those who have used it. The words of Scripture which preface these hymns have spoken peace and comfort to the soul of many a believer, and have afforded themes for earnest and pointed exhortations in the prayer meeting.
