Imost universally admitted that Dr, IVatts's 
id H} nv s po.-Pi sh an excellency and variety 
Hce him tar he yond any singit author ; and, 
mble opinion, the} are of such sterliiio; worth, 
lection, however excellent, phonid {-npircrde 
Ithem. It is. liowcver, as gonerall V adniit- 
there am many subjects for which Doctor 
» provided nohymitf. To see this d<Ticiei icy 
amongst pordo- baptist churches, has iH-entho 

And some have been supplied bj fncnds. As this 
▼ork has been the labor of years, and the choice of 
many thousand hymns, it will, I trust, give satisfac* 
tioQ to the church of God. Thougli 1 have, of course, 
the sentiments peculiar to that denomination of chris- 
tians with which providence has placed me ; yet I anr 
not without hopes that a selection from the best aii- 
tbon in these United Kingdoms and America, will 
nieel with general approbation. 

This work) like Doctor Watts^s fourth book, ii 
arranged in an alphabetical order. Each new subject 
begins with, L. M., C. M., S. M., Szc. The first alphas, 
faetical order contains the Perfections of God ; thfc 
second, the Characters and Titles of Christ; the 
third, the General Subjects. 

I have endeavored to ascertain the author of every 
hymn. In some cases my inquiries have been fruitle8l^ 
and I have consequently said. Anon, (anonymous,) 
Thoae verses which may, for the sake of brevity, be 
omitted, without destroyinor the unity and cormectioa 
'of the faymn, arc included in crotchets. [] The lines 
or TCises marked with single inverted commas, are 
those which I have deemed nccessai^ to add, for the 
•ake of giving a fulness or compression to the whole. 
The occAsional alterations which will be observed ia 
■omc hymns, are not, of course, intended to lessea 
their excellency, but to suit tbcm to a particular sub* 
jcct for which they were cot originally designed; or 
to give a greater smoothness to IIjc versification. Af. 
ter all, I am ready to acknowledge tiiat many of the 
werses are rather r/wm^ than poctny; and, while they 
deprecate the seventy of criticism, must rest their 
daiois to regard on their sentiment and spirit. They 
wii), as far as I can judge, be found full of the doc- 
^■*"^ ^^-nc^ nd the expericocc o{ ibosfe to whoia 


Christ, in all his Characters, O/Ticcf, and ll'Intior 
is precious. In these superior cxcfJIciicio^, this n\ 
tion is, I liopc, equal to any that has }rt nppr.-aie; 
Hiid will) H-]th Doctor iratls*s Psalms and Hymn?, 
four books, be sufficient for any ctiiirch of Chri>t, 
aiij circumstaucos, and on all subjr'rt:>. 

The subjects in this volume, which are variouF, p.; 

adapted to console the s^airit and awaken the sinnrr- 

are suited equally for the public worship of God. t! 

doaet, and the family. And, as singing in faniiiics 

ao nncommon, thou<;h necessary part of worship, 

embrace this opportunity of presenting to c.'ic read< 

ilie words of an old writer :— ** As the increase or d 

cay of christian piety is generally accompanied wit 

the use or ueglect of family worship, so the duty 

more or less defective as singing in families is nio] 

ar less used. If christians would but consider tl necessity and uscfuliici^s of this duty, anti l! 

decay of religion and piety that attends the neglc 

of it; and if they had a due regard to their own soul 

the good of mankind, and the glorj of Ciod, snrei 

thej could not make so ligiu of it. 1 wish that a 

ifho make a profession of religion would moro ser 

au?]} consider the happiness that resulis from it. Tli 

aloset is a sweet employment, hut we ^hou^i not, b 

toy means, cause family woi'ship and siriijing to 1: 

neglected thereby. Why should we he ashamed to l< 

our Dejg;liboiirs know that we owned and praised Go 

io our families as well as in our churches ? The fcT 

of bein^ thought sinctdar appeai-s to he one grej 

cause of this neglect. If those persons would consicU 

how great a Benefactor Almighty God is to then 

they would find no reasonable plea for the neirlect c 

it- Let every one consider that the most ready an 

effectual means to make it uuirersal is., for ever

may ^lorif} our Father which is iu heaven. I appe 
to any retigknis pcri<on, whciher lijey have not be( 
much affected when (us they occasionally walked tl 
•Streets) they have heard a lamily thus employed. Tl 
occasion of the Jailor's conversion, was by the sia 
]i>g oi' Paul and Silas; and wc know not how mat 
.persoub ma} be converted by our practising: ihis dut] 
and this 1 may say, that it is a very ready way 
diseounteiiance profane so lij;? and to promote rcli^ic 
-O that it could be said of us, as it was of the prin 
tive chris'iaris. who, instead of profane songs, u^ 
nothing but spiritual and divine h)nms; so that, ( 
St. Jerom relates of the pl:ice where he lived,; y< 
■could not go into the field, but you miij;ht hear ti 
plou^rhman at his hailciujaha, the mowf'r at his hymi 
and the vine dres^ser si.i<;ing David's Psalms/' 

I deem it inncceHfiRry to make any apolos^y i 
■takiug many of the Ibllowing hvmns from authors w 
difler in doctrinal sentiments from myself, and t 
churches with which I am connected. The hymi 
ihcmselves, superior in their kind, and on subj'^'Cts 
irhich all real diristians agree, must and will be thi 
own apology. 

Committing all my imperfect, but well meant labo 
to the blessing of God the Father, Son, atid Ho 
Ghost, whose honor alone has, I trust, been my m

christian church, I remain with unceasing; affectic

Or crumble me to dust.

Deep may it be imprest ! 
And may thy spirit (irmly ejrave 
This truth within my breast !

Anri dare the proudest foes. 

5 Yes, For thy arm shall be my strength, 

And thhie Almighty pow'r 
Shall well fuJfjJ ihy profnhes,

And thou wilt bind th' immortal crovrn

[1 JESUS, ih' incarnate God of love, 
Rules all the shining worlds above; 
And tho' his name the heavens transcend. 
Yet he is still the sinner^s friend. 

2 Before the rolling skies were made, 
Or nature^s deep foundations laid, 
He saw our fall, and did intend 

To shew himself the sinner^s friend.] 

3 Behold, the condescending God 

A while forsakes his bright abode ; 
To our mean world see him descendf 
And groan and die the sinner^s friend- 

A When the appointed hour was comcf 
He burst the barriers of the tomb ; 
Then to the skies he did ascend. 
Where still he lives the sinner's friend. 

5 Ye mourning souls, to Jesus come — 
Cast off despair, there yet is room ; 
To his dear hands your cause commend. 
Who only is the sinner's friend.

3 His love no end nor measure knows. 
No change can turn its course; 

Immutably the same it flows 
From one eternal source. 

4 When frowns appear to veil his face. 

And clouds surround his throne, 
He hides the purpose of his grace, 
To make it belter known. 

5 Aod when our dearest comforts fall 

Before his sovereign will, 
He never takes away our all— - 
Himself lie gives us still ! 

^ Our sorrows in the scale he weighs; 
And measures out our paius ; 
The wildest storm his word obeys— 
His word its rage restrains!

Hiding' Place,.,.hRmh xxxii. 2. 

1. HAIL, sovVcign love, that first began 
The scheme to rescue fallen man ! 
Hail, matchless, free, eternal grace, 
That gave mj soul an hiding* place. 

2 Against the God that rules the sky 
I fought with hand uplifted high ; 
Despised his rich, abounding grace, 
Too proud to seek an hiding-place. 

[3 En wrapt in thick Egyptian night. 
And fond of darkness more than lights 
Madly I ran the sinful race, 
Secure without an hiding-place.] . 

4 But thus th' eternal counsel ran, 
*' Almighty love arrest that man ; 
I felt ihe arrows of distress. 

And found I had no hiding place. 

5 Indignant justice stood in view, 
To Sinai's fiery mount I flew ; 

But justice cry'd with frowning face, 
^ Thj3 mouoitain is do liiding-placc.'* 


• Ere loog a lieaveuly voice I beard, 
Aad mercy's angel-t'oriD appeared ; 
She led me oo with geutie pace. 
To Jesus, as my hidiug-place. 

7 On him Almighty vengeance fell, 
That must liave sunk a world to hell ; 
He bore it for the chorien race, 
And thus became their hiding-place. 

S Should storms of thundering vengeance roll, 
And shake the globe from pole to pole, 
No flaming bolt shall daunt my face, 
For Jesus is my hiding-place. 

9 A few more rolling suns at most 
Will land me safe on Canaan's coast ; 
Where I shall sing the song of grace. 
And see my glorious hiding-place,

1 LIKE Bartimeus, we are blindi 

Enwrapt in nature's night ; 
The grossest darkness veils our mind. 
For sin prevents the sight. 

2 But lo ! the Lord from heaven is come 

To open sinner's eyes ; 
To make his wond*rous mercy known. 
And heal their maladies. 

3 Come then, ye blind, and beg, and pray. 

And in the Lord believe ; 
For who can tell ? perhaps to-day 
You may your sight receive. 

4 Jesus of Naz'reth passeth by- 

He is the stnuefs livt\ifi\ 

Call on \na name, and wait and crj, 
He will jour Bult attend. 

^ Should sinners say *^.hold je jtMir pe«c€^ 
^' Nor dare to make so free,** 
The loader cry, and never cease, 
*' Have mercy. Lord, on me." 

4i Your vorthless^rments leave behind; 
Go to the Lord of light; 
Trust in his name, however blind» 
And he will give you sight.

As he reposM his weary head, 

He saw ia vision, with surprise, 
A ladder reaching to the skies. 

2 Ascending and descending here. 
The angels of the Lord appear ; 
And from die top Jehovah spake, 
And thus in sweetest accents brake : — 

3 "I am thy God, and thee Til bless, 
*• And kepp tliee safe in ev'ry place ; 
•« By night and day I will defend, 

•* And be to thee a constant friend." 

4 We in this mystic ladder trace 
A view of Jcpus and his grace ; 
In him all blessings arc bestow'd, 
In him we find access to God. 

[5 ' By faith we see the angel band 
Descend and rise at God's command ; 
To bless the children of his grace, 
In cv'ry age, in ev'ry place. 

C[ In ev'ry strait his eyes are there, 
To see the giief that makes the tear; 
He'll crush his foes beneath his fee\,

The humble sinner turns. 
His brightest deeds he counts but dross. 
And o'er his vileness mourns.

Inscribes his love and fear ; 
He loves the law in ev'ry part, 
But takes no refuge there.

At parting. Fareii;e£?....ActsxviiL 21. 

3 O ! HAPPY day, when saints shall meet 
To part no more — the thought is sweet; 
Ko more to feel the rending smart. 
Oft felt below, when christians part. 

2 O happy place I still must say, 
Where all but love is done away; 
All cause of parting there is past; 
Their social feast will ever last. 

3 Such union here is sought in vain, 
As there, in ev*ry heart, will reign; 
There separations canH compel 
The saints to bid the sad farewell. 

4 On earth, when friends together meet. 
And find the passing moments sweet; 
Time's rapid motions soon compel. 
With grief to say-«-dear friends, farewelL

When saints shall meet in heaven, their hom 
Eternally with Christ to dwell, 
Nor ever hear the soundy farewell.

Tor ike Nativity of our blessed Lord and SaviottVf 

Luke ii. 8—15, 

WHILE shepherds watch their flocks by nigt^t^ 

AU seated on the ground, 
The angel of the Lord came dowo. 

And glory shone around. 

" Fear noC'sawl he, for mighty dread 

Had seiz'd their troubled mind ; 
*'Glad tidings of great joy I bring 

** To you and all mankind. 

*' To you, in David's towni this day, 

*'Is born of David's line, 
f^ The Saviour, who is Christ the Lordj» 

**And this shall be the sign. 

<< The Heavenly Babe you there shall fmd^ 

*' To human view display d, 
<^A1I meanly wrappM in swathing bandS;» 

'* And in a manger laKL'^ 

iThus spake ^e seraph, and forthwitlff 

Appeared a shiniov throng 
Of angels praising God, who thus 

Address 'd their joyful song: 

«* Att fipry be to God on high, «• 

** And to tfie eanh be peace ; 
^* Good will, henceforth, from heaven tQ mefK 

<* Begin. and|Kev«r reaso^" 

The Work and Contention of Heaven^ 


1 IN heavenly choirs a question rose, 
(That 8tirrM-up strife will never close ;) 
What rank of all the ransom'd race 
Owes highest praise to sovereign grace? 

2 Babes, thither caught from womb and breast, I 
Claimed right to sing above the rest: 
Because thej found the happj shore 
They never saw nor sought before. 

3 Those that arriv'd at riper age. 
Before they left the dusky stage. 
Thought grace deserv'd yet higher praise, 
That wash'd the blots of numerous days. 

is Anon, the war more close began, 

TV hat praising hnrp should lead the van; 
And which of grace's heavenly peers, 
Was deepest run in her arrears. 

5 "'Tis I," said one, " 'bove all my race, 
" Am debtor chief to glorious grace ;" 
" No," said another, *' hark, I trow, 
"I'm more ubligM to grace than yoa." 

B ** Stay," said a third, " I deepest share 
"In owing praise beyond compare; 
** The chief of sinners, you'll allo^', 
*' Must be the chief of singers now.'* 

7 " Hold," said a fourth, " I here protest, 
*'My praises nuist outvie the best; 
*' For Fm, of all the human race, 
" The lii^\\esl \x\\t^tle of $;race." 


**For T, of all the race that fell 

" Deserv'd the lowest place in hell.^ 

A soul that higher yet aspirM, 
With equal love to Jesus fir'd, 
"'Tis mine to sing the highest notes, 
" To love, that washVl the foulest blots.* 

" IIo!" cry'd a mate, " 'tis mine I'll proved 
" Who sinnM in spite of light and love, 
<' To sound his praise with loudest bell, 
" That sav'd me from the lowest hell." 

[1 " Come, come," said one, " Til hold thy pletfi 
" That highest praise is due by me; 
*' For mine, of all the sav'd by grace, 
•* Was the most dreadful, desperate case/* 

12 Another rising at his side, 

As fond to praise, and free of pride, 
Cry'd, '' pray give place, for f defy 
" That you should own more praise than I:; 

13 "1*11 yield to none in this debate; 
*• I'm run so deep in grace's debt; 
" That sure I am, I boldly can 

** Compare with all the heavenly clan.'^ 

14 QMick o'er their head a trump awoke, 
"Your songs my very heart have spoke ^ 
" But ev'ry note you here pi-opale, 
"Belongs to me above you all." 

15 The list'ning millions round about 
"With sweet resentment loudly shout—' 
" What voice is this, comparing notes, 
" That to their song chief place allots : 

16 " We can't allow of such a sound, 

" That you alone have highest ground, 
" To 8Wfr the royalties o^ gctic^-. 

Wo chim the same ?idoito§. v^^^ 


17 What! nill do rival singer yield 
He has A oiatcli upou the field ? 
4( Come then, aod let us all agree, 
** To praise upon the highest key/' 

18 Then joiutlj all the harpers round 
In uiind unite, with solemn sound, 
And strokes upon the highest strings 
IMade all the heavenly arches ring : 

19 Ring loud with hallelujahs high. 
To him tliat sent his Son to die ; 
And to the worthy Lamb of God, 

That lov'd and. wash'd them in his blood. 

20 Free grace was sovereign empress crown'd^. 
In pomp with joyous shouts around ; 
Assisti.-tg angels dappM their wings, 

And sounded grace on all their strings. 

21 The emulation round the throne 
IMade prostrate hosts, (who ev'ry one 
The liumblest place their right avow.) 
Strive w ho shall give the lowest bow» 

22 Tlie next contention without vice 
An)i» !g the birds of paradise, 
Alade ev*r\ glorious warbling tliroat 
Strive who should raise the highest DOte> 

23 Thus in sweet, holy, humble strife^ 
Along their endless, joyful life. 

Of Jesus all the harpers rove. 
And sing the \\onders of his love. 

24 Their discord makes them all unite 
In raptures most divinely sweet j 
So great the song, so grave the basf«J 
Melodious mv]&\c fvUs the plaee.
