NEW HYMNS AND TUNES,

WITH

MANY POPULAR AND STERLING OLD ONES,

FOR THE

Home Circle and Sabbath-Schools.

PUBLISHED BY THE
AMERICAN TRACT SOCIETY,

150 NASSAU-STREET, NEW YORK.

PREFACE.

CHILDREN'S hosannas are as pleasing to the Saviour now as in the days of his flesh, and to aid them in this noblest use of their happy voices is a work worthy of the highest talents and the best endeavors. The hymns and tunes in this volume, both old and new, have been selected from a far greater number, in view of their real and permanent excellence—to promote not only the happiness, but the salvation of the young. It is confidently committed to Him we love to honor, and to all who delight in his praise.

Marks of musical expression are intentionally omitted, that leaders may exercise their own taste in this essential matter. A refreshing variety, too, ought to be secured by the skilful use of solos, duets, quartets, and semi-choruses.

A large portion of the hymns and tunes are copyrighted; and no one is at liberty to publish any of them without the owner's consent. We acknowledge with pleasure the courtesy of several composers and owners who have given us the use of their tunes. We would also call attention to the charming original contributions of Rev. A. A. GRALEY, Manlius, N. Y., who is the composer of both words and music of the pieces bearing his initials; and to the fine harmonies of Mr. HOWARD KINGSBURY, who has assisted in selecting and revising all the music.

W. W. R.

ENTERED according to Act of Congress, in the year 1865, by the AMERICAN TRACT SOCIETY, in the Clerk's Office

of the District Court of the Southern District of the State of New York.

Oh how they sweetly sing, “Worthy is our Saviour King ;” Loud let his praises ring, Praise, praise for aye.

2. Come to that happy land,

Come, come away.
Why will ye doubting stand,

Why still delay ?
Oh, we shall happy be,
When, from sin and sorrow free,
Lord, we shall dwell with thee,

Blest, blest for aye.

3. Bright, in that happy land,

Beams every eye:
Kept by a Father's hand,

Love cannot die.
Oh then to glory run;
Be a crown and kingdom won;
And bright, above the sun,

We'll reign for aye.
