The work of revival which has been carried forward in this town for more than three years past, and which is still progressing, seems to call for a greater number and a more extensive variety of hymns than are usually found in collections of this kind . . . care has been taken to select those hymns which are best adapted to be sung in "times of refreshing from the presence of the Lord." It is fondly hoped that this book may be made userful as an instrument in exciting and perpetuating those glorious revivals of pure religion which so signally characterize this age in which Zion is breaking forth on every side in songs of praise. . .
