Excerpt from Hymnologia Christiana, or Psalms and Hymns Selected and Arranged in the Order of the Christian Seasons
The Psalms are chieﬂy extracted from the Oxford (parker), Cambridge (deighton and Bell), and Cleveland Psalters. But they include also many of the best passages found in the two authorised Versions, and a few by other translators.
Of the Hymns, about a hundred, more or less, are translated from Latin originals of the Early and Mediteral Church: nearly the same number from the Christian poets of Germany: the remainder are by various authors, of the English Church and other religious societies.
The Psalms and Hymns are arranged, according to their subjects, under the several seasons of the Christian year, regard being had not only to general topics, but also to the Epistles, Gospels, Collects, and sometimes to the Lessons of the Church. But, as most hymns are applicable to more than one season, and many to all seasons, I have sub joined to the Preface on Index of subjects, by reference to which the reader will discover at a glance all those which are suitable to each occasion. It were to be wished that a greater number of good hymns existed in the Church relating to the characters and events of Scripture, and also to the parables of the New Testament.
