"speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and chanting with your heart to the Lord;"
The following is an index to hymns from "Hymns and Spiritual Songs for the Little Flock" selected in 1856 and subsequently revised in 1881, 1932, and 1951. It should be stated that not only is this edition - 1951 - long out of print but as no copyright information is indicated anywhere in the hymn book it is felt that individual hymns can be reproduced as they are here for the enjoyment of Christians everywhere.
Something from the preface of 1881 should here be stated: "Three things are needed for a hymn book. A basis of truth and sound doctrine. Something at least of the spirit of poetry, though not poetry itself, which is objectionable, as merely the spirit and imagination of man; and thirdly, the most difficult to find of all, that experimental acquaintance with truth in the affections which enables a person to make his hymn (if led of God to compose one) the vehicle in sustained thought and language of practical grace and truth" and then, farther on, "The book is commended to Him who alone can give songs in the night."
