Excerpt from The Christian Sunday School Hymnal: A Compilation of Choice Hymns and Tunes for Sunday Schools
The book which we now send forth is the result of an effort to carry out this recommendation of the General Convention. As soon as the trustees had performed the previo... us duty of revising the Hymnal for the churches, they entered into a contract with the Christian Publishing Company, of St. Louis, by which said company assumed the financial responsibility of issuing such a book, and will pay a royalty on each book sold, which will go into the treasury of the General Convention as a mission fund; The trustees appointed a committee of well-known brethren, in whose sound judgment and musical taste they had confidence, to select such music and words as would meet the end had in view by the Convention, and thereby greatly improve the character of the singing in our Sunday Schools. The result of their labors we now present to the brotherhood, and to the Christian public generally, hoping that it may meet with a generous reception, and succeed in filling a want that has long been felt by the Sunday Schools of the land.
Our thanks are due to'the few music publishers who have generously allowed us the use of such of their pieces as we desired, free of charge. Most of the music herein contained, however, has been paid for, much of it at a high rate. We have not spared any necessary expense to make a superior book.
It is the purpose, both of the trustees and publishers, to make such gradual improvements from time to time, in the book, as may be necessary to keep it in the front line of Sunday School Hymnals. We now invoke upon the work the blessing of Him, in whose honor and for whose praise it has been prepared.
