Excerpt from The English Hymnal
The english hymnal is a collection of the best hymns in the English language, and is Offered as a humble companion to the Book Of Common Prayer for use in the Church. It is not a party-book, express ing this or that phase of negation or excess,... but an attempt to combine in one volume the worthiest expressions Of all that lies within the Christian Creed, from those ancient Fathers who were the earliest hymn-writers down to contemporary exponents Of modern aspirations and ideals.
