Excerpt from The Union Mission Hymnal, With Which Is Incorporated Hymns for Heart and Life
The best authorities on Mission Work have been laid under tribute, and their long and valuable experience has largely helped in determining what kind of Hymns have been, and are likely ... to be, most useful in Special Services. Several of the Hymns have been written for this work by able and generous friends.
It is possible some may think that the book should contain more of the old-fashioned Hymns, to which they have been long accustomed; but while many such Hymns are thus included (inasmuch as 110 Mission Hymnal would be complete without them), the size and price of this new Hymnal justify the omission of many favourite Hymns in order to permit the introduction of others which are more suited to the present purpose.
Included in this Hymnal are several Metrical Litanies, which have been written chie¿y by the Rev. T. B. Pollock, of Birmingham, to whom special thanks are due.
With regard to the music, the pieces selected, or specially written for this book will, it is believed, be acceptable to most congregations. In several cases where a new tune is introduced, an alternative old tune is given, which can be used until the new one is sufficiently known to be adopted in congregational singing.
