Excerpt from Lyra Sacra Americana: Or Gems From American Sacred Poetry; Selected and Arranged, With Notes and Biographical Sketches
Although such an unprecedented number of hymn books and works on hymnology have been published since 1860, that this might, not inappropriately, be called the hymnological decade of the nineteenth century, yet I can make no apology for adding another to the number, as I do not think that this department of literature has even yet received the consideration and honour it deserves. When man's higher nature and higher wants are considered, there is no literary subject that has pre-eminence over it, if there be any that equals it in true value; for NO one 1s so sure OF A lasting as well AS loving remembrance AS the author OF A good hymn. Watts, ivesley, Doddridge, Toplady, Cowper and Lyte will live in the affections of millions, when others of far greater learning.
