IN bringing this volume before the public, the only apology offered is that there has long been a demand for it. Not only have the Christian sisterhood, for a considerable length of time, been sending out appeals for some one to under take the work of collecting and publishing the sacred songs of woman; but numerous members of the devout brother hood, recognizing and appreciating her labor in this line, for the praise and glory of the Master, have united in the demand.

Woman IN sacred song is designed to be chieﬂy a reference book for the home and library, embracing about. Hymns, dating from the year 1546 to the present time, and including the sacred verse of upwards of 820 authors.
