In public worship it directly affects millions of people every week; awakening, educating, and sustaining their spiritual life, and guiding them, quite as effectually as sermon or prayer, to an understanding of Christian truth; whilst its influence upon the individuals who turn to it in privacy for the nurture of their inner life is no less pronounced.
My story is international in its compass, but its aim has been to show how the hymns of many lands and many ages have contributed to the treasury of worship-song enshrined in our present-day English hymnals.--Preface. [Suggest a different description.]
