COLLECTED BY THE
REV. H. W. BURROWS, B.D.,
PERPETUAL CURATE OF CHRIST CHURCH, ST. PANCRAS.
It will be observed that, in this Collection, those Hymns only are assigned to the Church seasons, the use of which it will be well to confine to certain occasions; while other Hymns, which are indeed suitable for the Christian seasons, but need not be limited to one portion of the Church's Year, will be found referred to at the end of the Special Hymns.
In making the selection, regard has been had to week-day as well as Sunday services.
Hymns, that are found too long, may be shortened by omitting the verses within brackets.
For the Hymns numbered 9, 17, 89, 102, 103, 116, 117, and 118, the Compiler is indebted to Miss C. Winkworth's “ Lyra Germanica,” published by Longman and Co.
No. 3, a translation by the Rev. Dr. Irons, and Nos. 22 and 122, translations by the Rev. J. M. Neale, are Mr. Masters' copyright, and printed by his permission.

FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS.
8, 7, 4. Lo! He comes, with clouds descending,
Once for favoured sinners slain; Thousand thousand saints attending Swell the triumph of his train :
Hallelujah! Jesus comes, and comes to reign. Now redemption long expected
See in solemn pomp appear ; All His saints, by man rejected, Rise and meet him in the air;
Hallelujah! See the day of God appear. Yea, amen! let all adore Thee,
High on Thine eternal throne ; Saviour, take the power and glory, Claim the kingdom for Thine own;
Oh, come quickly, Hallelujah! come Lord, come.
