From the book: While it very generally is admitted that Dr. Watts' Psalms and Hymns, possess a variety and excellency transcending any other single author, it at the same time is as generally felt, and acknowledged, that there are many deeply interesting subjects, and highly important occasions, to which he has not adapted any Hymns, whatsoever. This deficiency, it is true, is amply supplied by sundry approved authors in divine poesy, whose names it is not needful here to mention. But still a judicious selections, comprising a due portion of the best productions contained in the books, of these approved authors, is highly requisite, because all these Hymn Books would be both too expensive and too burdensome. This selection, while recommended for extensive variety, for devotional correct sentiment, and in many instances, for truly sublime poetic versification, yet is in no wise designed to supercede, but only as supplementary to Watts' Psalms and Hymns.
