PREFACE



Why another new book? There must be a reason or it would not have
been written.

For many years the compiler of this book was a pastor and sought to l>r
a diligent sermonizer. One of the difficulties he experienced after pre-
paring the sermon was to find suitable hymns. Many times the search
was long and not well rewarded. Sermons and hymns should be some-
what closely related, and to "scrape up relationship" was not always easy.
Many times he wished for "a more excellent way" to find the hymns that
were really adapted. One day, when looking over the shelves of one of
our Book Depositories, he found "A Concordance to the Hymnal of the
Methodist Episcopal Church," prepared by William J. Codvillc, of McKees-
port, Pa. A glance at its pages indicated that this was just what he
needed; so it was purchased and installed among the frequently used
books of his study table. So helpful did it become that it was not only a
great aid in selecting hymns for pulpit use, but was most valuable in the
study of the sacred songs of the church.

Appreciating its worth, he promised himself that if a new Bymnal
should be given to the church in his lifetime, he would aim to do lor others
in the ministry and for the student of the hymnology of the church what
had been done for him.

Every Bible student understands the value of the Concordance to the
Holy Scriptures, and would not try to study the sacred book without its
aid. What that book does in Bible study this book is intended to do in
the study of the Hymnal. That is why this ''Concordance to the Methodist
Hymnal" is now offered to the ministry and membership of the Methodist
Episcopal Church and the Methodist Episcopal Church South.

It is not claimed that the book is "complete and exhaustive." Every
important word — and some not so important — is used, but not every
time it occurs, for that would have made a book of too greal size. For
example, if the word kingdom is found two or three times in the same
hymn, it is used but once. Sometimes there is more than one important
word in a line; one of these is always used, and not infrequently all of them.
Occasionally there is a line in which no word stood out with special promi-
nence; even then some one is used, so that practically every line in the
Hymnal is represented in the Concordance.

But few explanations arc needed, as it is believed that the arrangement

is plain enough to speak for itself. Not only is the number of the hymn
given, but the small figure at the upper right hand indicates the verso used.

There are three indexes that follow the Concordance. One of first linos
shows in the left hand column, the number of the hymn in the new book,
while the number in the old hymnal is in the right hand column. If the
number is wanting in that column, it shows that it is one of the new
hymns.
