This book is adapted as much as possible to the spiritual condition and wants of seamen. One of the kind is necessary wherever public worship is held for the benefit of this valuable class of our fellow-men, and by mariners themselves, when “afar off at sea.” No pains have been spared to make it acceptable. It is hoped, therefore, that the work will be well received, not only by those for whose use it is particularly designed, but by all who pray, and are making exertion for the bringing them to the knowledge of the only and sufficient Saviour of sinners. It is sent forth with the prayer, that the King of Zion, who has said “ the abundance of the sea shall be converted unto thee,” will make it subservient to that glorious end.




After a careful examination of Mr. Davis's collection of Hymns for the use of Mariners, we have no hesitancy in recommending them as being judiciously selected and arranged, and as being superior to any col. lection of the kind that we have seen, and altogether worthy of being introduced into the churches for the benefit of seamen. Such a collection has been long wanted, and we believe the “Seaman's Hymn Book” admirably adapted to the object for which it is designed. New-York, Aug. 28d, 1825.

1. L. M. O,

All's well, or, The Lord hath dealt graciously with me.

Gen. xxxiii. 11.

1 The gracious dealings of the Lord

Fill up the volumes of his word;
And every new-born soul can tell,

Jehovah has done all things well. 2 Thy love is free, immensely great;

Thy blessings full, divinely sweet!
Thy kind protection and thy care,

Encourage hope and ardent pray'r. 3 Thy visits do my soul enfsame,

Thy sovereign love abides the same;
Thy purposes are fix'd and sure,
And trials make my heart more pure.

4 In all that ever has befell,

I still acknowledge all is well:
Gracious thy dealings, free thy love,

I pant to soar and praise above.
5 There shall I feel thy cheering rays,

There glow with warm seraphic praise ;
There join the num'rous blood-bought throng

2. C. M. Rippon's Selec.

The grcat question answered.

Acts ix. 6.



1 IS there in heav'n or earth, who can

A wretched mortal save?
Make a poor lep'rous sinner clean?

Redeem a helpless slave ? 2 Who can appease an angry

God? Relieve a burden'd mind? In whom a soul o'erwhelm'd with guilt,

May ease and safety find ? 3 Yes! there is one, who dwells on high,

That can do this and more;
A being of unbounded love

And uncontrolled power ; 4 Immanuel is his



Upon th' accursed tree,
Bore the vast weight of all their sins

Who, burden'd, to him flee.

5 But now he lives-he ever lives,

And pleads what he hath done :
Whilst God ten thousand crimes forgives,

Through his atoning Son.

6 Jesus! I to thy feet repair,

And there will prostrate lie;
Be thou propitious to my prayer,

And I shall never die.
