Excerpt from Sacred Praise: For Use in Gospel Meetings, Evangelistic Services, Sunday Schools, Prayer Meetings, and Young People's Societies
IX years ago we issued Songs of Faith and Hope. Three years ago we issued Songs of Faith and Hope, No. 2. There are many song books of many grades seeking a market.
The publishers have been justified in their venture by the sale in six years of nearly one million copies of Songs of Faith and Hope, Nos. 1 and 2. So far as we have been able to learn this is a larger sale than that of any other book of like character, save one. Songs of Faith and Hope met an instant response and quickly found an assured place in the work of the Church.
Another three years has gone by, and there is a demand for a new book of, like grade and price. Experience has taught us that the Christian public, whether old or young, does not like a large or expensive devotional book, it wants them smaller and oftener; in this way the latest and best compositions are introduced. Experience and good business sense both tell us that it is wise to send out another book under the same editorial auspices.
Prof. J. M. Black needs our indorsement even less than he needed it six years ago, but the experience of these years only emphasizes the fact that he is, in our judgment, the best man now engaged in doing this sort of work.
Sacred Praise has a list of contents which has been scrutinized from every standpoint with the utmost care. It goes out under the official sanction of the Church and is well fitted to serve the prayer-meeting, Young People's Meetings, Sunday Schools and Revival Meetings.
