Overview

This volume contains a large selection from Paul Gerhardt's "Spiritual
Songs." Every piece included is given in full, and is rendered into the
metre of the original. A few of the following translations have
appeared at various times during the last three years in different
periodicals. They have been revised for this volume. Several of the
hymns have been beautifully translated by others; and had the
Translator been compiling a volume composed of selections from various
authors, this might have formed a strong reason for not doing them
again, but to have omitted them from a volume like the present would
have been to give a selection from Gerhardt without some of his most
celebrated productions; besides, in the other collections where they
appear they are not all given in full, nor are they always rendered
into the metre of the original, save in those published with the music
attached. As far as the Translator is aware, the greater number of the
following songs have never appeared in an English dress before.
