A BOOK which should be adapted to the exercises of social worship, in the lecture-room, the prayer-meeting, and the family, has been regarded by many as a desideratum. The preferences expressed, however, by those who felt the want, have been so various, both as to the sort of tunes to be selected and their arrangement, that it has been no easy matter to decide what would be most generally acceptable. The Board, has attempted, however, in accordance with the recommendation of the last General Assembly, “to do what in their judgment is best adapted to supply the wants of the church."

The psalms and hymns contained in this “Social Psalmodist” are selected wholly from the Assembly's collection as now used in our churches. The tunes are from the larger book published by the Board, entitled "The Presbyterian Psalmodist.” The psalms and hymns have been arranged on pages opposite to such tunes as were suitable to be employed in singing them. In three or four instances a hymn has been inserted opposite to two tunes, either of which is well adapted to it. This was occasioned by a paucity of suitable hymns in the collection, of those particular metres. The several indices appended add much to the convenience and value of the book.
