1. The number of the page has been restored to its appropriate place at the top of the page. The numbers of the Psalms and Hymns continue unaltered.

2. The confusion of numbers at the top of the page, particularly in Rippon's Selection, is prevented, by omitting the numbers on the inner margin.

3. Numerous typographical and grammatical errors and misprints in the Tables and Indexes have been corrected, and about FORTY PAGES, embracing duplicate Tables, Indexes, unnecessary Prefaces, &c. have been omitted in the former and present editions. This, in the thousands of copies which will probably be circulated, is an important item of economy, while it will render the work more simple, and therefore more useful.

4. The Table of Psalms has been placed before the Table of Hymns as the most appropriate position, and the Index of Scriptures and Index of Subjects are put in juxtaposition with the Table of First Lines, Table of Scriptures, and Table of Psalms and Hymns, at the commencement of the volume.

5. Nine Hymns, which, in former editions, have been repeated in different parts of the book, are here omitted, and other evangelical hymns, from approved authors, have been substituted.

6. The two pages, containing the Syllabus of the Arrangement, and the General Contents to Rippon's Hymns, are omitted, because they furnish no advantage which the Index of Subjects does not afford, and are therefore comparatively useless.

7. The metres of more than one hundred psalms and nymns have been adjusted according to the musical signatures of the most approved authors of psalmody.

8. As this edition has been prepared with special reference to the Baptist denomination, several of Dr. Watts's hymns which are deemed objectionable have been omitted, and other hymns on the same subject, and of decided excellence, have been substituted.
