Of this mass hardly more than a fifth ... is before the world chiefly in the Methodist hymnbooks ... As a hymnist [he] is widely famous ... but as a poet, he is scarce heard of ... To remedy this injustice, is in some degree attempted in this book. The following objects have been kept in view. Absolute literary integrity, ... [the] most poetic merit, ... preference to such poems as are little known, ... [to show] a larger scope and discuss a range of differing subjects, ... to attain a good degree of historical and biographical interest, ... to restrain as far as possible those extravagences of expression and that wildness of emotion, in which it was his nature and his habit not seldom to indulge" (signed by Frederic Bird.
