The prefatory "Address to Members and Friends of the Methodist Episcopal Church states: "The Hymn Book heretofore in use among us was, in our opinion, unsurpassed. But the General Conference of 1848, judging that the volume could be improved by a careful revision, and by judiciously multiplying the number of hymns appointed a Committee, composed of minister and laymen to prepare a Standard Edition of the Methodist Hymn Book... Although we reluctantly part with some of the familiar hymns of the old book... yet we can confidently approve this Revised Copy; and we do, most cordially, recommend it as a greatly improved and standard edition of the Methodist Hymn Book..." They go on to encourage members to "purchase only such Methodist Hymn Books as are published by our Agents, and have the names of your Bishops." It is signed by Bishops Elijah Hedding, Beverly Waugh, Tho. A. Morris, L.L. Hamline, Edmund S. Janes and is dated New-York, May, 1849.
