There are significant differences in the numerous reprints of Isaac Watts' |Hymns and Spiritual Songs.| The first generation of this Project Gutenberg file was from an 1818 printing by C. Corrall of 38 Charing Cross, London.
The |Index| and the |Table of the Scriptures that are Turned into Verse| are retained, and can be found at the end of the text. The |Table to find any Hymn by the first Line,| however, has been omitted for the following reasons:
1. It refers to page numbers that are here expunged; and 2. In this electronic version first lines can be easily located via searches.
There are 3 books of hymns, and numbers have been added to indicate in which of these the hymns are placed. For example, |2:38| refers to |Book 2, Hymn Number 38,| and so on.
Throughout, modern numerals have been substituted for their Roman equivalents.
