Olney Hymns Book 3 Index

 

From Newton's Preface:

"The Hymns are distributed into three Books...

The third Book is miscellaneous, comprising a variety of subjects relative to a life of faith in the Son of God, which have no express reference either to a single text of Scripture, or to any determinate season or incident. These are farther subdivided into distinct heads."

[click on the first column no. to view individual hymns with their full words, a link to their ms image, and relevant excerpts from Newton's diary when that particular hymn was written]

[at present only those hymns with manuscript images are being entered here - for the words of other hymns use Google Books, e.g. search from this link, or at CCEL]
