Onward and Upward with the Arts

An older “Methodist hymnbook” apparently had 1026  hymns —
The Methodist Hymn Book,
Illustrated with Biography, History,
Incident, and Anecdote ,
by George John Stevenson.
Second edition, London, Charles H. Kelly, 1894 —

Hymn 834 — I seek Thy kingdom first
Hymn 625 — Out of the depth of self-despair
Hymn 910 — God of truth, and power, and grace
Hymn 842 — Father, I know that all my life
Hymn 366 — I soon shall hear thy quick’ning voice

The 1933 Methodist Hymn Book  has the above-mentioned 984  hymns.
In that  book, the above numbers refer to . . .

834 — Above the clear blue sky
625 — I to the hills will lift mine eyes
910 — These things shall be: a loftier race
842 — Gentle Jesus, Meek and Mild
366 — Jesus! Redeemer, Saviour, Lord

I prefer the list from the older book.
