. This small (12 vo., 320 pp.) hymnbook without music, was the third compiled and published by North American Mennonites, and served the Ontario Mennonites as long as the German language was in use. It is still used by the Old Order group in Ontario, the latest edition being 1975. It was first published at Berlin (Kitchener
, Ontario, Canada) in 1836, with reprints there 1838, 1841, 1849, 1857, 1883, 1892, 1908. The reprints of 1860 and 1870 at Lancaster, PA, suggest it was also used in that area for at least a time. The second edition was slightly enlarged with an appendix (Anhang
), which became a larger Zugabe
with the third edition, both editions having a double index (Register
). From 1857 on the reprints were identical at 388 pages. Probably edited by Bishop Benjamin Eby
(1785-1853), the book took two thirds of its 205 hymns from the Lancaster Conference
hymnal, Unpartheyisches Gesangbuch
(first ed. 1804), and most of the rest from the Franconia Conference
hymnal, Kleine Geistliche Harfe
