Contents: Manuscript A : "A collection of verses." O how I do love good believers ; I have a little love! ; O come each lovely child of grace ; Let music sound and echo 'round ; I'm looking 'round about to see ; I am determined to be free ; Come let us all now be alive ; I will labor to be free ; I love God's way ; I will be free, I'll not be bound ; Lovely souls march along ; "March" : (Lo lo lo lo) ; In this new and living way ; May we now in pure devotion ; Come let us play and skip around ; O freedom, lovely in my eyes ; O Lord, do remember my soul ; "Gifts of the Spirit" ; Farewell unto this world ; "The happiness of being good" ; "Little big I" ; "Love and peace" ; "Happy band" ; "Sweet communion" ; "Round dance" : (There's nothing--
) ; Shout, shout, shout and sing ; Shout, shout, ye little children ; Simple and free ; "Heavenly stream" ; "A laughing song" ; I have a little trumpet ; Drink ye of mother's wine ; Little children ; Like a little busy bee --
Manuscript B : "A communication from the Saviour. "The Saviour's universal prayer" ; And again, O Heavenly Father --
Manuscript C : "Behold I come quickly and my promise is sure." Shake and shuffle out of pride ; (Lodle lo lodle lodle lodle lo) ; "Sweet union" ; "Round dance" : (Now be limber) ; "Little dove" ; "Hear mother calling" ; I'll bow and I'll bend ; Little children, gather love ; "March" : (Ve vo vive vana) ; "Bonny wee one" ; In de shiny muder's mansion ; Who will bow and bend like a willow ; I feel the gentle breezes blow ; Let the people be glad ; Earthly pleasures I will leave ; We are all coming home ; "Bright harpers" ; "Sweet Afton" --
Manuscript D : "I feel a sweet influence upon us." I feel a sweet influence ; Trust in the Lord ; Sowing the seed of the springtime ; We're happy and free ; Up with the angels ; Come, come, the way is op'ning ; O what will the harvest be ; I am loved as I love ; We are strong in the Lord ; With my own hand I will shake ; Hark! The merry bells are ringing ; I seek not the world ; 'Tis the gift to be simple ; The heavens are open ; I've got a very delicious crumb --
Manuscript E: "Peaceful habitation." "Shuffling tune" ; Life, life, liberty ; "Love" ; (Lodle lo lodle lodle lo) ; Arise, O Zion ; I'll drink at no fountain ; From the valley to the mount ; Come, tune up your notes of praise ; We'll raise, raise the banner high ; From the scenes of earth I go ; Wither, O whither on earth can I roam ; I hear the voice of an angel band ; Our love never ending --
Manuscript F : "Tho life's morn rose bright and cloudless." Tho life's morn rose bright and cloudless ; The stars will not fade ; Whence comes the hope ; Life, life, living zeal ; With joy we chant ; I will praise the Lord ; The world I've forsaken ; Above the enchanting allurements ; I see a light, and angels bright ; In life's early morning ; Tho wordly elements combine ; Gird on the heav'nly armor ; O thou, my soul, arise and sing ; To the realms of peace and love ; Come arise, be of good cheer ; Not one sparrow is forgotten ; I cannot serve the living God ; My soul loves to walk ; When I come to worship thee ; To the land of the blest ; Send, O Lord, thy holy power ; Ever changing, ever aiming ; Come to Zion ; Mov'd by the spirit of the Lord ; No half-way work --
Manuscript G : "Listen O listen to our humble prayer." Oh come, ye needy ones ; Love me, bless me, holy angels ; "I'm glad I am a Shaker" ; I love to commune with the angels --
Manuscript H : "We'll broaden our circle and let in the angels." Behold what wonders now we see ; O earth's fleeting joys ; Oh come walk with me ; Songs of victory ; Oh the river of life --
Manuscript I : "The homeland." "The death of Lincoln" ; "Harp song" ; "Farewell song" ; "Love from Heaven" ; "Bright little gem" ; "Sweet rest" --
