A "new" collection of hymns has been published by Solid Ground Books. It was compiled by the church historian Philip Schaff and is called Christ in Song. It looks interesting and I may just have to pick up a copy. Here's what Charles Hodge had to say about Christ in Song:

"After all, apart from the Bible, the best antidote to all these false theories of the person and work of Christ, is such a book as Dr. Schaff's 'CHRIST IN SONG.' The hymns contained in that volume are of all ages and from all churches. They set forth Christ as truly God, as truly man, as one person, as the expiation for our sins, as our intercessor, saviour, and king, as the supreme object of love, as the ultimate ground of confidence, as the all-sufficient portion of the soul. We want no better theology and no better religion than are set forth in these hymns. They were indicted by the Holy Spirit in the sense that the thoughts and feelings which they express, are due to his operations on the hearts of his people."

Kind of a Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi argument.
