Title page of Collection of Sacred Hymns, 1835.

A Collection of Sacred Hymns, for the Church of the Latter Day Saints. was the first hymnal of the Latter Day Saint movement. It was published in 1835 by the Church of the Latter Day Saints.

Emma Smith selected 90 hymn texts for the hymnal. Many of these texts were revised or corrected by W. W. Phelps to fit with the theology of the early Latter Day Saint church.

The title page states 1835 as the publication date, but because of the printing of the Doctrine and Covenants the same year, printing of the hymnal was not completed until February 1836.[1]
