In addition to psalms and hymns, the collection includes an opening section of twenty-eight "sentences sung by the orphans when the minister enters the chapel," consisting of brief excerpts from psalms. The appendix to the work includes five hymns by the orphanage's residents: two "by a young lady," two "by a guardian," and one without attribution.
