BEING

A COLLECTION

OP

PSALMS, HYMNS, AND SPIRITUAL SONGS,

TO THE

PRAISE AND GLORY

OF

JEHOVAH,

FATHER, SON, AND HOLY GHOST

IN COVENANT.

“Ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy
nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises
of Him, who hath called you out of darkness into His marvel-
lous light; which in time past were not a people, but are now
the people of God; which had not obtained mercy, but now
have obtained mercy."-1 PETER ii. 9, 10.

CITY PRESS, LONG LANE, LONDON :

W. H. COLLINGRIDGE,

то

“Him who INHABITETH THE PRAISES OF ISRAEL,"

MY COVENANT JEHOVAH,
FATHER, SON, AND HOLY SPIRIT,

WHOSE UNSPEAKABLE LOVE,

IN SOME DEGREE SHED ABROAD IN MY HEART,

HATH KINDLED IN MY SOUL

A SACRED FLAME, WHICH, CONTINUALLY ASCENDING TO ITS SOURCE,

CAUSES ME

TO SING, AND MAKE MELODY IN MY HEART

UNTO HIMSELF,
I DEDICATE THIS LITTLE VOLUME,

CONSCIOUS THAT THE FINITE

CAN NEITHER COMPREHEND NOR EXPRESS

THE INFINITE ;

YET, AS HE HATH SAID, “LET ME HEAR THY VOICE, FOR SWEET IS THY VOICE,”

I HAVE SOUGHT TO FIND OUT

ACCEPTABLE WORDS,

WHEREBY,

IN COMMON WITH THE WHOLE BODY OF

HIS REDEEMED ONES,
WHEN FILLED WITH His SPIRIT, I MAY SPEAK

HIS PRAISE
IN PSALMS, AND HYMNS, AND SPIRITUAL Songs.

Amen.

Nov. 23, 1849.
