J. Y. KNIGHT, LEEDS.
THE Psalms in this collection which are marked thus, (t) are either wholly, or in part, taken from other versions: the rest of the Psalms, with the whole of the Hymns, are original ; except that occasionally some ideas and expressions may occur, which have been derived from former writers.
The singing of " Psalms, Hymns, and “ Spiritual Songs," is so pleasing and edifying a part of civilné worship, that it is much to be wiskied that all persons in our congregations should feel it a duty to join in thus giving praise and glory to God : and may He, who is the Giver of every good gift, direct us how to sing, as well as pray, “with the spirit, and with the un“ derstanding also.”
