May we be permitted to remind our fellow. worshippers of the exhortation addreffed by the zealous Levites to the congregation of Israel? Neh. ix. 5. STAND UP and bless the Lord your God forever and ever. Sitting is the usual pofture of mourning and filence (Lam. ii. 10.) And perhaps it would be difficult to find many congrégations who indulge this unsuitable attitude, who are not either too filent or dull in the delightful work of praise: we speak not of those few individual exceptions, who, on account of age, corporeal inírmities, or great fatigue, cannot accomplish their own wishes. Sitting congregations generally resign that part of divine worfhip which is the nearest akin to heaven, to the clerk or fingers: and we almost despair of feeing any confiderable or general improvement in this branch of our public folemnities, till our People Stand up to praise the Lord their God. :
