Seite iv - ... it came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the Lord ; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and praised the Lord, saying, For He is good; for His mercy endureth for ever...
Seite iii - Sing unto the Lord ; for he hath done excellent things: This is known in all the earth. Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion : For great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee.
Seite ix - The whole Booke of Psalmes, collected into English Metre, by T. Sternhold, J. Hopkins, and others, conferred with the Ebrue, with apt notes to sing them withal," was appended to the Book of Common Prayer printed in that year.
Seite viii - But it raises a forbidding wand against a wanton roaming beyond these bounds ; and presents no inducement for human vanity to seek after idle display. It allows every thing for the glory of God- — nothing for the ambition of man. At the same time, it claims attention from the most fastidious, by the richness and weight of its materials. Instead of the few meagre chords upon which the lighter tunes raise their fanciful superstructure, it grasps, in its ample comprehension, the most magnificent combinations,...
Seite iv - ... still dispossessed by the harp of the son of Jesse. This little volume, like the paradise of Eden, affords us in perfection, though in miniature, every thing that groweth elsewhere, every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food : and above all, what was there lost, but is here restored— Me tree of life in the midst of the garden.
Seite iv - ... the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the LORD ; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and praised the LORD, saying, For he is good : for his mercy endureth for ever : that then the house was 14 filled with a cloud...
Seite iii - Here is a new song put iuto our mouths ; a song of Praise to the LORD, for the avenging of Israel when the People willingly offered themselves. We Bless God for what he has done, and acknowledge he has laid us under singular Obligations of Gratitude and Thankfulness to those he has been pleased to honour, by improving them as happy Instruments in this truly great and glorious work. Our hearts should...
Seite iv - Thus he who had not the Spirit by measure, in whom were hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge, and who spake as never man spake, yet chose to conclude his life, to solace himself in his greatest agony, and at last to breathe out his soul, in the Psalmist's form of words rather than his own. No tongue of man or angel, as Dr. Hammond justly observes, can convey a higher idea of any book, and of their felicity who use it aright.
Seite iv - In the language of this Divine book, therefore, the prayers and praises of the Church have been offered up to the throne of grace, from age to age. And it appears to have been the manual of the Son of God, in the days of his flesh ; who, at the conclusion of his last supper, is generally supposed, and that upon good grounds, to have sung...
Seite ix - ... performances on the public in their stead ; which they have done in a way that has tended to degrade the popular taste, and to deprive this delightful part of public worship of its due solemnity, as well as every other attraction it originally possessed. The apparent simplicity of the genuine psalm tune seems to have seduced these persons into the serious mistake of supposing themselves capable of composing in that style, and the still more grievous error of imagining that they could improve...
