Men of all nations find in these compositions alanguage at once suitable to their feelings, and expressive oftheir highest joys and deepest sorrows, as well as of all theendlessly varied wishes and desires of their hearts. Whetherthe pious believer is disposed to indulge the exalted sentimentsof praise and thanksgiving towards the ALMIGHTY FATHER of hisbeing; to pour out his soul in penitence or prayer; to bewail,with tears of contrition, past offences; to magnify the goodnessand mercy of GOD; to dwell with ecstacy on the divine attributesof wisdom and omnipotence; or to rejoice in the coming of theMESSIAH, the Psalms afford him the most perfect models forexpressing all his feelings.
