Excerpt from Review of Dr. Pressly on Psalmody Every part of religious worship is pleasant to the people of God. And to the pious soul it is especially delightful to sing praises to the Most High. It is natural indeed, for the feelings of a grateful heart, to go forth in a song of thanksgiving and praise to the Great Giver of all good: and chiefly to the heart of a christian thus to express his gratitude for the unspeakable blessings of Redemption. And hence the universal sentiment of the Church is, that Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness. But while all are agreed, that we should sing aloud unto God our strength; and make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob, it is cause of regret, that there is not the same unity of sentiment in the Church, as to the songs with which we shall praise the Lord. All are agreed that in our praises, we should give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; but all are not agreed as to the songs to be employed in giving that glory. Some maintain that inasmuch as the glory of God is revealed by the Whole of the word of God."This book comes from the personal library of Morton H. Smith but does not have his personal library marking. It does have a gift inscription to him.
