Carmina Evangelica : Or Hymns Chiefly Collected from Various Authors (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Carmina Evangelica: Or Hymns Chiefly Collected From Various Authors But besides that, in order fully to satisfy us as to the duty of singing the high praises of God, he has intimated it to be his sovereign pleasure and likewise left upon record, for our instruction and imitation, many persons, who, at his command, and considering it as their great privilege, actually engaged in this delightful employ ment. When he gave his statutes to Jacob and hls judg ments to Israel, it was one part of his enjoined worship to praise the name of God with a song. Accord ingly we find this duty urged, by the writers of the Old Testament, from the consideration of its being a com mand of God, and therefore acceptable as worship to him. The same is inculcated in the New Testament, which corresponds with the Old in shewing that praise is comely; that it is proper to come unto Sion with songs still; and that, both in public and private, we ought to admonish and edify each other by psalms, and hymns, and spiritual songs; singing and making melody with grace in our hearts to the Lord. Eph. V. 19. 001. Iii. 16. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
