PREFACE.

This work was originally intended and undertaken for the benefit of Sunday Schools, but it may be found especially useful in families; for it is probable that the subject and bearing of many of the Songs of Zion, as well as many expressions in them, are in general but imperfectly understood: and it is needful that we should “ sing with the spirit, and sing with the understanding also.” 1 Cor. xiv. 15. If, therefore, on each Sunday, the Psalms for the day be read with this explanation, before going to church, it may be a means, under God's blessing, of exciting a better attention to them, and of enabling some to derive a greater advantage from this important part of our admirable Liturgy. To those families, moreover, in which the reading of a portion of Scripture is happily combined with domestic worship, this manual may afford a seasonable help and service.
