INTRODUCTION.

THE

'HE Psalms are a favourite portion of God's

word. They are not intended so much to give us instruction and information, as to stir up devout and prayerful feelings in our hearts.

Most of the Psalms were composed by King David, who lived about a thousand years before the coming of our Lord. But some are supposed to have been written by Moses, Ezra, and others.

Many passages in the Psalms clearly refer to our blessed Lord-to His person, and His kingdom.

He glitters here and there as a grain of precious metal in the sand. May the Holy Spirit discover Him to us, shedding light upon every verse, so that we may understand its full meaning ! May He tune our hearts and enable us to enjoy the sweetness which is breathed forth in these holy songs !
