CONCLUDING REMARKS ON THE BOOK OF PSALMS.
The Psalms have been the general song of the universal Church;
and in their praise, all the Fathers have been unanimously
eloquent. Men of all nations find in these compositions a
language at once suitable to their feelings, and expressive of
their highest joys and deepest sorrows, as well as of all the
endlessly varied wishes and desires of their hearts. Whether
the pious believer is disposed to indulge the exalted
sentiments of praise and thanksgiving towards the ALMIGHTY
FATHER of his being; to pour out his soul in penitence or
prayer; to bewail, with tears of contrition, past offences; to
magnify the goodness and mercy of GOD; to dwell with ecstacy on
the divine attributes of wisdom and omnipotence; or to rejoice
in the coming of the MESSIAH, the Psalms afford him the most
perfect models for expressing all his feelings.
