PREFACE. 



1 HIS Antheai was compofed feventeen years ago. Part of it was Tung In the Eaft parifli of Bradford, (Maff) 
at the annual public Thankfgiving in 1791. At the end of that year, or early in the following year, the whole ftood, nearly, 
as it now ftands. 

The author hopes for candoUr. 

The -ujords have been fele£ted from the Holy Scriptures. In the margin references have been made to the particular places, 
from which the words have been taken. So much, whether one or more fentences, or a part of a fentence, as has been taken 
at a lime from any place, agrees with our Tranflation, word for word. 

The promifes, *« Tkc mountains pall depart^' i2fc. and, " Te Jhall go out iv'tth joy" tfc. are promifes made to Zion, and to the 
people of God, in which it becomes all thofe, of whatever nation, who " love our Lord Jefus Chrift in fincerity," humbly and 
thankfully to rejoice Happy it would be for the inhabitants of this land to be fuitably imprelTed with the facred maxin]> 
" Righteoufnefs exalteth a nation ; but fin is a reproach to any people." 

This Anthem being lengthy, it is proper to remark, that a number of ftrains and parts of {trains may be omitted in various 
ways, the connexion remaining good, both as to the fenfe, and as to the found. The words. Make a loud noifey and rejoice with 
thank/diving, clofe what may be called the former part of the anthem ; and what follows may be called the latter part. The 
former part may be fung without the latter, or with fome ftrains and parts of ftrains felecled from the latter in different ways ; 
and the latter, or fome ftrains and parts of ftrains felefted from the latter in different ways, may be fung without the former, 
or with feledlions from the former.
