Praise our Triune Jehovah

He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded 

his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name.  
                                               Psalms 111:9

Praise our Triune Jehovah for his redemption.  Write it down
where you may read it.  Affix it where you may see it.  Engrave
it on your heart that you may understand it.  It is a word big
with importance.  In it is enfolded your destinies and those
of the Church, to all future ages.  There are heights in it you never
can have scaled, and depths you never can have fathomed.  You
have never taken the wings of the morning, and gained the utmost
parts of earth, to measure the length and breadth of it.  Wear it as
a seal on your arm, as a signet on your right hand, for Jesus is the
author of it.  O! prize it as a precious stone, more precious than
rubies. . . . Let it express your best hopes while living, and dwell
on your trembling lips in the moment of dissolution; for it shall
form the chorus of the song of the redeemed throughout eternity.
