Paperback. Good. "The Psalms have furnished the bridal hymns, the battle songs, the pilgrim marches, the penitential prayers, and the public praises of every nation in Christendom, since Christendom was born. They have rolled through the din of every great European battlefield; they have pealed through the scream of the storm in every ocean highway of the world. Drake's sailors sang them when they clave the virgin waters of the Pacific; Frobisher's, when they dashed against the barriors of Arctic ice & night. They floated over the waters on that day of days when England held her freedom against Pope & Spanierd. They crossed the ocean with the mayflower pilgrim's; were sung round Cromwell's camp fires, and his Ironsides charged to their music. In palace halls, by happy hearths, in squalid rooms, in pauper wards, in prison cells, in crowded sanctuaries, in lonely wilderness ---everwhere they have uttered our moan of contrition & our song of triumph; our tearful complaints, and our wrestling, conquering, prayer."
