The Song of Solomon by Henry Law and published by Classics.
The aim of this volume is simple, yet sublime--lowly, yet rising above earth. Its desire is to promote and elevate and sanctify the communion of families with heaven; to give wings to piety, and warm utterance to prayer. This exercise requires watchful care--the often recurrence militates against impression. An object always present to the eyes scarcely arrests notice. The lull of one repeated note will wrap the senses in forgetfulness. Hence fruitless formality may creep in, and dull routine may slowly move where liveliness should burn. True worship is the heavenward elevation of the soul. To obtain this benefit is worth all efforts.
May the Holy Spirit, who here reveals the glories of Christ Jesus, ride forth in a chariot of light! May no earth-born mists obscure the grand intent! May devout hearts open their portals to receive pure truth! If any, heretofore, have paused with hesitation at its threshold, may they advance with confidence in the persuasion, that sanctifying grace will meet them here, as in other Scriptures! May they find that this Song is a chaste prelude to the chorus of the white-robed multitude!
