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.
