TILE WORKS OF THE LORD ARE GREAT, SOUGHT OUT OF ALL THEM THAT HAVE PLEASURE THEREIN.

HIS WORK IS HONOURABLE AND GLORIOUS: AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS ENDURETA FOR EVER.

FULL OF COMPASSION.-PSALM CXI. 2-4.

WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE TAUE, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE HONEST, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE
JUST, WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE PURE, WHATSOEVER TIIINGS ARE LOVELY, WHATSOEVER THINGS
ARE OP GOOD REPORT; IF THERE BE ANY VIRTUE, AND IF THERE BE ANY PRAISE, THINK
ON THESE THINGS.-PHILIPPIANS IV. 8.
