THIS selection is made in the hope of exciting more general feeling for the spiritual wants of above 800 million of the human race.
For the 200 million who profess Christianity there are yet provided but 6 million Bibles : whilst to the remainder, all the societies together send but 512 missionaries. And to the 12 million of that people to whose Fathers we owe all our Christian knowledge, consolation and hopes, there are but 7 missionaries and 6000 Hebrew new Testaments sent.

Attend the Almighty Father's name;
PART THE FIRST.

And brings the truth to sight;
A sanctifying light.
Majestic like the sun;
It gives,—but borrows none.
The gracious light and beat:
They rise, but never set.
For such a bright display,
With beams of heav'nly day. 5 My soul rejoices to pursue
The steps ot him I love;

Does the word of God afford !
