1865. Excerpt: ... THE LORD RULES OVER ALL His kingdom ruleth over
all.--Ps. CIII. 19. This is a psalm of praise, wherein the Lord is
magnified for his mercy especially. This mercy is the more to be
praised and admired, because the object of it is s0 unworthy and
contemptible, man, who is so sinful, ver. 8, 10; so weak, ver. 14;
