Oppressed by the cares, toils and duties of the week, the Sabbath come to his relief, like as a spring of water to the refreshment of a thirsty traveller, in his journey through a dry and desert land. It reminds him of duties higher and holier than those of laboring for the honour and riches of this world.

And while it reminds him that the period of his existence on earth is short, it reminds him also of a never ending existence beyond the grave. It reminds him that he is fearfully and wonderfully and wonderfully made, that he is the creature of an invisible Creator, to whom he is indebted for his life, and for all the wonderful physical, moral and intellectual faculties with which he is endowed. It affords him a fit season to look through nature up to natures God, to contemplate his infinite perfections- and to admire the wisdom and goodness which has given him an habitation so exactly adapted to his capacities and wants.

And what is of yet greater importance, it affords him and opportunity to read and reflect upon the revelation which discloses the character of his Creator, his own character, the duties required of him in this life, and what he must do to inherit a life of immorality and blessedness in that world of spirits into which his soul must soon take its flight.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
