CREATION AND REDEMPTION, LAW AND GOSPEL, JUS-
AND SENSE, HEAVEN AND EARTH.
BY THE LATE
REV. MR. RALPH ERSKINE,
MINISTER OF THE GOSPEL AT DUNEERMLINE,
Mira canam, sed vera canai.
BUCH, PSALM LXXVII.
PENNIMAN & BLISS, LANSINGBURGH.
0. PENNIMAN AND CO. PRINTERS
If the number of Editions of any performance, be à mark of public approbation, Mr. Erskine's GOSPEL SONNETS have a claim to that distinction, and they may be ranked amongst those of general esteem and usefulness ; few books have been so often printed in the fame space of time.
The present Edition, it is hoped, will be found not less worthy of public encouragement, than those that have gone before it, as considerable attention has been paid to the correcting, by comparing it with former editions; and every thing is to be found here that has appeared in the most approved copies of the Gospel Sonnets.
Mr. Erskine's Poems, as Dr. Bradbury says, are greatly to be esteemed; and above all, for
that which animates the whole, the favour of 3 divine and experimental knowledge.
