Supreme love to God-implying adoration of his character, submission to his will, and obedience to his laws-is the sublime end of the economy of heaven; and devotional exercises are valuable only so far as they contribute to or mani. fest this divine result. Hence, the graces of the christian life are commended, enjoined, and prayed for, prominently, in all the variety of subjects here presented.- Hymns inserted in one division of the Index, will, in many cases, be found equally suited to another.
