"And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh."--Genesis xxxii. 26.

The glorious Bridegroom is charmed with His spouse, and sings soft canticles of admiration. When the bride extols her Lord there is no wonder, for He deserves it well, and in Him there is room for praise without possibility of flattery.
