The New Week's Preparation; Part the Se-
cond: Confitting of Meditations, Prayers, and Hymns, fuitable for
every Day in the Week, after receiving the Lord's Supper. In which
thofe Doubts and Scruples which are apt to disturb and render the
Minds of devout Communicants uneafy, are clearly stated, and finally
erved.

The Two Parts may be had bound together.

The Author to the Reader. REASONS for publishing this BOOK. TH HO' I may poffibly incur the displeasure of those whofe fecular views may be fruftrated or disappointed by the publication of this NEW Week's Preparation; yet I have the confolation of being fully affured, that this prefent undertaking will want no apology to those who have religion truely at heart. Nor am I under any apprehenfion of being condemned for adding one more to the the number of devotional books, already extant upon the fubject of the holy facrament of the Lord's Supper; because the tempers and talents of men are fo different, that what does not affect one may poffibly touch another. I am also perfuaded that the prefent Proprietors of KEBLE's Old Week's Preparation, cannot defire the continuance of a book which has already been found fo injurious to chriftianity; for it abounds with rapturous and wanton expreffions, and warmth of conftitution, not reafon, much less religion, has the chief and fovereign influence. Undoubtedly writers of this caft, have fhamefully fuffered the fofter Paffions to mix too ftrongly with their Zeal for religion t.

The following is the APOLOGY of no less an Author than Dr. Ifaac Watts himself:

"Let it be observed, that it was much the Fashion, even among fome Di"vines of Eminence in former Years, to exprefs the Fervors of devout Love "to our Saviour in the Syle of the Song of Solomon; And I must confefs, that "feveral of my Compofures in Verfe, written in younger Life, were led by "thofe Examples unwarily into this Track. But, if I may be permitted to "fpeak the Senfe of maturer Age, I can hardly think this the happiest Lan"1 guage in which Chriftians should discover their warm Sentimems of Re"ligion, fince the clearer and more fpiritual Revelations of the New Tefta"ment." To this Apology we may add, that in thefe our Meditations and Prayers are no vifionary Senes of wild Extravagance; no Affectations of that Style, which fpreads a glaring Confufion o er the Understanding. Here are none of thofe incomprehenfible Phrafes which may amufe the Ear with founding Vanity, and hold Reafon in fovereign Contempt. In fhort, here ar no fecret Pantings after a mortal Love, in the Language of Devotion and Pet
