Having formerly written a little work for Believers in affliction, which the Lord has condescended to make a great blessing to many; I have been urgently requested to write one on the same plan - for those who in health and ease have neglected the one thing needful. May multitudes have reason to bless God that "The voice of Mercy" was ever published, and may the God of mercy, who alone can make it useful - accompany it with his effectual blessing. This book is intended for the afflicted; its design is to produce conviction, penitence, faith, and joy in God. The pieces are . . . short - that they may not weary the weak; plain - that they may be understood by the illiterate; and pointed - that they may make an impression on all. The work may be read by the sufferer when alone, but is also suitable for those who visit the sick to take with them, and read a portion at each visit. The subjects presented are of the greatest importance, they concern every person; therefore while especially adapted to the afflicted - the book is also suitable to those who are healthy and in comfortable circumstances.
