Their books of common prayer contained hymns from Scripture, and thanksgivings, benedictions, and supplications, written by rulers of the synagogue. Their custom of finishing the Passover with certain psalms (Ps. cxiii.-cxviii.), called the “Great Hallelujah," is alluded to in Matt. xxvi. 30, lluvcavtes; and the Christian Church has always used, besides the Psalms, the Song of the Virgin Mary (Luke i. 46-55), the Song of Zachariah (Luke i. 68-79), and the Song of Simeon (Luke ii. 29-32). The Church has always had a prescribed form of common prayer; and if all ancient liturgies in the world be compared, it will be seen that they all had an
