For the settlers who landed at Plymouth Rock in 1620, singing psalms in praise of God was a fundamental part of worship. Unsatisfied with existing translations (which they felt put more stake in poetry than piety) the pilgrims elected a panel of 30 clergymen, including well-known ministers Richard Mather, John Eliot, and Thomas Weld, to put together a new translation. In 1640, they produced The Bay Psalm Book-the first book ever published in the American Colonies. The authentic prose remains lyrical and lovely as it carries the Puritans' simple message of God's grace.   show more
