The Lord's Song is a sermon composed by Eric Gill, reflecting on the 136th Psalm; it is a call to reaffirm free will as well as an acknowledgement of sin and spiritual responsibility. This volume is the first book in which the Golden Cockerel Press has made use of Eric Gill's Perpetua Roman and Felicity Italic types, and Gill contributes a wood engraving to accompany his text, in a combination of spiritual and social criticism.
