The theme for this series of devotional poems and prayers is set by the 23rd Psalm, so universally known and loved. Each major theme of the Psalm provides the name and mood of the six groupings of the meditations. Each is introduced by a scripture text, then one of Miss Merchant's poems, and finally a brief and appropriate prayer which is hers also. The author's thought and fancy roams far and wide and deep, and touches on almost all that life itself touches. Each of these 86 devotional readings should speak to the heart of many women for whom especially they seem to have been written, though their subject matter is better described as human than feminine.
