about

This work had its origin in a desire to present to the church, some of the best thoughts from the pen of Brother Cookman, as a means of diffusing the subject which of all others most absorbed him.

To enhance the force and beauty of "Stayed On God," we have thrown around it a few specimens of his self-sacrificing and spiritual life, and incidents of his triumphant departure. In the ardent prayers of his precious family we invite you to join, together with us, in fervent faith that it may be richly and signally owned of the great Head of the Church, in spreading Scriptural Holiness.

To this sacred work the proceeds, if any, are most devoutly consecrated.

O, may it be made mighty through our omnipotent God, to arrest attention, awaken thought, inspire in the reader the "blessed" "hunger and thirst after righteousness," and lead the "filled " to press on and on, into entire absorption by and into Him, until they can say with holy Paul: "It is no more I that live, but Christ that liveth in me."

Then shall we, as did the "seraphic Cookman," teach transgressors His ways, and sinners, by the thousand, shall be converted.

The inexpressibly thrilling and hallowed scenes of his precious life labors and triumphant exit, whispering in his very last conscious moment, in ecstasy, "Jesus is coming nearer [ Jesus is coming nearer!" will soon be given to the public in a memoir now in course of preparation: else we could not refrain from repeating very much of most intense interest, but which, therefore, we cannot in honor and conscience do.

The work will doubtless be full of solid instruction in holiness, and most powerful through God in its promotion.

The churches should praise God that he has left many manuscripts upon this sacred theme, which have never been in print, and which will possess that extreme accuracy, power, and consistency of truth in exposition, for which all who have heard him, know he was so very remarkable.

It was his ardently cherished wish to write a book, but excessive labors in the first city charges prevented. And now alas!

"His leaf is perished in the green!
And while we live beneath the sun,
The world which credits what is done,
Is cold to all that might have been."

We praise God, that Zion may look for his biography, very soon, compiled by one of our ablest city clergymen, and better far, by one who "in spirit, in charity, in faith, in purity," most nearly resembles Cookman.
