Description

Gilbert Tennent (1703-1764) was an Irish-American Presbyterian clergyman, and one of the leaders of the Great Awakening.

This sermon, on the subject of giving one's heart to God, appears to have gone through several edits, and has some pages inserted into the middle of the manuscript. The first page of the insert cites Proverbs 23:26, "My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways."

From dates noted in the manuscript, it looks like Tennent wrote this sermon in 1744, then delivered it again in 1749 and 1752.
