Description

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

Tennent begins this sermon, "On the willing people" with reference to Psalms 110:3, "Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth."

From dates noted in the manuscript, it looks like Tennent wrote this sermon in 1750, then delivered it again in 1755, 1758, and 1763.
