Title: Hearts delight. A Sermon Preached at Pauls crosse in London in Easter terme. 1593.
Year: 1603
Author: Thomas Playfere
Printer: John Legatt
Publisher: Simon Waterson
Categories: James I
Notes: Printed in Cambridge by John Legat; sold in London by Waterson. Text of a sermon delivered in 1593. This appears to have been the first time the sermon was printed. It was re-printed in 1611, 1617 and 1633, each time containing the same 5-page dedication addressed 'To the most victorious, vertuous, and puissant Prince, King James the first, King of England, Scotland, France, and Ireland, defendour of the faith, all earthly and heavenly happines'. Here, James's accession is compared to Solomon taking the throne after David. Playfere claims that: 'when all your liege people strive to shew the gladnesse of their hearts...I also among the rest have taken occasion humbly to dedicate unto your Majestie such a poore present as I had in readinesse.' Sermon preached on Psalm 37:4: 'Delight thy selfe in the Lord, and he shall give thee the desires of thy heart.'
