Excerpt from Gospel Songs and Hymns No. 1: For the Sunday School, Prayer Meeting, Social Meeting, General Song Service
The best compositions, new and old, from more than one hundred of the most popular composers of music and hymn writers have been secured for this work. All the old tunes have been chosen, because they are favorites the world over, and the new pieces have been carefully selected with the utmost care, so that there is scarcely a piece in the book but that will give the best of satisfaction, and many of them will surely become popular.
Do not therefore select a few pieces and sing these only, but _try every piece, and you will find that many of the shorter ones. Are among the best.
The singing of hymns is intended to promote spirituality in worship, holi ness in life and activity in world-wide evangelization. It is one of the might iest inﬂuences for good and makes possible a deeper experience of truth, a more real fellowship with God and a holy union of devout souls of all ages in their highest ideas of duty.
It is suggested that you do not sing too loud, for noise is not music. Sing ing is praising God. Sing with the spirit and with the understanding also. Real music comes from the heart and not simply from the lips. Do not sing the words but sing their meaning, with all your soul. In many cases it may be well to sing two stanzas before singing the Refrain, as in No. 130. Teach the children to sing.
