I'R idea is to put in small space, with comfortal.ba

type, the old and new hymns which are so “catching“ that a congregation cannot help but sing. Not more than one out of four church-goers sings, and he who does sing is apt to do it with his mouth half shut, as though to keep his soul from escaping with the utterance.

We do not print the music with the words, because the vast majority of people in church never look at the music even when it is printed. Besides that, nearly all the tunes we sing are familiar, and we need no guide. board on a road we have all our lives been travelling. If there be any one who does not know "Toplady" and “Antioch," we defy all the music books of the werli to teach hiin. When we want to einploy “new tunes we will learn them in the congregational singing-school, an indispensable institution. The notes"

are indis. bensable for schools where the art is to be learned; but If in church one cannot follow a tune except by poising binself on minims or semi-quavers, there will not be much devotion in what he sings. It makes us nervous to have a man sitting next to us in church who sings by gote when he does not know how. Instead of mounting heavenward on the five-runged ladder of the musical staff, he is all the time afraid of falling off. We do not come to church to study music, but to worship God.
