Excerpt from Inspiring Songs No. I: For the Sunday School
A song is the expression of some phase of the heart's emotion, and, as the heart aspires to better things, so the song should enlarge all these feelings, in their different lights and shadows; songs of gratitude, gladness, thanksgiving and praise; songs aspiring to higher levels in heart - life, teaching great Scripture truths; songs that are prayers for the heart's longing, etc., etc., should be abundantly supplied and sung in a full knowledge and spirit of the sentiment expressed; the words may be read and properly emphasized before singing.
A song may be known and liked in one school, and yet be unappreciated in another -select only such as are in favor with the singers; do not insist upon the use of an unpopular piece simply because it is appropriate to the lesson. Sing often! Sing at least one new song each session; sing the popular songs frequently, that the hymn may become fixed in the memory; a song, well committed and rightly sung, is more to be desired than a lesson carelessly prepared and indifferently taught.
The success of music in the Sunday School depends largely upon the class of songs used, and the manner of their using.
The song should be one of sunshine and praise. W'hen occasion demands seriousness, sing a hymn from memory, to one of the grand old Church tunes, which should, in every Sunday School, be taught the children, that they may at all sessions of worship Sing with the spirit and with the understanding.
