A THOUGHT.

WHA

HAT touches the heart? Music. What elevates the mind, purifies the character, deepens the emotions, strengthens noble purposes and refines the affections? Music. What moves a congregation to devout worship? What brings the Prodigal sons to God? What fills the soul with peace and the Church with a vivifying sense of God's love? Music. But music is as dual as a human being-body, and soul.

We bring you the body, lovely in form and draped with harmonious art; it is for you to give it a soul. These tunes and hymns have been found to be specially fitted for the soul of worship. But whether the best of them shall impel the listener to repentance and salvation, or whether their use shall comfort or inspire the singing Christian, will depend on the spirit which animates the musicians who sing them. These notes are so arranged and these verses so written as to give expression to reverence, prayer, praise, tenderness, pathos, love and religious joy. If those feelings be absent from the singers, the use of these notes becomes a hypocritical pretence, a lifeless sham.

Much more depends upon sincere religious emotion in Religious music than upon mechanical skill. Would you sing for God and sing with the heart more than with the vocal cords? If so, carefully secure a full appreciation of the meaning of the words, enter into the spirit of the music, and then sing your soul into the Beauty of Holiness.
