" None, or next to none of our people sing."The more things change, the more they stay the same.
I answer, Then it is high time to begin, or they will die without once having the chance to experience the spiritual joy and elevation of spirit that comes by singing the praises of God.
" But they cannot read a note of music."
That may be true now, but very many can be easily taught to read well enough to be aided by the notes, and they will guide others who can read the words. There are fewer people than is generally supposed who cannot sing. Let everybody have a book, let them be heartily encouraged to try, and it will be found that very few will fail entirely. Not one will fail to bring out a few notes in some popular, telling chorus.
Listening to the sublime, soul-lifting volume of sound going up to heaven from the great congregation, the most timid will be moved by a holy envy to join their voices with the rest.
And they will do better every time.
