Excerpt from Christian Praise: Hymns and Tunes for Public Worship
Christ is all and in all. \in the progress of the race toward perfection in God, this truth is more clearly apprehended than ever before. In this light, old things are passing away. History is rewritten. Theology becomes instinct with life. Devotion becomes more intense. Worship takes on a higher phase. The service of song in the house of the Lord is ennobled. It becomes not only more definitely praise, but also more distinctively Christian Praise.
From the great mass of material in most hymn-books, the instinct of good pious taste rejects what does not express this developed Christian feeling of the church.
It rejects mere dogmatic statements, as belonging to catechism, creed, confession.
It rejects mere didactic, descriptive, and hortatory rhymes, as belonging to the sermon.
