An other Christian WordPress.com site – Een andere Christelijke WordPress.com site

So far as the Christian Church is concerned, the Lord has left her entirely without restrictions in such matters — to praise the Lord with heart and voice, according to her love and zeal and judgment.

It is not, therefore, for one to judge another respecting the use of his love, zeal and judgment in offering the Lord worship in songs of praise, whether with instrumental accompaniment or without: it is for each individual and each church to exercise the liberty which the Lord has granted.

However, we do urge that all remember that it is not the excellence of our music that will make it acceptable to our Lord. For we may well suppose that the harmonies of the heavenly choirs quite outmeasure the best efforts of earthly choirs, and hence could not hope that the Lord will receive our songs of praise because of their intrinsic merit. Their acceptance at all will be because they are expressions of the heart sentiments; and this being true all who have heart sentiments of thankfulness and gratitude should be encouraged to make “a joyful noise unto the Lord,” as acceptable and pleasing to him through the merit of our Redeemer.

“Let all his children sing
Glad songs of praise to God!
The children of the heavenly King
Should tell their joys abroad.”
