Music can be a great power for good, yet we do not make the most of this branch of worship. The singing is generally done from impulse or to meet special cases, and at other times those who sing are left to blunder along, and the music loses its proper effect upon the minds of those present. Music should have beauty, pathos, and power. Let the voices be lifted in songs of praise and devotion. Call to your aid, if practicable, instrumental music, and let the glorious harmony ascend to God, an acceptable offering.”—Testimonies, vol. 4, p. 71. “The singing is not always to be done by a few. As often as possible, let the entire congregation join.”—Testimonies, vol. 9, pp. 143, 144.
