"I Can't Sing."
How many young and old make
this answer when urged to accept a
song book and join in the singing!
I know a gentleman who says he
could not recognize "Jesus Lover of
my soul" or 'Nearer my God to
thee" if he were to hear the tunes
without the words, ? so wholly un
able is he to distinguish one tune
from another. But you would never
know this from his attitude during
the church song service. He pro
cures a song book, turns to the
number and from all outward ap
pearance is singing. What he really
is doing is just reading the words
over and trying to get Ihe tune, al
though he says as far as he knows,
he has never succeeded in getting it.
You Avho "can't sing:" adopt this
method; it might turn out that you
will be more successful in catching
the tune than the gentleman above.
You may not be able to sing well
or even moderately well, but, at
least, you can say the words over.
Perhaps you are not.a Mrs. Rohrer,
but it would never do to give a hun
gry husband the excuse "I can't
cook" (if the cook leaves between
meals) when he returns from his
day's work. It would be safer to
have the stove hot and you be going
through the motion of cooking.
