But about tho song of birds thero is as
much silenco as though a thousand years
ago tho last lark had with his wing
swept tho door latch of heaven and as
though never a whippoormll haa sung
its lullaby to a slumbering forest at
nightfall. We give a passing smile to
tho call of a bobolink or the chirp of a
canary, but about tho origin, about the
fiber, about tho meaning, about tho
mirth, about tho pathos, about tho in
spiration, about tho religion in tho song
of birds tho most of- us aro either igno
rant or indifforent. A caveat I this morn
ing file in .the high court of heaven
against that almost univorsal irreligion.
First, I remark that which will sur
priso many, that' the song .of birds is n
regulated and systematic song, capable
of being written out in note and staff
and bar and clef as much as anything
that Wagner or Schumann or Handel
ever put on paper. As wo pass tho
grove where tho flocks aro holding matin
or veBper servico wo are apt to think
that tho sounds aro extemporized, the
rising or falling tone is a mere accident,
it is flung up and down by haphazard,
tho bird did not know what it was
doing, it did not care whether it was a
long meter psalm or a madrigal. What
a mistake 1
The musician never put on the musio
rack before him Mendelssohn's "Elijah"
or Beethoven's "Concerto" in Q or
Spohr's B fiat symphony with moro def
inite idea as to what he was doing than
every bird that can sing at all confines
himself to accurate and predetermined
rondering. Tho oratorios, the chants,
the carols, tho overtures, the interludes,
tho ballads, the canticles that this morn
ing were heard or will this evening be
heard in tho forest have rolled down
through the ages without a variation.
Even the chipmunk's song was ordained
clear .back in, the eternities. At the gates
of paradise it sang 'in sounds like the
syllables "Kuki" "Kuk!" "KukI" just
as this morning in a Long Island or
chard it sang ",Kuk!" "Kuk!" "Kuki"
The thrush at tho creation uttered
sounds like tho word "Teacher 1" "Teach
erl" "Teacherl" as now it utters sounds
liko "Teacherl" "Teacherl" "Teacherl"
In the summer of tho year 1 the yel
lawhamnier trilled that which sounded
like "If 1"' Ifl" "If t" as in this summpr
tttrills "If I" "If I" "Ifl" The Maryland
yellowthroat inherits and bequeaths the
tune sounding liko the words "Pity me,
pity mo, pity met" Tho whit sparrow's
"Tseep, tseep" woke our great grandfa
thers as it will awaken our great grand
children. Tho "Teo-Jca-te-ka:tee-ka" of
the birds in the lirst century was tho
same as tho "Tce-ka-tee-ka-tee-ka" of tho
nature's unchanging bono.
Tho goldfinch has for O.OPQ years been
singing "De-ree-deo-ee-ree." But these
sounds, which we put in harsh words,
they put in cadences, rhythmic, soulful
,and enrapturing. Now if thero is this
order and systematization and rhythm
all through God's creatiou does it not
imply that wo should havo the same
characteristics in the music wo mako or
try to make? Is it not a wickedness that
bo many parents givo no opportunity for
the culture of their children in tho art
of sweet sound? If God stoops to edu
cate every bluebird, oriolo and grosbeak
in song, how can parents be bo indiffer
ent about the musical development of
tho immortals in their household?
While God will accept our attempts to
sing, though it bo only a hum or a drone,
if we can do no better, what a shamo thai
in this lost decade of the nineteenth cen
tury, when so many orchestral batons
aro waving and so many academies of
rausio are in full concert, and so many
skilled men and women are waiting to
offer instruction there are so many peo
ple who cannot sing with any confidence
in the house of God because they have
had no culture in this sacred art, or
whilo they are able to sing a fantasia at
a piano amid the fluttering fans of social
admirers, nevertheless feel utterly help
less when in church the surges of an
"Ariel" or an "Antioch" roll over them.
The old fashioned country singing school,
now much derided and caricatured (and
indeed sometimes it was diverted torn
the real design into tho culture of the
soft emotions rather than tho voice),
nevertheless did admirable work, and in
our churches we need singing schools to
prepare our Sabbath audiences for
prompt and spontaneous and raultipo
tont psalmody. This world needs tope
stormed with halleluiahs.
We want a hemispheric campaign of
hosannas. Jfrom bearing a blind beggar
sing Martin Luther went hqrneat 40
years of age to write bin first hymn. In
the autumn I hope to have a congrega
tional tdnging school here during the
week which shall prepare the people for

nnd sprinkle tho earth with its dulcet eiw
chantments. God fashioned, God tuned,
God launched, God lifted musio 1 And
thero Is n kind of mnsio that tho Lord
only can Impart to you, my hearer.
Thero hnvo been dopraved, reprobate
and blasphemous souls which could sing
till great auditoriums wero in raptures.
There havo been soloists and bassos and
baritones and sopranos whose brilliancy
in concert halls' has not bcon moro fa
mous than their debaucheries. But
there is a kind of song which, liko the
song of birds, is divinely fashioned.
Songs of pardon. Songs of divine com
fort. SongR of worship. "Songs in tho
night," liko those which David and Job
mentioned. Songs full of faith nnd ten
derness and prayer, liko those which tho
Christian mother sings over the sick cra
dle. Songs of a broken heart being
healed. Songs of tho dying flashed upon
by opening portals of amethyst.
Songs liko that which Paul com
mended to tho Colossians when he said,
"Admonish one another in psalms and
hymns and spiritual songs, singing, with
grace in your hearts, to the Lord." Songs
liko M03CS sang after the tragedy of tho
Red sea, songs like Doborah and Barak
sang nt tho overthrow of Sisera, songs
like Ibaiah heard tho redeemed sing as
he came to Zion. Oh, God, teach us
that kind of song which thou only canst
teach and help us to sing it on earth
and sing it in heaven. It was the high
est result of sweet sound when under
the playing of P.iganini one auditor ex
claimed reverently, "Oh, God!" and an
other sobbed out, "Oh, Christ!"
Further, I remark in regard to the
song of birds that it is trustful and
without any fear of what may yot come.
Will you tell mo how it is possible for
that wren, that sparrow, that chickadee,
to sing so sweetly when they may any
time bo pounced on by a hawk and torn
wjng from wing? There are cruel beaks
in thicket and in sky ready to slay the
songbirds. Herods on tho wing. Mo
docs of the sky. Assassins armed with
iron claw. Murderers of song floating
up and down the heavens. How can the
birds Bing amid such perils? Besides that,
how is the bird sure to get its f pod? Mil
lions of birds have been starved. Yet it
sings in tho dawn without any certainty
of breakfast or dinner or supper. Would
it not bo better to gather its food for the
day before vocalizing?
Besides that, the hunters aro abroad.
Bang! goes a gun in one direction. Bang!
goes a gun in another direction. The
song will attract the shot and add to the
peril. Besides that, yonder is a thun
dercloud, and thero may be hurricane
and hail to be let loose, and what then
will become of you, the poor warbler?
Besides that, winter will come, and it
may be smitten down before it gets to
the tropics. Have you never seen the
snow strewn with tho birds belated in
thejr migration? The titmquso mirjglgg
is voice with the snowstorms as Emer
son describes the little thing ho, found in
Here was tills atom In fall breath,
Hurling defiance at vast death;
This scrap of valor, just for play.
Fronts the north wind In waistcoat gray.
v ,B0NQ3 OP TOPE AND TRUST.
For every bird a thousand perils nnd
disasters hovering and sweeping round
and round. Yet there it sings, and it is
a trustful song. Tho bird that has it tho I
hardest sings tho sweetest. Tho lark I
from tho shape
of her claws may not
perch on a tree.
In tho grass her nest is j
exposed to every hoof that passes. Ono
of the poorest shelters of all the earth is
tho lark's nest. If she Binge nt all, you
will expect her to render tho saddest of
threnodies. No, no. She sings exultingly
an hour without a pauso nud mounting
3,000 feet without losing a note.
God wo all might learn tho
Whatever perils, whatever bereavements,
whatever trials aro yet to come, cing,
Bing with all your heart and Bing with
all your lungs.
If you wait until all tho hawks of
trouble havo folded their wings and nil
the hunters of hate have unloaded their
guns and all tho hurricanes of disaster
-have spent their fury, you will never sing
at all. David, the pursued of Absalom
and the betrayed of Ahithophel and tho
depleted of "sores that ran in tho night,"
presents us the best songs of the Bible.
John Milton, not able to see his hand be
fore his face, sings for us tho most fa
mous poem of all literature, and somo of
tho most cheerfpl people I have ever met
have been Christian people under phys
ical pr domestic or public torment. The
sopgs. of Charles Wesley, which we now
calmly sing in church, were composed
by him between mobs.
Further, in tho sky galleries there aro
songs adapted to all moods. The mead
ow lark is mournful, and the goldfinch
Joyous, and tho grosbeak prolonged of

luminous. Are you sod? You can hear

You may catch a restful air. So tho

circumstances. Ana we would do well
to. have a bymnplogy for all changes of

never sing anything else.
So tho most deeply imprcssivo songs
wo over sing nro family songs. Thoy
havo cotno down from generation to
generation. You wero sung to sleep in
your infancy nnd childhood by songs
that will sing in your soul forover.
Whore was it, my brother or sister,
that you heard tho family song on tho
banks of tho Ohio, or tho Alabama, or
tho Androscoggin, or tho Connecticut,
or tho Tweed, or tho Thames, or tho
Itarltan? That song at eventide, when
you wero tired out indeed too tired to
sleep, and you cried with leg acho, and
you wero rocked nnd sung o Bleep you
bear it now, tho soft voice from sweet
lips, sho as tired, perhaps more tired
than you, but sho rockod, and you slum
bered. Oh, thoso family songs!
Tho songs that father sang, that moth
er sang, that sisters and brothers Bang.
Thoy roll on us today with a reminis
cence that fills tho throat as well as the
heart with emotion. In our house in my
childhood it was always a religious song.
I do not think that the old folks knew
anything but religious songs. At any
fate I never heard them sing anything
lse. It was "Jesus, Lover of My Soul,'"
or "Rock of Ages," or "There Is a Foun
tain Filled With Blood," or "Mary to tho
paviour's Tomb." Mothers, bo careful
what you sing your children to sleep
with. Lot it he nothing frivolous or
Bettor havo in it something of Christ
and heaven. Better havo in it something
that will help that boy 80 years from
now to bear up under the bombardment
of temptation. Better have in it some
thing that will help that daughter 80
years from now when upon her come the
cares of motherhood and the agonies pf
bereavement and the brutal treatment
of one who sworo before high heaven
that he would cherish and protect. Do
,not waste tho best hour for making an
impression upon your little one, the hour
of dusk, the beach between tho day and
tho night. Sing not a doleful song, hut

THE LOST RESTORED BY SONQ.
Many years ago a group of white chil
dren wero captured and carried off by
tho Indians. Years after, a mother who
had lost two children in that capturo,
went among tho Indians, and there were
many white children in line, but so long
a time had passed tho mother could not
tell Which were hers until she began 'to
sing tho old nursery song, and her two
children immediately rnshed up, shout-
ing, "Mamma!" "Mamma!" Yes, tfaero
is an immortality in h nursery sdng.
Hoar it, all you mothers, an immortality
of power to rescuo and save.
What an occasion that must have been
in Washington, Dec. 17, 18.J0, when
I Jenny Lind sang "Home, Sweot Home,"
the author of thoso words, John Howard
fayne, seaieu ueioio nor. suo nau ren
dered her other favorite songs, "Casta
Diva" nnd her "Flute Song," with fine
effect, but when she struck "Honio,
Sweet Home," Jolin Howard Payne rose
under the power, and President Fillmore
and Henry Clay and Daniel Websternnd
the wholo uudienco rose with him. Any
tliing connected with homo ransacks our
entire nature with a holy power, and
songs that get well started in tho nur
sery or by the family hearth roll on after
the lips that sung them aro forever silent
and the ears tlmt first heard them for
over cease to hoar.
I preach this sermon just before many
of you will go out to pass days or weeks
in Jhe country. Be careful how you
treat the birds. Remember they are
God's favorites, and if you offend them
you offend him. He Is so fond of their,
voices that there are forests where for a
hundred miles no human foot has? ever
trod and no human ear has ever listened.
Those interminable forests are concert
halls with only one auditor the Lord
God Almighty. Ho builded those audi
toriums of leaves and sky and supports
all that infinite minstrelsy for himself
alone- Be careful hqw you treat his fa-
In Deuteronomy bo warns tho people,
"If a bird's nest chance to be before thee
in the way in any tree or on the ground,
whether they be young ones or eggs, thou
shalt not take the dam with the young,
that it may bo well with thee and that
thou mayest prolong thy days," So you
see your own longevity is related to your
treatment of birds. Then go forth and

TUB SEASON TO BTODT NATURE.
Whilo this summer moro than usual
out of doors let us have what my text
suggests, on out of doors religion. Whnt
business had David, with all the advan
tages of costly religious service and
smoking inconso on tho altar, to bo lis
tening to the chantresscs among the tree
branches? Ah! ho wanted to mako him
solf and all who should como after him
moro alert and moro worshipful amid
tho sweet Bounds and beautiful Bights of
tho natural world. Tiiero is an old
church that needs to be rededicated. It
is older than St. Paul's or St. Peter's or
St. Mark's or St. Sophia's or St. Isaac's.
It is the cathedral of nature. That is
tho church in whioh tho services of the
millennium vrill beheld. Tho buildings
fashioned out of stoho and brick and
mortar will not hold tho people.
Again the mount of Olives will bo tho
pulpit. Again tho Jordan will be tho
baptistry. Again the mountains will bo
tho galleries. Again tho skies will be
thobluo ceiling. Again tho sunrise will
ho tho front door and tho sunset tho
back door of that templo. Again the
clouds will bo tho upholstery and the
morning mist tho incense. Again tho
trees will bo tho organ loft where "the
fowls of heaven havo their habitation,
which sing among ,tho branches.' St.
Francis d'Assisi preached a sermon to
birds and pronounced a benediction upon
them, but all birds preach to us, and
(their benediction is almost supernal.
Whilo this summer amid the works of
God lot us learn responsiveness. Surely
'if we cannot sing wo can hum a tune,
and if wo cannot hum a tune we can
whistle. If we cannot bo an oriole, we
can bo a quail. In some way let us dem
onstrate our gratitude to God. Let us
not bo beaten by the chimney swallow,
and tho humming bird, and tho brown
thrasher. Let us try to set everything
in our life to music, and if wo cannot
givo tho carol of the song sparrow take'
the plaint of tho hermit thrush. Let
our life bo an nnthem of worship to the
I God who crentcd us, nnd tho Christ who
ransomed us, and tho Holy Ghost who
sanctifies us. And our last song! May
it bo our be3t songl Tho swan was
I thought by the ancionta nover to sing
.excent when dying.
1 In the time of Edward IV no ono was'
allowed to own a swan except ho were
a king's son or had considerable estate.
' Through 100 or 200 years of lif o that bird
,was said nover to utter anything like
music until its Inst moment came, and
then lifting its crested beauty it would
pour forth a song of almost matchless
thrill, resounding through tho groves.
And bo, although tho struggles of lifo
maybe too much for us and wo may
find It hard to Bing at all, whon tho last
hour pomes to you and me, may there bo
a radiance from above and a glory Bot
tling round that shall enable us to utter
a song on tho wings of which wo Bhall
mount to whero the musio nover ceases
and the raptures never dlo.
"What Js that, mother?" "The swan, my love.;
He Is floating down from his native erove.
Ho lovod one, no nestling nigh
He Is floating down by hlmsolf to die.
I)oalh darkens lili eye and unplumes his wings,
Yet tho sweetest song Is tho last ho sings.

Swanlilce and sweet, it may waft theo home!"
