MOST FOPCLAlt HYMNS.
About once in very ao ol i n soiuo
body comes to the front w it thc
wail thu/ tlie mus'c used In t. e Sun
lay acliools ia altogether bad ami
trashy, and that there ia no longer
any desire for the old and better mu
sic,. . Like everything clue, that
crlHclaoi baa Just omni j; h truth in
lt to make UH wonder Jam how true
One of tho religious papers un
dertook to lind out something abo.it
it lately, and this is what was dis
Sunday acliools in sixteen states
were usked to volo on their favorite
hymns, and did so. Thu result
showell that there was not such a
universal longing for the so-called
"popular" hyams as had boori
though'.. Of course, all the schools
did net ugreo on any list. Mut thev
dld ug.ee on a good many hymns,
and this ls the list of those hymus
willoh were shown to be .most popu
lar of all: Onward Christian
Soldiers, Sound thc Hattie Cry. Glory
Song, Savior Like a Shepherd Lead
t's, Love Divine All Love Kxcclling,
Shine in My Soul. Trust aud Obey, All
Hull tho Power, Help Somebody To
day, I Love to Tell the SUiry, lloiy
H"iy, Holy, God Will Take Caro of
\ J, Crown Ulm King of Kings.
Fourteen hymns, and not a rag
time tuno among them. Tho Sundi;
school iy pot going to musical d3
st ruction quito yet. It docs not I'ko
to sing "Hark to the Toniba" and lt
never will. . It. does not like wha:
many call "funeral" nynma. Youn^
folks wunt an.ion and liveliness, and
they want a religion that has plenty
of those qualities in it. Out to get
these things In tho hymna they do
not liavo to sing trash. Christianity
has alway:; boon active and alive, and
there aro plenty of good hymns with
good music for young people" lo ping.
Nobody, need worry about'thc Sun
day school and Cts~ music.
