Excerpt from A Selection of Psalms and Hymns for Public and Private Use: Adapted to the Festivals of the Church of England; And to Some Portions of the Epistles, Gospels, or Lessons, Appointed for Every Sunday Throughout the Year Singing is represented, in the emblematical vision of the Apocalypse, as constituting in part the employment of Angels and glorified Saints around the throne of heaven. "They sang a new song." "Worthy is the Lamb that was slain." In accordance with the employment of the heavenly hosts, singing has been adopted by the Church of God in all ages of the world. Thus the Israelites celebrated their deliverance from the hands of Pharaoh by singing to the timbrel of Miriam, on the shore of the Red Sea. The Temple of the Jews continually resounded with the strains of "The sweet singer of Israel." Our blessed Lord, as though He would consecrate the practice, by adopting it himself on one of the most solemn occasions of his life, even in the very night in which He was betrayed for the sins of men, and immediately after his distribution of the symbols of his body and his blood, sang a hymn with his disciples. In the New Testament there are repeated admonitions to the performance of this duty; "and from the Apostolic age singing was always a part of divine service."
