Excerpt from Murray's Songs for Sunday Schools and Gospel Meetings: With Special Adaptations of Standard Hymns and Tunes, for Prayer, Conference, and Camp Meetings
A certain poet says: Man was made to mourn. I do not believe it. Man was made to sing; to rejoice. It is quite time, I think, to stop whining and wailing and otherwise expressing discontent with the World and our life in it, and thus with the overruling providence of God. We turn our faces from the sun, and then grumble because it does not shine on them. Look ing forward strains the eyes: looking upward Opens Heaven therefore we ought to look upward. Keep the windows of the heart Open to the sun rising, like those in the guest chamber of the Palace Beautiful, so that in the morning the Pilgrim may sing when he awakes, because of the Shining and the glory. Be ever looking to the Lord, who giveth songs in the night, and with the songs gives us to dwell, even here and now, in that happy country of which is said, It has no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it, for there is no night there.
With an earnest desire to help to this view of life and living, I have writ ten this book. I present it to those who need what it may have in it of help or hope, with the sincere prayer that it may be of use in this way. At any rate, if life be a burden, let it help to make it but the burden of a song, which is a very pleasant thing, you lwow; because in the chorus (burden) we do not sing alone; those around us sing, and that helps. And we should be still more helped had we an Elisha bv our side to ask that our eyes might be opened. They that are with us are more than they that be against. Us.
Let us, then, as we sing, set our faces Godward, which is also Heaven ward and Homeward as well; having in our hearts the sweetest song of all, the music of a holy life, ever singing itself to the Blessed Father, till we come to praise Him in glory everlasting.
