Tlio Itov. T. Vo Witt Tnlnnge, I). D., took
as tlio subject of his discourses "A Song
Concerning My Beloved.' His text was
Isaiah v, 1: "Now will I sing to my well lo

Tlio most fascinating themo for n heart
projierly attuned is tho Saviour. Tlicro Is
something In tho morning light to suggest
him, and something in tho evening shadow
to ieak his pruiso. Tho flower breathes
htm, tho star shines him, tho cascudo
proclaims him, nil tho voices of nu
turo clinnt him. Whatever Is grand,
bright mid beautiful, If you only listen
to it, will scnk his prnlw. When I
como in tho sumtner tlmo mid pluck n llowcr,
I think of him who Is "tho Hums of Sharon
and tho Lily of tho Vnlley." When I see In
tlio Holds 11 lamb, I say, "Behold tlio Lntnb
of God that takoth awny tho sin of tho
world." When, In very hot weather, I como
under n projecting ell IT, I gay:

Over tho old-fashioned pulpit tlicro was n
sounding board. Tho volco of tho minister
roso to tho sounding board and then was
struck back again upon tho ears of tho jieople.
And so tho ten thousand voices of earth ris
ing up And tho heavens n sounding loard,
which strikes back to tho oar of all tho na
tions tho praises of Christ. Tho heavens tell
bis glory and tho earth shows his handiwork.
Tho Bible thrills with ono great story of re
demption. Upon a blasted and faded para
Jlso it Kurc4 tho light of a glorious restora
tion. It looked upon Abraham from the
ram caught in tho thicket. It sjioko in the
bleating of tho herds driven down to Jerusa
lem for sacrifice It put Infinite pathos Into
tho speech of uncouth fishermen. It lifted
Paul into tho soventh heaven, and it broke
ujxhi tho oar of St. John with tho brazen
trumpets mid tho doxologyof tho elders and
tho rushing wings of tho seraphim.
Instead of waiting until you get sick nnd
worn out before you speak tho prniso of
Christ, while your heart Is happiest, uud your
step is lightest, and your fortunes smile, nnd
your Mithvfiy blossoms, and tho overarching
heavens drop uion you their benediction,
iiicak tho praises of Jesus.
The old (Ircuk orators, when they saw their
audiences lunttcntlvo and slumbering, had
ono word with which they would rouso them
up to the greatest enthusiasm. In tho midst
of their orations they would stop and cry out,
"Marathon I" and tho jieoplo's enthusiasm
would bo unbounded. My hearers, though
you may havo lieen bornodowu with sin, and
though trouble, nnd trials, nnd temptation
may havo como upon you, and you feel hardly
like looking up, iiiethlnks thero is ono grand,
ro3'nl, imperial word that ought to rouso your
loul to Infinite rejoicing, and that word is
Taking tho suggestion of tho text, I shall
ijieak to you of Christ, our soug. I remark,
in tho flrst place, that Christ ought to bo tho
cradlo song. What our mothers sang to us
when they put us to sleep is singing yet. Wo
may havo forgotten tho words; but thoy
went Into tho MlW of our soul, and will for
ever bo ft part of it. It is not so much what
you formally teach your children ns what
you slug to them. A hymn has wings and
can fly everywhither. Ono hundred nnd
fifty years nftcr you are (lend, and "Ok"
Mortality" has worn out his chisel in rr
cutting your iinmo on tho tombstono, yow
groat grandchildren will bo singing tho song
which this nfternoon you sing to your little
ones gathered about your kneo. Thero is n
place In Switzerland where, If you distinctly
utter your volco, thero como back ten or fif
teen distinct echoes, and every Christian
long sung by a mother in tho car of her child
lhall have ten thousand echoes coming back
from all tho gates of heaven. Oh, if mothers
only know tho power of this sacred spell, how
much oftcuer tlio littlo ones would 1m
gathered, and nil our homes would chime
with tho songs of Jesus I
Wo want somo counteracting Influence
upon our children. Tho vory moment your
child stops into tho street, ho steps Into tho
path of temptation. Thero nro foul mouthed
children who would liko 1 1 h n vour littlo
ones. It will not do to kui j jar boys nnd
girls In tho hotiso and make them house
plants; thoy must havo fresh nir and recrea
tion. Ood Bavo your children from tho
icathlng, blasting, damning iulluenco of the
Itreotsl I know of no counteracting inllu
tnco but tho power of Christian culture and
example Hold before your littlo ones the
pure llfo of Jesus; lot that nnmo lie tho word
that shall exorcise evil from their hearts.
Give to your instruction all tho fascination
of music, morning, noon and night; let it bo
Josus, tho cradlo song. This is important if
your children grow up, but jierhnps thoy
may not. Thoir pathway may bo short.
Jesus may Ik wnnting that child. Tlicn
thero will bo n soundless stop in tho dwelling,
and tho youthful pulso will begin
to flutter, and littlo hands will bo
lifted for help. You can not help.
And a great agony will pinch nt
your heart, nnd tho cradlo will lie empty, and
tho nursery will lio empty, and tho world
will lw empty, and your soul will bo empty.
No littlo feet standing on tho stairs. No toys
scattered on tho enrpot. No quick following
from room to room. No strange and wonder
ing questions, No upturned face, with laugh
ing bluo oyes, como for ft kiss; but only a
gravo, and a wreath of white blossoms on tho
j top of ft; and blttirdesolatlon,nud n hlghiug
' nt nightfall with 110 ono to put to bed, and n
J wet pillow, and ft grave, and a wreath of w hlte
blovsouus on tho top of it. The heavenly
Shepherd will take that lamb safely anyhow,
whether you have lieeu ralthful or unfaith
ful; but would It not havo been pleiuautcr If
you could havo heard from those lips tho
jiraUos of Christ! I uover rend anything
moro beautiful than this alsnit a child's de
parture. Tho account said, "Sho folded her
hands, kissed her mother good-by, mug her
hymn, turned her face to tho wall, said her
littlo prayer, mid then died."
Oh, if I could gather up in 0110 paragraph
tho last words of tho littlo ones who havo
gone out from all these Christian uiroles, and
I could picture tho calm looks, and tho folded
hands, and sweet departure, methlnks it
would bo grand and lcuuUful as ono of heav
ens great doxologlosl
I next speak of Christ uv tlio old man's
sonjr. Quick tnttslo loscti It charm for tho
aged ear. The school girl asks for ft sehot
tlsch or a glee; but her grandmother niks
for "Balernm" or tho "Portuguese Hymn."
Fifty years of trouble havo tamed tho spirit,
and tho keys of tho muslo board must havo
a solemn tread. Though the volco may lie
tremulous, so that grandfather will not tnist
It In church, still ho has the waltii;book oen
Iwforo him, and he sings with his soul. Ho
hums his grandchild uslecp with tho snmo
tuno ho sang forty years ago In tho old coun
try meeting houe. Somo day the rholr sings
n tuno so old that tho young ooplo do not
know it; but It starts the tears down tho
cheek of the ngod man, for It reminds hint of
tho revival seeno In which he participated,
and of tlio radiant faces that long since went
to dust, and of tho gray haired minister lean
ing over tlio pulpit, and sounding tho good
tidings of great Joy.
I wits ono Thanksgiving day In my pulpit,
In Syracuse, N. Y,, nnd llev, Daniel Waldo,
at PS years of age, stood licsldo mo. Tlio
choir sang a tune, I saMt "I ntn sorry they
sang that now tuno; nobody seems to know
It." "Bless you, my son," said tho old man,
"I heard that seventy years ago I"
There was n song today that touched tho
llfo of tho ngod with holy flro and kindled ft
glory on their vision that our younger eye
sight cannot see. It was the song of salva
tion Jesus, who ml them nil their lives
long; Jesus, who wiped away their tears;
Jesus, who stood by them when nil else failed;
Josus, In whoso nnmo their marrlago was
consecrated, and whoso resurrection has
poured light tiou tlio graves of their ifo
parted. Blessed tho B.blo In which spec
tacled old ago rends the promise: "I will
never leavo you. nover forsake yon I" Blessed
tho stair on which tho worn out pilgrim tot
ters on townrd tho welcomo of his redeemer I
Blessed tho hymn lxok In which the falter
ing tongue and the failing oyes flud Jesus,
tho old man's song,
I speak toyoungalnof Jesus ns tho night
song. Job speaks of him who glvclh songs
In tho night. John Welch, tho old Scotch
minister, used to put a plaid across his lied
on cold nights, and somo ono asked him why
ho put that there. Ho said: "Oh, some
times in tho night I want to sing tho prniso
of Jesus, and to get down and pray; then 1
Just take that plaid and wrap it around mo
to keep myself from the cold." Songs in tho
night! Night of trouble has como down
ujiou many of you, Commercial losses put
out ono star, slanderous abuse puts out an
other star, domestic liercnvmetit has put out
a thousand lights, nnd gloom lias been added
to gloom, nnd chill to chill, and sting to
sting, and ono midnight has seemed to bor
row tlio fold from another midnight to wrap
Itself in more unbearable darkness; but
Christ has spoken peace to your heart, and
you can sing;
Jesus, lover of my soul,
I,ct mo to thy losom fly,
While the billows near 1110 roll,
While the tempest still Is high.
Hide me, oh, my Karlourt hldo
Till tho storm of llfo Is past,
Safe Into the haven guide;
Oh, receive my soul at last.

no water for tho hot lips, no kind baud to

Tho Sabbath day has como. From the
altars of ten thousand churches has smoked
up tho savor of sacrifice. Ministers of tho
gos(iel are now preaching in plain English,
In broad Scotch, in flowing Italian, In harsh
Choctaw. God's people have assembled in
Hindoo temple, and Moravian church, nnd
Quaker meeting house, and sailor's liethcl,
aud king's chapel, and high towered cntho
drul. They sang, mid tho song floated olf
amidst tho splco groves, or struck tho ice
bergs, or floated off into tho western pines, or
was drowned in the clamor of the great cities.
Lumbcrmon sang it, and the factory girls,
and tho children in tho Sabliatli class,
and tho trained choirs In great as
semblages. Trappors, with tho nanio voice
with which they shouted yesterday in
tho stag hunt, and mariners with throats
that only n few days ago sounded In the
hoarso blast of tho sea hurricane, they sang
It, Ono themo for tho sermons. One burden
for tho song. Jesus for tho invocation.
Jesus for tho Scripture lesson. Jesus for tho
baptismal font. Jesus for tho sacrnmcntal
eup. Jesus for the boucdlctlou. But the day
will go by. It will roll awayou swift wheel
of light nnd love. Again tho churehas will
bo lighted, Tides of jteoplo again setting
down the streets. Whole families coming up
tho church aisle. Wo must have 0110 more
sermon, two prayers, three songs, and ono
benediction. Whntshall wo preach to-night
What shall wo rend? What shall It bo, chil
dren? Agod men and women, what shall it
lie) Young men mid maidens, w hat shall It
bo? If you dared to break tho silence of this
auditory there would como up thousands of
qiilek'nnd Jubilant voices crying out, "Let it
bo Jesus I Jesusl"
Wo sing his birth tlio barn that sheltered
him, the mother that nursed him, tho cattle
that fed beside him, tho angels that woko up
tlio shepherds, shaking light over tlio mid
night hi!!. Wo sing his ministry tho tears
ho wiped away from tlio eye of the orphans;
the laiiio men that forgot their erutchei,; tho
damsel who from the bier hounded out into
the sunlight, her locks shaking down over
tlio flushed cheek; the hungry thousand who
broke the bread as it blossomed into larger
loaves that miracle by which a boy with
live loatw mid two fishes became the sutler
for ft whole army. Wo slug his sorrows hU
stone bruised feet, Ills aching Qheart, his
mountain loneliness, his desert hunger, Ills
Btorm iielted lssly, tho eternity of anguish
that shot through his last moments, anil th
Immeasurable ocean of torment that heaved
up against his croBs In one foaming, wrath
ful, omnlitotont surge, tho sun dashed out,
and the dead, shroud w rapped, breaking open
their sepulchers, and rushing out to see what
was the mutter. Wo slug his uwurnxtlon-
Iho guard that could not keep him; the fur
row of his disciples; tho clouds piling up on
either side In pillared splendors as ho went
through, trending tho atli1ess nlr, higher
nnd higher, until ho eamo to the foot of the
throne, and nil heaven kept Jubilee at tho
return of the conqueror.
I say once more, Christ Is tho everlasting
song. Tho very best singers sometimes got
tired; tlifl strongest threats sometimes get
weary, nnd many who sang very sweetly do
not sing now, but I hoie by tho grace of God
we wlli, after a while, go up and slug tho
praises of Christ where wo will never lw
weary. You know there nro some songs that
nreosjicclnlly appropriate for tho home circle.
They stir the soul, they stnrt tho tears, they
turn tlio heart In oil Itself, and keep sounding
after the tune has stoped, like somo cathe
dral IkjII which, long after the tap of the
brazen tongue has ceased, keeM throbbing on
tho air. Well, It will bo a homo soug In
heaven; all tho sweeter because those who
sang with us In the domestic elrclo on earth
shall Join that great harmony,
Jerusalem, my happy home
Namo over dear to mo;
When shall my lalsm hiuo an end
In Joy and peace In thee.
On earth wo sang harvest songs ns the
wheat eamo Into tlio luirii, aud tho barracks
were filled. You know there is no such tiiuo
on n farm as when they get the crops In; nnd
so In heaven It will bo a harvest song on tlio
part of those who on earth sowed in tears
nnd renipod In Joy. Lift up your heads, ye
everlasting gates, and let tho sheaves come
flit Angels shout all through tho heavens,
and multitudes comedown the hills crying:
"Harvest homo! harvest homol"
There Is nothing more Switching to ono's
ear than tho song of sailors far out at sea,
whether In day or night, Qis they pull nway
nt the rojies; the liumlo Is weird nnd thrilling.
So tho song in heaven will lo n sailor's song.
They were voyagers once, and thought thoy
could never get to shore, and before thoy
could get tilings snug aud trim thoeyclono
struck them, But now they nro safe. Onco
they went with damaged rigging, guns of
distress booming through the storm; but tho
pilot eamo ftltonrd, uud he brought them into
tho hnrlsir. Now thoy sing of tho breakers
past, tho lighthouses that showed them where
to sail, the pilot that took them through tho
straits, the eternal shore on which thoy
Ay, It will bo tho children's song. You
know very well that tlio vast mojorlty
of our race die in Infancy, and it is estimated
that eighteen thousand millions of the little
ones are standing ls-foro God. When thoy
shall rise up altout the throno to sing, the
millions and tho millions of tlio little ones
ah I that will lie inuslo for you I Thro played
In tho street of Babylon and Thebes; these
plucked lilies from tho foot of Olivet while
Christ was preaching aliout them; these waded
In Slloam; these were victims of Herod's
massnero; these were thrown to crocodiles or
Into the flro; these came up from Christian
homes, nnd these were foundlings on tho city
commons children eve ywhero in all that
laud; children in the towers, children on tho
seas of glass, children on tlio battlements.
Ah, If you do not liko children, do not go
there. They are In vast majority, and what
a song when they lift it around about the
Tho Christian singers nnd comiiosers of all
ages will I hi thereto Join In the soug. Thomas
Hustings wilt lio there. Lowell Mason will
lie there. Bradbury will Ixi there. Beetho
ven nnd Mozart will bo there. They who
sounded the cymbals and tho triiuqiets In the
ancient temples will lw there. Tho forty
thousand hnrjM'rs that stood nt the ancient
dedication will Imi there. Tho two hundred
singers that assisted on that day will bo there.
Patriarchs who lived nmldst threshing
floors, shepherds who watched amidst Chal
dean hills, prophets who walked, with long
beards and coarso apparel, pronouncing woo
against ancient abominations, will meet the
more recent martyrs who wont up with leajn
lug cohorts of fire; and somo will sjicak of
tlio Jesus of whom thoy propheshsl, and
others of the Jesus for whom they died. Oh,
whatiiHougl It came to John uimiii l'atmos;
it came to Calvin in tho prison; it dropiied
to John Knox In the flro; nnd sometimes
that wing has come to your ear, jwrhaps, for
I really (io think It sometimes breaks over
tlio battlements of heaven.
A Christian woman, tho wife of a minister
of tho rohim'I, was dying In tho parsonage
near tho old church, where on Saturday
night tho choir used to assemble and rehearse
for tho following Sabbath, and sho said:
"How strangely sweet tho choir rehearses
to-night; thoy havo lieeu rehearsing therefor
an hour." "No," said somo one about her,
"tho choir is not rehearsing tonight." "Yes,"
sho said, "I know thoy are, I hear them slug;
how very sweetly they slngl" Now It was
not a choir of earth that sho heard, but the
choir of heaven. I think that Jesus some
times sets ajar the door of heaven, and a
passago of that rapture greets our cars. The
minstrels of leaven striko such n tremendous
strain, the walls of Jasper cannot hold It.
J wonder, will you slug that song? Will I
sing it? Not unless our sins are pardoned,
and wo learn now to slug tho prniso or Christ,
will wo ever sing it there. Tho flrst great
concert that I ever attended was In New
York, when Julleu, in the Crystal Palace,
stood before hundrodsof singers and hundreds
of players Ukmi Instrument. Somo of you
may remember that occasion; it was the first
ono of that kind at which I was present, and
I shall never forget it, I saw that one man
standing, and with tlio hand and foot wield
that great harmony, boating the time. It was
to mo overwhelming. But oh, tho grander
scene, when thoy shall come from tho east,
and from tho west, aud from the north,
and from tho south, "a great multitude that
no man can number," into the temple of the
skies, host Issyond host, rank beyond rank,
gallery almvo gallery, nnd Jesus shall stand
Is-foro that great host to conduct tho bar
moiiy, with his wounded hands and his
wounded feet, Like the voice of many
waters, liko tho voice of mighty thundering,
thoy shull cry, "Worthy is the Ijmb thot
was slain to receive blessings, and riches, and
honor, aud glory, and power, world without
end. Amen and amen!" Oh, if my ear shall
hear no other sweet sounds, may I hear that!
If I Join no other glad assemblage, may I
