TO SING AND TO PRAISE

In both sacred and secular history we find almost innumerable accounts of people coming together to sing praises to God for benefits bestowed, for victories won; and this is well, for of all mortal shortcomings few are more unworthy than ingratitude. It is well to know and acknowledge that it is God "from whom all blessings flow," and to be grateful for those blessings.

It is not so frequently, however, that we find any record of people coming together to sing and to praise God for blessings not as yet made manifest, victories not yet won. Communities, states, and nations, in anticipation of impending calamity, sometimes seek the Lord in prayer, imploring Him, the unchangeable God, to change His plans and avert their doom; but at a time when complete annihilation seems inevitable, to sing and to praise would seem to many no doubt like the very height of folly. It is true, nevertheless, that such events have happened, and in them there was no semblance of folly.
