The Harvest Song

MUSIC has always accompanied religious worship; it has long been expressed either in folk songs or in religious singing. Even the oldest pagan religions expressed their adoration by dances and music.

Mrs. Eddy says in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (pp. 199, 200): "When Homer sang of the Grecian gods, Olympus was dark, but through his verse the gods became alive in a nation's belief. Pagan worship began with muscularity, but the law of Sinai lifted thought into the song of David."
