Excerpt from Sparkling Diamonds: A Collection of New Music for Sabbath School, Gospel Meetings, and the Home Circle
Music is the source of purest enjoyment. It may occupy the vacant hours, express happily the lively feelings of childhood and youth, and afford rest and refreshment to minds wearied with the cares of life. The gladness of the heart is deepened by its power, and sorrow is oft times relieved by being expressed in song. The full inﬂuence of music is only felt where it is combined with appropriate words and is employed in impressing useful instruction on the mind and elevated and devotional feelings in the heart. It has been justly observed that the ballads of a nation have as much inﬂuence as its laws, and in a country where the laws and the Government are based on the character of the people, it becomes of great importance that every avenue to the conscience and to the heart be guided by virtue and piety.
It is with the hope of contributing to this result that sparkling diamonds is given to the pub lic. In regard to the music herein presented, the author may be permitted to say it is mostly original, from various popular authors, and many of the hymns have been written expressly for this book.
