On the Principle as to the Use of Hymns

On the Principle as to the Use of Hymns.

Whereas the Synod, in discussing and determining the principle of the use of Hymns in the public worship of God, passed a resolution to the effect—"That the use of Hymns is neither unscriptural nor contrary to the standards of our Church and whereas said resolution is defective, and is felt 'o be, by some, a departure from the principle "that nothing is lawful to be introduced into the worship of God but what he hath appointed in His word it is humbly overtured by the Presbytery of Clutha to the Synod of Otago and Southland, that they would take the foregoing premises into their serious consideration, and devise such measures thereanent as may tend to promote the glory of God and the good of the Church.
