Church hymns bring about a melody of love

My, my, not only is Mr. DeVol an expert on federal, state and local government, but now he is an expert on the music played in our churches.

Well, Mr. DeVol, I happen to be one of those old grannies that you so graciously ridiculed a few weeks ago. In case this is something you didn’t know, those old hymns are prayers put to music. So I am going to pray for you, Mr. DeVol, and for this old world because God knows you can use a lot of it and because in my heart there rings a melody with heaven’s harmony. In my heart there rings a melody of love.

Clarice M. Gill
