Excerpt from A Sermon, Preached November 26, 1829, Being the Day of Thanksgiving: Containing a History of the Origin and Growth of the Second Baptist Church in Newport, (R. I.)

The most important event in the history of the church, under the early administration of Mr. Thurs ton, was the controversy which so long agitated its members, respecting the introduction of singing in the public worship Of God. Perhaps the fashions of this world do not change more entirely, than the Opinions of men. That part of our devotion, which in this house is so beautifully and judiciously con ducted, and which tends so much to animate pious feelings, was once most strenuously opposed, as sa voring too strongly Of the abominations Of mystical Babylon. In 1764, efforts were made to introduce psalmody, and numerous church meetings were called for the purpose, without accomplishing the Object. October 4, 1764, a committee was appoint ed to ascertain the minds of the brethren in gen eral, concerning singing praise to God in the church.

At last, April 18, 1765, a church meeting was held, at which twenty-seven brethren attended eighteen gave it as their mind to sing praise to God every public meeting day. Five gave it as their mind to sing at fifth day mestin s, and two gave their voice against it at any time. 0 we concluded to sing praise to God on all days of public worship.
