Excerpt from Songs of the Church: Or Hymns and Tunes for Christian Worship
Frequently a composition, even of our most venerated lyrists, runs endlessly on into seven, eight, and ten stanzas. Some rejection is, of course, here inevitable. And it sometimes happens that, while s... everal stanzas of an established hymn are vigorous and in all respects excellent, others, usually combined with them, are weak and ineffective. The thought or the feeling toils through them as if burdened, instead of singing itself, as it did in the rest, joyfully heavenward.
