« Prev XIII. Hymns of Today Next »


For all the hymns which have been written, there is room in the Wales of to-day for a new school of hymnody. Every age has its peculiar mode of religious expression; the age now dawning in Wales emphatically so. It will be an age of transition and suspense; it will claim the guidance of strong, progressive thought. I trust the Eisteddvod will not exhaust the muse of all its bards. Some of them, surely, will not consider it a vain thing to give the Church of Christ the psalm that will sanctify its anxiety, that will teach it where to find rest and hope and light.

It will not be amiss, therefore, to close the present volume with a few gleanings from contemporary poetry.
