"What is the Lord telling us? He is telling us that singing and prayer are, in some ways, interchangeable. He wants us to lift up our hearts, to rejoice, and to cleave to our covenants." Chieko N. Okazaki, "Disciples," [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1998], p. 241

"Unfortunately not all music is good and edifying. Lucifer uses much that goes by the name of music to lead people to that which does not edify and is not of God. Just as language can be used to bless or curse, so music is a means of singing praises to the Lord or of planting evil thoughts and desires in the minds of men." Bruce R. McConkie, "The Promised Messiah: The First Coming of Christ," [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1978], p. 553

"I have noticed that an increasing number of our leaders and members do not sing the congregational songs. Perhaps they do not know them or there are not enough hymnbooks. We should sing the songs of Zion-they are an essential part of our worship. We must not neglect the hymns nor the exalted anthems of the Restoration." Boyd K. Packer, "Things of the Soul," [Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1996], p. 93

"I believe that parents have a responsibility to set a proper spirit in the morning before people leave for work and school. For some years, each morning we've played music on the stereo. Sometimes we play something lively like 'You Are My Sunshine,' 'Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah,' 'When the Red, Red Robin,' or other fun music—something lively to get everyone going. At other times we play spiritual music, such as hymns performed by the Tabernacle Choir, that fill the house and lift everybody's spirits. Music can have a great impact on our families if we use it appropriately." Gene R. Cook, "Raising Up a Family to the Lord," [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1993], p. 56

(12/11/02)
"Sacred music has a unique capacity to communicate our feelings of love for the Lord. This kind of communication is a wonderful aid to our worship. Many have difficulty expressing worshipful feelings in words, but all can join in communicating such feelings through the inspired words of our hymns." Dallin H. Oaks, "Worship through Music," Ensign, Nov. 1994, p. 9
