As earth's pageant passes by

Author: Joseph Beaumont

Author: Joseph Beaumont

Beaumont, Joseph, eldest son of Sir John Beaumont, was born March 3, 1615, educated at Westminster, and Peter House, Cambridge, and died Sept. 3, 1652. His Original Poems in English and Latin were published posthumously in 1749. In this work there is a fine poem on "Homo". This has been condensed into a hymn, beginning "As earth's pageant passes by." Consecration to God.) His Psyche (1st pub. 1647), together with selections from his Original Poems, &c., were reprinted in Dr. Grosart's Chertsey Worthies, 1877-80, in 2 volumes. -- John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)  Go to person page >
