Representative Text

1 Hail, blest Redeemer!
Thy praises bringing—
Hark, how Thy people
With rapture are singing!

Loud from the mountain-top
Echoes are ringing!
Loud from the mountain-top
Echoes are ringing!
Shout of salvation,
Shouts of salvation
Rending the sky,
Are rending the sky.

2 Thy love proclaiming,
Thy grace extolling,
In waves of glory
The anthems are rolling. [Chorus]

3 Glad the rehearsal,
Our voices blending,
Till in Thy presence
WE sing praise unending. [Chorus]

Showing early musical promise, William Marion Runyan (b. Marion, NY, 1870; d. Pittsburg, KS, 1957) was a substitute church organist by the age of twelve. He became a Methodist minister in 1891 and served several churches in Kansas but turned to evangelism in 1903; he worked for the Central Methodist Conference for the next twenty years. Following that service, Runyan became pastor at the Federated Church at John Brown University, Sulphur Springs, Arkansas. Editor of Christian Workers Magazine, he also served the Moody Bible Institute and was an editor for Hope Publishing Company until his retirement in 1948. Runyan wrote a number of hymn texts, gospel songs, and hymn tunes. Bert Polman Go to person page >
