Representative Text

1 Hark! the Archangel's trump is sounding,
Solemn tones break on the ear;
Louder now its echoes bounding,
All the earth astonished her:
Christ our Saviour doth appear.

2 See the righteous dead are waking,
Coming forth from dust anew;
Light resplendent o'er them breaking;
Jesus Christ appears to view!
They have found the promise true.

3 Now the happy throng in union
Rise to meet their coming Lord;
Joyfully they hold communion,
Entering on their great reward:
Praise his gracious name and word.

4 Freed from every pain and sorrow,
Every tear is wiped away;
No forebodings of a morrow
Dark and fearful all is day!
Day forever,
With the saints, a blissful day.

Allen, William, D.D., born at Pittsfield, Mass., 1784, graduated at Harvard, 1802. He became Pastor of Pittsfield, 1810; President of Dartmouth University, 1817, and of Bowdoin College, 1820-1839. He died at Northampton, 1868. He published the American Biographical and Historical Dictionary, 1809; Psalms and Hymns, 1835. The latter contains verĀ¬sions of all the Psalms, and 200 original hymns. Some of the hymns, especially those about slavery, are curious. Five are found in Campbell's Comprehensive Hymn Book, Lond., 1837. His compositions have almost entirely passed out of use. [Rev. F. M.
