Sedgwick's marked copy of John Dobell's New Selection, &c., 1806, it is attributed to Jonathan Allen. What authority Sedgwick had for this ascription we cannot determine. It is through him that it has gained currency. Allen's hymn, "Sinners, will you scorn, &c," is sometimes given with stanzas i. and ii. transposed, as "Hear the heralds of the Gospel," as in the American Baptist Praise Book, N. Y. 1871.
