Representative Text

1. I am hated, Lord, by those
Who Thy holy truth despise;
Save me from my wicked foes,
Lord of hosts, arise, arise!

2. Thou’rt my rock and my defense;
Thou a tower unto Thy saints;
Thee I make my confidence,
Thee I’ll trust, though nature faints.

3. Glad Thy mercies will I sing,
All Thy power and love confess;
Thou hast been, O heavenly King,
My safe refuge in distress!

4. Songs with every morning’s light,
Lord, shall rise up to Thy throne;
All Thy saints shall praise Thy might,
And Thy mercy shall make known.

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. Bird, M.A.] --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)  Go to person page >
