Representative Text

Ye trembling captives hear!
The gospel trumpet sounds,
No music more can charm the ear,
Or heal thy heartfelt wounds.

'Tis not the trump of war,
Nor Sinai's awful roar,
Salvation's news it spreads afar,
And vengeance is no more.

The Southern Harmony, 1835

Author: Samuel Boyce

Boyce. Twenty-one hymns appeared under this signature in Williams and Boden's Collection of above Six Hundred Hymns, &c, 1801.

Christ the Day-Spring. 2. Grace, how melodious is the sound. Fulness of Grace. 3. Great Sovereign Lord, what human eye. Harvest. 4. 0 the transcendent love. Christ the Sinner's Friend. 5. Ye trembling captives, hear. The Gospel Trumpet. -- John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)  Go to person page >
