Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1.
Ye trembling captives hear!
The gospel trumpet sounds,
No music more can charm the ear,
Or heal thy heartfelt wounds.

2.
'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. The writer is sometimes described as "Samuel Boyce"; but nothing definite is known to us concerning him. Of these hymns the following are in common use:— 1. All hail, redeeming Lord. 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 >
