Evans, John M. (Hilltown, Pennsylvania, November 30, 1825--?). Baptist. Appointed superintendent of the Sunday School at Tenth Baptist Church, Philadelphia, in 1854. Under his direction, the Sunday School became the first in that city to make music a prominent feature of its activities. In 1872, he was elected President of the Baptist Sunday School Association of Philadelphia. Author of several hymns and tunes. Included in Devotional Hymn Book (Philadelphia, 1864) is the text "Amid the joyous scenes of earth" which is interesting in that the refrain is the same as the one for the Doddridge text "Oh, happy day, that fixed my choice." --Deborah Carlton Loftis, DNAH Archives Go to person page >
