Composer: W. Howard Doane

Doane, W. H. (William Howard), born in Preston, Connecticut, 1831, and educated for the musical profession by eminent American and German masters. He has had for years the superintendence of a large Baptist Sunday School in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he resides. Although not a hymnwriter, the wonderful success which has attended his musical setting of numerous American hymns, and the number of his musical editions of hymnbooks for Sunday Schools and evangelistic purposes, bring him within the sphere of hymnological literature. Amongst his collections we have:— (1) Silver Spray, 1868; (2) Pure Gold, 1877; (3) Royal Diadem, 1873; (4) Welcome Tidings, 1877; (5) Brightest and Best, 1875; (6) Fountain of Song; (7) Songs of Devotion, 1870;… Go to person page >

Notes

VISION, composed by William H. Doane (PHH 473), was first published in the 1883 Baptist Hymnal, of which Doane was musical editor. There the tune, named GOD OF OUR STRENGTH, was set to the 1882 Francis J. Van Alstyne (pseudonym for Fanny J. Crosby, PHH 473) text "God of Our Strength, Enthroned Above." In the 1912 Psalter and all subsequent editions of the Psalter Hymnal, VISION was set to "The Ends of All the Earth Shall Hear." Presumably its name comes from the visionary nature of this text. Sing in harmony with forceful accompaniment. Use brass instruments for festive services. --Psalter Hymnal Handbook
