VISION (Doane)

Composer: W. Howard Doane

An industrialist and philanthropist, William H. Doane (b. Preston, CT, 1832; d. South Orange, NJ, 1915), was also a staunch supporter of evangelistic campaigns and a prolific writer of hymn tunes. He was head of a large woodworking machinery plant in Cincinnati and a civic leader in that city. He showed his devotion to the church by supporting the work of the evangelistic team of Dwight L. Moody and Ira D. Sankey and by endowing Moody Bible Institute in Chicago and Denison University in Granville, Ohio. An amateur composer, Doane wrote over twenty-two hundred hymn and gospel song tunes, and he edited over forty songbooks. Bert Polman… 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, 1988
