Post Ordering Songbooks

FYI to all interested:

My brother just talked to Bro. Frank Blevins who makes orders for the Thomas Hymnal and Sweet Songster. Bro Blevins told my brother he is getting an order ready for around the middle of Feb. If anyone is interested in ordering, PM me and I will get you his phone number.

Another thing my brother told me was Bro Blevins mentioned that there is a Sweet Songster in the Smithsonian that is not copyrighted by Billups and is older than the 1854 date. I don't recall the actual date on it.

Default The Sweet Songster

The church I go to is a United Baptist church that is just like the ORB. Brother Bob, a man I know and love to hear sing, knows my dad, who is also an ORB Elder in the Sardis association. I used to go to church with Cecil Fields, who was a Tri-state Zion Association of United Baptist preacher and grandson, or great-grandson of W.W. Fields, the 1st moderator of the Sardis association. Now, getting back to the sweet songster, the churches I go to, uses the Sweet songster, but I believe they are very old. I hope to go to church this sunday, weather permitting, and I will try to get some info on it. They also use the Thomas Hymnals...old ones as well, I think. But I will try to do the best I can. Take care and may God bless!! John 3:16

Default Ordered Songbooks

I just ordered some songbooks from Bro. Blevins in KY. I found out why they are so hard to come by. He owns the copyright and printing rights to both books.

He said he's been busy this past year with book orders. I'm thankful to hear that so many are interested in the books.

Bro. David

He may think he owns the printing rights, but in fact the copyright has long expired on both books.

Anyone know who the author is of the song "Hark, listen to the trumpsters"?
There seems to be an author's name in top right corner of Page 115 Sweetsongster by the name of Veder. Anyone know who Veder is?



THE SWEET Songster. 115
HYMN 101. C. M. (VEDER.

HARK!listen to thetrumpeters,
They call for volunteers.
Zion's Bright and flowery mount,
Behold theofficers.

Their horses white,their garments bright,
With courage boldthey stand,
Enlisting soldiers (or their king,
To march for Canaan's land.

It sets my heart all in a flame,
A soldier for to be
I will enlist.gird on myarms,
And fight for liberty.

We want no cowards in our band,
That will Their colors fly;
We call for valiant.hearted men,
Who 're not afraid to die.

0’ see our armies on parade,
How martial they appear,
All arm'd and dress'd in uniform,
They look like men of war.

-Theyfollow theirgreat general,
The great Eternal Lamb;
Hisgarments stain'd in his own blood,
King Jesus ishis name.

Sinners,enlist with JesusChrist,
The eternal Son of God,
And march with us to Canaan's land,
Beyond the swelling flood.




We'llshout and sing forevermore,
In that eternal world,
While Swan and his armies, too,
Shall down to hell be hurl'd.

Lift up your heads, ye soldiers bold,
Redemption's drawing nigh
We soon shall hear the trumpet sound,
That shakes both earth and sky.
-
In Fiery chariots we shall rise.
And leave the world on fire:
And all surround the throne of love,
Obtaining our desire.

Bro. Bob, I have some information, but not much. Maybe Bro. Robert will have more information.

The "CM" in the title is for "common meter," 4/4 time.

The hymn dates back to at least 1835, when The Trumpeters was published in The Southern Harmony, and Musical Companion by William Walker. It lists a "Rev. Mr. McCloud" as composer of the melody; there is no notation on who penned the words.

You can view the page at:

http://www.ccel.org/ccel/walker/harm...eters/710.html

The words are probably older; the hymn was already popular as early as 1835 among the Mormons, who sang it as a battle song. It may even go back to the Revolution, with "Tories" replacing "cowards."

The hymn was later adapted as They Look Like Men of War (taking its name from the last line of the third verse of the 1835 printed version) by black recruits during the Civil War.

Does anyone have an address or phone number? I have to go to the Philadelphia Association this weekend in Flatwoods, Ky. I am carrying the letter of correspondence from the Sardis Association to them. I will ask around and see if anyone has any addresses.

Bro Bob,

I sent you a PM on where to buy the books, but to just let anyone else interested in knowing that due to popular demand lately, they are behind on getting out book orders. I was told that large bookorders are going out first and then smaller ones.

I need to call him back to see how things are going.

David
