Profile:
American composer of hymns, choir leader and Sunday school teacher (19 August 1856 – 21 December 1938).

Black start­ed his mu­sic­al ca­reer with John How­ard of New York and Dan­iel Town­er of the Moody Bi­ble In­sti­tute. He moved to Wil­liams­port, Penn­syl­van­ia, around 1881, and was an ac­tive mem­ber of the Pine Street Meth­od­ist Epis­co­pal Church from 1904 un­til his death, serving as a song lead­er and Sun­day school teach­er. He al­so ed­ited a doz­en Gos­pel song books, wrote al­most 1,500 songs, and served on the com­mis­sion for the 1905 Meth­od­ist hymn­al.

Some of his hymns include:
"Come, Oh, Come to Me," "The Day of All Days," "We Shall Reign with Him in Glory," and "When The Roll Is Called Up Yonder."

Some of hymn music with lyrics by others include:
"A Home in My Heart for Jesus," "I Remember Calvary," and "When the Saints are Marching In" (1896). [The lyrics to "When the Saints are Marching In" are by Katharine E. Purvis. This song is not to be confused with "When The Saints Go Marching In," which was published in 1927 with similar words and music and is most certainly derivative.]
