Elijah was “king” for the hour.

When pagans tried to show power,

Their gods heard them not,

His God the fire brought.

Deeds made the queen a tad sour.

ON THIS DATE

Virgil P (Prentiss) Brock died 3/12/1978, at Jackson, MI. He was born to Orlando & Elmira Brock, 1/6/1887, at Mercer County, OH. He was schooled at Fairmount Friends Academy, Earlham College (B A) & Cleveland Bible Institute & Training School.  He was ordained a minister of the Christian Church at 19. He pastored several Quaker churches but most of his life’s ministry was given to evangelistic endeavors.

In 1914 he met & married Blanche daughter of Dr & Mrs James D Kerr. She attended the Indianapolis Conservatory of Music & the American Conservatory of Music, Chicago. She was composer/pianist for her husband – without question her contribution greatly enhanced his ministry. They had one son (Dr James Wilson Brock). Blanch died 1/3/1958 & Virgil married Martha Anderson (1959) & continued singing.

Virgil wrote over 500 songs some of the best known being “Beyond the Sunset” “He’s a Wonderful Savior to Me” “He’s Everything to Me” “Resting in His Love” “Let God Have His Way” & “I’ll Still Live On.” He resided at Winona Lake, IN, many years closely associated with Homer Rodeheaver – most of his hymns were published by Rodeheaver. He was awarded an Honorary Degree of Sacred Music from Trinity College, Dunedin, FL. He is buried by Blanche – “Beyond the Sunset’ is engraved on their monument.

“Beyond the sunset,  O blissful morning,

When with our Saviour   Heav’n is begun.

Earth’s toiling ended,   O glorious dawning;

Beyond the sunset   When day is done.”
