Munsell's Sons, 1890; pp 369-370; NEHGS Library, Boston, MA.
Rev Edmund H Sears was graduated at Union Coll. in 1834, and at
Cambridge Theo. School in 1837; began to preach as a missionary at Toledo, OH, remaining nearly a year, - was ordained Pastor of 1st Church(Unitarian),
Wayland, MA, 1839, installed as colleague of Dr Field, Pastor of the Unit.
Church at Weston, MA, in May 1865, and succeeded him as Pastor in Nov 1869.
He visited Europe in 1873, and was severely injured by the fall of a tree in his orchard in 1874.
He was a man of singularly modest and retiring nature. His health had long
been feeble, and he shrunk from personal display of any sort. But as a writer, as a preacher, and as a man, he has left a memory which will be long and lovingly cherished by all who knew him.
A saintlier soul has rarely been enshrined in mortal frame.
But for his early impaired health and enfeebled voice, he would have been
deemed eloquent in utterance, no less than in style, for his delivery had every attractive and impressive quality, within the limited spaces in which he alone dared to seek a hearing.
Those that knew him felt that his place was with the beloved apostle, in
closest union and sympathy with his Divine Master.
There was a sweet serenity of spirit in his whole demeanor,speech and
character, which made him in every relation of life unspeakably dear.
Simple, modest, unassuming, even diffident, he was the last person to make of set purpose any manifestation of piety; but a beauty of holiness so pure and radiant as his could not be kept under cover.
All who came within its sphere felt profoundly the sanctity, purity and
loveliness of its character.
His style was the transcript of his thought and feeling.
There was a view of high poetic inspiration, not only in those lyrics which
are finding their place in the worship of Christian sanctuaries wherever the
English tongue is spoken, but almost equally in his prose, which is never otherwise than rhythmical, glowing and fervent.
Amongst other works of his were: lyrics to the Christmas
song "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear","Regeneration,""Athanasia,""The Fourth
Gospel the Heart of Christ,""Sermons and Songs of the Christian
Life,""Christian Lyrics etc, and he edited, with Rev R Ellis, "The Monthly
Religious Magazine."
In 1857 he published an historical romance entitled "Pictures of the Olden
Time," in connection with which he edited the "Sears Genealogy," from papers
furnished him by Hon David Sears [5768] of Boston, but which have since been
found to contain much erroneous inforamtion based upon legends incapable of
proof. See ante, "English Ancestry."

BIOGRAPHY:THE GOSPEL IN HYMNS; 1870; ; p 517; from Phebe Ann Glaze, N
Hollywood, CA; Rev Edmund Hamilton Sears (1810-1876) American Unitarian. SEARS was a humble clergyman who lives only in two Christmas hymns. Born in the Massachusetts Berkshires, educated at Union College and the Harvard Divinity School (1837), he spent most of his life as pastor at Wayland, MA. In addition to his preaching he did editorial work for twelve years on the Monthly Religious Magazine and wrote several volumes on religious subjects. His first hymn, written while a divinity student, was "Calm on the listening ear of night" - still frequently used. His second is found in all of our hymnals.
"It came upon a midnight clear" [1846]. No Christmas is perfect without the
singing of this hymn. It is one of the finest ever written, not only because of its melodious rendering of the Biblical story of angels and shepherds (stanza 1) but because it is one of the first to emphasize the social significance of the angel's message (st 2-5).
In stanza 2 unrolls the never-ending procession of Christmas days. The
remembered angels and their song are reminders that the world was not intended to be weary, its plains need not be sad and lonely, nor its sounds a Babel instead of a symphony. These angels are the very hope of man springing
eternally in the human breast.
Stanza 3 hints at the actuality rather than the ideal: the devastations, the slaughter, the hatreds, the vengeance, the struggle for power, the savage greed of men have drowned out the celestial music for two milleniums. As the poet was writing these lines his fellow citizens were killing Mexicans in order that they might enslave more Negroes, and the Civil War was looming over the horizon.
Stanza 4 becomes more personal. It urges all who find the burden of life too heavy-victims of poverty, disease, social injustice-to listen awhile to the angelic reminder that Good Will is heaven's law of life and can yet heal all their wounds.
Stanza 5 relieves the picture of human wrongs by reminding us that the song
is still valid. Eternal in the human heart springs the hope, the passioante
faith, that what men so desperately have longed for - that "Age of Gold"- will surely come to pass. "Saints, apostles, prophets, martyrs" are all answering, "Yes!"
It came upon the midnight clear,
Tha glorious song of old,
From angels bending near the earth
To touch their harps of gold:
Peace on the earth, goodwill to men,
From heav'n's all gracious King!
The world in solemn stillness lay
To hear the angels sing.

Still through the cloven skies they come,
With peaceful wings unfurled;
And still their heav'nly music floats
O'er all the weary world
Above its sad and lowly plains
They bend on hov'ring wing;
And ever o'er its Babel sounds
The blessed angels sing.

Yet with the woes of sin and strife
The world has suffered long;
Beneath the angel-strain have rolled
Two thousand years of wrong;
And man, at war with man, hears not
The love-song which they bring:
O hush the noise, ye men of strife,
And hear the angels sing!

Fo lo! the days are hastening on,
By prophet-bards foretold,
When, with the ever-circling years,
Comes round the age of gold;
When peace shall over all the earth
Its ancient splendours fling,
And te whole world send back the song
Which now the angels sing.

Theo Sem'y, 1829; studied several years at Halle, Leipsic and Berlin; was two
years Pastor 1st Bapt Ch, Hartford, CT; afterward Prof Ham. Theo Sem'y, NY,
(now Madison Univ) and Prof. and Pres. Newton Theo Sem'y, Newton, MA
In 1848, he succeeded Horace Mann as Sec. Mass. Board of Education, and was
from 21 Aug 1855 to Feb 1867, President of Brown University.
From 1867 until his death, he rendered valuable services as General Agent of
the Trustees of the Fund given by the late George Peabody for the benefit of
Southern education.
He published "Nohden's Grammar of the English Language," in 1842; "Classical
Studies," 1843; "Ciceronia, or the Prussian Mode of Instruction in Latin," 1844;
"Memoir of Rev Bela Jacobs," 1847; "Life of Luther," 1850; since republished in
England with the title "Mental and Spiritual Life of Luther", 1850; numerous
reports on education, occaisonal addresses, and contributions to reviews and
other periodicals, and to "Appleton's American Cyclopedia."
In 1838, and for several years he edited the "Christian Review," and later
"Bibliotheca Sacra."
In 1864, he published a discourse on the "Completion of the first century of
Yale College."
Dr Sears was in public life from the time he returned to this country from
Europe in 1837, unitl the year of his death, 1880.
By many he was considered one of the greatest men of the age, and no doubt he
was the foremost educator.
He had made every effort to sevure his own scholarship, as his parents were
unable to render him much assistance, and what he possessed himself he earnestly
wished others to share.
He never was in the company of the young that on parting, they had not
something to remember, which he had imparted in a pleasant manner.
His social and domestic life was not so full of incidnets as might be expected
, considering his peculiar gifts of wit, conversation and quick repartee, for he
was a devoted student, even to the last days of his career.
Each year he was accustomed to take some one of the languages, and renew his
intimacy with it.
He spoke and wrote with comparative ease, Greek, Latin, French, German,
Spanish and Italian, and had a fair knowledge of Hebrew and Sanscrit.
In English he was a sure authority, and it was an absolute pain to him to hear
it badly spoken by those who should use it correctly.
His wife was accustomed to say that she almost wished she was book, as then
she should receive his attention occasionally, and his children sometimes
remarked that they wished company would come, so that the sound of his voice
would be heard.
Such things rather pained him, while he treated them as jests, and he would
lay aside pen and paper, and endeavor to "be sociable," but soon he would be
seen in his own familiar place, utterly oblivious to his surroundings.
He had a very warm and affectionate nature, and although separated from all
his brothers and sisters for many years, he seldom spoke of them without emotion
Of his mother he had the tenmderest remembrance; he always described her to
his children, who never saw her, as one of the best and sweetest Christians.
His father was quick-tempered and uneven in his spirits, but the mother was
uniform and mild.
He had an old uncle Simeon, who use dto be rather severe with his mischievous
Although Barnas was his favorite, he was very impatient at his fondness for
books, and when he found him stretched under the shade fo a tree, or sheltered
from sight in any sequestered nook, he would chide him for laziness, and not
unfrequently lay his riding whip about the boy's legs.
In spite of his fault-finding, however, he was proud of his talents, and in
later life often said, he "always knew that youngster would make his mark."
While religious in the deepest and truest meaning of the word, Dr Sears was
neither sectarian or narrow minded.
He had a broad catholic spirit, and saw good in all men.
When others were sitting in harshest judgement on some unfortunate one, he
had a word of exculpation, or a loophole for possible escape.
In a little pocket diary, found in his coat after death, were a few rules for
self-government. One was, "Criticise yourself severly, others mildly." Another
was, "If not able to say a kind thing of the absent, keep silent."
These maxims were most faithfully observed.
He had inherited a quick temper, but by the time his family were grown, he had
it under perfect control.
After he died, an old colored man-servent, who had lived with him for many
years, told his associates that he had never heard his master speak angrily, anda colored girl who waited on Mrs Sears seventeen years bore the same testimony.
Every one loved him who served him, and while the whole country took sad note
of his death, there was no sincerer regret anywhere than amongst the humble poor
, who were connected with him in domestic life.
