During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Representative Text

1 ألا تسيل حقاً
عينايَ بالمياهْ
وها المسيح ربي
بكى على الخطاهْ
فلنذرفنَّ دمعاً
على خطايانا
بتوبةٍ وحزنٍ
للرب مولانا

2 عليكِ حزناً يبكي
يا نفسيَ ابنُ اللهْ
كيف إذاً لا أبكي
لخطإٍ أبكاهْ
نبكي هنا لكيما
نُسَرَّ في السماءْ
فليس فيها إثمٌ
إذاً فلا بكاءْ

Benjamin Beddome was born at Henley-in Arden, Warwickshire, January 23, 1717. His father was a Baptist minister. He studied at various places, and began preaching in 1740. He was pastor of a Baptist society at Bourton-on-the-Water, Gloucestershire, until his death in 1795. In 1770, he received the degree of M.A. from the Baptist College in Providence, Rhode Island. He published several discourses and hymns. "His hymns, to the number of 830, were published in 1818, with a recommendation from Robert Hall." Montgomery speaks of him as a "writer worthy of honour both for the quantity and the quality of his hymns." --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872.… Go to person page >
