Representative Text

1. Did Christ o’er sinners weep? And shall our cheeks be dry? Let floods of penitential grief Burst forth from ev’ry eye. 2. The Son of God in tears The wond’ring angels see; Be thou astonished, Oh my soul, He shed those tears for thee. 3. He wept that we might weep; Each sin demands a tear; In heav’n alone no sin is found, And there’s no weeping there.

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."
