Representative Text

1 Did Christ o'er sinners weep?
And shall our cheeks be dry?
Let floods of penitential grief
Burst forth from every eye.

2 The son of God in tears
Angels with wonder see!
Be thou astonished, O my soul,
He shed those tears for thee.

3 He wept, that we might weep;
Each sin demands a tear;
In heaven alone no sin is found,
And there's no weeping there.

4 Joy beams in every eye,
And fills each holy heart;
All join to sound the triumph high
In praise to bear their part.

The Hartford Selection of Hymns from the most approved authors, 1799

Author: Benjamin Beddome

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 >
