Representative Text

1 Encouraged by Thy love and care,
I bend the suppliant knee,
And offer in Thy house of prayer,
My vows, oh Lord, to Thee.

2 When languor seized my feeble frame,
And threatened speedy death,
From Thee the timely succor came,
Which gave me back my breath.

3 Now by Thy power and grace restored,
And rescued from the grave,
What shall I render to the Lord,
Who mighty is to save?

4 To Thee, my kind delivering friend,
I yield my sinful heart;
My all I give, till life shall end,
Nor from Thee will depart.

5 Upheld by Thine almighty grace,
My love to Thee I’ll prove;
With zeal will run the Christian race
Till I arrive above.

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 >
