Full Text

1 Great God, my maker, and my King,
Of thee I'll speak, of thee I'll sing;
All thou hast done, and all thou dost,
Declare thee good, proclaim thee just:

2 Thy ancient thoughts and firm decrees,
Thy threatenings and thy promises,
The joys of Heaven, the pains of hell,
What angels taste, what devils feel.

3 Thy terrors and thine acts of grace,
Thy threatening rod, and smiling face,
Thy wounding and thy healing word,
A world undone, a world restored

4 While these excite my fear and joy;
While these my tuneful lips employ;
Accept O Lord, the humble song,
The tribute of a trembling tongue.

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 >
