Representative Text

1 How free and boundless is the grace
Of our redeeming God,
Extending to the Greek and Jew,
And men of every blood!

2 The mightiest king and meanest slave,
May his rich mercy taste;
He bids the beggar and the prince,
Unto the gospel feast.

3 None are excluded thence, but those,
Who do themselves exclude;
Welcome the learned and polite,
The ignorant and rude.

4 Come then ye men of every name,
Of every rank and tongue;
What you are willing to receive,
Doth unto you belong.

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 >
