Representative Text

1 Sprinkled with reconciling blood,
I dare approach thy throne, O GOD;
Thy face no frowning aspect wears,
Thy hand no vengeful thunder bears!

2 Th' encircling rainbow peaceful sign!
Doth with refulgent brightness shine;
And while my faith! beholds it near,
I bid farewell to every fear.

3 Let me my grateful homage pay;
With courage sing, with fervor pray;
And tho' myself a wretch undone,
Hope for acceptance thro' thy Son--

4 Thy Son, who on the accursed tree,
Expir'd to set the vilest free;
On this I build my only claim,
And all I ask is in his name.

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 >
