Representative Text

1 The truth of God shall still endure,
And firm His promise stand;
Believing souls may rest secure
In His almighty hand.

2 Should earth and hell their forces join,
He would condemn their rage,
And render fruitless their design
Against His heritage.

3 The rainbow 'round about His throne
Proclaims His faithfulness;
He will His purposes perform,
His promises of grace.

4 The hills and mountains melt away,
But He is still the same;
Let saints to Him their homage pay
And magnify 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 >
