Published in 18 hymnals

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 >

Notes

While carnal men, with all their might. B. Beddome. [Zeal and Diligence.] This hymn appeared in Rippon's Baptist Selection, 1787, in two parts as follows: Pt. i. consisted of 3 stanzas of 4 lines; Pt. ii., beginning "If duty calls and suffering too," in 7 stanzas of 4 lines. From Pt. ii. the hymn "Alike in happiness and woe," in the Baptist Psalms & Hymns, 1858, is taken, the stanzas having been re-written throughout. In Beddome's posthumous Hymns, &c, 1817, portions of the hymn as in Rippon are given as Nos. 161 and 216.

--John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
