Ye followers of the Prince of peace

Representative Text

1 Ye foll'wers of the Prince of peace,
Who round his table draw!
Remember what his spirit was,
What his peculiar law.

2 The love, which all his bosom fill'd,
Did all his actions guide:
Inspir'd by love, he liv'd and taught;
Inspir'd by love, he died.

3 And do you love him? do you feel
Your warm affections move?
This is the proof which he demands,
That you each other love.

4 Let each the sacred law fulfil,
Like his be ev'ry mind;
Be ev'ry temper form'd by love,
And ev'ry action kind.

5 Let none, who call themselves his friends,
Disgrace the honor'd name;
But by a near resemblance prove
The title which they claim.

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 >
