1 Bless’d is the man whose confidence
Is fixed on God, his strong defense;
Midst dangers he shall dwell secure,
And view eternal blessings sure.

2 Though pestilential vapors spread
Their baleful influence o’er his head,
Though noxious fumes infect the air,
Fearless he breathes, and safely there.

3 Though thick the arrows round him fly,
And thousands sicken, thousands die;
Unawed he hears expiring groans,
And God’s preserving goodness owns.

4 Or if commissioned, the disease,
Among the rest, the Christian seize;
E’en then his trembling lips rejoice,
And death but elevates his voice.

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 >
