Representative Text

1 Where’er the blustering north wind blows,
And spreads its frosts or fleecy snows;
Where’er the sun with quickening ray,
Shines all abroad and gives the day—

2 Where’er the lesser orbs of light
Dart forth their beams and gild the night,
There may His heralds loud proclaim,
The Savior’s love, the Savior’s name.

3 In work so pleasing, so benign,
Let all the saints in concert join;
A name so great, a love so strong,
In every world demands a song.

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 >
