1. God is the fountain whence
[originally, Love is the fountain whence]
Ten thousand blessings flow;
To Him my life, my health, and friends,
And every good, I owe.

2. The comforts He affords
Are neither few nor small;
He is the source of fresh delights,
My portion and my all.

3. He fills my heart with joy,
My lips attunes for praise;
And to His glory I’ll devote
The remnant of my days.

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 >
