Full Text

1 Great God of providence! thy ways
Are hid from mortal sight;
Wrapped in impenetrable shades,
Or clothed with dazzling light.

2 The wondrous methods of thy grace,
Evade the human eye;
The nearer we attempt t' approach,
The farther off they fly.

3 But in the world of bliss above,
Where thou dost ever reign,
These mysteries shall be all unveiled,
And not a doubt remain.

4 The sun of righteousness shall there
His brightest beams display,
And not a hovering cloud obscure
That never-ending day.

The Hartford Selection of Hymns from the most approved authors, 1799

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 >
