Full Text

1 Great God! where'er we pitch our tent,
Let us an altar raise;
And there, with humble frame, present
Our sacrifice of praise.

2 To thee we give our health and strength,
While health and strength shall last;
For future mercies humbly trust,
Nor e'er forget the past.

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 >

Notes

Great God, where'er we pitch our tent. B. Beddome. [Family Worship.] This hymn on "Going to a new habitation," appeared in Rippon's Selection, 1787, No. 333, in 2 stanzas of 4 lines, and from thence it has passed into a few modern collections. In Beddome's (posthumous) Hymns adapted to Public Worship, 1817, it is given as stanzas iii. and iv. of the hymn, "Bless'd Lord, my wandering heart recal." The text in Rippon and in Beddome's Hymns, is slightly different. The former is that in common use.
