1 How great, how solemn is the work,
Which we attend to day!
Now for a holy, solemn frame,
O God, to thee we pray.

2 O may we feel as once we felt,
When pained and griveed at heart;
Thy kind, forgiving, melting look,
Relieved our every smart.

3 Let grace which then was exercised,
Be exercised again;
And, nurtured by celestial power,
In exercise remain.

4 Awake our love, our fear, our hope,
Wake fortitude and joy;
Vain world begone; let things above,
Our happy thoughts employ.

5 Whilst thee, our Savior and our Lord,
To all around we own;
Drive each rebellious, rival lust,
Each traitor from the throne.

6 Instruct our minds, our wills subdue,
To heaven our passions raise;
That hence our lives, our all may be
Devoted to thy praise.

A Selection of Hymns, from Various Authors, Supplementary for the use of Christians. 1st Ed., 1816

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 >
