1 The holy eunuch, when baptized,
Went on his way with joy;
And who can tell what rapturous thoughts,
Did then his mind employ?

2 "Is that most glorious Savior mine
Of whom I lately read?
Who bearing all my sins and griefs,
Was numbered with the dead?

3 "Is he who bursting from the grave;
Now reigns above the sky
My advocate before the throne,
My portion when I die?

4 "Have I professed his holy name?
Do I his gospel bear
To Ethiopia's scorched lands,
And shall I spread it there?

5 "Blessed pool! in which I lately lay,
And left my fears behind;
What an unworthy wretch am I!
And God profusely kind!

6 "Blessed emblem of that precious blood
Which satisfied for sin;
And of that renovating grace,
Which makes the conscience clean."

7 This pattern, Lord, with sacred joy
Help us to keep in view;
The same our work, the same, O make
Our consolation too.

The Christian's duty, exhibited in a series of hymns, 1791

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 >
