Full Text

1 Unto thine altar Lord,
A broken heart I bring;
And wilt thou graciously accept
Of such a worthless thing?

2 To Christ the bleeding lamb,
My faith directs its eyes
Thou may'st reject that worthless thing,
But not his sacrifice.

3 When he gave up the Ghost,
The law was satisfied;
And now to its most rigorous claims,
I answer, "Jesus died."

A New Selection of Hymns, 1812

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 >
