1 Ye worlds of light, that roll so near
The Savior's throne of shining bliss,
O tell how mean your glories are,
How faint, and few, compared with his.

2 We sing the bright and Morning-Star,
(Jesus, the spring or light and love;)
See how its rays, diffused from far,
Conduct us to the realms above.

3 Its cheering beams, spread wide abroad,
Point out the puzzled Christian's way;
Still as he goes, he finds the road
Enlightened with a constant day.

4 [Then when the eastern magi brought
Their royal gifts, a star appears,
Directs them to the babe they sought,
And guides their steps, and calms their fears.]

5 When shall we reach the heavenly place,
Where this bright Star will brightest shine;
Leave, far behind, these scenes of night,
And view a luster so divine!

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 >
