Born: January 23, 1717, Henley-in-Arden, Warwickshire, England.

Died: September 23, 1795, Bourton-on-the-Water, Gloucestershire, England.

Buried: Bourton-on-the-Water, Gloucestershire, England.

Benjamin was the son of Baptist minister John Beddome. He was apprenticed to a surgeon in Bristol, but moved to London in 1739 and joined the Baptist church in Prescott Street. At the call of his church, he devoted himself to the work of Christian ministry, and in 1740 began to preach at Bourton-on-the-Water, Gloucestershire. For many years he was one of the most respected Baptist ministers in western England. He was also a man of some literary culture. In 1752, he wrote A Scriptural Exposition of the Baptist Catechism, by Way of Question and Answer. In 1770, Beddome received a MA degree from Providence College, Rhode Island.

It was Beddome’s practice to write a hymn weekly for use after his Sunday morning sermon. Though not originally intended for publication, he allowed 13 of these to appear in the Bristol Baptist Collection of Ash & Evans (1769), and 36 in Rippon’s Selections (1787). In 1817, a posthumous collection of his hymns was published, containing 830 pieces. Robert Hall wrote of Beddome’s hymns:

The man of taste will be gratified with the beauty and original turns of thought which many of them exhibit, while the experimental Christian will often perceive the most secret movements of his soul strikingly delineated, and sentiments pourtrayed which will find their echo in every heart.
