Representative Text

1 Ascend thy throne, almighty King,
And spread thy glories all abroad;
Let thine own arm salvation bring,
And be thou known the gracious God.

2 Let millions bow before thy seat,
Let humble mourners seek thy face,
Bring daring rebels to thy feet,
Subdued by thy victorious grace.

3 O let the kingdoms of the world
Become the kingdoms of the Lord;
Let saints, and angels praise thy name,
Be thou thro' heaven and earth ador'd.

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 >

Notes

Ascend Thy throne, Almighty King. B. Beddome. [Missions.] A short hymn in 3 stanzas of 4 lines on behalf of Missions, which was given in Rippon's Selection, 1787, No. 370, and repeated unaltered in all subsequent editions of the same. It was also included in R. Hall's edition of Beddome's Hymns, 1817. The use of this hymn in Great Britain has almost ceased, but in America it is given in a great number of collections, and is most popular.

-- John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
