Let all the Angels of God Worship Him

Representative Text

1 How great the wisdom, power and grace
Which in redemption shine!
The heavenly host with joy confess
The work is all divine,
The work is all divine.

2 Before His feet they cast their crowns–
Those crowns which Jesus gave–
And with ten thousand thousand tongues
Proclaim His power to save,
Proclaim His power to save.

3 They tell the triumphs of His cross,
The sufferings which He bore:
How low He stooped, how high He rose,
And rose to stoop no more,
And rose to stoop no more.

4 O let them still their voices raise,
And still their songs renew:
Salvation well deserves the praise
Of men and angels, too,
Of men and angels, too.

Amen.

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 >
