From Hymnary.org Wallin, Benjamin, son of Edward Wallin, pastor of the Baptist Church, Maze Pond, Southwark, was born in London in 1711. He received a good education under the care of the Rev. John Needham, of Hitchin (father of the hymnwriter of that name, and was for a time engaged in business. But in 1740 he responded to an earnest request to become pastor of the church over which his father had presided, and this position he retained until his death on Feb. 19, 1782. Mr. B. Wallin published nearly forty sermons, charges, and other small religious books and pamphlets.
BENJAMIN BEDDOME (1717-1795) IS A LARGELY FORGOTTEN 18TH CENTURY ENGLISH BAPTIST PREACHER, REMEMBERED TODAY ONLY AS A MINOR HYMNWRITER. FOR OVER HALF A CENTURY HE SERVED AS PASTOR OF THE BAPTIST CHURCH MEETING AT BOURTON-ON-THE-WATER, GLOUCESTERSHIRE. HE IS WORTH MORE THAN A PASSING GLANCE.

Our love to Him should begin on earth, as it shall be in heaven; for the bride taketh not by a thousand degrees so much delight in her wedding garment as she doth in her bridegroom; so we, in the life to come, howbeit clothed with glory as with a robe, shall not be so much affected with the glory that goeth about us, as with the Bridegroom’s joyful face and presence.
The oldest manuscript I have ever narrated a sermon from, Richard Greenham published in 1598. Two Treatises of the Comforting of an Afflicted Conscience, with Certaine Epistles of the Same Argument:
This distinct honor is to be given unto the person of the Son by virtue of this command of the Father, though originally on the account of his oneness in nature with the Father. And our duty herein is pressed with the highest enforcement; he that honors not the Son, honors not the Father.
