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 and Evans (1769), and 36 in Rippon's Selections (1787). In 1817, a posthumous collection of his hymns was published, in Hymns Adapted to Public Worship or Family Devotion, containing 830 pieces.
