Isaac Watts (1674 – 1748)

English theologian, logician, and a prolific and popular hymnwriter.
Isaac Watts
Fly, like a youthful hart or roe,
Over the hills where spices grow.
Watts quotes
From all who dwell below the skies
Let the Creator's praise arise;
Let the Redeemer's name be sung
Through every land, by every tongue.
In works of labour or of skill
I would be busy too:
For Satan finds some mischief still
For idle hands to do.

Watts Isaac quotes
Hark! from the tombs a doleful sound.
Watts Isaac
I believe the promises of God enough to venture an eternity on them.
Isaac Watts quotes
Were I so tall to reach the pole,
Or grasp the ocean with my span,
I must be measured by my soul;
The mind's the standard of the man.
Isaac Watts
There's not a place where we can flee,
But God is present there.
Watts Isaac quotes
Our God, our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Our shelter from the stormy blast,
And our eternal home.
To God the Father, God the Son,
And God the Spirit, Three in One,
Be honour, praise, and glory given
By all on earth, and all in heaven.
Watts Isaac
Lord, in the morning thou shalt hear
My voice ascending high.
Isaac Watts
And while the lamp holds out to burn,
The vilest sinner may return.

Isaac Watts quotes
Hush! my dear, lie still and slumber,
Holy angels guard thy bed!
Heavenly blessings without number
Gently falling on thy head.
Isaac Watts
A flower may fade before 'tis noon,
And I this day may lose my breath.
Watts quotes
There is a land of pure delight,
Where saints immortal reign;
Infinite day excludes the night,
And pleasures banish pain.
Watts Isaac
Let me be dressed fine as I will,
Flies, worms, and flowers, exceed me still.
Watts Isaac quotes
Whene'er I take my walks abroad,
How many poor I see!
What shall I render to my God
For all his gifts to me?
Isaac Watts
A thousand ages in Thy sight
Are like an evening gone;
Short as the watch that ends the night
Before the rising sun.
Isaac Watts quotes
No more let sins and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;
He comes to make His blessings flow
Far as the curse is found.
Isaac Watts
Lord, I ascribe it to thy grace,
And not to chance as others do,
That I was born of Christian race,
And not a Heathen, or a Jew.
Watts Isaac
He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders, wonders, of His love.
