    Sir Isaac Watts was gifted by God. Sir Isaac Watts wrote 600 hymns and 52 books including a book on logic used in the Universities. He also wrote books on ethics, psychology, astronomy and geography. He wrote a book on the Psalms in poetic form. Benjamin Franklin had Sir Isaac Watts book on the Psalms published in the United States. When Sir Isaac Watts died a monument was placed in Westminster Abbey to honour him. I am eternally grateful fo my rich heritage of Christian hymns dedicated to the glory of God by Sir Isaac Watts. Flora Forbes

    I like Isaac Watts´poems because they have rhyme, which makes them fun to read, and yet they convey messages that make you think about the path you are taking in life. Is it to everlasting life, or eternal destruction?

Best Poem of Isaac Watts

Against Quarreling And Fighting

Let dogs delight to bark and bite,
For God hath made them so:
Let bears and lions growl and fight,
For 'tis their nature, too.

But, children, you should never let
Such angry passions rise:
Your little hands were never made
To tear each other's eyes.

Let love through all your actions run,
And all your words be mild:
Live like the blessed Virgin's Son,
That sweet and lovely child.

His soul was gentle as a lamb;
And as his stature grew,
He grew in favor both with man,
And God his Father too.

Now, Lord of all, he reigns ...

Read the full of Against Quarreling And Fighting

Hymn 5

Submission to afflictive providences.

Job 1:21.

Naked as from the earth we came,
And crept to life at first,
We to the earth return again,
And mingle with our dust.
