Divine and moral songs, for the use of children By Isaac Watts. Page images. Praise for Mercies, spiritual and temporal. Whene'er I take my walks abroad, How many poor 1 see! What shall 1 render to my God, For all his gifts to me?
Not more than others I deserve, Yet God hath giv'n me more; For I have food, while others starve, Or beg from door to door. How many children in the street Half naked I behold! While I am clothd from head to feet, And cover'd from the cold. While some poor wretches scarce can tell Where they may lay their head; I have a home wherein to dwell, And rest upon my bed. While others early learn to swear, And curse, and lie, and steal; Lord, 1 am taught thy name to fear, And do thy holy will.
Are these thy favours, day by day, To me above the rest 1 Then let me love thee more than they, And strive to serve thee best. Great God, to thee my voice I raise, To thee my youngest hours belong; I would begin my life with praise, Till growing years improve the song. Thy glorious promises, O Lord, Kindle my hopes, and my desire; While all the preachers of thy word Warn me t'escape eternal fire. Lord, I ascribe it to thy grace, And not to chance, as others do, r i hat I was born of Christian race. What would the ancient Jewish kings And Jewish prophets once havegiv'n, Could they have heard those glorious tli in as Which Christ revealed, and brought from heav'n ] How glad the heathens would have been That worship'd idols, wood and stone, If they the book of God had seen, Or Jesus and his gospel known!
Then, if his gospel I refuse, How shall 1 e'er lift up mine eyes? For all the Gentiles and the Jews Against me will in judgment rise. The stars that in their courses roll Have much instruction giv'n; But thy good word informs my soul How I may climb to heav'n.
The fields provide me food, and show The goodness of the Lord; But fruits of life and glory grow In thy most holy word. Here are my choicest treasures hid, Here my best comfort lies; Here my desires are satisfy'd, And hence my hopes arise. Lord, make me understand thy law, Shew what my faults have been; And from the Gospel let me draw Pardon for all my sin.
Here would 1 learn how Christ has died, To save my soul from hell; Not all the books on earth beside Such heavenly wonders tell. Google Scholar.
