Isaac Watts was a hymn-writing beast! So many to choose from when you look at just his works. Today, I chose “I Sing the Mighty Power of God” to be our Wednesday Hymnody selection. Take some time and read through these stanzas. Take it all in. Jesus, our Creator, our Sustainer, our Savior!
I Sing the Mighty Power of God – Isaac Watts 1784
I sing the almighty power of God,
That made the mountains rise,
That spread the flowing seas abroad,
And built the lofty skies.
I sing the wisdom that ordained
The sun to rule the day;
The moon shines full at His command,
And all the stars obey.
I sing the goodness of the Lord,
That filled the earth with food;
He formed the creatures with His Word,
And then pronounced them good.
Lord! how Thy wonders are displayed
Where’er I turn mine eye!
If I survey the ground I tread,
Or gaze upon the sky!
There’s not a plant or flower below
But makes Thy glories known;
And clouds arise and tempests blow,
By order from Thy throne.
