Famous quotes containing the words isaac watts and/or watts:

    The busy tribes of flesh and blood,
    With all their lives and cares,
    Are carried downwards by thy flood,
    And lost in following years.

    Time, like an ever-rolling stream,
    Bears all its sons away;
    They fly forgotten, as a dream
    Dies at the opening day.

    Our God, our help in ages past,
    Our hope for years to come,
    Our shelter from the stormy blast,
    And our eternal home;
