Isaac Watts

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents a selection of Isaac Watts's hymns, his greatest contribution to evangelicalism. Watts's hymns had a direct influence on the supplemental songbooks published by John and Charles Wesley as well as other early evangelicals who followed his method. These hymns include “Christ Jesus the Lamb of God, Worshiped by All the Creation,” Revelation 5:11–13; “Godly Sorrow Arising from the Sufferings of Christ”; “Crucifixion to the World by the Cross of Christ,” Galatians 6:14; “Man Frail and God Eternal”; and “The Messiah's Coming and Kingdom”.
