I Sing the Mighty Power of God

Isaac Watts (1674-1748), who wrote some 750 hymns, published a collection in 1715 entitled Divine and Moral Songs for Children. The preface of the hymnal included his intentions for influencing children in their thoughts of the Almighty. Since the children of Israel were commanded to teach their children the ways of the Lord and since the NT directs parents in the same way, Watts desired that his hymns would be “a constant furniture in the minds of children, that they may have something to think upon when alone, and sing over to themselves.”


In his hymnbook was the work “I Sing the Mighty Power of God.”


Stanza 1

I sing the mighty pow’r 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.


Stanza 3

There’s not a plant or flow’r below,

But makes Thy glories known;

And clouds arise and tempests blow

By order from Thy throne;

While all that borrow life from Thee

Is ever in Thy care,

And ev’rywhere that man can be,

Thou, God, art present there.
