In an age of simplistic and repetitive choruses, many churches
are rediscovering the blessing of theologically rich and biblically
informed songs. In the latest addition to our A Long Line of Godly Men
Profile series, Douglas Bond introduces us to Isaac Watts, “the father
of English hymnody.” Douglas Bond urges Christians to delight in the
grandeur, beauty, and joy of Watts’ poetry. We pray that you would
regain a sense of God’s majesty as we celebrate the God-given poetic
wonder of Isaac Watts.
