I SING THE ALMIGHTY POWER OF GOD

Isaac Watts loved children even though he had none of his own.  He was a child prodigy himself, rhyming words constantly from a young age – much to the annoyance of his minister father.  Perhaps Isaac loved children because he identified with their youthful exuberance!

 

Isaac Watts wrote many hymns for children which were published in a collection for children called – Divine and Moral Songs for ChildrenI SING THE ALMIGHTY POWER OF GOD, is an example of foundational Christian principles and is considered a hymn for all ages today.  When it comes to teaching kids about God where do you start.  You start…of course…right where the Bible starts – with God as the powerful maker of all things.

 

Note that in the second verse, God creates “with His word”.  This is a nod to the Genesis 1 and perhaps a wink in the direction of the Gospel of John chapter 1…where Jesus is described as the Word.  Watts loved to bring Jesus into any of his songs in any way he could!  This message of who God is, forms a great beginning of faith.
