Isaac Watts

Isaac Watts was pastor of a large Congregational church in London, and wrote prodigiously, although he is most known as being author of over 750 hymns, including "When I Survey the Wondrous Cross", "O God, Our Help in Ages Past", "I Sing the Mighty Power of God", "Alas, and Did My Savior Bleed", and "Joy to the World." Watts' rational mind combined with such artistic talent has made him one of God's greatest blessings to the people of God.
