The Psalms And Hymns Of Isaac Watts by Isaac Watts

HYMN 19 Our frail bodies, and God our Preserver.

C. M.

Our frail bodies, and God our Preserver.

Let others boast how strong they be,

Nor death nor danger fear;

But we'll confess, O Lord, to thee,

What feeble things we are.

Fresh as the grass our bodies stand,

And flourish bright and gay;

A blasting wind sweeps o'er the land,

And fades the grass away.

Our life contains a thousand springs,

And dies if one be gone;

Strange, that a harp of thousand strings

Should keep in tune so long!

But 'tis our God supports our frame,

The God that built us first:

Salvation to th' Almighty name

That reared us from the dust.

[He spoke, and straight our hearts and brains

In all their motions rose;

|Let blood,| said he, |flow round the veins,|

And round the veins it flows.

While we have breath, or use our tongues,

Our Maker we'll adore;

His Spirit moves our heaving lungs,

Or they would breathe no more.]
