Isaac Watts, 1674-1748
Lord, what was man, when made at first,|
Adam the offspring of the dust,
That thou shouldst set him and his race
But just below an angel's place?
2. That thou shouldst raise his nature so,
3. But, O! what brighter glories wait|
To crown the Second Adam's state!
What honors shall thy Son adorn,
Who condescended to be born!
4. See him below his angels made;
5. The world to come, redeemed from all|
The miseries that attend the fall,
New made and glorious, shall submit
At our exalted Savior's feet.
