Divine and Moral Songs for Children,
by Isaac Watts.
The author of Logic and The Psalms and Hymns of
Isaac Watts realized that songs were an excellent way to teach theology
and morality to young children. So he wrote these Divine and Moral Songs
for young ones as a teaching tool to augment their catechisms. The
“divine” songs teach children theology: providence, redemption,
thanksgiving, the gospel, etc. The “moral” songs teach character and
morality, the evils of keeping bad company, swearing, lying, etc.
Give 'em Watts, boys! Give 'em Watts!"

the hearts and souls of our children. With God's help we are going to
Give 'em Watts! again." (The Editor)
