Against Quarreling and Fighting

Written by: Isaac Watts | Biography
 | Quotes (11) |
 Let dogs delight to bark and bite,
For God hath made them so:
Let bears and lions growl and fight,
For 'tis their nature, too.
But, children, you should never let Such angry passions rise: Your little hands were never made To tear each other's eyes.
Let love through all your actions run, And all your words be mild: Live like the blessed Virgin's Son, That sweet and lovely child.
His soul was gentle as a lamb; And as his stature grew, He grew in favor both with man, And God his Father too.
Now, Lord of all, he reigns above; And from his heavenly throne He sees what children dwell in love, And marks them for his own.
