Short biography
Iaasc Watts was an invalid schoolmaster who wrote over 500 hymns. He acquired his gift of poetry from his father, a Southhampton schoolmaster. He became a tutor when he grew up, and then a minister, and received the degree of doctor of divinity from a Scottish university. He was taken ill when thirty-eight years old, and went for a rest at the home of Sir Thomas Abney at Theobalds, which he never left till he died, thirty-six years later. --- Adapted from The Writers of the Hymns, The Book of Knowledge (1912) Vol. VII, page 1998.
