Description

Excerpt from The Works of the Reverend and Learned Isaac Watts, D.D, Vol. 2 of 6: Containing, Besides His Sermons, and Essays on Miscellaneous Subjects, Several Additional Pieces, Selected From His Manuscripts Here, should I begin to describe the long and dismal train of death, the time would fail me. Shall I mention the sickness and the pain, the sharp anguish of the body, and sometimes the sharper methods of medicine to relieve it, all which prove useless and vain in that day: Shall I recount the tedious and uneasy hours, the tiresome and sleep less nights, when the patient longs for the slow return of the morning; and still when the light breaks, he finds new uneasiness, and wishes for the shadow and darkness again? Shall I speak of the dulness of the natural spirits, and the clogs that hang heavy upon the soul in those hours; so that the better part of man is bound and Oppressed, and shut up, and cannot exert itself agreeable to the character of an intellectual being? Besides, all the designs of the mind are interrupted and broken in death; all that the saint intended to do for God, is cut off at once, and his holy purposes are precluded, which often adds to the trouble of a dying christian: Psalm cxlvi. 4. When man returns to his earth, in that very day his thoughts perish. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
