‘Lord, in the Morning’

Here’s a hymn by Isaac Watts that I’d never heard before today–Lord, in the Morning, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.

      1. Maybe not the American colonial Puritans, but the Puritans of Oliver Cromwell’s day were pretty glum – acting and theater were not allowed, and things like that. The Reformers in the north of Europe even frowned on natural beauty being a hindrance to sanctification (although some of those Dutch painters were exceptions to the rule).

        1. Solon wasn’t a Puritan, and wasn’t much of a pill, but he would’ve banned the theater from Athens if it hadn’t come in after he’d already drawn up the laws. He thought it would encourage people to lie.

          But I admit I’d feel pretty strapped if I couldn’t watch any movies.
