The God of Abraham praise
1 The God of Abraham praise,
who reigns enthroned above;
Ancient of Everlasting Days,
and God of Love;
Jehovah, great I AM!
by earth and heaven confessed;
I bow and bless the sacred name
2 The God of Abraham praise, At whose supreme command, From earth I rise and seek the joys, At His right hand, I all on earth forsake, Its wisdom, fame and power, And Him my only portion make, My shield and tower.
3 He by Himself hath sworn;
I on this oath depend.
I shall, on eagle wings upborne,
to heaven ascend.
I shall behold God's face;
I shall God's power adore,
and sing the wonders of God's grace
4 There dwells the Lord our King, The Lord our Righteousness; Triumphant oíer the world and sin, The prince of peace; On Zionís sacred height, His Kingdom He maintains, And glorious with His saints in light For ever reigns.
5 The whole triumphant host, Give thanks to God on high; Hail, Father, Son and Holy Ghost! They ever cry, Hail Abrahamís God and mine! I join the heavenly lays, All might and majesty are Thine, And endless praise.
