The God of Abraham Praise
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, Forever blest.
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.
He by Himself hath sworn, I on His oath depend,
I shall, on eagles’ wings up-borne, To heaven ascend;
I shall behold His face, I shall His power adore,
And sing the wonders of His grace Forevermore.
The whole triumphant host Give thanks to God on high;
“Hail, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!” They ever cry.
Hail, Abraham’s God and mine! I join the heavenly lays;
All might and majesty are Thine, And endless praise
Daniel ben Judah
