The God of Abraham Praise


6 6 8 4, 6 6 8 4. Genesis xv. 1.

¶ Verse 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 confest;
I bow and bless the sacred name,
For ever blest.

¶ Verse 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.

¶ Verse 3
The God of Abraham praise,
Whose all-sufficient grace
Shall guide me all my happy days,
In all my ways.
He calls a worm his friend,
He calls himself my God;
And he shall save me to the end,
Through Jesus’ blood.

¶ Verse 4
He by himself hath sworn,
I on his oath depend;
I shall, on eagles’ wings upborne,
To heaven ascend:
I shall behold his face,
I shall his power adore,
And sing the wonders of his grace
For evermore.

==6 6 8 4, 6 6 8 4. 2nd. part.

¶ Verse 5
THOUGH nature’s strength decay,
And earth and hell withstand,
To Canaan’s bounds I urge my way,
At his command.
The watery deep I pass,
With Jesus in my view;
And through the howling wilderness
My way pursue.

¶ Verse 6
The goodly land I see,
With peace and plenty blest;
A land of sacred liberty,
And endless rest:
There milk and honey flow,
And oil and wine abound,
And trees of life for ever grow,
With mercy crowned.

¶ Verse 7
There dwells the Lord our King,
The Lord our righteousness,
Triumphant o’er the world and sin,
The Prince of peace;
On Zion’s sacred height
His kingdom still maintains,
And glorious with his saints in light
For ever reigns.

¶ Verse 8
He keeps his own secure,
He guards them by his side,
Arrays in garments white and pure
His spotless bride:
With streams of sacred bliss,
With groves of living joys,
With all the fruits of Paradise,
He still supplies.

==6 6 8 4, 6 6 8 4. 3rd. part.

¶ Verse 9
BEFORE the great Three-One
They all exulting stand,
And tell the wonders he hath done,
Through all their land:
The listening spheres attend,
And swell the growing fame;
And sing, in songs which never end,
The wondrous name.

¶ Verse 10
The God who reigns on high
The great archangels sing;
And, “Holy, holy, holy,” cry,
“Almighty King!
Who was and is the same,
And evermore shall be;
Jehovah, Father, Great I AM,
We worship thee.”

¶ Verse 11
Before the Saviour’s face
The ransomed nations bow;
O’erwhelmed at his almighty grace,
For ever new:
He shows his prints of love, –
They kindle to a flame!
And sound through all the worlds above
The slaughtered Lamb.

¶ Verse 12
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.
