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 eagle’s wings upborne,

To heaven ascend:

I shall behold His face,

I shall His power adore,

And sing the wonders of His grace



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 forever grow,

With mercy crowned.


There dwell the Lord our King,

The Lord our Righteousness;

Triumphant o’er the world and sin,

The Price of Peace

On Zion’s sacred height

His kingdom still maintains,

And glorious with His saints in light

Forever reigns.


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.
