24. Yigdal Elohim Chai (The God of Abraham Praise)

Hebrew -
Yigdal elohim chai v'yishtabach,
nimtza v'ein eit el m'tziuto
Echad v'ein yachid k'yichudo,
nelam v'gai ein sof l'achduto.

1 The God of Abraham praise,
all praises to God's name,
who was and is and is to be,
fore'er the same!
The one eternal God,
before what now appears;
the First, the Last:
beyond all thought
through timeless years!

2 God's spirit freely flows,
high surging where it will;
God spoke of old in prophet's word;
that word speaks still.
Established is God's law,
and changeless it shall stand
deep written on the human heart,
in every land.

3 God has eternal life
implanted in the soul;
God's love shall be
our strength and stay,
while ages roll.
All praise the living God!
Extol that hallowed name,
who was, and is, and ever shall
be still the same!

4 The God of Sarah praise,
all praises to God's name,
who was and is and is to be,
fore'er the same!
The one eternal God,
before what now appears;
the First, the Last: beyond all thought
through timeless years!
