36. 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 heav'n confessed;
I bow and bless the sacred name,
Forever blest.

2 He by Himself hath sworn,
I on His oath depend;
I shall, on eagles' wings upborne,
To heav'n ascend;
I shall behold His face,
I shall His pow'r adore,
And sing the wonders of His grace

3 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.

4 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 heav'nly lays;
All might and majesty are Thine,
And endless praise.
