28. 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 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 pow'r,
And Him my only portion make,
My shield and tow'r.

3 He by Himself hath sworn -
I on His oath depend,
I shall, on angel-wings upborne,
To heav'n ascend.
I shall behold his face,
I shall His pow'r adore,
And sing the wonders of His grace

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.
