595. The God of Abr'am Praise

1 The God of Abr'am praise, who reigns enthroned above;
Ancient of everlasting days, and God of love;
the Lord, the great I AM, by earth and heav'n confessed:
I bow and bless the sacred name, forever bless'd.

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 power adore,
and sing the wonders of his grace forevermore.

3 The God who reigns on high the great archangels sing,
and “Holy, Holy, Holy!” cry, “Almighty King!
who wast and art the same, and evermore shall be;
the Lord, our 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, Abr'am’s God and mine (I join the heav'nly lays),
all might and majesty are thine and endless praise!
