Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

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!
