223. 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 Heaven confest,
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 power;
And him my only portion make,
My shield and tower.

3 Before the Saviour’s face
The ransomed nations bow,
O’erwhelmed at his almighty grace
For ever new;
He shows his prints of love,
They kindle to a flame
And sound through all the worlds above:
Worthy the Lamb.

4 He by himself hath sworn;
I on his oath depend;
I shall, on eagle’s wings upborne,
To Heaven ascend.
I shall behold his face,
I shall his powers adore,
And sing the wonders of his grace
For evermore.

5 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 heavenly lays;
All might and majesty are thine,
And endless praise.
