537. The God of Abraham Praise

1 The God of Abraham praise,
Who reigns enthroned above;
Ancient of everlasting days,
And God of love;
To him uplift your voice,
At whose supreme command
From earth we rise, and seek the joys
At his right hand.

2 He by himself has sworn:
I on his oath depend;
I shall, on eagles' wings upborne,
To heav'n ascend:
I shall behold God's face,
I shall his power adore,
And sing the wonders of his grace
For evermore.

3 There dwells the Lord, our King,
The Lord, our Righteousness,
Triumphant o'er the world and sin,
The Prince of Peace;
On Zion's sacred height
His kingdom he maintains,
And, glorious with the saints in light,
For ever reigns.

4 The God who reigns on high
The great archangels sing,
And "Holy, Holy, Holy," cry,
"Almighty King!
Who was, and is, the same,
For all eternity,
Immortal Father, great I AM,
All glory be."
