Al Dios de Abraham, loor

Representative Text

1 ¡Al Dios de Abraham, loor!
Su nombre celebrad;
¡Al que era, es y aún será,
El solo, eterno Dios,
de todo es Creador;
al único Supremo
Ser cantad loor.

2 ¡Cuán libre y sabio es
su Espíritu al obrar!
Su voz por el profeta aún
nos quiere hablar.
En todo corazón
su ley escrita está;
es inmutable y siempre fiel
en tierra y mar.

3 La vida infundió
en cada humano ser;
su amor, amparo nos será
sin fenecer.
¡Al vivo Dios, loor!
Su nombre celebrad.
¡Al que era, es y aún será,

Paraphraser: Thomas Olivers

Thomas Olivers was born in Tregonan, Montgomeryshire, in 1725. His youth was one of profligacy, but under the ministry of Whitefield, he was led to a change of life. He was for a time apprenticed to a shoemaker, and followed his trade in several places. In 1763, John Wesley engaged him as an assistant; and for twenty-five years he performed the duties of an itinerant ministry. During the latter portion of his life he was dependent on a pension granted him by the Wesleyan Conference. He died in 1799. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A., 1872.… Go to person page >
