162. 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 confessed,
I bow and bless the sacred name
for ever 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 He by himself has sworn,
I on his oath depend:
I shall, on eagles' wings upborne,
to heaven ascend;
I shall behold his face,
I shall his power adore
and sing the wonders of his grace
for evermore.

4 There dwells the Lord our King,
the Lord our Righteousness,
triumphant o'er the world of sin,
the Prince of Peace:
on Zion's sacred height
his kingdom he maintains,
and glorious with his saints in light
for ever reigns.

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 praise-
all might and majesty are thine
through endless days.
