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 heav'n 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 tow'r.

3 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 pow'r adore,
and sing the wonders of his grace

4 The goodly land I see,
with peace and plenty blest,
a land of sacred liberty
and endless rest.
There milk and honey flow,
and oil and wine abound,
and trees of life forever grow,
with mercy crowned.

5 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 his saints in light
forever reigns.

6 The whole triumphant host
gives thanks to God on high;
"Hail Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,"
they ever cry.
Hail Abraham's God and mine!
I join the heav'nly lays;
all might and majesty are thine,
and endless praise.
