The God of Abraham Praise

~ Thomas Olivers, 1725-1799

Stanza 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

Forever blest.

Stanza 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 pow'r,

And Him my only portion make,

My shield and tow'r.

Stanza 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


Stanza 4:

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 heav'nly lays,

All might and majesty are Thine,

And endless praise.
