Verse 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 blessed.

Verse 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.

Verse 3

The God of Abraham praise,
Whose all-sufficient grace
Shall guide me all my happy days
In all my ways.
He calls a worm his friend,
He calls himself my God;
And he shall save me to the end
Through Jesu's blood.

Verse 4

He by himself hath 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.

Verse 5

Though nature's strength decay,
And earth and hell withstand.
To Canaan's bounds I urge my way
At his command.
The watery deep I pass,
With Jesus in my view;
And through the howling wilderness
My way pursue.

Verse 6

Tie 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 for ever grow,
With mercy crowned

Verse 7

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 still maintains,
And glorious with his saints in light
For ever reigns.

Verse 8

He keeps his own secure,
He guards them by his side,
Arrays in garments white and pure
His spotless bride:
With streams of sacred bliss,
With groves of living joys,
With all the fruits of paradise,
He still supplies.

Verse 9

Before the great Three-one
They all exulting stand,
And tell the wonders he hath done,
Through all their land:
The listening spheres attend,
And swell the growing fame;
And sing, in songs which never end,
The wondrous name.

Verse 10

The God who reigns on high
The great archangels sing;
And, Holy, holy, holy, cry,
''Almighty King."
Who was and is the same,
And evermore shall be;
Jehovah, Father, great I AM,
We worship thee.
